NetSuite Customization for Landed Cost Feature
One of our clients from Germany who deals with garden furniture had a requirement to include the Volume as a Cost Allocation Method for the Landed Cost feature to the NetSuite account. We provided a solution which is perfectly suitable for their processes.
The client required us to include the Landed Cost with the Cost Allocation Method: ‘Volume’ that will eventually split the costs to the items based on the volume occupied in the shipping carrier.
The risks associated with these implementations include performance issues if more item lines and cost categories are there in item receipt/bill and the ‘Landed Cost per Line’ field can only be changed on new transactions.
Our experts analyzed the requirements and the challenges in detail and provided the solution by creating a checkbox ‘Cost Allocation based on Volume’ at the body level. If this checkbox is checked, the user can enter the Landed Cost details in the custom sublist created, ‘Landed Cost- Volume’ (Basically a custom record) in the Item Receipt and Bill. Also, using the script we will be checking the checkbox “Landed cost per Line” when the user ticks the check box ‘Cost Allocation based on Volume’. If this check box is checked then only, we could calculate the landed cost.
Our specialists attained the requirements successfully. They added Volume as a Cost Allocation Method for the Landed Cost Feature that will eventually split the costs to the items based on the volume occupied in the shipping carrier.
