One of the most important cross components for driving profitability and customer engagement at the same time with SAP Business ByDesign is the built-in price and tax calculation engine. It allows to:
- drive profitability with smart & efficient pricing strategies by providing cascading price lists which calculate channel, customer or even campaign specific prices in real-time
- automatically get the right price by calculating price, discount, freight and tax for each customer individually
- display not only price but also cost and margin
- to use and see the result e.g. in the sales order user interface or the sales order and price list webservices which can be consumed in an 3rd party solution.
The integrated managerial approval process for quote/order processing and price lists allow also to give discounts which go beyond the standard strategies but to still be in control.
