Multi Company Plugin

From Wiki-eostar.com
Jump to: navigation, search

The Multi Company plugin is designed to allow multiple companies to share a single database. It enables businesses to use a single eoStar database to house multiple lines of business. Companies can separate finances while using shared assets.

This plugin, in conjunction with the Beverage Tax Plugin, can be used to separate out taxes to the correct state and company locations.

It added:

There are three major configurations of this plugin:

Multi Company by Warehouse

This is for companies that separate each warehouse into a separate legal entity under the umbrella of the same corporation, while selling the same products.

Multi Company by Item (Product)

This is for companies that produce different products (beer, spirits, wine, soda) within the same warehouse(s). They use the same trucks, employees, etc, but each product is owned and operated by a different company (under umbrella of same corporation).

Multi Company by Warehouse and Item (Product)

This is for companies that separate each warehouse into a separate legal entity under the umbrella of the same corporation, while selling different products.
