closed standard opportunity to update a custom object field

I'm trying to figure out how to update a field on a custom object, "Vendor Products", when an opportunity is closed. There is a lookup field on the opportunity that attaches it to the Vendor Product and the opportunities show up on a related list on the Vendor Product object. Is there an effective way to do this?

Cameron, you can create a Process Builder flow against the Opportunity object. Conditions should be when the Stage of the Opportunity is Closed. The action will be Update a Record and you will select the Lookup relationship to the Vendor Product object in order to update the related record.

You can do that via Workflow. Do you know the ID of the Vendor Product object upfront?

Thank you Terence_Chiu. I don't use process builder as much as I probably should and I couldn't get it to work with Workflow.
