In this article, you will learn how to create new vendors for your purchase orders in Workiz. 

Purchase Orders is a tool available in the Feature Center/Marketplace designed to help you manage your purchase order lifecycles. From creating a purchase order with items that are relevant to specific jobs, sending the purchase order to a vendor, and tracking the delivery status, Workiz makes it easy to monitor and manage your purchase orders. 

New vendors can be added to your Workiz account in minutes, allowing you to store information like the vendor name, contact person, and payment terms.
