  • Flexible price structures provide the most versatile system, with the ability to assign pricing by customer price level assignment, contract pricing for items or categories by customer or by job, price formulas, quantity/volume price breaks, alternate selling units, customer discounts, or pre-defined sales promotions with start and ending dates.

  • Partial pickup/shipment of a pre-order is no problem with Universal’s meticulous back-order tracking. Completely eliminate the mess and clutter of manual notes, reminders and clipboards and never lose track of back-ordered items. System provides immediate notification when the merchandise is received for quick turn-around to your waiting customer.

Stock replenishment tasks are reduced and can be based upon pre-defined stock levels, average quantity sold/”X” # of month’s forecast… or use the Auto-Generate function to slash data-entry time and maximize efficiency.
