The table below describes the key concepts of BRM, you will find these symbols throughout BRM2.0.
|Category||TOP level of your hierarchy. This is how you organise your bikes so that customers and staff can find what they are looking for.|
|Product Family||Level 2 in your product hierarchy. It represents a type of bike, and contains many sizes within.|
Example: Specialized Stumpjumper 27.5"
|Product Line||Level 3 in your product hierarchy. It represents type of bike, but is size specific.|
This is what customers book online.
Example: Specialized Stumpjumper 27.5" - Medium
|Item||Level 4 in your product hierarchy. An actual item of inventory, like a physical bike that a customer rides. This is what customers actually take out your store and return.|
Example: SJ012: (a Specialized Stumpjumper 27.5" - Medium)
|This is how you set prices for your bikes. Each bike belongs to a Price Group, and each Price Group has a profile across durations, using Price Points.|
|Price Point||Each time you want to recognise a duration - such as 4hrs or 1 day, you set this up as a Price Point. Then each of your Price Groups can have a corresponding price for that Price Point.|
Example: 1d (when you support 1 day pricing for your price groups)
|Reservation||What you sell to your customers, one or more Items (or Product Lines) for a defined period of time and price.|
Example: Jun0008-19 (eighth booking in June)
|Instant Booking||An instant booking guarantees that the bikes are available at the time of booking. (The shop may also require that a payment or deposit is made to confirm the booking). Instant Bookings are only available on Paid BRM plans.|

|Booking Request||Customers send the store a request to book a certain bike(s) on certain date(s). The request can be accepted or denied by the store. (for example if the bikes are not available at that time)|
