Before you start configuring Prospect CRM's built-in special pricing, it's important to know whether this functionality is right for your business. If you're using Special Pricing set up in your Accounts /Inventory Management system and it's working perfectly fine for you, then you should continue using this form of special pricing.
However, this isn't the case for everyone, as some Accounting Systems don't offer special pricing functionality. Plus, by having the special pricing managed in Prospect CRM, it can save your Sales team time switching between 2 different systems. Learn more here about Prospect CRM's built-in special pricing.
