Multiple Units of Measurement (UoM) for a single product refer to the ability to measure and sell a product using different units of measurement. It means that a single product can be quantified, priced, and sold in multiple UoMs depending on the customer's preference or industry standards.
For example, a product like BEER can be sold in various UoMs such as Glass, Bottle, or Case. SalesPlay allows you to choose the appropriate unit for selling the product, and it handles the conversions and calculations between different UoMs seamlessly.
Here is the process.
First, go to Back Office PRODUCTS section and create a different type of measurement with values.
During product creation, the POS system would provide options to select the UoM for the BEER product. (Check near the “Sold by each” dropdown)
During the composite product creation, it needs to Tick ON the “composite product” option and need to select a previously created product, and add the “Quantity” of the previously created product.
During this step, it needs to Tick ON the “composite product” option and need to select a previously created composite product, and add the “Quantity” of the previously created composite product.
During inventory/stock adding / GRN, you should select the created MEASUREMENT type and its MoU correctly when adding.
Beer stocks arriving at the warehouse with cases must be added using the same measurement type/ option for stock addition.
Let's consider an example of a POS system that handles multiple Units of Measurement (UoM) for a “Beer” product:
( Ex: If you are selling Beer Glasses, add measurement as GLS. then add the name as BTL and the value as 5. Then add CAS as the name and value as 60. )
( Ex: If you are selling Beer Glasses, add the product name as Beer Glass, select measurement as GLS)
( Ex: Add the composite product name as Beer Bottle, select the product from the dropdown as “Beer Glass” and add QTY as 5)
( Ex: Add the composite product name as Beer Case, select the product from the dropdown as “Beer Bottle” and add QTY as 12)
( Ex: If you are getting beer stocks as CASES, please select BEER Glasses as the product and then select CAS as the measurement and the add the receiving stock)
