It's common to sell, purchase, produce and inventory items using different units of measure (UoM). For example, you might purchase an item by the pallet, sell it by the case, and inventory it by individual units. Or perhaps you purchase some items using the Imperial system, but sell and inventory using the Metric system. There are countless variants when it comes to managing multiple units of measure, and these complexities multiply exponentially when you consider all the various pricing and discounts to associate with each unit of measure.
So how can you easily manage this?
SAP Business One introduced advanced Unit of Measure Groups in version 9.0 that makes it much easier to purchase, sell and inventory items with different units of measure. Where it used to require manual effort to manage, now you can just create a single item master record and associate the various units of measure, barcodes, prices and other parameters. Ultimately, this reduces the number of item master records you have to manage and reduces your database size.
