[Evergreen-acq] Multiple providers with one EDI account

Good morning,

I hope everyone is staying healthy and sane these days! I have a question.

I have a new library system that has two branches and do decentralized
ordering. So they order completely on their own with no input or oversight
from the other. Their admin set up two providers--one for each branch--but
they're both going to go through the same EDI account because they're
really the same account with the vendor.

Is that a problem, or is that okay? I've always adhered to "1 provider, 1
EDI account" just because that's the setup that made the most sense for my
other libraries, but I don't know if that's actually necessary or not.

Is there any reason that they *shouldn't* do this? I can't think of
anything off the top of my head, other than if they want to get a complete
picture of that vendor account in reports they'll have to select both

Thanks y'all!
