Price Levels are changes that can be made on a large scale to set an alternative price for items depending on the Event and Vendor at a Venue. For example, items may be priced differently during a sporting event than they are during a concert.
From a corporate view, this would be used when corporations are utilizing the same menu items, but different prices based on store locations. There are several areas of Connect that will require configuration concerning Price Levels.
- Price Levels – Creating/Maintaining specific Price Levels that can be activated at the Venue level.
- Items/Prices – Set the price for the Item and each of its available Price Levels.
- Vendor - Assign a Price Level to an individual Vendor.
To access Price Levels, navigate to the Price Levels button within the Items section of the Enterprise Connect Dashboard.
