You can use FirstBIT ERP system for accounting in different units of measure. By default the system calculates weight in kilograms, length in meters and time in hours but all these units of measure can be changed. To edit the units of measure, enable the ‘Item accounting in different units of measure’ option in the ‘Purchases’ section. To learn more about the section settings, see par. Settings for the 'Purchases' section. Then add the required units of measure in the UOM Classifier.
To access the UOM Classifier, go to the ‘Purchasing’ section (see figure below).
