You can store your entire product / service catalog (including suppliers) in GleanQuote to enable your team to easily create consistent quotes. Within GleanQuote, products and services are lumped together and are called Products.
Products and Suppliers are organized similarly, with each record type having a main list view of all the products/suppliers and a detail view for each individual product/supplier. You can manually create new records for each, or you can bulk import your entire product catalog. Each of the main list views have three dot actions on the right side of each row that allow you to Edit, Delete, and Duplicate.
Additionally, you can select rows using the check boxes on the left side of each row to see additional actions like bulk delete, bulk edit and export. Each main list view can also be customized by toggling on/off columns, resizing, and drag and drop reordering.

You can specify the fields that display on the new creation modal in Company Settings/Customization/Widget Fields. Toggle Creation Visible on for the fields that you want to display on the new product creation modal. You can also specify which fields are required on that same screen.
Once you have created a new product, you can view the product overview page by clicking the product name in the product list view.
You can edit any of the information about the product by clicking the pencil button in the top right corner of each information widget.
BASIC INFORMATION WIDGET:
Taxes: Use this field to specify whether the product is included in the tax subtotal calculation on the quote.
Tags: You can add as many tags to a product as you need. Tags for all record types, including products, are created/managed by a user with an Admin role in Company Settings/Customization/Tags.
Category: The Category field is used to establish a product hierarchy. A product can only belong to one category. Default categories are Product, Service and Special, but you can add/edit/move categories by clicking the Manage link or New Category Link. If no category is selected for a product, then it will be found in the root folder of My Categories. You can specify a Category for a product when you create it, or when you edit it. You can bulk move products to different categories by checking the box next to them on the product list view and clicking the Move To drop down next to the search bar.

Configurable - Product that has options
Simple - Product that does not have options

Sales tips can contain rich text, images, links and attachments. If the product Sales Tip field is not empty a small icon with the letter i will display next to the product name in the quote editor. On click, the sales tip will display in a modal. Sales tips can be bulk imported instead of editing each product separately.

The last step of the bulk edit is a summary describing the edits that were made.
