Cross Hire is used for hiring out inventory owned by other suppliers or hire businesses. The cross hire 'owner' must be set up as a 'Supplier' in the HirePOS system. To set up suppliers, go to Setup > Suppliers from the main menu strip at the top.
How to set up cross hire items
Cross Hire items are set up in the system just like any other item. However in the item details page, you need to click on the 'Cross Hire' tab, and then select the cross hire owners. Enter the percentage the owner is to retain from hire income, and optionally you can enter some comments. Click Save Changes when completed.
It is recommended to set up cross hire items as a separate item type, i.e. Cross Hire. This will separate all the cross hire items in reports and group them under Cross Hire.
