Aspire allows you to estimate materials in one unit of measure, and purchase them in another unit.
For example, I might estimate roundup for jobs in ounces, but order from the vendor in one or two gallon containers. In this case, “ounces” represents the allocation units and “one gallon” or “two gallons” represent possible options for purchase units.
This article shows where the different unit types are represented in Aspire: item catalog, purchase receipts and work tickets. Click on article attachment below to view full article.
