Discount Bands

EVE enables you to set a variety of discount bands to be used in your store. You can make these specific to a particular customers, such as Club Members, and restrict their use amongst staff as required. EVE can set a minimum formula to ensure that each product is never sold for less than cost price plus 10%, for example.
Inventory Locations

If you have large amounts of stock, you can set specific locations for your inventory. This enables you to know, for example, that a particular mask is on Shelf 2 , Row 4.

Profit Centres

Profit Centres allow you to group together Stock Types for reporting purposes.  For example, you may want to create a Profit Centre called Diving Equipment and then assign stock types such as Regulators and Masks to it.  Using the Sales Reports you can then report on sales of each Profit Centre.

Stock Types

This section contains information on all the different types of stock you keep. You can then make universal changes to just one specific stock type.


You can list all your suppliers and quickly access information on sales and profit margins.

Tax Bands

This section allows you to add and edit tax bands.
