What are Recipes?
Recipes allow you to sell the product that contains the previously added product group from the “Products” page and deal with it as a single final product with the other products it contains. Consequently, these products are automatically reduced from stock as soon as the final recipe is sold.
Advantages of Recipes:
1- They serve activities that sell their products in different quantities.
2- They save you the hassle of listing each product individually at the time of invoicing a particular recipe containing a group of products.
3- They help reduce the products included in the main product easily and automatically.
4- They are reflected in the ease and clarity of accounts and reports.
Activities that benefit from the feature of “Recipes”:
How can these activities benefit?
All restaurants offer different dishes which are recipes containing several other products. Suppose a restaurant specialized in serving pizza, where pizza consists of dough, olives, cheese and other products, and each has its own cost. Recipes help in adding each product separately at the beginning, then determining the final recipe called “vegetable pizza”. Choosing that these products be part of the basic product in every process of adding a new invoice would facilitate the calculation of the cost of each product separately and the automatic reduction of inventory.
To prepare a cup of coffee in a café, several products must be added, such as cups, coffee, water, milk, sugar and other additives. The recipe “cappuccino” is identified and all these products are included in the cappuccino, so you will be able to calculate the cost of a cup of coffee in one invoice by automatically reducing inventory in predetermined quantities per unit of product.
The owner of the carpentry needs to make a dining table from a set of raw materials, the most important of which is wood; The final recipe becomes the “dining table” and the products are wood, glue, paint, and nails.
The dining table is a final recipe and its chairs are also final recipes, which means that the recipe can be part of another recipe.
Car workshops provide services in addition to products, which makes these services as final recipe. In the case of changing a car tire, the final recipe is “providing a service for changing car tires.” That is by determining the cost of the service provided and the product provided in one step and in a single invoice.
Plumbing and electrical works:
Plumbing and electrical services providers have a finished recipe from the spare parts it provides in addition to the service provided; Therefore, recipes help determine the price of this product in addition to the service provided with it.
How do recipes work?
1- Add raw materials and products before adding the final recipe, because it contains a set of raw materials and products that must be added in advance.
2- Purchase raw materials and products included in the final assembled product. To add quantities of raw materials and products involved in the production of the final recipe, an invoice must be created in the required quantity.
The final recipe is not sold:
Products included in the final recipe are to be bought only until they are in stock. Thus, the final recipe can be sold.
– The final recipe can be part of another recipe. For Example, Pizza is a final recipe that contains dough, sauce, cheese, and vegetables. It can be part of a meal that contains drink and potatoes as a final recipe as well.
