Opportunites with Loss Making Products/Services

[ Edited ]



I've been tasked with measuring the feasability of using ACT for our needs and I could use a little help.


We're a B2B Telecoms Company and so in our opportunities I need to be able to show profit made from selling tariffs (profitable services) but balance these against the cost of handsets, which are usually supplied at a loss.


I have tried including the cost of the handset (say £100) and having the price at £0 but this isnt reflected in the total profitability of the opportunity.


Am I missing something or is this not possible?


Edit: I'm using ACT! by Sage 2009 (11.0) Version

It's a bit of a workaround but... if you enter the handset cost as a negative number into the Adj. Price box (and leave all the others empty) the profit calculation will be correct.
