They are ideal for a standard set of charges for a job, task or work action. By creating Pre-Built templates you and your team have them at your fingertips when adding charges, quoting, ordering and billing. They are designed to make your quoting and charging easier to record.
You need not think about what the standard charges are, you have them right their in your pre-built template. It removes the opportunity for missed charges on quotes and invoices OR omissions from purchase orders.
Another great feature of Pre-Built templates is you can convert any quote, order or invoice into a Pre-Built template. That way you can call on that bundle of charges more easily in the future.
