You can’t get around having SAP material numbers. That’s how SAP determines what product is being specified in its database during a business transaction. It has to be in the quote. It has to be in the order. It has to be on the invoice. It has to go all the way through the system. It has to be there. But, with the new product number enhancement for the Corevist eCommerce solution, you don’t ever have to worry about knowing what it is.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of speaking to a class of grad students about running a ‘virtual,’ distributed company. They had a lot of questions about culture and communication.

We hire people who love what they do and work really hard at it. Oh, and we use Slack.
