WMS can support Multi-Currency independent of the accounting system. 

Available Replication modes to Accounting software:

  1. Default Mode (suggested mode) - Replicating AUD with Currency Code and Rate in Journal Memo. In this mode, FX transactions are raised from WMS. The spot rate for sale or purchase is locked in BEFORE replicating the transaction as BILL or INVOICE back to the Accounting system.

  2. Scale mode - sets Discount % to scale extended amount to AUD while UNIT COST is the FX unit cost. This mode allows the operator to see the FX unit amount in Sale or Purchase while the total value of the transaction will be AUD.

  3. Direct mode - writes FX amounts directly to the Accounting system without conversion to AUD. This mode is designed for users with SMALL NUMBERS of FX transactions - this allows the Accountant to CHANGE the currency code after replicating the transaction - then copy the FX rate from the Journal Memo to Transaction exchange rate.
