Kawasaki composite information
This article explains the configuration required and the steps to produce the Kawasaki composite information.
Please contact the Sales Department to purchase our standard Kawasaki Composite production kit. This creates the file required for composite input at the press of a few buttons.
The unit sales system requires very little configuration beyond normal operational processes. Make sure that your Kawasaki vehicles have a manufacturer of Kawasaki and that all vehicles are correctly flagged as New or Used. This should be sufficient to provide the unit statistics.
On the service side, it will be helpful if you are using the real-time labour logging system to get accurate times attended and taken. The hours charged will come from invoicing the customers correctly, and the split between Retail, Internal and Warranty will come from charging the correct customer, and making sure that the customer has the correct Account Group.
Parts, Accessories & Clothing
This is the operational area that needs the closest attention. All stock items will need an attribute attached to provide the split required, either Clothing or Parts. Should this not be done, the items will end up as Parts sales. A report and data import template is available to make it easier for allocating stock items to the correct category. It is also important that the items to be included have the preferred supplier set as Kawasaki.
To produce the composite information in the format required, please use the "Kawasaki Composite Menu" that will be installed on your system. You will find six reports here that will produce all the information required for the month prior to your current user date. Choose the options in sequence, and the system will generate the file 'KAWCOMP.CSV' automatically in the SX folder on your system. You can then upload this file from the Kawasaki composite input area.
