Inventory products can be used in the same way as supplier products. If inventory products are included in an itinerary and a booking takes place, then you need to make sure that the product is actually booked from your supplier. 

The Inventory comes with a "supplier info" feature that lets you maintain a list of suppliers and assign them to inventory products. To learn more about this feature, read more here.
