How Datalliance SPR Works
Using Datalliance's proprietary process, Datalliance SPR provides a single unbiased point of control for calculation of distributor paybacks for sales related to suppliers' special pricing agreements.
Datalliance SPR performs just one payback calculation based on agreement terms clearly specified in advance, and using information most appropriately provided by each party.
- Flexible agreement definitions support virtually any special pricing agreement.
- Collaborative data management simplifies the process and minimizes data errors.
- Suppliers just maintain a product catalog, pricing, and agreement terms
- Distributors just maintain customer numbers and periodically submit POS data
Transparent & Auditable
Both parties can be confident in the accuracy of payback amounts.
- Online visibility of agreement terms makes it easy to jointly review and confirm each agreement
- A full audit trail provides calculation details that make audits fast and easy
As an Internet-based service, Datalliance SPR makes it easy to submit information and receive calculation results.
- Online maintenance of information makes set-up of agreements fast and easy
- File transfers using just about any method and format make it easy to send high volume POS data files
Secure and Reliable
Datalliance SPR leverages the same computing, communications, and solution delivery infrastructure built through years of experience operating collaborative commerce solutions such as vendor managed inventory (VMI) and POS data analysis
Datalliance SPR replaces what may be significant in-house manpower and systems costs with a reasonable and predictable monthly subscription fee that is kept low because the cost of system operations is shared among a large community of suppliers and distributors.
- Reduced manpower for data acquisition and maintenance, calculations, auditing, and dispute resolution eliminates significant labor costs
- Software as a Service (SaaS) approach eliminates the cost of software, hardware and systems management associated with in-house systems
- Monthly subscription eliminates the need for up front capital expenditures and makes the cost of operation highly predictable
