The Save Mart Companies takes steps to ensure that all products offered to the consumer at a reduced price receive the appropriate allowance.
“Product grouping” or “line coding” items is a standard industry practice that facilitates promotional planning as well as accounting.
Occasionally, product in a “family” that is subject to an allowance, especially new and discontinued product, may be omitted from a Deal sheet.
Despite such an omission, the supplier remains responsible for supporting the promotion of the entire product family.
At the time of billing, The Save Mart Companies may request that the supplier submits a revised Deal sheet to support the missing items.
Suppliers with exceptions (e.g., pallet modules or shippers) are asked to follow up with their Customer Solutions Merchant - exceptions to be noted on the DemandTec contract.
