Environment Setup
The environment setup steps and potential workshop constraints must be reviewed in order to successfully
complete the workshops in this course.
Your Epicor training environment, in which the Epicor demonstration database is found, enables you to experience
Epicor functionality in action but does not affect data in your live, production environment.
The following steps must be taken to successfully complete the workshops in this course.
1.

Verify the following or ask your system administrator to verify for you:
Your Epicor training icon (or web address if you are using Epicor Web Access) points to your
Epicor training environment with the Epicor demonstration database installed. Do not complete
the course workshops in your live, production environment.
Note It is recommended that multiple Epicor demonstration databases are installed. Contact
Support or Systems Consulting for billable assistance.
The Epicor demonstration database is at the same service pack and patch as the Epicor
application. Epicor's education team updates the Epicor demonstration database for each service pack
and patch. If your system administrator upgrades your Epicor application to a new service pack or patch,
he or she must also download the corresponding Epicor demonstration database from EPICweb > Support
> Epicor > Downloads and install it. If this is not performed, unexpected results can occur when completing
the course workshops.
Your system administrator restored (refreshed) the Epicor demonstration database prior to
starting this course. The Epicor demonstration database comes standard with parts, customers, sales
orders, and so on, already defined. If the Epicor demonstration database is shared with multiple users
(that is, the database is located on a server and users access the same data, much like your live, production
environment) and is not periodically refreshed, unexpected results can occur. For example, if a course
workshop requires you to ship a sales order that came standard in the Epicor demonstration database,
but a different user already completed this workshop and the Epicor demonstration database was not
restored (refreshed), then you will not be able to ship the sales order. Epicor's education team has written
the course workshops to minimize situations like this from occurring, but Epicor cannot prevent users
from manipulating the data in your installation of the Epicor demonstration database.

2.

Log in to the training environment using the credentials manager/manager. If you are logged into your
training environment as a different user, from the Options menu, select Change User.

3.

From the Main menu, select the company Epicor Education (EPIC06).

4.

From the Main menu, select the Main Site.

Customer Pricing Course

Pricing Overview

Pricing Overview
Pricing strategies are ways in which the price of a product can be determined. Use Price List Maintenance to
set up price lists for customers. You can establish customer price lists by customer bill to address, customer ship
to address, or customer group.
In Customer Maintenance you can establish minimum and maximum discount limits in the customer record.
If you use additional discounting, the Epicor application calculates prices based on the price lists of the customer
and adjusts the total discount to match the limits established on the customer record.
The Quote Management module provides tools to define a cost plus markup strategy. You can establish markups
for the company, the customer, or the part class.

Epicor ERP | 10.0.700.2

Pricing Strategy

Customer Pricing Course

Pricing Strategy
The Epicor application utilizes a pricing system that gives you great flexibility when determining prices. It is
designed to work with a variety of business practices. By partly or fully using this feature set, you can define a
regular procedure for creating and maintaining prices for your products.
There are two primary forms of pricing discounts available, Quantity Based and Order Value Based. If you use
both discounts, the Epicor application applies the Quantity Based discount first. Once the Quantity Based or Order
Value Based decision is made, the discount percentage from the customer billing record is applied.
1.

Quantity Discount Rules


Quantity Based discounting refers to discounts based on the total quantity of one part. The Epicor application
checks the quantity on the sales order line and compares it to quantity breaks defined by the part. For
example, the sales order line has a quantity of 75. The Epicor application finds a price list defined for the
customer on the order and the part. That price list shows quantity breakouts of 50, 100, and 150. The Epicor
application applies the price for the quantity of 50.

2.

Order Value Based Discount Rules


Order Value Based discounting refers to the total sale amount of the sales order. The Epicor application
compares the total price of the sales order for the customer and then compares it to discounts in a price
group. You can define a price group to include discounts based on the total sale, total quantity of the order
line, or both. If you use both, the Quantity Based discount is applied first. Price groups are defined by
customer and product group.

3.

Pricing Strategy Hierarchy


The Epicor application uses a specific hierarchy for price list selection. The hierarchy begins with the specific
customer record level and moves up to the general level, which is the customer group. If a price list is not
associated with a customer record or customer group, the price defaults to the unit price on the part. The
flow of the price list search begins with the part and then searches for information as follows:

The Hierarchy
Following is the price list hierarchy. Notice it starts with the most specific customer record level and moves up to
a more general level, the customer group.
1. Ship To Location Each customer can have multiple Ship To locations. A price list can be added to a Ship
To location record. The Ship To > Detail sheet contains a Price List button. This level has the highest preference
in the hierarchy. If a price list is attached at this level, its price values are used.
2. Customer The next hierarchy level is the customer record, as you can assign price lists to the entire customer.
Add price lists on the Billing > Detail sheet.
3. Customer Group The most general hierarchy level is the customer group. You can divide customers into
different groups, such as Aerospace and Automotive. Add price lists in Customer Group Maintenance.
4. Part - When a price list is not assigned to a customer or customer group, the Epicor application looks to Part
Maintenance for a defined selling unit cost and uses it as the base price on the order.

Epicor ERP | 10.0.700.2

Customer Pricing Course

Company Configuration

Company Configuration
Use Company Configuration to define the module options for companies in the Epicor application. Use these
options to define how this company will interact with the module licensed for it.
When you install the Epicor application, one company record is created by default. You first use Company
Maintenance to define overall options like email setup, document attachments, and external BAQ sources. You
then use Company Configuration to define how the company interacts with the various modules you have
licensed.
Tip You can purchase a Multi-Site license that enables you to set up multiple companies within Company
Configuration. To do this, first create the company within the Epicor Administration Console. You can then
display the new company in this program and configure it as necessary.
Menu Path
Navigate to this program from the Main Menu:
System Setup > Company/Site Maintenance > Company Configuration

Company Configuration Sales Modules


Orders Sheet
Use the Modules > Sales > Order sheet to define the options for the Order Management module.
Use the Apply Order Based Discounts Automatically check box to control sales order entry configuration. If
you select this check box, it activates order value based pricing as the default. If your company prefers to optionally
activate order value based pricing, you can do this manually in the sales order.
The Book Sales Orders and Apply Order Based Discounts Automatically check boxes default in the
Demonstration Database.
Quote Sheet
Use the Modules > Sales > Quote sheet to define options for the Quote Management module.
Use the Generate Quantities from Price Breaks check box to control the quantity break pricing structure. If
you select this check box, the Epicor application searches for price list information for the part and the customer.
If a price list is in place, quantity discounts are applied as part of the quote price. That pricing is then pulled or
pushed into the sales order when the quote is won.

Maintenance Programs

Customer Pricing Course

Maintenance Programs
This section describes the maintenance program setup required to create and activate a pricing strategy.

Customer Maintenance
Customers are businesses to whom you sell products and services. Use Customer Maintenance to enter customer
records.
Customer records contain the information that establishes default customer values for several programs in the
Epicor application. In the customer record, no adjustments are required.
Menu Path
Navigate to this program from the Main Menu:
Financial Management > Accounts Receivable > Setup > Customer
Financial Management > Deferred Revenue Accounting > Setup > Customer
Financial Management > Multi-Site > Setup > Customer
Production Management > Material Requirements Planning > Setup > Customer
Sales Management > Customer Relationship Management > Setup > Customer
Sales Management > EDI > Setup > Customer

For CRM users, the Main Menu appears as:
Customer Relationship Management > Sales and Marketing Management > Setup > Customer
Customer Relationship Management > EDI > Setup > Customer
Customer Relationship Management > Order Management > Setup > Customer
Customer Relationship Management > Quote Management > Setup > Customer
The following sheets and fields are used in Customer Maintenance.

Detail
Use the Detail sheet to enter billing information for the current customer, including currency, tax options, billing
terms, shipping terms, and other transaction information. This billing information is used on sales orders and
other documents sent to this customer.
Important Use the Billing > Bill To sheet to enter the bill to address.

Epicor ERP | 10.0.700.2

Maintenance Programs

Price Lists
Use the Price Lists sheet to rank the priority of these lists for the current customer or current ship to location.
Price lists define prices for your parts. You set up price lists to reflect seasonal price changes or special price breaks
you give to specific customers or ship to locations.
When you create an order, the part number is compared to the price list assigned to this customer sold to record
or ship to location.

Price List Maintenance


Use Price List Maintenance to assign a specific price or discount to a part or product group. It can be used to
set up different price lists for different customers. This function is valuable if you want to sell the same products
to different customers with different price lists.
Price lists can account for different currencies and different situations (for example, promotional, retail or seasons).
A price list must be assigned either to a specific customer (bill to or ship to) in Customer Maintenance, or to a
customer group assigned to a specific customer. The price lists then default into quotes or orders for that customer,
based upon the part(s) entered on the line(s). Price lists require that a start date be defined; however, no end
date is required for the pricing, so the prices can stay in effect for as long as you need.
You can create price lists in either the Quote Management module or Order Management module.
However once a price list is created, its pricing defaults are used in both Opportunity/Quote Entry and the
Sales Order Entry.
The Epicor application determines order and quote from the defined price lists in a specific hierarchy:
First, it uses the price defined for the specific customer/part combination.
If no price exists for the specific customer/part combination, it uses the price defined for the customer group/part
combination.
Finally, no price exists for the customer group/part combination, it uses the applicable part price.
Note For a price list and its discounts to be applied, the price list, customer, quote, and order must have
matching currencies. If the customer or quote/order record is in a non-base currency, and the price list is
in base currency, the price list logic does not apply.
Menu Path
Navigate to this program from the Main Menu:
Sales Management > Customer Relationship Management > Setup > Price List
Sales Management > Order Management > Setup > Price List
Sales Management > Quote Management > Setup > Price Lists
For CRM users, the Main Menu appears as:
Customer Relationship Management > Sales and Marketing Management > Setup > Price List

Price Group Maintenance


Use Price Group Maintenance to create and update price groups in the Order Management module.
Use price groups to establish discounts based on the order value, quantity, or both. Price groups provide a
powerful pricing strategy when used with product groups. The relationship between a price group and a product
group provides pricing for the parts that belong to that specific product group.
A price group can have multiple product groups assigned to it. A product group can only belong to one price
group. You can override pricing on specific quote and order lines.
Menu Path

For CRM users, the Main Menu appears as:
Customer Relationship Management > Order Management > Setup > Price Group
Customer Relationship Management > Quote Management > Setup > Price Group

Discount Options
Price Group Maintenance allows you to establish Quantity or Order Value discounts based on the product groups
identified in Part Maintenance. The Epicor application reads the part number on the order line and checks for a
product group. Once the product group is known, the Epicor application checks for the price group defined for
that product group. If it finds a match, the Epicor application calculates a price using the price based on the price
group.
Three discount options are available:
Order Value based discounts can be assigned based on the total value of the sale.
Quantity based discounting is defined by the quantity of the part on an order line.
The price group can assign discounts based on both the quantity of the part and the order value.

Markup Maintenance

Customer Pricing Course

Markup Maintenance
Use Markup Maintenance to enter material markup percentages for specific part classes or against specific
project role codes. These percentages are linked to a markup record. You must create the markup record before
you can define material markup percentages.
When Cost Plus Invoicing is selected on a Project, the invoice process calculates the cost of Labor, Material, and
Subcontract, and then applies the markup percentages.

Quote Markup Strategy


Corporate Default Markup
The Quote Markup table allows you to define markup rates for each cost category used in the method of
manufacture. This includes: material, material burden, subcontract, labor, burden, and miscellaneous. The
percentage is defined in Opportunity / Quote Markup Maintenance and can be overridden using the Quote
Worksheet. The markup percentages you establish in Opportunity / Quote Markup Maintenance default into the
Quote worksheet. If a record exists, the Epicor application looks to the quantity break on the quote and provides
a Markup price or a Profit price using the following calculation:
Markup price: Price = Cost + (Cost x Markup%)
Profit price: Price = Cost / (100% - Markup%)
A markup record can be flagged as the default set of rates. The quotes you enter through Quote Management
automatically display the rates in the default set on the Quote Worksheet. You can also manually edit the default
entries specific to the quote.
Part Class Markup
Many volatile markets exist in the economy, such as stainless steel, copper wiring, and oil. If your company uses
part classes, a markup definition can be defined specific to the class. Parts included in a part class are subject to
the markup percentage. When you enter a quote using manufacturing details, the application reads the parts
listed on the details. It then searches for the part class and uses the defined markup record as the default.
Customer Markup
Use Opportunity/Quote Markup Maintenance to define a markup record specific to a customer. Once you
attach the markup record to the customer records, quotes generated for that customer reflect the default markup.
If a record for a specific customer cannot be found, the application searches for a default markup record.

Price List Verification


The Epicor application provides an intricate automatic pricing strategy. The Epicor application contains several
tools to help determine and adjust pricing when necessary.
Locking Prices
The Lock Unit Price check box, in Sales Order Entry on the Lines > Detail sheet, allows you to freeze the
original price. When selected, this disables automatic pricing for the order line. This check box is automatically
enabled for prices that display on an order line pulled from a quote line. This is because quantity and value
discounts are applied to the price at the quote level.
Price List Overrides
The Override Price List check box is located in Sales Order Entry on the Lines > Detail sheet. If selected,
the Epicor application allows you to override the selected price list. The field menu displays other price lists
attached to the customer record; a manual price override is also available.
Price List Inquiry Tracker
The Price List Inquiry Tracker allows you to review, evaluate, and change pricing information. This tracker
allows you to search for price lists based on specific criteria. You can then modify the price lists in a what-if
mode, enabling you to experiment with different pricing scenarios.
This tracker also provides a direct link from a sales order to its corresponding price list. The search criteria for
an existing price list is done by customer, customer group, part number, or product group. Additional search
fields include currency, warehouse, and quantity. You can enter multiple field searches to refine the return.
Press the Submit button to initiate a search based on specific criteria.
Importing and Exporting Price Lists
You can export price lists to an external file and import them back into the Epicor application by selecting the
Import and Export features from the Actions menu in Price List Maintenance. The export feature allows
you to export a price list to a .txt or a .csv file. This feature also allows you to manipulate prices using other
tools, such as Microsoft Excel, and import them back into the Epicor application.
Once the file is in a .csv file format (Microsoft Excel text file extension), you can alter pricing and import the
price list file back into the Epicor application by selecting the Import feature from the Actions menu.
