We hear it at every project initiation workshop.
“You mean every customer will be able to see our ENTIRE material catalog??? We can’t let customer X know that we sell product Y to customer Z, that would create an awkward and difficult situation....”
Almost every SAP customer has some materials they don’t want certain customers to know about. Take branded products for example. (“Why do you make an ACME labeled version but you won’t make one for my company?”)
Or, maybe you keep in limited supply for just a handful of customers.
Whatever the case, your company probably has materials in SAP you would prefer to keep hidden from some of your customers.
