Product groups vs territories

We use product groups for each product and territory. For instance a
region will have multiple product groups, one for machine sales, one for
part sales one for rentals and one for labor. So with 12 regions, we
have 48 different product groups.



Hope this helps.

Subject: [Vantage] Product groups vs territories



Does anyone have a sales model that is grouped according to product
groups versus territories? Our management group wants us to explore
the possibility of restructuring our sales department by product group
versus territories but we (Vantage implementation team) can't seem to
find a clean way to make it happen. At Perspectives, the Epicor gurus
mentioned that it may be possible to do with 9.0 but we're obviously
not there yet.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be welcome and appreciated.

Thank you,
Diane Popovich

We don't use this feature, so this may be over-simplified, but why
not name territories with your product names and regions for the
person(s) responsible for each group of products.

answering my own question: because territories are unique to
customers! Duh!
