Item classes let you group items (for example, alcoholic drinks) for reporting purposes, and link those groups to custom general-ledger accounts, configure Item Classes in Head Office or Cinema Manager maintenance.
If you want items to belong to a hierarchy of classes, rather than independent classes, you can configure this in.
For example: All popcorn items may be grouped under an Item Class called POPC.
A set of default general ledger accounts is used to track the values of different transactions of items, such as concession revenue, cost of goods sold and inventory adjustments. Item classes can be configured with custom GL accounts to override the default system accounts.
Note: Loyalty uses item classes to identify trends. For example, an item class Popcorn that contains all popcorn-related items (Small popcorn, Medium popcorn, Large popcorn etc.) allows you (with the appropriate rule) to identify those members who have recently spent money on any type of popcorn.
