I have 13 years of hands-on experience working with every stage of the software development lifecycle, from scratch to finished product to deployment. At AdvancePro, I lead multiple development teams who design, develop, deploy and maintain the platform. My goal every day is to produce a product that is innovative, secure, easy to use, and solves the problems that hold our clients back from growing.
Managing pricing effectively is one of the most critical parts of running a successful business. Many companies have complex pricing schemes that change frequently or have markups and discounts for certain customers or products. Managing this process presents a difficult challenge, and costly pricing errors are common.
The new pricing tools in AdvancePro v11.4 make managing your pricing much simpler. Our tiered system allows users to control five different levels of pricing, which gives you the power to control pricing changes of increasing specificity with ease. V11.4 has added the ability to incorporate price lists into the global pricing interface that can be created or imported via Excel, and can be assigned to specific customers or customer groups. Additionally, users can now control contracted pricing details with set expiration dates.
Sales is the lifeblood of business, and ensuring your sales force has access to the up-to-date information they need to sell your products or services is key. However, it is often important to only give your reps access to needed information while limiting access to unnecessary information. For example, you may not want a sales team member to see the their colleagues’ sales stats, and only want them to only be able to pull reports for their own sales. It might be necessary that your sales team sees real-time inventory levels but not to be able to change stock levels or delete SKUs. Every organization is different, and this update gives users the ability to control the level of access that their sales teams need to have.
