I have a question and want to know how others deal with this.
Before XTRF, when we had a project that had a project minimum AND a discount/surcharge, we did the math in this order:
1) Apply Project Minimum 2) Apply the discount/surcharge 3) Get total
That would lead to this type of fee (number are just to show an example):
* Project with $10 receivables. 1) Apply $50 minimum. 2) Apply 25% rush fee 3) Total is $50+25%=$62.50
However XTRF does the math like this:
1) Apply discount/surcharge 2) Apply the project minimum 3) Get total
That leads to this fee structure for the same receivables:
* Project with $10 receivables. 1) Apply 25% rush fee. 2) Apply project minimum. 3) Total is $50 applied to ($10 + 25%) = $50.00
Our concern is we already have agreements with our clients on how we charge them and we don't want to negotiate changes.
Does anyone else deal with this? Our work around is for projects with project minimums AND discount/surcharges, we end up adding fees and project minimums as positive or negative receivables. However, that is a work around and a bit challenging for our PMs. Any other thoughts on this?
XTRF, is there a way to have an option on how discounts/surcharges are applied?
