Flintfox have experience implementing pricing and trade promotional management systems for food service in a number of regions, integrating our highly configurable trade functions with various ERP solutions.
As most contracts used in this sector are quite price focussed, having a pricing engine capable of handling all necessary complexities, and integrated with sales order entry is imperative to maintain invoice accuracy - along with good customer relations, and to avoid the unnecessary administrative costs resolving later deductions.
Redistributors are also very central for effective distribution to the indirect customers. It is important therefore that a system provides efficient management for all trade processes between the manufacturer/distributor and the redistributor/indirect customer and the volume moved between each.
Flintfox Trade Spend Management for Food Service provides the necessary solution, including the following functions:
- Complex and advanced pricing
- Auto-payments of billbacks and allowances to redistributors
- Automated validation of deductions
- Local Marketing allowances paid to the redistributor
- Auto-verification of redistributors sales trace data and subsequent payments to indirect customers

If you want the sales teams to use a system, put the actuals in there. Sales teams love to have that information as soon as it is available. They want to get the story all lined up.
