Create a Vendor



Vendors are organizations that need access to an access control system to provide good or services to the Occupants of the system. This article will detail the steps needed to Create a Vendor in BluSKY.


In order to create a Vendor, you will need to provide details on the Vendor. This information will include the basics like name, address and contact information. There may also be COI specific fields that indicate the status of the Vendor's COI and their ability to perform work in the building. Do not worry if these fields are not displayed, they are only exposed when your System requires COI for Vendors. VendorCreate.png
