Success in today’s ever-changing business world depends on having a clear, well-organized structure. Reaching your organizational objectives depends on knowing and effectively managing your business structure, whether you’re in charge of a small or large corporation. We will explore business structure nuances, emphasizing roles, locations, and types so you can create a strong hierarchical structure for your company.

Understanding Business Structures:

A business structure is made up of a number of components that help to form the organizational hierarchy. Types, locations, and jobs are the three key elements.


The logical organizational levels within your company are represented by types. Departments, areas, stores, divisions, and regions are some examples. Determining these kinds is essential when setting up your company structure in order to create a comprehensive and transparent hierarchy.


Within your organization, jobs are specific roles with predetermined responsibilities. Efficient workflow and employee management are contingent upon the precise definition of job roles, whether registered nurses, associates, or welders.


Your organization’s locations can refer to physical areas and logistical divisions. This can include support, administration, home care units, and operating rooms and mailrooms. Assigning tasks to designated locations facilitates efficient personnel management and guarantees a smooth workflow.

Building Your Business Structure:

To build an effective business structure, follow these steps:

Add Cost Centers: To improve the configurability of your business structure, you can optionally add cost centers. When configuring locations, cost centers can be added to the drop-down list to provide more financial details.

Configure Types: Add the appropriate types to each organizational level in your business structure. This is a crucial step in building a thorough organizational hierarchy.

Add Jobs: Identify and add new roles or jobs within your organization. Later on, these roles will be distributed to various locations, resulting in an organized and effective workflow.

Add Locations: Include physical locations or logistical units to complete your business structure. Assign tasks to these locations in order to maintain efficient operations. The business structure is finished when jobs are linked to locations, enabling the assignment of jobs to specific employees.

Managing Your Business Structure:

Access the business structure configuration space through the following steps:

Open the Configuration Space:

  • Click on Main Menu > Administration > Application Setup > Business Structure Setup > Jobs and Business Structure.

    • Update: Edit existing types, locations, or jobs.
    • Delete: Remove types, locations, or jobs as needed.
    • Set the As of Date: View the location type tree as it existed on a selected day.

When managing locations, additional options include finding locations, assigning jobs, copying, moving, and pasting locations.

Types, locations, and jobs can all be carefully configured to create a framework that improves productivity, makes employee management easier, and establishes the groundwork for success.
