Flintfox Advanced Pricing Engine Performance Verified by Lionbridge TechnologiesPublished: Thu, September 10, 2015
The latest offering from Flintfox International delivers with lightning fast results
AUCKLAND, New Zealand — September 10, 2015 — Flintfox International, a leading global provider of advanced trade relationship and trade promotion management software solutions and services, announced today that its nPrice solution has been independently tested and verified by Lionbridge Technologies. Lionbridge, a leading technology company providing independent testing services to the Microsoft Partner program, performed load testing to determine the best calculation time that nPrice is capable of achieving and has proven the software’s sub-millisecond response times.
Designed to handle the advanced pricing requirements of trade promotion and rebate programs, nPrice has been verified to deliver lightning fast response times, regardless of number of users, customers, vendors, products, or even concurrent price requests. Through the multiple runs performed, a proven response time of 0.058ms was achieved, far exceeding the benchmark of 0.25ms set by the Flintfox team.
“We built Flintfox nPrice to be the most advanced and high performing complex pricing engine available.” said James Lett, Chief Technology Officer, Flintfox International. “Ultimate performance was one of our key requirements during the design and development of nPrice so it’s a fantastic result when independent testing exceeds our highest expectations.”
nPrice will benefit organizations that struggle with accessing accurate real-time pricing for e-commerce, EDI, and online catalogues as well as mobile devices or ERP order to cash. By utilizing open standard web service protocols, nPrice grants access to the same real-time pricing data from multiple locations. The nPrice solution can be deployed to extend the life of an existing ERP or create a powerful stand-alone solution to deliver enterprise level pricing performance, providing a single source of pricing across omni-channel environments.
"nPrice is a truly disruptive innovation allowing our clients to tailor pricing and promotions, in context of the circumstances, at that moment in time. The days of the ERP chugging through generating preconfigured price look up tables are over, no matter what ERP platform you are using." says Mike Ridgway, CEO Flintfox International "The last remaining challenge, as with any disruptive technology is convincing our clients what we have is real. Hopefully the Lionbridge validation and endorsement will go some way to doing that."
As one of the most important factors that influence a customer’s choice of products and services, organizations need to have complete control over their pricing. In today’s market, it is not good enough to update pricing once a week, or even daily, organizations need to have real-time, calculated pricing, with approved changes instantly visible and available.
nPrice runs outside of SQL and ERP frameworks enabling it to scale up to several thousands of requests per second on basic hardware. Separating the price request capability from the SQL/ERP/TPM environment dramatically improves overall system performance.
