The Supplier Product Inventory Management Extension by CreativeMinds allows approved suppliers to add and manage products on a front-end dashboard of your site. This allows you the site owner to distribute the workload to the product vendors of uploading and updating the products that are on sale on your store without giving over access to the admin panel. Various levels of control or moderation can be implemented to all or some suppliers depending on your preference.


Managing Inventory Dashboard

This inventory management extension has the ability to benefit both admin and suppliers. Admin have the ability to manage suppliers and uploaded products, while store suppliers can upload products from a front-end dashboard without gaining access to the store admin panel.   Frontend dashboard grid showing all vendor products

Managing Product Attributes

Admin can assign attribute sets available for each supplier or vendor, while maintaining the admin's exclusive ability to approve or dismiss uploaded products, as well as being able to moderate supplier products which need further editing.   Vendor's Edit / Add product screen showing attributes available
