Vistex is a third party tool for better handling of rebates, sales commisssions, Billbacks, chargebacksetc in SAP R3 environment.The implementation duration depends on the scope but for example Incentive IP module takes appx 2-3 months in configuration( one resource). Bill back & chargeback takes same time.Does Vistex implementation involve any Technical development efforts also along with configurationactivities OR it is only configuring vistex modules?In SAP implementation project, Vistex consultant works in coordination with SD consultant. Is thisunderstanding correct?our company is implimenting the billback module but i dont see good documents available for thesame even in config also.I am working as SD consultant here.do you haave any document which can be shared for specially Billback testing??I recently read about SAP Compensation Management on a blog (sdmodule.com). Apparently it doesthe same thing as Vistex but it's a standard module and doesn't require an additional license. I don'tsee much documentation for it other than the enhancement package release notes. Here weimplemented the Vistex billback module but it took over 18 months to get it working and the consultingresources were VERY expensive.
