Auto calculation of conveyance amount based on starting and end kilometer reading
We pay our delivery people a fixed rate per kilometer for the whole day. In the morning they enter starting reading from their odometer along with a picture of the reading. In the evening after completing their deliveries for the day they again enter the reading along with picture as evidence. System should automatically calculate the amount payable for the day in ERP.
To enable this feature you will need to create a claim type of class "Differential Readings" and configure it. Please go to erp >> accounting >> claims >> manage and click on add "new button." In the dialog that appears, select "Differential Readings" in the class field. Enter a name that can be easily understood by your staff and save. In the new screen that opens, click on the edit button in branch applicability. Once you select any branch you will see three new fields. Third field is the rate. For this case it will be rate per kilometer. Enter values and save. Now staff of the selected branches will see this new claim type in their online accounts as well as in mobile apps. In mobile apps they will need to enter reading at the start and take a picture with their mobile camera for upload. These type of claims will not permit user to upload from their gallery or any other storage. At the end they will again enter reading along with a picture taken with their camera and save. Claim will be auto presented, amount will be auto-calculated and pictures locked.
It is all fairly simple and straight forward.
