In order to achieve the proposed objectives, a multidisciplinary team was set up with the participation of all the departments involved in DinoSol. This team was led by 3Hold Technologies, so that, working intensely for three months, was able to design and implement the current solution, with which all the objectives were achieved.
To achieve these goals, SAP Retail’s standard rebate agreement management functionality has been implemented, enabling these concepts to be included within the price schemas of purchasing and sales documents. In this way, it is possible to keep a close eye on the margins and amounts of cumulative rebate agreements.
The creation and maintenance of rebate agreements was integrated into the tool that the sales department uses regularly, minimizing to the maximum the data that the user had to report and streamlining its maintenance. In addition, users can quickly adapt to the new functionality.
The project was divided into two stages, where rebate agreements play an important role in both buying and selling.
In purchasing, the process is less critical, as the volume of transactions is lower, and all the data is available to determine the discount. The data that allows them to be included in the calculation schemes is, in most cases, the supplier, since they are registered at that level and, therefore, their inclusion in the calculation scheme is simpler. When this data is determined, it has a direct impact on the weighted average price of the item, so that the correct margin is carried forward in the sale.
