Pricing Controls

When an item and selected vendor combination do not reflect the best possible price, the operator receives a message with an option to view the pricing history for that item.

Automatic side by side vendor price comparison, job specific pricing, and the ability to send a purchase order or BOM to your preferred vendors for quoting allow you to stay on top of market prices to ensure you are getting the best price, on every item, every time.
