Price Update Tool in Ascend HQ simplifies your price update process.

It allows you to search your product catalog for any price changes, update the price in your system, and print new labels for the product you have on-hand.

Search for price updates from a particular supplier, store location, and time range and let the Price Update Tool do the work.

Use the supplier’s suggested information 
Before you get started! Take note: Updating supplier pricing will also overwrite other product information, such as supplier product descriptions and case quantities.
