Product Catalog

The Product Catalog is an integral part of the Purchasing module. This Catalog allows you to set up and maintain information for purchasing process by describing multiple products and identifying suppliers as a number of available vendors for these products. Each product can be either a physical inventory item (such as a computer or a fax toner), or a company service (such as equipment maintenance or warranty service). Products from the Product Catalog can be used to create Purchase Orders and manage Consumables.

When you create the Product Catalog, you complete the following tasks:

  • Determine which products you want users to be able to order.

  • Determine what level of detail you want to provide for the products. You can add attributes and set up product relationships to provide a more guided order experience to the users.

  • Determine the list of preferable vendors for these products.
