Configuring Product Types

     

    Each product purchased by a firm can be categorized into a specific product type. This is the high-level categorization for the assets that are bought. For example, Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Flash can be categorized under the product type Software, while HP Inkjet Printer can be categorized under the product type Printer. In general, product type is a parent category under which you can group each of the specific assets owned by your firm. Proper categorization helps in estimating how much has been spent for purchasing each of the product type assets (Printer, Scanners, etc.), how much assets in each of the product types are available in the organization and so on.
