A supplier, also called a vendor, is a person or company that provides goods and/or services to other companies.  You purchase from suppliers and receive bills from them.
A supplier could produce and deliver raw materials, partially assembled components, custom parts, or any consumable supplies. Also, a supplier could provide labor, consulting or management services.

A customer, also called a client in service industries, is a person or company that purchases goods and/or services from you.  You invoice customers or record sales receipts if they purchase immediately.

In DataQlick there are two separate entities – Suppliers and Customers.

You access both through the Contacts icon from the main menu.
