What is Multi-UOM?

Multi-UOM, or Multi-Unit of Measure, is like a magical tool that helps businesses manage their inventory in different units. Think of it as a way to handle products that can be bought, sold, or stored in various quantities, like an APPLE IPHONE 5 in individual units or a box of APPLE IPHONE 5.

The Benefits of Multi-UOM in AutoCount:

Imagine you’re a store owner. You sell items in different packaging – an APPLE IPHONE 5 individually or in boxes. Multi-UOM makes this easy. It lets you keep track of stock, no matter the unit. This leads to more accurate inventory records and a clearer view of what’s in stock.

For instance, when you sell a box of APPLE IPHONE 5 , Multi-UOM will automatically adjust the inventory for each individual phone sold. It simplifies your record-keeping and helps you avoid manual adjustments.

Who Benefits from Multi-UOM:

Businesses that deal with various packaging and unit sizes benefit the most. This includes electronics stores, wholesalers, manufacturers, and distributors.

Basic Multi-UOM vs. Advanced Multi-UOM: What Sets Them Apart:

Basic Multi-UOM focuses on providing stock reports in the smallest unit. It’s great for simpler businesses. On the other hand, Advanced Multi-UOM takes it up a notch. It generates stock reports in multiple units, allowing you to see a more detailed picture of your inventory.

Consider a store selling electronics. With Basic Multi-UOM, you’d only see the total number of boxes (eg. 13.4 boxes). With Advanced Multi-UOM, you’d get the total boxes and individual phones (eg. 13 boxes of phones and 6 phones). This level of detail can be a game-changer for businesses with complex inventory needs.

Upgrading from Basic to Advanced Multi-UOM:

Yes, you can upgrade, but here’s the deal: when you upgrade, your old data might not fit perfectly into the new system. You might need to make some adjustments to align everything correctly.

The good news is, you can re-do your past sales and purchases. This way, your inventory will align with the new Advanced Multi-UOM setup.

Repost Sales/Purchase/Stock Transactions

  • Compared to Basic Multi-UOM (which produces stock reports only in smallest UOM), Advanced-Multi UOM produces stock reports in multiple UOM.

  • If you have been using Basic Multi UOM before purchasing Advanced Multi UOM module, your stock balance (transacted earlier) is reported in smallest UOM. To re-categorise these ‘old’ stock according to their UOM respectively (as provided by Advanced Multi UOM module), you need to run a Repost.
