Rebate Functionality

Hi,

My client is deciding between using SAP's rebate functionality (rebate agreements) or writing their own programs. I am familiar with how rebates work in SAP. Can you guys please tell me:

(1) If your company/client has a rebate process, do they use standard SAP or a custom process?

(2) For those companies using standard SAP, what problems have you come across.

Thanks,

Ben

    hi,

    we do use a standard rebate process and generally dont have any technical problems with it, if not for some master data related issues and sometimes scales.

    Thanks

    I have not come across a client till now who uses customized rebate functionality. But then I have just worked at few clients who have later version of SAP (4.6 or above). SAP std rebate functionality is very systematic and to implement this functionality it is not going to take you more than 160 hrs (1 month) vs if you try to create a customized program it is going to take a lot longer than 1 month. And then you have to test a lot of scenarios.

    Second question on problems come across while implementing SAP std rebate functionality. My answer to this question is none. Std rebate functionality is pretty straight forward, so didn't have much of issues.

    I hope this helps.
