1. New Features: Unit of Measurement (UOM)
Financio now supports multiple product units of measurement (UOM). You can now configure and set various units of measurement of each product the way you want them to be.
Once configured, the system will automatically display the relevant pricing when you purchase, stock or sell. No more tedious manual calculation and avoid discrepancies in your inventory record.
With this new feature added, we have created the Product UOM Report as a new addition to the existing list of reports. This report shows selling and buying details of your products by UOM. Tie your units of measurement to prices and cost. Keep track of all your units with confidence today!

3. New Features: Build Items
The Build items is a feature that enables you to combine two or more items, known as components, to make up another item, known as a finished item. In this item assembling process, the system will transfer the inventory quantities of the components to that of the finished item. For example, a bike manufacturer will have many components to build a bike, such as seats, tyres, brakes and pedals. This feature enables businesses to easily keep track of inventory of finished goods and the components too.
This feature supports the assembling and dissembling of finish items. For items that you repeatedly build, you can use the Auto‑Build list to manage the finished items. Read the guide to learn how you can use this feature. With this, we have added two new reports for your convenience.
- Auto Build Report
- Planning & Forecast Report
4. New Features: Multi Location
When you're managing stock across multiple locations, there are multiple chances for things to go wrong. With Financio smart, multi-location functionality, you can stay on top of your stock levels at all times.
Make your inventory go further, ensure you have optimal levels of the right stock in the right location at the right time. This feature offers a new level of transparency and helps you make more informed inventory management and purchasing decisions. Find out more about how you can use the Multi Location feature.

1. New Enhancement: Additional costing method – Average cost
Financio now supports two costing methods of stock inventory management.
- First In First Out (FIFO)
The concept of the FIFO method assumes products are sold in the order they're added to the inventory. Meaning, first products in stock are the first to be sold. The costs paid for those oldest products are the ones used in the calculation. This method best suits businesses such as restaurants, bakeries and butchers because the products have a shelf life.
- Average Cost
The average cost concept uses a weighted average to track inventory. With this method, you use a pool of cost for all units of a particular stock keeping unit. Any purchase is added to the pool of cost, and the pool of cost is divided by all units you have on hand.
Choosing the right inventory costing method helps you calculate the most accurate inventory cost to deduct from your taxable income, and empower you to make more informed business decisions. Learn more here
2. New Enhancement: UI/UX Enhancement
Financio had a significant facelift which gives you a better user experience. The workflow has been redesigned alongside the all-new UI/UX enhancement to allow greater flexibility with fewer clicks. As a result, you can get work done faster too.
