Conducting any amount of business through channel partners also requires us to enforce tighter auditable controls over POS and debit reconciliation as they directly impact financial reporting. Integrating our ERP platform with Model N's Revenue Management Suite greatly facilitates this process for us.
Redwood Shores, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
Model N Inc., the leader in Revenue Management solutions, today announced that Avago Technologies, a $1.5B leading provider of analog and mixed signal semiconductors and other electronic components, has deployed Model N's High Tech Channel Revenue Management and Global Price Management solution. This software provides Avago's worldwide channel partners with up-to-date sales information on Avago's products, as well as design win, inventory, and pricing services to support and expedite the selling process. Avago also uses Model N to capture accurate and relevant sales data to effectively manage its channel sales opportunities.
"Designed specifically for semiconductor companies, Model N's solution gives us greater visibility into design registrations, reduces quote turn around times and improves the ease of doing business with distribution partners," said Bob Rudy, VP & CIO at Avago Technologies. "Conducting any amount of business through channel partners also requires us to enforce tighter auditable controls over POS and debit reconciliation as they directly impact financial reporting. Integrating our ERP platform with Model N's Revenue Management Suite greatly facilitates this process for us."
Model N provides the tools for Avago to streamline communications and transactions with its channel partners and to manage more accurate and relevant data. Avago is using Model N's Global Price Management to process quoting and pricing information and Model N's Channel Revenue Management to extend self-service registrations to the channel and to manage debits, point of sales (POS) and commissions.
"For semiconductor and electronic components manufacturers who operate in a fiercely competitive environment and sell through channel partners, it is imperative to simplify and streamline communication and transactions with the channels to capture more business and enforce margin and pricing agreements," said Rich Fitchen, general manager of Model N High Tech. "Relying on extensions to legacy ERP or CRM systems to address unique industry business requirements has proven more expensive than successful, and companies such as Avago Technologies are improving their processes by adding complementary systems like Model N High Tech Revenue Management to significantly increase deal conversion, gross margins, and responsiveness to customers."
