Is there a way to save pricing or costs on items so they stick?

Good afternoon,

We purchased your software back in October I believe and I have a question
for you. We are general contractors that use your program when we are
quoting our clients homes that have been damaged from hurricanes or water
damage and some times the cost are very inaccurate from what we actually
have to pay out in real world expenses and we need to adjust the unit cost
per item. Is there a way that we can do that and it will save it
permanently so that every time we select "paint walls (1 coat)" it will
have the new cost that we have adjusted it to instead of reverting back to
what the program is selected to have? If not, do you have a program like
that where the new cost will stay in the system instead of being over
ridden every time with the programs original cost?

As of right now, I have a list of items that I need to change the prices on
every time I use them because their cost are too low for what we actually
pay for the materials and it makes the program very inefficient and it
takes a lot more time for us to do our quotes this way. I am trying to
figure out a way to utilize your tool in the best possible way so we can
maximize it's potential. Please advise at your earliest convenience.
Thank you and have a great day!

    Hello!

    Thank you for reaching out to Simsol Support. Yes, we do provide users with a few different ways to accomplish what you're looking for, the most commonly used one is the 'LPT' or Local Pricing Table. This table allows you to store pricing for various items straight from your Virtual Scope Sheet.

    To utilize this function of Simsol, open up a claim and head into your Scope of Damage. In the Scope of Damage find the item you wish to edit. Once found click to select the scope you wish to change and towards the bottom, you'll see the 'Override' button located in the Mini Override Screen. When selected you'll be able to make changes to the pricing of the item (materials, labor, equipment, or total) and select the 'LPT' button. This will save the pricing for any estimate created using the same pricing table.

    I've attached some screenshots to this discussion so you can follow along. If you require additional assistance or would like to know about other options I'd be happy to help!

    Kind Regards,
    Chelsea Balderson
    Director of Support
