Going through a price increase can be a real hassle for a bakery owner. Balancing the need to protect margins across hundreds of products without pricing products out of the market is a difficult task. The process of actually making the necessary data entry changes to all of your records, materials, and systems can be a terribly time-consuming process as well.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
With BakeSmart, price increases can be made in just a few minutes, using the software’s built-in tools and features.
Follow these steps to quickly update prices across an entire product line or selection of products.
From the Home screen open the menu, go to Lists, and then Products.
First, we need to find the products being updated. To find all products, click the Red Circle next to the Quick Search field or use the Search button and put an asterisk * into the Product Name field and click Continue. Otherwise, use the search fields available (by category or subcategory, for example) to find the products that are getting their prices changed. If multiple searches need to be completed to find all of the products that are going to be changed, use the Tag All function after each search and then select "Tag - Find" and all of the tagged Products will appear in the list.
Click on the Edit button and select "Pricing" from the list.
By default, the Price Level is set to the main price level, but can be changed by clicking on the drop down Price Level field.
Next to the Price Level field are the following fields:
Increase or Decrease
amount (entered by user)
Dollars or Percent
round to nearest
Once all of these values have been selected, click the "Apply to All" button. The updated prices will appear in the New Price column. You may also type into the "New Price" field to override any entries. Click the "Save" button next to the New Price to set the "Current Price" field to the "New Price" field. To set Current Prices for all Products to their New Prices, click the green Save All button.
Quick Tip: to get all prices to end in $X.X9 round to nearest 10 cents and then Decrease Prices by .01 and do not round.
