How Do I Update Inventory Prices?

This screen is used to automatically update your prices based on changes in the cost of inventory items. In order to use this screen you must have assigned a Markup Code to the selected parts. In addition, you may want to examine the settings on the Enter Part Categories screen under the Inventory menu to determine whether prices will be updated based on changes in the Base Price or Average Cost of the selected items. One particular category may be updated, and/or only one particular manufacturer. Select those in the Category and Manufacturer fields. If both fields are blank, all items (regardless of category and manufacturer) will be updated.

After your prices have been updated you will probably want to print new Price Books using the Price List report under Inventory → Reports.  If you have Flat Rate Pricing setup within ESC, you may also wish to update your rates at this time; see Updating Flat Rate Pricing for more information. 

Note:  Any mobile technician using the ESC Laptop Client for Windows will need to re-provision their device to download the latest pricing information. Technicians using the ESC Mobile Tech app for iOS or Android will automatically see the updated information when adding items to an invoice or quote.
