Enterprise price control at your fingertips.
Central Price Book extends the functionality of SSCS' Computerized Daily Book by providing cloud-based, enterprise price book control from the location you choose.
Control prices from a single location.
Update and transfer prices throughout the enterprise, or to and from sites or CDB zones established to organize stores by geography or other pricing-sensitive classifications. Price adjustments can be made by percentage, margin, or dollar amount. Know what is available and what the price will be, so your stores can begin selling the product in the right department and at the right price when the items hit your store.
Protect price book integrity.
CPB acts as a gatekeeper through which you can review price changes before allowing them into your master price book. It stages, for your approval, updates to pricing records imported into CPB from vendors and the CDB. New items from the same sources also are staged. Review, accept, and edit potential changes and additions before you commit them to your price book, then push them out to the sites you desired.
Foodservice one and done.
CPB is fully capable of handling complex pricing permutations like foodervice recipes, ingredients, and units of measure. Enter them once and pass them from site to site as needed without having to set them up again and again. The relationship of subordinate ingredient items to their “parent” recipe items and costs is completely retained whether you create them in the CDB or Central Price Book, itself.
Get the vendor pricing you expect.
CPB’s Negotiated Price Manager provides an easy way for you to compare the costs you’ve negotiated with your vendors (for a specified time period) against the actual values that appear on purchase transactions recorded in the CDB. It’s an easy way to identify and document variances between the agreed-upon and received cost. Create records that represent your negotiated cost sets, add items to them as needed and label them so they can be recalled for reference. Delete and modify those negotiated cost sets when you make an error or your agreement with the vendor changes.

Central Price Book is part of the Computerized Daily Book, SSCS' full scale C-store management package. Central Price Book integrates with the CDB, so that mass price changes that you create in Central Price Book are distributed both the CDB as well as all of your registers.
Central Price Book is used to monitor and modify prices at a multi-site level. It is essentially a price book built for a geographically dispersed business. The Computerized Daily Book, on the other hand, is used to manage all aspects of a C-store, including purchasing and selling, accounting, deliveries and inventory counts, and so on.
Central Price Book can send price changes to registers, interacting directly with technologies at your sites according to your instructions. Transaction Analysis also integrates with your registers, but Transaction Analysis is a passive monitoring program, designed to help you intercept problems with suspicious activity at the register and view sales statistics at a systematic level. Put simply, Central Price Book is made to modify prices, and Transaction Analysis to analyze transactions.
