How to do Consignment in navision 4??

Hi guys! I want to know how in Nav4, it is possible to do consignment. Here is the scenario: Company ABC sell to his customers kits of items which are distributed in a specialised box. That assembled kit is sold at a predetermined price and is composed by different items ( A1, A2…). A consignment consists to an agreement between Company ABC and the customer where company ABC installs at the client site a wokplace of customised cabinets. That workplace consists of products identificationwith stickes and its own locolisations. The customer must buys only at company ABC. The consignment which corresponds to those cabinets is not invoiced to the customer but the material is deducted from the company ABC inventory and not from its assets because it still belong to company ABC. The goal here is to find a way to keep track of customers who have a consignment. Thanks

Hi, You can use two methods: 1. Ship not Invoiced to Customer 2. Create Location per each customer and do Inventory Transfers. Both of this methods has there own pos & cons. We develop some functionality and reports to make first method more user friendly.

Hi Valentin! Please can you explain in more details your 2 solutions??? Thanks.

  1. Ship not Invoiced: Create standard Sales Order and process Shipment Only. Sales Shipment is the Consignment Memorandum for the customer. You will need next modifications: a. Shipment Report will have to have Price and Amounts information b. You need to create Customer Consignment Statement Report - Shipped Not Invoiced amounts from Sales Shipments c. If customer Reports Sale you process Sales Invoice using “Combine Shipments” function d. If customer Returns Goods you process Invoice and Credit (We combine this function in one) 2. Transfer Order Create Location per each Customer and process Transfer Order Per each Shipment. Posted Transfer Receipt is the Consignment Memorandum for the customer. You will need next modifications: a. Transfer Receipt Report will have to have Price and Amounts information b. You need to create Customer Consignment Statement Report - Inventory Quantities with Amounts c. If customer Reports Sale you process Sales Invoice from Customer Location. If customer Returns Goods you process Transfer order to transfer Items Back to your Location

Thanks very much Valentin.
