Please let me know if i can be able to use this erp solution for vehicle hire business.
I noticed there is no place to input price values for sales.
You could set up vehcile rental hours item as a service item. But this does not track what vehicles you have where and when it is due back, the fuel etc etc... this would be an interesting project.

This can be done by using GL tags, setting each vehicle to a tag, and then tagging all revenue and expenditure for each vehicle to its own tag.

Thanks

Hi Paulomx,

How many vehicles do you want to manage? If it is not a big number, you can use following mechanism. You can create Stock Item (unit - Km, price and cost -> $ per Km), Stock Location and Work Center for name of every vehicle (eg: Vh001, Vh002). Then define BoM as follow;


If you have two vehicle, this is the BoM for "Generic Vehicle" Km;
Component code: Vh001
Location: Vh001
Work Centre Added: Vh001
Quantity: 1 <-- We have to use 1 km from Vh001
Effective After (d/m/Y): 01/01/2000
Effective To (d/m/Y): 31/12/2025
Auto Issue this Component to Work Orders: Yes

Component code: Petrol (Or Gasoline)
Location: Vh001
Work Centre Added: Vh001
Quantity: X1 <-- This is the Gasoline/Km for vehicle Vh001
Effective After (d/m/Y): 01/01/2000
Effective To (d/m/Y): 31/12/2025
Auto Issue this Component to Work Orders: Yes


Component code: Vh002
Location: Vh002
Work Centre Added: Vh002
Quantity: 1 <-- We have to use 1 km from Vh002
Effective After (d/m/Y): 01/01/2000
Effective To (d/m/Y): 31/12/2025
Auto Issue this Component to Work Orders: Yes

Component code: Petrol (Or Gasoline)
Location: Vh002
Work Centre Added: Vh002
Quantity: X2 <-- This is the Gasoline/Km for vehicle Vh002
Effective After (d/m/Y): 01/01/2000
Effective To (d/m/Y): 31/12/2025
Auto Issue this Component to Work Orders: Yes


Now if you want to use your first vehicle (Vh001), issue a Work Order for required amount of Km for "Generic Vehicle" and use Work Order location as Vh001.

Now you can track Fuel usage and Vehicle usage.

Best Regards
Samudaya
