Distributor Depletions

on 5/16/13, 11:00 AM 2,188 views

I need to know the best way to handle the following.

Our Company sells products to distributors, we want to be able to track the distributors depletion of their inventory. What would be the best method? Multi company with sales orders, and a sales order from the distributor to a virtual partner? I want to be able to do some good reporting on this as well.

You must activate the multiple-location option in Settings > Warehouses.

Just create several locations, like this:

  • Resellers / Reseller 1
  • Resellers / Reseller 2

You can assign the location related to a particular reseller on the customer form, in the Sales & Purchasestab, in the field Customer Location.

The record depletions, you can either do:

  • An internal move from location Resellers / Reseller 1 to Resellers / Depletion
  • Or create a physical inventory on location Resellers / Reseller 1

PS: It's not related to multi-company, you should not create several companies.
