What is a volume discount?

Volume Discounts offers the ability to automatically calculate user volume discounts for equipment.

As users schedule time on equipment calendars, they may reach a point when their new reservations are eligible for discount. Core managers can set up equipment discounts, which will be automatically applied to user reservations when conditions for application are met.

Users and managers can view a summary of applied discounts on an event from the moment it is being scheduled, all the way throughout the workflow, until the user is invoiced.

Once your discount group is activated, users can schedule equipment and receive discounts on usage after reaching a threshold. The discount is always a percent off the original price. Their reservations show new rate and indicate that they receive a discount. (Figure 1)

When a reservation crosses a discount threshold, then the system smartly splits the reservation and discounts the hours that are above the threshold. In the example below (Figure 2), the first five hours that are within the threshold, but discounts the final two hours, which are above the defined threshold.

Figure 2: Final two hours of the reservation have exceeded the threshold and are eligible for the discount.
