Introducing Rockton Pricing Management 

Let’s Talk Pricing 

When it comes to pricing there are many ways to calculate the price of your products or services. Most standard ERPs, like Acumatica, are limited in what it can offer your business when it comes to pricing. This is why we created Rockton Pricing Management (RPM). It can handle the complex calculations and scenarios that you may encounter in your business.  

RPM can easily manage things like multiple price lists, royalties, rebates, customers, anything that can get cumbersome when you’re trying to enter them into your system. 

Save Time with Automation 

With RPM you do not have to set up automation multiple times. Versatility is built into RPM – Price Filters and Price Calculations can be used more than once. Perform imports to easily add or edit data. You’ll save time with data entry or setting up next year’s prices. Plus, you’ll eliminate human error with automation.  

Simplify Complex Scenarios 

Complex scenarios have you scratching your head? With RPM you can automate them!  

Here’s an example: Say you are a waste management company who has percentages of different chemicals and waste products that make up a gallon. We can create percentages and charge different percentages for liquids versus solids, and the combination of the two. 

Don’t be afraid to get granular in your pricing calculations – Rockton Pricing Management (RPM) is up to the challenge! 

RPM also a multi-currency pricing platform. So, whether you’re shipping to Canada, The Caribbean, or Europe, it can account for different currencies and apply your unique pricing scenarios in those cases.

A Giant Calculator

RPM is an independent pricing engine that sits outside of your ERP. It is SQL based and lives in its own environment. Think of RPM as a giant calculator.

Example One: Select a customer, their shipping address, and the items that are being purchased. RPM will take this combination, make a calculation, and push the price back to Acumatica. Need to make an adjustment? No problem.

You can pick a customer just like you normally would, your shipping address, and your items. That Pricing Engine for GPcombination is then automatically calculated in Rockton Pricing Management and a price then pushes back over for you in Acumatica. We’re taking the data, doing the calculations, and pushing a price back. In addition to that, we are able to push back adjustments.

Example Two: If you are trying to track an advertising fee, a customer incentive, a rebate to a vendor, or a commission, all of that can be done in a single line item. Your salesperson won’t need to make any extra journal entries – the adjustment is automatically pushed through to Acumatica.

Say Hello to Greenshades

Payroll is one of the most critical, yet most overlooked, aspects of running an efficient and effective business. Flawlessly execute payroll week after week, and it goes unnoticed. However, if you make a small error, the response is immediate and vocal.
