Stock Control Retail and Wholesale Quantities

Stock Control Retail and Wholesale Quantities

We sell in both full cases and individual packs on our website Mashers UK.

Would anyone have any experience with how to manage stock online for such a setup (we are about to build a new magento site).

e.g. if we have in stock 5 full cases of product1 which contains 12 individual pieces of product1p, we then have available to sell either 5 full cases or 12 pieces x 5 = 60 pieces.

In terms of stock management how would we keep track of this mixture of quantities, if for example 2 packs were sold we effectively no longer have 5 full cases available, likewise, if 1 full case was sold we no longer have 60 individual packs available to sell.

Is there any extension or perhaps just a simple technique which could efficiently keep track of stock if items are sold in both wholesale and retail quantities from the same catalogue.

Many Thanks
