German term or phrase: VIS (Vertriebsinformationssystem)

Distribution information system?
Does the acronym DIS exist in English? Is it common?

Thanks in advance,

Explanation:
On the first of 600+ hits the Northern Light search engine turned up for "Vertriebsinformationssystem" the translation "sales information system" is provided (see URL below). Following that lead, I decided to see how many hits I could come up with for "sales information system." The result: over 8,000. As to whether an abbreviation like SIS is common, it is at least used in the URL for the FAQ page referred to below. SAP uses it, as well. For that, see: http://www.sap-professional.org/forum/sales/index.html.
