What is it and what is it for?
With Altegio, you have the ability to automate the process of writing off consumables when providing services. This functionality can be achieved by using bills of materials assigned to each service. A bill of materials is essentially a list of the consumables required to provide a specific service. For instance, when providing hair coloring services, you may need to use a certain amount of shampoo, hair dye, oxidizing agents, and other consumables. By setting up a bill of materials for this service, all of the required consumables will be automatically written off from your storage, and an inventory operation for the consumables used will be created. This automation helps to streamline your operations, saving you time and reducing the risk of errors.
