A supplier can be any company that you might use to provide products or services that you either;

  • Use in your own operations, such as office rental and office supplies.
  • Resell to your own customers, such as printing or manufacturers.

Suppliers are an important part of Knack. By creating a supplier, you can;

  • Create a product or service with a markup that you resell to your own customers.
  • Keep track of your company expenses through supplier invoices.
  • Generate purchase orders when your supplier or your own company requires it.

When you register with Knack, your own company is automatically added as a supplier. This allows you to create services, quotes and invoices using services or products that you are generating or manufacturing.
