FramR FREE has automatic updates of supplier catalogues.
When an update is available they will become visible in the bar on the left side of your screen. Click the update Catalogs button to receive the latest update.
New items can only be added to your own supplier. You will need to first create a new supplier before adding your own items.
To do this click on Supplier and then Click Add New.
The form will populate and you can select as many of the stock types required for this supplier.
Once a custom supplier has been created, a catalogue item can be created by clicking on the required component type and then clicking Add New.
Create a new item and fill out the information required. Notice that only the custom suppliers can be selected.
The cost entered for materials depends on how the material is purchased.
Materials purchased by sheet should have the cost entered as the whole sheet price. By using the sheet width and length a sqm price is calculated.
Pre-cut sheet materials should have the cost entred as a sqm price. The sheet width and length still needs to be entered so users can be warned if the frame exceeds the sheet size.
Moulding should have its cost price entred based on whether it is linear, chopped or assembled price.
If you are not registered for sales tax you will see a warning, stating you are not tax registered. In this case, prices entered should include sales tax.
It is also possible to set a minimum charge to materials, any material size below the minumum charge will be charged at the set minimum. Wastage is not applied if the total
size falls below the set minimum. If the material size plus wastage exceeds the set minimum, it will be charged at the calculated size.
If you have multiples of the same job, those jobs are charged as a collective size. If the minimum charge was set at say 0.5sqm and there were a multiple of two jobs at 0.3sqm each, they would total to 0.6sqm. This means that each job would be charged 0.3sqm plus the wastage percentagestock (0.3sqm + 40% wastage = 0.42sqm). Not 0.5sqm for each job.
Stock can also be managed for Moulding and Items. When a Order is saved stock will be taken from stock level.
If the stocked item is added to framing a job, stock amount will be deducted from available and add to the reserved amount. When a job is marked as completed, the reserved stock will be adjusted.
As new stock comes in the Stock Level can be adjusted on this form. For example; if the current stock level is 4 metres and 6 comes in, adjust the new level to 10 metres.
Catalogue items that you create yourself can also be deleted if required.
It's not possible to delete automatic supplier catalogue items individually but you can deselect the full range of product type for a supplier.
Discounts can also be applied to each supplier catalogue. A negative discount can also be applied if you wish to increase the price.
There are also a number of search functions to locate catalogue items if required. Search functions filter the list to make it easier to find the item you are after.
The stock page is also where you can add to, or edit your own custom Extra charges. Extras is a powerful, flexible tool for charging out the most basic or complex tasks.
