How does customer management help you run your business?  One way is being able to quickly find their contact information.  That all starts with adding the customer to the ERP system.  This Article will show you how to add a new Customer and the Contacts associated with that Customer.

    • City
    • State
    • Zip
    • Phone
  5. Click “Create”
  6. Congratulations you just added your First new Customer!

What are Customer Contacts?

Customer Contacts are the people you talk to when you need to communicate with the Company they are associated with.  To add a new Customer Contact Record:

  1. Login to your JBit Pro account
  2. Click the “Customer Contacts” link on the Customers tab
  3. You will see, again, 2 buttons, “Back” and “New”, click New
  4. Fill in the Information for the new Contact, required fields are:
    • CustomerId (Company)
    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Phone
    • Email

  6. Congratulations you just added your First new Customer Contact!
