Inzant supports three levels of category, when you select a category, if there are sub categories they will be displayed.

Filtering

You can also apply filtering to your customer list using the Filter selector.

You can filter the retailers using the normal categorisation fields and any additional custom fields that are configurable depending on your individual business needs.
