How to create a New Supplier Contact in Fortix

 The end goal is to create a ‘single contact view’ by having one record for each client containing all their relevant data. Having data that is up to date, accurate and relevant will ensure a productive and efficient workforce. If you already have a database of customers or suppliers or contacts, you can use the Importing Data into Fortix function.

This article explains how to add a new contact, prospect, customer, supplier or any type in Fortix.
