The purpose of a security group is to restrict or limit access to various functions within simPRO based on a user's role in your organisation. For example, the accounts department may not require access to quotes or pre-builds, or you can also limit the value of quotes or purchase orders issued by a particular user or user group.
Security groups are defined in System > Setup > Security Groups.
