TributeTrulinX by Tribute, Inc. helps you deal with changing tariffs surcharges. Tariffs create administrative burdens for industrial distributors. Prices must be continually monitored and updated as vendor price sheets are retracted and revised, and customers demand detailed information that is often hard to come by. TrulinX by Tribute, Inc. can help distributors handle tariff surcharges on purchases. The tariffs are calculated as a percentage and these percentages can differ for different product lines or items. When a quote is created, TrulinX will determine if a tariff is applicable and, if so, the tariff will be applied. Adding, removing, or changing the surcharge percentage is quick and easy within the TrulinX software system.
