Task vs Addon

Explaining the difference between a task and an addon

A task in Profit Rhino can have two sets of pricing, task pricing and Add-On pricing. Both Pricing schemes utilize the same parts, so the cost and retail price of the parts is the same.  The only difference between Task and Add-On price is the amount of labor that we're billing out for.

Add-On's are meant to allow you to discount (by time) a task to allow your technicians to offer additional services with a discount in addition to the main repair they were originally dispatched for.

Add-On Time is often considered the pure "Wrench Time" of a task. This means the total time actually on wrench doing the repair. Task time is wrench time plus additional sales and setup/clean up time required to perform the task that your company should take into account on every service call.


Lets see how this works 

Head over to a task record in your Profit Rhino Account. Notice the section for task and Add-On setup.

Task Time and Addon time in the default database are determined using the table below:


Now lets head over to the calculations tab on the task to see how this reflects on the task we used in the example above:

Here we can see that because we have the Add-On enabled we can now see the Add-On Total table that shows the difference in task price. In this example we see the difference in labor cost going from a 60 minute task to a 30 minute Add-On to move the landed task price from 150.00 for the primary task to $75.00 for the addon (Value Rate).
