You use this section to view and add details of companies that supply your stock. This is essential for creating Purchase Orders. In addition to managing the contact and financial details for your Suppliers, you can rate them for quality and measure their average lead time. You can also set default Suppliers for each brand in your stock and view summary statistics for your costs and sales figures.
