Vendor Manager

A vendor is an entity from which items are procured by the company. Vendors are responsible for handling the fulfillment of selected inventory items outside of the company’s warehouse sites.

To access the vendor manager, select Vendor Manager from the Inventory accordion menu. The Vendor Manager page appears. From here you can perform the following vendor operations.

Order Management's vendor record schema allows for flexibility in terms of what fields are used and how each is used. The use and the need for fields depends on the company's use of Order Management. Vendor records don't require any information. Consideration should be given to the developer because Order Management's .NET controls provide default behaviors that depend on the use of specified fields.

The following table describes the components of the Vendor Manager dashboard:
