Using Multi-location

The Multi-Location Features


With AccountingSuite’s multi-location features, create unlimited inventory locations that may be flat or hierarchical and track inventory as wide or as detailed as is needed – from Warehouse down to Bin.

AccountingSuite™ comes packaged with one location – the Default Warehouse – but this may be changed to another location that has been added or the default warehouse may be renamed. By default, multi-location is turned off.
