In response to subscriber and data provider requests, Animalytix developed the ACT Platform to facilitate the reporting of monthly transactional sales information between specific distributors and their manufacturing partners.
The ACT platform incorporates the daily sales transaction transmissions into a standard CSV file, based on an EDI 867 format and segregated by manufacturer. The CSV file, posted monthly to a secure web portal, includes all sales transactions of a given manufacturer’s products provided to ALX from throughout the ALX data provider’s network.
Within each monthly summary report, subscribers can access up to 36 unique data elements as provided by the ALX participating distributors. These data elements provide a level of detail sufficient to allow manufacturers to assess sales performance by territory, state or region; monitor client-specific purchasing histories; process customer rebate payments; and support other client-centric sales and marketing initiatives.
Delivery of the monthly transaction data or defined reports will occur by the 9th business day of each month.
