New and improved: the Suppliers tab

Suppliers are key contacts for any small business or freelancer. They might provide you with the raw materials you use to manufacture finished goods, they might supply the products you sell to the end consumer, or they might simply sell the day-to-day items you need to keep your business running (coffee, paper, printer ink, etc.).

Managing and maintaining your relationships with your suppliers is therefore an important part of running a business. To make this even easier, we’ve updated and improved the Suppliers tab in Debitoor invoicing software, and this blog post takes a closer look at the changes we’ve made.
