I'm looking for a web-based collaborative solution for managing the pricing (sales and purchases) of many product references. I couldn't find any existing solution matching my company's needs as they actually consist in a three tiers relationship between products, markets, and suppliers.

  • a same product may have several suppliers who define a different purchase price
  • a same product may be sold to different markets (countries) with specific currency, price and discount
  • when a product has several suppliers, these are manually sorted. This allows the selection of the best supplier within the order creation process

Has anyone worked with this kind of tool already ?

The company I work for has a product which can do about 70% of what you need. If you can afford to shelf over money for this, I suggest to contact them. I’ve asked a coworker who knows about it, and he told me to relay the following information (I’ve omitted a few details):

RUPIO is a web application which supports pricing managers in their task to set prices and implement pricing strategies. Here is a (German-language) page with more infos and contact points, and this is an English one-pager (PDF). You can contact either the Romanian or German office in English.

You can combine it with COPIO – English one-pager, and the (German language) website.
