Talking about the product type, Inventory Management System has provided facility to add kit, assembly, service, and stock items. In a kit, you combine two or more items in a bundle and sell them together. In such a case, cashier will not be to sell the bundled items individually. The cost of the bundle item created is not necessarily equal to the sum of cost of all the items added to the bundle. When there are no sales shown for a bundled item and you wish to sell them individually, it needs to spit them using kit split feature present in the back-office.

There is alternative way which is using the Assembly where you don’t need to split it for sending individual items. When cashier add an assembly items, all its component items are added on the POS. That way, it will allow a customer to add more items to the selected package.

Every item added to the inventory is called stock item. Therefore, an item can be assembly item as well as a stock item in Ari Inventory Management System. The Service items do not have a quantity. They are added when a person asks for a service of any kind which your store provides. For instance, a person purchased an AC from your store. This is added as a stock item. He further asks for installation, then it can be counted as Service Item.
