Returnable items

LFS can keep an account of returnable items, in particular for exchanging pallets. This makes it easy to answer questions such as how many pallets you are owed by a supplier.

This course teaches you everything you need to successfully handle returnable items in LFS. The focus is on setting up and maintaining all the master data that is required to use all the available functions. How do I keep an account for returnable items? How do I manually or automatically post incoming and outgoing items? Clear practical examples and exercises build on your newly acquired knowledge.

The half-day course can be booked as an add-on to another attendance course, such as "LFS for Advanced Users". Remote training as a webinar is also possible.
