Cost Analysis

The cost analysis window is available in a wide range of functions. It allows you to see the details of the best cost and best sell available for an item. You can see the details for multiple locations and dates. Enter the details at the top of the screen and press the Show Costs button. The system will get all the costs and sells and display them at the bottom of the screen. When the costs are displayed, the system will show all the individual deals, charges and rebates that make up that cost. This allows you to really analyse how the costs are calculated.
