Install MoneyWorks Multilocation Plugin

Software: MoneyWorks Gold / DataCentre with Multilocation plugin


Multi-location is an add-on solution (a plugin) provided by Cognito. This plugin allows user to handle their inventory in more than one location.

The benefits of this plugin are:

  • Individual stock counts and valuations by location: Provides a simple mechanism for handling different warehouses or consignment stock;
  • Stock transfers handled easily; 
  • New stock codes created automatically.

Limitation (as what mentioned in the guide):

  • This plugin used up 2 characters of the product code. That is, your base product code cannot exceed 13 characters (max. number of characters for product code is 15)
  • Product code cannot use location delimiter;
  • This plug in probably not suitable for more than hundred product lines held in different location.

To use the multi-location plugin, you need to have MoneyWorks Gold or DataCentre installed. Next, download and unzip the file from Cognito .

The file consist of:

  • Multilocation Guide.pdf
  • Transfer Stock script for Mac
  • Transfer Stock script for Window (.exe)

I strongly suggest user read the guide before proceeding further, so to have a better understanding on what this plugin can do for you.
