Flexible Unit Setup & Management
Units of measure are used for stock quantities in orders and reports. For example, a stock quantity of 1 could either mean one single item or one box of items.
Units of measure are used to calculate stock quantities and values. The Sales Order Processing and Purchase Order Processing modules use the units of measure specified for a stock item to calculate the value of sales and purchase orders, and to determine the quantities in which the orders are shipped.
You can use more than one unit of measure for an item, so you can use different units for trading than the unit used to record stock. CloudInn's Inventory module helps you audit & track that process.
The ratio between the stock unit and trade units is expressed in terms of the base unit.
The stock unit measure is the unit that you use to stock the item.
Trade unit measures are additional units that are used to buy, store or sell the item.
