From Multi-LCL to a Global Sales System
The ‘Multi-LCL’ feature (multi-location, multi-currency, multi-language, multi-company) is now available for the entire Klopotek publishing solution.
A (separately licensable) 'multi-LCL environment' is characterized by the fact that the user interface can be run in multiple languages, while the Klopotek software ensures that it is not necessary to re-enter data, perform currency conversions, or separate workflows, and that everyone works on the same metadata.
In addition to the user interface, it is necessary to adjust various functions in order to make Klopotek O2C (Order to Cash distribution system) multi-LCL-capable. The enhancement options allow the configuration of a sales system which makes it possible to operate diverse distribution locations on a central installation and perform specific invoicing runs for each country.
The scope of this ‘Global Sales System’ is not restricted to the increased versatility in the invoicing system (e.g. the option to sell one-off and subscription products of independent companies under a single proprietor), the contractor functionality for subscription models, or the enhanced tax routines with a system of configurable rules: the basis for the royalty calculation can also be controlled in accordance with local criteria. You can configure whether inter-company revenues or end consumer invoices are used as the basis for calculating royalties.
A ‘Global Sales System’ which lives up to the name must, of course, also include support for inter-company settlements, so that sales to international subsidiaries can be examined and evaluated from the perspective of both the recipient and the copyright holder.
