Families (Main Menu / Data / Inventory / Families)

 

 

Overview

 

Pricing families allow grouping varieties of the same item whose prices change as a group, thus eliminating the need to change each individual item when a price change occurs.

 

An example of a pricing family is Campbell's Red and White soups. Campbell's Chicken Noodle, Campbell's Minestrone, and Campbell's Tomato are all varieties of Campbell's soups. These will typically be priced the same making them an ideal candidates for a pricing family.

 

Another example of a pricing family is Coca Cola 12 OZ cans. Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Coke Zero, Barq's and Sprite are all varieties of Coca Cola 12 ounce products. These are also prime candidates for a pricing family.
