Editing Matrix Items

We know that market conditions and product lines are constantly changing. That’s why we built TAKU to be as flexible as possible. Where other systems are strict with product type, TAKU lets you do everything from combining existing products together into a matrix, to unlinking child products from existing matrix products. The best part? These changes won’t affect your reporting needs as historical product sales will still be visible.
