CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
We need to set up openerp for a multi shop environment. Our need:
- One company (one accounting)
- Two or more Shops in different cities
- Shops should share products, partners, partner debts, etc.
- Users in each shop should be restricted to: a) Shop accounting journals (invoice journals, cash and banks journals, etc) b) Shop locations (user in shop "A" can not make moves of shop "B"
Ideas till now:
- Play around with multi company, the problem I've found here is that I can not share accounting, each company needs it own chart of account
- Make a new model called something like "shop", relate account.journal and stock.location to "shop". Then, make some security rules.
Any suggestions? Similar problems? Thanks, Juan
Looks to me like a single company will be the simplest and most robust solution. You will need two warehouses (one per shop) You will need two shops. Since you are a single company both shops will automatically share products and customers. Note that average cost is at a company level - not sure if this is an issue.
1. security - I would create different user groups for the shop object - shop 1 and shop 2 etc and put a record rule in that limits what records they can see. Will need to do the same for warehouse if they are using SO (don't think they can change warehouse for POS?).
2. need to think about the journals. you could use an analytic account on the shop to be able to differentiate the revenue when posted, but you probably want to have separate sales and cost of sales accounts? Depends if you are running anglo-saxon accounting or not. This area may require some development depending on what you want.
I think you are largely on the right track
Nice approach. However, ass far as I understand setting up two warehouses for one single company doesn't allow you to have two websites in ODOO SAAS as well.
I could setup the webshop in an alternate ecommerce solution (e.g. Woocommerce/Magento) instead but the connectors for those ecommerce packages are not available in ODOO SAAS, meaning you will have to upload the store data into the ODOO database manually.
Any further suggestions?
