QuoteWerks Price Uplift & Drop utility

For use with: QuoteWerks v4.0 build 17 to v23.0 build 5.13

About the User: This project was commissioned by a client who sells IT equipment and services. When building a quote for a project, they will commonly want to Uplift or Drop the Price of some Products to meet a budget.

Project Brief: Using QuoteWerks’ Price Modifier features to mark Line Item Prices up from Cost works very effectively. Once a quotation is complete, in order to enhance their Margin by Uplifting Prices or have to Drop Prices in order to meet their prospect’s budget, they wanted to be able to select several Line Items, enter the amount to Uplift / Drop the Price by and then pro-rata the amount across the selected Line Items to apply the total Price change.

The screenshots below illustrate a very simple 2-line example quotation. From the initial 30% Markup Pricing, we know that the prospect has a budget of £200K so we decide to enhance our Margin by uplifting the Line Item Prices by £200. The screenshots show before and after the Price Uplift:
