Central Price Book is part of the Computerized Daily Book, SSCS' full scale C-store management package. Central Price Book integrates with the CDB, so that mass price changes that you create in Central Price Book are distributed both the CDB as well as all of your registers.
Central Price Book is used to monitor and modify prices at a multi-site level. It is essentially a price book built for a geographically dispersed business. The Computerized Daily Book, on the other hand, is used to manage all aspects of a C-store, including purchasing and selling, accounting, deliveries and inventory counts, and so on.
Central Price Book can send price changes to registers, interacting directly with technologies at your sites according to your instructions. Transaction Analysis also integrates with your registers, but Transaction Analysis is a passive monitoring program, designed to help you intercept problems with suspicious activity at the register and view sales statistics at a systematic level. Put simply, Central Price Book is made to modify prices, and Transaction Analysis to analyze transactions.
