If you work in a business similar to us, you’ll know that creating price lists for your products can be a complicated process.
Analox Sensor Technology offer a wide range of different gas monitoring products across a variety of industries. A lot of our products have different parts and spares available. We offer different products and different discounts to different distributors and also work in Pounds, Dollars and Euros… Yep, sorting out a price list is exhausting!
However, our 2016 price list is looking neater and smarter than ever before, thanks to catalogue software providers CatBase.
We approached CatBase back in 2015 to see how they could help us with our cataloguing issues. Not only did we need to be able to manage individual price list for our distributors, but we needed to be able to update prices quickly and easily.
CatBase provided us with a copy of their database, as well as some additional modules to help with product matching and discount calculations. If we need to create an individual list for a distributor, all we have to do is select the products, type in the discount which needs to be applied and we have a distributor-specific price list in minutes.
The pages in the new price list not only contain pricing information for all products and spares, but also full details about the product, colourful icons to help identify which industries the product can be used in as well as alternative products and interesting facts.
For example… did you know that our HAT (Humidity and Temperature) sensor has been used on space rockets?
We officially launched the new price lists at the start of 2016 and feedback from distributors has been very positive. Plus, the less time we have to spend on sorting out prices, the more time we have to focus on our distributors needs. It’s a win-win.
Simon Lunt, Director of Sales and Marketing at Analox Sensor Technology said that CatBase “will at least halve the amount of time we’ll spend on admin in the coming years… and will assist our distributors in their work with our customers”.
Pat Bensky, CatBase Product Manager said: “Analox had a lot of different variables and complexities that they needed to factor into their CatBase database and price list, but this was not a problem for us. We’re delighted to hear that distributors have given positive feedback about the finished price list and that the Analox team find the system easy to use.”
