Margin Management

Control margins throughout the quoting process

FIG. 1.10 - Margin input via GP value or percentage.

The ability to set and customise channel margins is an indispensable part of channel business operations and the visibility and management of these margins is integral to the ChannelCenter offering.

ChannelCenter enables companies to control their margin throughout the quoting process, as well as save time via features such as automated partner discounting. Easy access to historic customer quotes and invoices gives users a consolidated view of information and assists the decision-making process when providing new quotes to customers.

Speed up quoting and invoicing with easily adjusted margins

FIG. 1.11 - Incrementally adjust margins on products before sending quote.

Margin amounts can be adjusted for every quote and direct invoice which is created on the platform. On the creation and editing of invoices and quotes, ChannelCenter’s calculation engine determines GP% or GP value as the inputs are adjusted. These values are automatically multiplied by unit and/or device quantity and totalled in real-time.

In addition to being able to predefine margin amounts on specific products once-off, users can set a global margin which is applied to all products in the catalogue. This is particularly useful when setting margins for specific customers and their available product book.

Financial functionality has been specifically tailored to your business as a distributor or as a reseller.
