I need help with the following setup:
I am trying to setup a merchandising company with 7 warehouses and 55 stores in different countries. The company also maintains 2 eCommerce stores. Each warehouse is supplies inventory to the stores within its geographicalregion as well as fullfill online orders that fall within that region. The company has also many departments (Admin, Marketing, Finance, etc.).
The Company would like to keep a close eye on the revenues & expenses of each warehouse, store, and online stores as well as the various departments. They also would like to know how each group of merchandise is performing.
What account segmentation would you propose for such a setup?
Should the GL accounts be set by Warehouse or Item Group?
Should we use cost and profit centers or create segments?
