Unit of Measure (UOM) is a set of descriptive packaging parameters that is filled out when creating new items in Infoplus. This allows users to specify what an item is, what it weighs, and how it is packaged within the warehouse. UOM values can be recorded during receiving, via item receipts. The UOM fields are included in bulk load and the values can be inputted via the Infoplus API. Work tickets and our mobile app both show UOMs.
Infoplus supports four levels of UOM: Each, Inner Pack, Case, and Pallet. All quantities are stored as eaches.
