Multi-Site / Multi-Company Module Implementation


(Mitchell Rainsford) #1

Hi All,

The company I work for has created a separate company and we are looking into purchasing the Multi-Company module. They are looking for a labor-estimate/time-estimate on how long this will take, but I have no idea.

Can anyone give me a clue as to how long this may take? What will be involved in making this happen? And if anyone has any pointers they would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Could you help by identifying what features of multi-company you will be using?

Global Records (e.g. customer)
Inter-company POs
AP Automation and/or Central AP
Journals, Consolidation, etc.

Like Dan pointed out, it all depends on what else you need to configure. The simple process of creating the new company in the Admin Console takes 20 minutes max, but it could take 4-8 hours to copy/paste payment terms, COA, Buyers, etc. when it comes to all of the various supporting tables. Notice, that’s with copy/paste, which assumes you are using the same configuration data as the existing company. If you’re starting from scratch, the sky could be the limit on hours. Then you need the static and dynamic data like parts, on-hand inventory, open AP, etc.
Give us a high-level of what you’re trying to accomplish, and that might render more estimates for you.
