SPA Outlines How Pricing Agreements Drain Profits

Distributors must carefully and proactively manage Special Pricing Agreements (SPAs) to prevent margin erosion. Unfortunately, faced with the complexity of managing thousands of line items, all with different expiration dates, terms and pricing structures, many distributors have allowed their contracts to run on autopilot, resulting in significant value erosion.


This is exacerbated by three common scenarios:
1. Vendor pricing inevitably changes over time, usually increasing distributors’ cost to serve. The problem with keeping SPA agreements the same year after year is that the variables that made them profitable initially – such as volume and vendor pricing – tend to change over time.


2. Sales reps, who lack the time to carefully review existing SPA agreements (and who don't want to rock the boat), request extensions at the last minute. Unless they are equipped with a contract management solution, distributors have no good way to handle these last-minute requests leaving little time to determine which contract extensions are truly warranted as-is and which leave pricing below market.

3. In the absence of data, emotions drive pricing and customer negotiations. Many distributors can’t easily see whether a contract is under-performing. When the fear of losing a customer isn't balanced against the data, even the most lopsided SPA agreements are renewed.
SPA's Contract Management Solution (CMS) has simple options from highly granular and flexible to sweeping and efficient for searching, summarizing and modifying what’s always been a hornet’s nest of data. Distributors can eliminate unprofitable contract scenarios and quickly and efficiently update contract pricing for low-volume and low-sensitivity items, maximizing profits while minimizing customer push-back. SPA provides the analytical tools and online training to drive continuous improvements in adoption and thus profit improvement.

GoFresh Produce Expands Product Line with VAI

VAI, an independent mid-market ERP software developer, recently announced that GoFresh Produce has implementation VAI’s S2K Analytics software solution. GoFresh opened a new processing facility to prepare cut fruits and vegetables for distribution, a service they previously outsourced. The company anticipates more than 300 tons of fresh produce coming through the 50,000 square-foot facility each week. Founded as a family business in 1941, GoFresh has distributed fresh produce, dairy and other refrigerated goods to Oklahoma for over 75 years, and has since grown its distribution to Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri.


VAI S2K Analytics supports GoFresh’s commitment to processing manufacturing orders same-day, offering real-time inventory management and accurately capturing the cost of the labor that goes into each product. Cut produce is a natural extension for the company and a strategic growth opportunity. 


Said David McMillon, Business Analyst at GoFresh. “S2K provides a real-time view into below-minimum orders, current fill rates, products on the dock, pick rates by picker and items on order. The automatic reporting not only frees up time for our employees, but also prevents inventory mistakes, resulting in better customer service.” Since implementing VAI's ERP software with S2K Analytics, the company has moved away from monitoring and controlling inventory manually, significantly reducing inventory loss and focusing employee time on more value-added tasks.

Japan Auto Parts Enhances Customer Experience with Blue Link ERP

Japan Auto Parts is a Canadian importer of used Japanese Engines and Transmissions. The business employs several salespeople, who respond to incoming sales inquiries. Most of these calls are requests for a price on a specific engine or gearbox, together with availability.


Prior to implementing Blue Link ERP, the salespeople would each keep a pad of writing paper handy. Each day, they’d note the date at the top of the next fresh page, and each time when quoting a price they would scribble the person’s name, the part and price quoted. This approach a time-consuming, labor-intensive processes, and on many occasions when the original quote could not be located, they had to honor a price they weren’t 100% certain they had quoted.


Blue Link ERP provided an ideal solution for Japan Auto Parts from strong accounting through serialized inventory tracking and flexible reporting capabilities. In order to tackle the quoting situation, Blue Link utilized its contact manager (CRM) module. Firstly, the CRM maintenance was streamlined so that a salesperson could retrieve an existing contact, or create a new one, in seconds, using the name only. Secondly, a “quick quote” section was added to this screen, in which the salesperson could look up the part then simply type in the quoted price. This “quick quote” was automatically stamped with the date, time and salesperson’s name.


Now, when the prospect calls back, his/her name is punched in and quick quotes issued to that person are displayed immediately. Furthermore, if this is an existing customer, when they accept the quote, clicking one button creates the sales order in its entirety. The writing pads are a thing of the past, and each salesperson is now able to verify quotes issued by any other salesperson at any time.


According to Bruce Wulfsohn, president of Japan Auto Parts, “We are delighted with the service and assistance we receive from Blue Link Solutions. This is especially true of their technical support and customization.”

Townsend Building Supply Streamlines Operations with Epicor

Townsend Building Supply is now a third-generation lumber and building materials (LBM) company. The company started in 1921 as a sawmill and has continued to grow over the years and currently operates five locations in the Southern United States. Townsend wanted to operate with new technology in order to stay competitive in the market.


Townsend chose Epicor's BisTrack solution as it was designed to be open and accessible, with multiple simple ways to look at business data. “The business intelligence functionality in BisTrack software is one of my favorite aspects because—not only for me as the president, but also for my people—we can all easily access the data that they used to have to come to me for,” said Michael Townsend, president. “Everyone can see sales performance, margin performance, truck fill performance, etc. in real time, which help us run the business with fewer interruptions.”


Identifying and strengthening strong customer relationships—and limiting the impact from unprofitable ones—can help drive growth. “We've implemented the BisTrack Customer Stratification tool,” said Townsend. “Having data on our customers is crucial to see how well they are actually performing versus what our perception is of their performance. Our future goals with Customer Stratification are to better engage our customers so that their relationship with us, and ultimately their purchasing, increases as time goes on. We’ll know more about our customers, what they buy, and what they don’t buy so that we can target them with specific marketing efforts rather than just generic.”




Benefits experienced since BisTrack implementation include:
  • Increased employee count from 45 to 85 employees
  • Expanded from two locations to five
  • Sped decision-making based on accurate data because of efficient software
  • Reduced shrink by 50 percent
  • Diminished mistakes involving inventory, stock receiving, and payables
  • Eliminated paper-based dispatch and delivery processes
  • Consolidated deliveries to fewer locations to better utilize people and equipment

Shippers Supply, Inc. Hits Aggressive Growth Initiatives With Tour de Force

Shippers Supply, Inc. an independently owned and operated wholesale distributor of shipping, packaging, industrial and productivity/equipment solutions was founded in 1928 in Hopkins, Minnesota and serves the upper Midwest.


Due to growth, Shippers Supply needed a more complete solution that would provide CRM, SFA (sales force automation), BI (business intelligence), and would sync data from their Infor ERP system.

According to Jeff Schuppe, Director of Sales and Marketing at Shippers Supply, “The Tour de Force CRM system gives us the ability to link the past with the future. We are very excited to tie our sales pipeline into our strategic business planning process. It will help us to make more calculated business decisions as we continue with our aggressive growth initiatives.”

Why You Need a Quotation Management System

Question: “I’ve already got an ERP system, why do we also need a Quotation Lifecycle Management (QLM) system?
Answer:  A good Quotation Management system complements your ERP. ERP “quoting modules” are typically quote “forms” that can be sent to customers and turned into orders if the business is won. Quotation Lifecycle Management covers a complex and collaborative process gathering inputs and approvals from all areas of your organization, with the objective of winning more business based on submissions that are high quality, complete and delivered on time.


A QLM system provides access to quote related master data information outside the confines of the ERP and requires only minutes to setup and use. Business users from Engineering and Sales will be able to leverage a system that works without the restrictions of ERP but still provide the database support, work-flow control and accountability that quickly and accurately allows development of a superior response to your customer’s request.


A good QLM allows for development and use of customer specific quoting templates, process and output definition and will also provide the analysis tools and what-if comparisons built around key quote elements, such as production and sourcing location, volume scenarios and sales forecasts or other non-standard cost drivers. These “price development” tools and techniques are not a normal part of an ERP system.


QSTRAT has been providing Global Sourcing, Quoting and Costing Software Solutions for more than 15 years to Manufacturing and Distribution customers in North America, Europe and Asia.

Intermex Foods Improves Business Operations With Vision33

Intermex Foods is a wholesaler in San Diego, California - a subsidiary of PAGASA, a leading provider of pastas and cookies in Mexicali, Baja California. PAGASA has been in business for over 50 years and their products can be found in Mexico, the United States, and Canada.


The company has grown by double digits and was ready to take their business to the next level. Using manual business management tools including a combination of Quickbooks, Excel spreadsheets and binders made it harder to manage data and stay on top of daily operations as orders increased.


As Intermex Foods continued to grow, tracking profitability became a bigger challenge. Without a system in place to track key performance indicators and customer buying patterns, the staff did not have access to the business intelligence needed to expand with confidence. It became abundantly clear that Intermex Foods had outgrown their systems.


Intermex Foods decided on Vision33 to implement SAP Business One Cloud. “SAP Business One was the only solution that covered all of our requirements,” says Rafael Benavides, Project Manager at Intermex Foods. After implementing a single, enterprise resource planning (ERP) cloud-based solution, Intermex Foods put away the binders and began to realize the value of having all their business information in one, centralized location. Reports that used to take them months to compile are now available to them in a matter of minutes with data they can trust.


This comprehensive solution helped dramatically streamline operations to a point where the company experienced 34% in savings immediately upon implementation. By choosing to implement SAP Business One Cloud, the staff can access company data anytime, anywhere.
