You can display the catalogue entries in Description order, Lens Number order of Manufactures Number order.

 

You can also scroll up and down to find the item you are checking on or use the Search (type in part of the description) to find the part you are after.

 

In the Sample above you can very clearly see that if a customer was after a LHF Door Glass there are 3 different ones and the operator can see very clearly that the Tint type is required to get the correct part and Correct price.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE INVOICING SECTION OF PARTSLINK ACCOUNTS CAN BE SETUP TO AUTOMATICALLY SELECT THIS PRICE FROM THE CATALOGUE TO PUT ON THE INVOICE AS WELL.

 

This completes the WHOLE process. Customer rings for price, is quoted the same price by ALL staff members and then when the Invoice is done the SAME price is charged as well.

 

How many times have you felt silly because you quoted a different price to someone else.
