What's new in Custom Development? Cut Pieces

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Cut Pieces is a package developed for a supplier of sheet goods. The package added functionality to the sales order line entry that allowed the user to calculate total square feet of an item by entering quatity, width and length of pieces to be cut. The total square footage was calculated for the sum of all the cut pieces required of the item.

The information is stored in a charactieristic for the line item and is forwarded to any Purchase Order (PO) or Work Order (WO) created for the Sales Order (SO).

Open source makes it easier to customize xTuple to your needs. Custom Feature Enhancements — developed for customers by xTuple's Custom Development team, including our global value-added reseller partner channel — range from changing the placement of a single button to adding complex new functionality, such as Cut Pieces, a custom-developed package.
