Understanding CU Price
The CU Price (or Count Unit Price) is the dollar value of a single unit of inventory for a given Item. Bevager and Foodager use the Last Purchased Price to calculate the value of your inventory, and the CU Price is where you can view this price.
Updating the CU Price
Price fluctuations are part and parcel in the bar and restaurant industry. The CU Price of an Item will update when you Approve your invoices and confirm that you are being charged a different price by your vendor from previous invoices.
In the example below, we thought we would be charged $264for a case of Absolut, but they've actually charged us $99 more for the case. In order to approve this invoice, we must enter the correct Amount the vendor is charging us, by clicking on the Item Name in the Item column.
Now that the Amount is correct the invoice is reconciled, and we can click Approve Invoice.
If the price change if over your Promo Threshold the price change will be flagged, like in the screenshot below. For more information on managing your Promo Threshold, see the article titled "Understanding Promo Threshold". From here you can click Approve Invoice if you want to accept the New Prices as your new CU Price, or if the price change is temporary or promotional, you may want click the tick box under Disregard to have the system ignore the price change.
You can always see the current CU Price for your items by going to the Item List (under Items & Vendors), or the page titled Inventory, under the Inventory menu item.
