So you've just activated the costing feature for your winery. Fantastic! Let's get started.
If you are a new client to InnoVint, you'll want to get through the on-boarding process first by setting up your lots, vessels, and volumes. If you're an existing client, make sure your inventory is up to date.
Next, choose a date (either today or a day in the recent past such as the first of this month) that you want to establish all of your current lot costs. You and/or your accounting team may have an idea of your existing lot cost breakdown. (If not, you can just start tracking your costs going forward).
Record your first "+ Add Cost Item" action
Click the "+ Add Cost Item" button from the Cost Explorer
Simplest method: Enter in your starting bulk cost per lot using the "bulk wine" category. Make a note(s) that this is the starting cost of each lot (either as of today or a recent date in the past) now that you're using InnoVint.
More complex method: If you know the cost category breakdown of each lot, great! You can add each cost category item (ie. additives, labor, fruit, etc) separately per lot for a more detailed starting point.
Once recorded, this starting cost is set, and as lots are blended together these costs will be distributed according to our cost distribution rules.
