Performing the initial update of your supplier prices and keeping your pricing files current is an important step in ensuring that your bids are accurate. Fast Accurate Bids provides step-by-step instructions in the section called Updating supplier pricing files in this manual, and supplier-specific instructions in the online help within the Fast Accurate Bids software.

There is a display field in the Find Supplier Item area of the Choose Item Page that displays how long it’s been since you last updated the currently selected supplier’s pricing file.

How often to update price lists on the Choose Item Page?

Once a week, the suppliers are adding new items all the time. so you will have the newest items and the must recent prices.

Some suppliers update weekly, some every 6 months or so. It only takes a few minutes to update, and is worth taking the time to update.

Are supplier sale prices on the Choose Item Page?

No, the appeal suppliers do NOT include the sale prices in their downloaded price lists, they only have the sale prices on their websites.

The price lists on the supplier websites are long term prices, where the sale prices are temporary.

Note: Unless you know that your client is going to place the order while the items are on sale, it is a good idea to use the regular price for the item. Using the item sale price in a bid and when the order comes in, the sale price is over this could eliminate any profit on the job.
