e. Inventory Module

The inventory module is a fast easy way to interact with the accounting software to create and manage products and services.  Advanced inventory management is managed directly in the cost accounting software. 

Costbucket inventory is categorized as raw materials, finished goods, or service charge / labor. They are further categorized as purchased or assembled (inventory movement tracked) or untracked (no inventory movement).  The balance sheet in Costbucket will then show the inventory in the right categories. 

All products are assigned to a category.  Setting up products in Costbucket begins with the categories then add the products. 

To add products, go to Inventory on the main product menu
