My client in in the service based industry. I’m considering recommending ERPNext for their operations. They basically sell time (such as TV and Radio adverts). While everything else has been sufficiently covered, Inventory and Items is a bit difficult to map here.
Assuming the inventory (or Stocks) in this case is time, suggestions are most welcome on the best way to go about implementing its management.
The requirement is that:
- The client should not be able to sell overlapping time slots (validated at the Sales Order stage)
- There should be a calendar view to see all currently occupied or free time slots in a given period. The calendar is like ‘Stock Summary’ report.
- Is a client has bought say 10 slots and has currently used up only 4, there should be a report of this as well.
Any input is highly appreciated.
