About Pricing Administration
Siebel Pricer allows you to work with the following:
- Price lists, rate lists, and cost lists. Create price lists, rate lists, and cost lists. For more information, see the following chapters:
- Volume discounts. Give customers a discount if they buy in volume. For example, if a customer buys more than one hundred units, the customer can get a 10 percent discount. For more information, see Creating Volume Discounts.
- Three types of promotion pricing:
- Aggregate discounts. Give customers a discount if they buy a group of products. For more information, see Creating Aggregate Discounts.
- Product promotions. Create promotions that can be selected in quotes, orders, and catalogs, can be tracked as assets, can have commitments tied to them, and can have rules and penalties defined for future changes. For more information, see Creating Product Promotions.
- Discount matrices. Create a matrix of rules to define price adjustments. For more information, see Creating Discount Matrices.
- Attribute adjustments. Create a matrix of rules to define attribute-based pricing. Attribute adjustment provides flexibility to map rules to attributes or fields in any business component. For more information, see Creating Attribute Adjustments.
- Products with components. Define pricing for products whose components customers can choose. For example, when a customer buys a computer, the customer can choose to add peripherals such as a CD-ROM drive. For more information, see Setting Up Pricing for Products with Components.
- Pricing reports. Create a variety of reports to track your pricing policies. For more information, see Creating Pricing Reports.
- Customizing pricing logic. Pricing logic is based on pricing procedures, so it is fully configurable. For more information, see Siebel Pricer Technical Reference.
