Learn how using Gimme VMS helps better manage your operation.
As a best practice, tags are assigned to your most popular products by vendor or brand. Tags can be assigned at different levels: product, product family, POS, customer, or route. A popular use case for tags is for Canteen Franchises to create a "Mars" or "Hershey" label at the product level for reporting back to Canteen or to improve grouping products in markets planograms, simplifying the inventory process for your drivers. Tags are a highly scalable method to identify products across your operation.
Similar to how VMS handles taxes, commissions are assigned to an individual POS. When looking at commission rules, the rules are applied to product families as opposed to the individual product.
Taxes are assigned to an individual POS with the option to assign the in bulk. Assigning them at the POS level prevents more difficult tax allocation at the customer level should your operation span through different states, cities, or counties. Tax rules are assigned to product families to ensure a lack of a need to enter and assign each individual product.
