However, for many, it is more likely that their products come from numerous suppliers and they want to keep a track of this within their product database.

One very important section of the Bluepark CMS that people often miss is the Unfinished Orders area. This section is exactly what it says, in here you will see orders that are currently in progress, i.e. not yet completed. In the Bluepark system a completed order means that the customer has reached the very last checkout page which thanks the customer for their order. Find out why it's important to keep a close eye on this area and not just ignored.
