The Periodic and Perpetual Inventory systems are two different methods used to track the the Valuation of Goods on hand. The periodic system relies upon an occasional physical count of the inventory to determine the ending inventory balance and the cost of goods sold. Whereas the Perpetual Inventory system keeps continual track of the inventory balances and the Cost of Goods Sold.
Dolibarr ERP supports the Periodic Inventory system of Stock Accounting. Ohoo Solutions developed an Add-on for Dolibarr which will do the necessary postings in the Accounting module to manage the Perpetual system of Stock Accounting.
