Beaver Valley Stone was using an outdated ERP system it hoped to replace with a web-based, customizable solution. They had problems with processes like order picking, bulk item pricing, and managing unique units of measure, which required intense manual work by their customer service reps. Their pricing strategy was based on the square footage of concrete, however, this metric could not be used to effectively track materials as inventory. Beaver Valley Stone needed a system that allowed them to track their products both from a pricing perspective, and an inventory management perspective.
Appficiency came up with a bulk pricing solution that allowed Beaver Valley Stone to simply price their items based on contract price and have these contracts reflect pricing for all impacted customers, saving the organization a lot of time with manual inputs and allowing them to easily have accurate pricing reflected for all their applicable customers. Appficiency also provided Beaver Valley Stone with a customized solution so they could continue to price their items based on square footage and track these items in inventory as pieces. With accurate conversions, this allowed the organization to easily recognize their revenue while also keeping up with their inventory management needs.
