SAP eCommerce with Corevist: A Cool and Secure Solution

At Corevist, we pay careful attention to a client’s pain points as we design and implement an SAP eCommerce solution. While every client is different, there’s one big, scary question that almost everyone asks.

“Is your solution secure?”

If you haven’t already guessed it, this is a very scary question for a prospect to ask a SaaS salesperson. But we’re used to it. We get inundated with questions like:

“How many ISP pipes are in your data center?”

“What type and version of firewall do you have?”

“What are you using for intrusion detection?”

“What is your disaster recovery plan? Oh, and I need the supporting documentation.”

8 Reasons Why Single Sign On is Great for SAP B2B eCommerce

Single Sign On (SSO) is a web technology that allows users to access a group of related but independent software systems. Rather than requiring a unique username and password at the login portal for each application, SSO grants access to all related systems from a single login portal, using a single username and password.

Goodbye Bank. Your New Software Sucks.

Banks are a commodity.  Their core business is to manage deposits, make loans and manage the spread between them.  They perform these activities under careful scrutiny and regulation by the Federal Government.  Banks primarily compete on price and service.  Price isn’t much of a differentiator because how much difference is there really between 0.95% and 1.1% interest on your money market fund?  It really is all about convenience.  Do they have a branch in your favorite supermarket.  Do they give toasters if you open a new account? How’s their online software? Read more

To the readers of Corevist’s blog,

I’m very excited to announce, that starting with this post, you’ll regularly be reading the writings of the newest member of the Corevist team, George Anderson.  He comes on board as a dedicated writer for us which is in response to the growing backlog of content that we’ve not been able to publish in our “spare time”.  My only hope is that he doesn’t put me out of a job. 🙂  I’ve really enjoyed, and it’s been therapeutic for me, to share my views over the past 9 years on what’s going on in the SAP B2B eCommerce industry and how Corevist contributes to making it a more attainable and safer place to go for Manufacturers around the world.

George’s maiden post is a continuation of my post from February 5, 2017 entitled “Look Ma! – No Hands SAP B2B eCommerce”.  At the end of that post, I promised I’d give you the details of a very clever innovation that our friends at Nordson put into production last year.

I lied.  George is.

12 Key Job Roles for B2B eCommerce Success

I originally published this blog post on April 8, 2014  when we were B2B2dot0.  Since the topic is as relevant today as it was then, I decided to republish it here today.


I just came across this article over at entitled “12 Key Job Roles for B-to-B eCommerce Success”.  What amazed me most was that we have several clients who have achieved unquestionable success with their B2B eCommerce initiatives with only one of those roles on staff.  What’s even more fascinating is that they aren’t even dedicated full time to working on their SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce website.

Which role do they have and how can that be?  Read on. Read more

There is more than One “B” in B2B eCommerce

In 1913, Gertrude Stein proclaimed that “a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose”.

In 2017, I’m proclaiming that “a business isn’t a business isn’t a business isn’t a business”, especially when it comes to B2B eCommerce.

The Replacement Part Problem in B2B eCommerce

In sales training classes, you’re always taught identify your clients’ pain points.  Identify the pain and offer a solution. Seems simple enough, right?  Well it is, unless you’re trying to figure out how to get information that is stashed away in SAP to magically appear on your B2B eCommerce website.

Over the past few months, I have spoken to manufacturers that make wildly different things – from medical devices and electronics to aftermarket truck and car parts. Each company is different and has its own unique problems and pain points. But, there’s one pain they all share.
