My head and neck are so sore I seriously thought I may be having a stroke yesterday. Well I don't think it's that, thank goodness. But from crunching prices over the last 3 days my eyes, head, neck and back have been worked this week.
I was wondering what system anyone could suggest for keeping track of the different Cartridges after I've figured out the price. My forumula of coming up with the price goes like this.
I have a paper with customers info, including the make/model of printer
and sometimes the cartridge number.
Starting out I'm still getting prices from several suppliers. Five to be exact. I have almost narrowed it down to 2 for toner
and 2 for ink. Anyways I use pull the cartridge from both staples and the suppliers writing down each price. Then I take both prices and use my formula to come up with the price I'm going to charge the customer. I also make a note of the profit I will make.
Then I input the prices into (SEE THIS
)s quote. I print out a copy and email the customer a copy.
My question is does someone have a system they use to log the prices after they have already found them. I understand prices change and I'll have to adjust etc.. But to begin with I'm already starting to run across some of the same cartridges. Maybe just list them alphabetically in word or something ??
I'd appreciate any input,
