Description

This article describes the recommended procedure for Consignment Stock, asset tracking and Loan stock.

The system uses bin locations to store the stock under the hirer's name, but as you still own the stock, it remains in your stock list until it is written off or sold.

This system does not provide hire cost calculations for invoicing however you can review how long the customer/staff/loaner has had the stock via the Stock history form and filtering to bin history for a date period.

Detail Steps
