A Supplier is selected from your existing Contacts database. They are defined in Inventory to allow you to assign a supplier or multiple suppliers for an inventory item.
Use the +NEW SUPPLY SOURCE (as shown above) to create a new supplier of items. This will bring up the following form.
A supplier can be given a different name to that of their participant record to allow for the case where billing address may be common to the supplier but local branches may be the outlet depot or supply point. This is called the Supply Source Name and in the following example, the Participant record for each supplier is the head office while the Source Name is the local branch we would deal with.
Additionally, suppliers can also be related to one or more divisions within your organisation to allow for regional variations or supply contracts. Simple select the appropriate divisions by selecting the box beside the name.
