Can I prevent other users from adding new vendors?

Please note that there is no way to restrict a user from adding a new vendor when making a Request.

However, if you are concerned about those vendors hitting your ERP (NetSuite or Quickbooks), please note that new vendors in ControlHub do NOT export automatically to your ERP. Only new vendors that are part of Approved Requests, and additionally, are linked to a PO or Card Transaction, are actually exported to your ERP.

Also, to avoid users generating duplicates for vendors that already exist in ControlHub, our system warns users when a new vendor seems similar to an already existing vendor.

You can add an Approval Rule so that all requests for New Vendors require approval from specific approvers, and those people can decline the request if the vendor is not authorized or unwelcome to your company.
