Project description: 

This project will allow a service ratio to be applied to fixed and unit prices when charging and estimating.

The service ratio is determined by:

  • the Practice Location; and
  • a product's type

This can be used by practices that provide an out-of-hours clinic to charge a premium for products.

Charging and Estimating

When charging/estimating, the prices will be determined by:

  • retrieving the service ratio for the product
  • multiplying the product's fixed and unit prices to determine the price, rounded to 2 decimal places

If a product doesn't have a product type, or there is no service ratio for the product type and practice location, a value of 1.0 will be used for the service ratio.


Service ratios are established by adding a relationship from a Practice Location to a Product Type. The default service ratio is 1.0.

These will be displayed on a new tab of the Practice Location editor, named Service Ratios.

Relationship to Pricing Groups

This project is similar to Pricing Groups in that they both support different prices for a product at different Practice Locations. Pricing Groups provide:

  • different pricing of individual products, rather than just types of products
  • the ability to enter a rounded price.
  • product price history

It could be used in conjunction with Pricing Groups if required.
