About Customer Templates

Customer templates make entering customer settings easier and more accurate. You can set default values for many customer fields based on the type of customers that you maintain. During entry, the user simply selects the customer template and the default values are completed automatically. Customer templates can avoid costly mistakes, such as assigning the incorrect class code, which could result in incorrect pricing.
