Hi @Jen-Atmos,

 

 

Thanks for posting!

 

I would just like to confirm, what MYOB product are you using; is it AccountRight, AccountEdge (MAC), or Essentials?

 

Can you provide a little bit more details about the set-up of your business? Like are the stocks in the trucks, for part replacements when performing services at jobs?

 

Let us know how you get on!

 


Kind regards,
Leighton

Re: inventory for service industry

Hi, 

They carry stock in the truck which is then used for repairing jobs. We then need to bill this out. We currently use service dockets and add the parts ourselves without stocktake. If we can input it in it would work well. Also to have stocktake figures for end of year. (obviously not this year).

We also sell air conditioners so would like to inventory them in and allocate to a job so we knwo available stock levels, what is committed, what is available and what is ordered.

also hoping that as our current stock in MYOB is so far out that we will be able to either adjust this, ignore or overwrite it somehow.

Re: inventory for service industry

Hi @Jen-Atmos

 

If you are looking for an add-on solution I would recommend taking a look at the MYOB Add-on solution page which does have a full list of potential addons that can be used. Personally, I haven't investigated each one so I am unable to provide a recommendation on which add-on solution would be best for your situation. However, I would encourage others in the MYOB Community that do use add-on solutions to share their experiences and potential add-ons that they use.

 

In terms of adjusting inventory values, I would encourage you to take a look at Help Article: Making inventory adjustments which would be able to assist with that process in detail.


Kind Regards,
Steven
