After several requests, IMS have developed a mechanism to transfer customer price lists from a spreadsheet on to System21 to update customer price lists. This list will be automatically uploaded for each price type, discount group and item code. The utility also has the facility to delete customer price lists.
By properly using effectivity dates, prices can be uploaded in advance which ensures invoices are priced correctly. This will maximise profitability and negate the need to investigate pricing errors whilst maintaining customer service levels.
This project enabled business critical price files to be updated quickly, efficiently and accurately, whenever required. This saved a considerable amount of manual input and the errors that result and will probably allow the client to update prices more frequently.
