Price management & optimization reports

Informational reports allow for the setup of groups and provide overviews of category details. After your data is imported, either through OpenLink or from Excel files, you must configure the data within the reports that support Price Management and Price Optimization rules.

For example, to use the Line rule, you define line groups in the Line Group report.

These are the Data Maintenance reports that must be populated to support the rules:

  • Anchor Price - Price Drift rule
  • Anchor Class - Anchor Class rule
  • Brand Class & Family - Brand rule
  • Cost Class and Family - Cost Based Pricing rule
  • Competitive Products - Competitive rule, Compliance rule
  • Custom Relationships - Custom Relationship rule
  • Line Group - Line Price rule (Line Price is a golden rule in the Price application)
  • Multiple Price Points - Multiples rule
  • Price/Cost - Price rule - Product Group Limits
  • Product Details - Other Class 1/Other Class 2 rule, Product to Product rule, Tiered Pricing rule
  • Product or Line Relationship - Product or Line Relationship rule
  • Size Class & Family - Size rule

In addition to reports that support rules used in Price Management and Price Optimization, the following general data and diagnostic reports may also be viewed in Data Maintenance:

  • DemandTec by Acoustic Categories
  • Data Health
  • Product DC
  • SKU/Zone Attribute
  • Sellable Items
  • Sellable Items Delete History
  • Transfer Price
  • Unscanned Products
  • VAT

Exception reports allow for data validation. These reports display products for which the initial prices are not adhering to specific rules. For example, the Line Exceptions report shows the products that are not line grouped on the shelf, but should be line grouped according to your strategy. Examine these reports to prevent unintended results while optimizing. See Exception reports for more information.
