The location and profit center feature allows a company to assign GL account segment values, so that posting supported transactions will redirect a GL account amount to another account based on the location or profit center set on the transaction.


Locations can be set on many different transaction types, such as Sales orders, Purchase Orders and Adjustments, among others. The default location is assigned as the user logs into Spire, and this location initially appear on each new supported transaction. If a User security setting in the General area is configured, you can change the default location on sign-on to a different one, or change the default after logging into Spire from the File top menu or with the F10 shortcut key, or change the location field value on transactions. Otherwise all supported transactions will be posted to the specific location value assigned in User Settings and cannot be changed.

Profit Center

A Profit center can be assigned on Sales orders, and changed if User security settings allow. If an invoice is posted with a profit center selected, then affected GL accounts will be posted to a different account based on the profit center segment. If a profit center is not selected, then GL accounts will be assigned from the inventory item configuration with no redirection.
