SAP Business One saves you time by displaying the ‘Last Prices Report’ from within a price field in a sales or purchasing document.
Dealing with numerous customers and suppliers with variable pricing based on quantity ordered, special agreements, date ordered, etc. is no easy task especially when you’re dealing with a large volume of transactions such as in a wholesale distribution business.
SAP Business One is designed to handle scenarios like these in busy distribution businesses operating in fast-paced environments, where time is money and they require instant information and quick processing of orders.
Boost efficiency when processing sales & purchase orders
One efficiency-boosting feature of the SAP Business One ERP system that will be welcomed by your order processing staff is the ‘Last Prices Report’.
While working in a sales or purchase order, they might want to check the last price for an item before finalising an order. In some ERP systems you have to come out of what you are doing to check the price and then go back and start your order again. SAP Business One is different as you can instantly see all the recent prices while working in an order.
How to display the Last Prices Report in SAP Business One
To display the report just click CTRL + TAB in any price field and the last 10 prices of that item for that customer or supplier will be listed by default.
If you then decide you need to look further into the pricing, you can refine the report by:
- BP Code – Display the last prices for a specific customer or supplier – or you can deselect to display the last prices for all customers or suppliers.
- Display – Enter the number of previous prices to display.
- Special Prices – List or hide special prices for that item in addition to last prices.
- Date – Enter a date to show Special Prices for that specific date.
- Quantity – Enter a quantity to list Special Prices for that specific quantity.
With this information just a click away at any time, your staff can verify pricing straight away if they are on the phone to a customer or supplier while processing an order. This could be the difference between making a sale or not, or could prevent a costly undercharging or overpaying mistake!
