During its expansion, the company soon discovered that they had outgrown their existing business software and needed a system which would give them more accurate stock levels and an effective handling of production.
Planet Eclipse’s business involves the importation of high numbers of relatively low cost stock units from all over the world. As such, the cost of actually getting the units into the UK and to their warehouses is a significant element of their business costs. De Facto ERP has sophisticated features to handle Landed Costs. The flexible system can handle a limitless number of cost elements, typically covering transport / freight, insurance, duty and any other charges related to the goods, allowing for proper FOB and CIF values to be calculated. It also handles a wide variety of Unique Taxes, such as VAT, excise tax, duties, port charges and so on.
As different countries use different baseline Units of Measure to calculate some of these charges, De Facto ERP will automatically convert one unit of measure to another where necessary.
