Xero stock control and bill of materials

Xero stock control and bill of materials

Hello,

A client wishes to switch from a very old version of Sage desktop to Xero.

My understanding is that Xero inventory is very basic and only deals with finished goods. This is fine for most of what my client does although he has a couple of lines which are assembled from parts. On Sage he has used the bill of materials function for this.

It's a small operation with just 2 people so the stock control add ons avaiable for Xero seem way over the top and are pretty expensive.

Can anyone recommend a workaround for Xero?

I work with a self employed home baker, my approach to her will simply be a straightforward excel system

Initial stock, usage in month for finished/WIP/wastage and closing stock.

The WIP you could setup as a balance sheet code.

Does it require more detail than this? How many different stock items are there?

Would a reasonable epos system be a good solution as these come with stock management and will help track sales, card terminal fees can be as low as 0.35% Dr cards now, so this may be an area for savings, depending on sales level
