Setup > Businesses is where your business details can be added and edited. 

Businesses control their own stock centres and product pricing.

Each business can have multiple holdings or farms connected to it. You will also need to add holdings and farms as required – the structure is shown above.

Your business name will have been entered during the on-boarding process. You will need to add your business address and holding information.
