Product bundles and kitsets

Save time and let Unleashed automatically assemble product bundles or kitsets. As the order is entered into the system, reserve all items that make up the bundle, and ensure that you have what you need to build the finished products.

Unleashed’s Auto Assembly feature lets you assemble products with a set range of components. For example, a gift basket that always has wine, chocolates and candles.

Bill of Materials (BOM)

Essential breakdown of components required to assemble or create a finished product.

  • Manage your recipes easily

    Create and maintain your recipes in one central location. Have the flexibility to adjust your BOMs as components are no longer available, or substitute components are used for more cost effective production.

  • Avoid production delays

    Remove the guesswork out of production by having an accurate list and quantity of components required to assemble a product, including packaging materials. When components are not available, production can come to a halt as you locate missing parts, causing delays.

  • Avoid additional costs

    Unleashed calculates how much/many components are required for production. Having accuracy on inventory means you can make sure you have the right components and quantities for assemblies. When components are not available, you may have to quickly source or find a substitute from elsewhere at a higher cost.

  • Improve company’s bottom line

    Having the wrong components or wrong quantities may leave you with unusable components or extra stock, tying up money in inventory and potentially impacting your bottom line. For companies running lean, these mistakes can be costly and time wasting.

  • What are component products?

    Component products are raw materials or items used to create a finished product as instructed in a Bill of Materials.

  • Can I bulk create or import Bill of Materials (BOM)?

    Yes, you can either clone an existing BOM or use the import template to create multiple BOM’s at once.

  • Where does the unit cost amount come from when creating a Bill of Materials?

    The value in the Unit Cost field that appears when entering a BOM is the average cost of the component product as calculated by Unleashed and shown in the Details or Costs tab of each product.

  • Can I delete a Bill of Materials once it is created?

    You can delete a BOM however only before it is used on an assembly.
