An item cross reference lets you associate one of your company’s inventory items with a specific customer or vendor, or with another inventory item.

When you associate an inventory item with a customer or vendor (known as an external cross-reference), your customer or vendor can provide their own identifiers for inventory items that can be used in transactions.

When you associate an inventory item with another inventory item (known as an internal cross-reference), you can provide alternate items to substitute, upgrade, downgrade, or complement items in Order Entry transactions in the Sage Intacct UI.
