Concepts

Please provide all the POS files you currently get from distributors so they can be analyzed and configured in the system. Please keep the following concepts in mind when putting together your requirements for the POS system.

  • The POS Mapping engine maps from each distributors format to your specific format. These mappings can be used each month when the distributor submits fresh POS data. In addition, the POS import engine will restrict duplicates based on the combination of POS Number, Part Number, Ship Date and Quantity.
  • The POS engine flags external customer and parts that do not map to internal customer and parts for reconciliation. Once reconciled, these will not show up during the next cycle.
  • The POS module supports custom fields and custom layouts. Please identify any custom field you would like so it can be configured in the system,
  • There are a broad set of POS reports available in the out of the box system

Capabilities

Distributor POS Mapping Engine

The NEHANET POS module allows you to upload sales data from your channel partners including distributors and third party resellers. By integrating key channel and sales information such as end customer, part, price, quantity, inventory and shipment information,you can align your field sales forecasts and production plans to accurately meet product demand to achieve revenue targets while minimizing inventory exposure.

We have a built-in POS Mapping engine that maps from each distributors format to your specific format. These mappings are saved in the system and can be used each month when the distributor submits fresh POS data. In addition, the POS import, engine will restrict duplicates based on the combination of POS Number, Part Number, Ship Date and Quantity.

The POS engine flags external customer and parts that do not map to internal customer and parts for reconciliation. Once reconciled, these will not show up during the next cycle. Moreover the POS module supports custom fields and custom layouts. There are a broad set of POS reports available in the out of the box system.

POS to Opportunity reconcile

Now you can reconcile your POS data to a specific Opportunity in NEHANET. If you upload your POS data into NEHANET, NEHANET automatically attempts to reconcile it to a specific Opportunity for you using the following rules:

  • We auto reconcile where we can (i.e. there is only one Opportunity for that Customer/Part). Here you will find the opportunity Name and ID column filled in the BBB report.
  • If there are more than one Opportunity for a particular Customer/Part, we mark the opportunity name as NONE-UR, so you know you need to manually reconcile the Sales Order to the right Opportunity. You need to do this only once and the system will remember it.
  • If there is No Opportunity for a particular Customer/Part, we mark it as NONE-CR, so you can create the Opportunity and the next time the procedure runs, it will auto-reconcile or mark it as NONE-UR. You need to do this only once.
  • There is a Opportunity and a Forecast, but there is no POS data for that Opportunity. These are flagged as NONE.
