A logical structure when your company has more than one operating site. A system administrator must set up this structure. Once this structure is in place, several standard system functions are augmented by multi-site forms and fields that are only available once this structure has been put in place.
For example, when multi-site is in place, you can maintain individual inventories and financial information, as well as separate customer and vendor information. If necessary, the information in all sites can be shared and reports can be run combining data from all sites or a select number of sites by using the Multi-Site Group ID designation.
