The same Customer List should be used by both BTI and InFlight

The customer list in Customer Center is used by BTI but InFlight uses a separate list. Maintaining two separate lists is time consuming and error prone.

How will this idea be used?

If we add new trading partners we will update a single list that associates the trading partner name with their ISA ID. This will ensure the customer name is defined the same in both BTI and InFlight.

I recently tried searching for PUBLIX in BTI and could not understand why it was not found in BTI. I knew PUBLIX was defined in InFlight. The BTI team discovered that PUBLIX was not defined in the list used by BTI and that was the cause of the issue. I now need to go though both lists and reconcile the differences.
