Adding vendors in Limble is important to reference and compare rates for both labor and parts. Cataloging vendors within your Limble system allows you to share tasks and order parts from vendors in your network. You can even default specific tasks and purchase requests/purchase orders to route to preferred vendors.

How to Add Vendors from the Vendors Page
The most common way to add a vendor is from the Vendors page. On any page in Limble, go to the navigation pane on the left-hand side. Look for the Locations header. If additional options are hidden, expand by clicking the > arrow. Scroll down and click Vendors.
From there, you will see the existing vendors associated within the selected location. To add a new vendor, click the “Add a Vendor” button.
You will be prompted to add one of two options: “A Blank Vendor” or “A Copy of an Existing Vendor.” If you would like to add a new vendor, choose “A Blank Vendor” and enter the name of the vendor in the text box provided. If you would like to add a vendor that already exists at another location, choose “A Copy of an Existing Vendor.”
Make sure to add the vendor’s name and contact information. This is important so everyone on your team can easily get in touch with your vendors, and ensure tasks and purchase orders can be shared appropriately. When you’ve added all of the information, click “Done.”
How to Add Vendors from the Mobile App
Adding new vendors is just as simple to accomplish from the mobile app! From your mobile dashboard, scroll down and click on Look up a Vendor. From there, you will see your vendor list. Find and select the “+” button in the bottom left-hand corner.
You will be prompted to add the vendor’s name and contact information. Once you have included all necessary information, click the “Create” button.
