Subject Re: Multiple internal organizations on top
Date Thu, 01 Jul 2010 17:13:03 GMT
lets start with how these companies related tax wise.
usually one is the corporation and one is the S corp.
or One corporation is the Top and the other corporation is a profit center.
if both companies are related tax wise  then you would setup different 
facility and do stock transfers.

If the companies are not related tax wise, then the company that 
supplies to company one is a supplier to Company 1.
you can not run both companies in the same application due to financial 
reporting without heavy modification to the code.

Company 2has the role of supplier and is selected for each product.
this is done through the menus for a product at UI level.

This creates a supplier Product link to the product.

A ProductID that can be in many catalogs.

As a note you could run both companies if not related using the 
multitenacy feature just introduced.
then each company would share the code but have seperate databases.
