Catalogue

How to Use the Catalogue

Overview

Your simPRO catalogue functions as a price file that forms the basis for developing stock inventory. When you add catalogue items to a job, they provide Estimated costs in the job breakdown, and do not represent Actual costs until they have been receipted to the job from a purchase order or allocated from stock.

In simPRO, you can organise and maintain your catalogue structure by manually creating groups, up to three levels of subgroups, and items, or alternatively, import generic or supplier-specific catalogues. Learn more in Generic Catalogues and Specific Catalogues.

Once you have created or imported your catalogue items, you can then search and adjust them.
