resulting in issues of data integrity.
The large volume of transactions, especially with managed care
organizations overwhelms stand alone and departmental systems.

Administration

Vistex software simplifies the process for developing and managing
contracts.

contracts, along with supported pricing programs and performance rebate

Contract Types
Tier Contract: Pharma industries or customer segments may have a
common set of terms and conditions that are applicable to all contracts
that are created for customers in those industries or segments. A Tier
contract that contains this common set of terms and conditions. This
creates a contract that has GPO linked to it with all terms and condition.

Individual Contract: Individual Contract means the contract which is


done between Customer and the manufacture/supplier of the product, no
other party in involved in the same.

Base Contract:

Base Contract is the one which is associated to set of


customer who is member of a buying group where as Tier contract is
attached with buying groups organization. All other features of Base
Contract is same as Tier Contract.

Group Membership
With the group membership feature of the Vistex software, you can manage
the complex business relationships between contract organizations and
affiliated clients and plans.
The application maintains an exact copy of your customers membership list
and automatically matches it to your customer database according to
external cross-references.
Data collected from your customers files, third-party data providers, or EDI
transactions are loaded through applications that are integrated with
customer master data.

Because you establish filters, policies, and participation rules to control


contract participation, the software can automatically determine contract or
member eligibility, updating contracts without manual intervention.

Contract Best Price Logic


We can have multiple Group / Individual / Tier Contract in contracts
master data for a given Customer and Material combination on a given
pricing date.
Customer should always be charged with the best/lowest available
price among all the available contracts.
Logic to determine the best possible price to the customer is called
the BEST PRICE LOGIC.

http://www.sapyard.com/

Contract Best Price Logic


Check Contract with all the buying group associated for the customer
Exclude Contract based on various blocks
Check the customer validity dates in Tier and Individual Contract
Check the Material with validity dates exist in the contracts selected
in above steps
Eliminate contracts where customers are excluded as well as
products do not have valid contract price and or sell price

http://www.sapyard.com/

Contract Best Price Logic


Apply contract sequences and use exit flag till contract price found

In case we do not find any Exit flag then consider all contracts that
are captured so far
Contract have both contract price & sell price available, then sell
price will be used.
Marks ups/downs are applied to contract price i.e Vendor,
Dropship, Contract Override etc
Select best contract price (Lowest Price) among various contracts
