A Customer is any company to which you sell goods and services.

Other Sage Intacct applications use customer information—not only for record-keeping purposes, but also for printing names and addresses on forms, such as invoices, and for determining the location of the Ship To contact so that sales can be computed correctly.

You can associate existing custom email templates with customers to tailor communications about transactions.
