PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO DEMONSTRATES INFLOW V2, for the latest version please download inFlow from http://www.inflowinventory.com/ to see how easy it is to work with different units of measurement.

This video gives you an overview of the 3 types of units of measure -- purchasing, standing and selling.

The purchasing unit of measure is the unit of measurement a vendor uses for the product they are selling. In the video example, we assume we are a bakery and that we buy flour in pounds.

However, we like to measure our own inventory in cups (instead of pounds). With inFlow, this is no problem as we can simply set up our own conversion. This is also known as the stand unit of measure. Turns out in this example, 1 pound of flour is equal to 50 cups.

Now to make things a little trickier, our customers like to buy bags of flour which consist of 4 cups. This is known as the selling unit of measure and again, is no problem for inFlow Inventory.

You simply tell inFlow the measurements and units and it will take care of the rest!

Take a look at the editions page to see which version of inFlow might be right for you: http://www.inflowinventory.com/softwa...
