SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly hybris)
is a leading eCommerce platform.
Yet not every manufacturer needs the complexity
and cost of SAP hybris in a B2B eCommerce scenario.
Manufacturers have specialized needs in a B2B eCommerce solution, sometimes referred to as a “digital customer portal” for you dealers and distributors.
In these B2B scenarios, your customers need real-time pricing, availability, and the ability to order/request a quote through an SAP-integrated web portal. Other functionality, like the ability to manage accounts & credit, pay invoices, and get order history from all channels (EDI, phone, web, & more) is a necessity for the modern customer experience.
But for some manufacturers, building and maintaining this SAP-integrated functionality in SAP hybris/Commerce Cloud may be too complex or expensive in a B2B scenario.
Problem: hybris integration to SAP ERP is costly and complex in a B2B scenario
SAP hybris/Commerce Cloud wasn’t designed to start with your SAP ERP data (which is essential to create personalized transactions for your channel partners). If you need integration (as many manufacturers do), you’ll have to handle it yourself, either in-house, or with a third party. Both options are complex and expensive.
If your budget for commerce is <$300k/year, SAP hybris may be too costly in a B2B scenario—especially if you need SAP ERP integration.

We’ll show you how to choose the right B2B solution based on your organization’s size and complexity.
Imagine a B2B cloud commerce solution that includes SAP integration.
Every customer would get the right pricing, inventory availability, product permissions, account history, and more—straight from SAP ERP in real time. With direct, prebuilt integration included, you wouldn’t have to engage third-party vendors to build a custom integration (which is what you’ll have to do with SAP hybris for B2B).
How would that affect your organizational efficiency?
How about your customer experience—and your revenue growth?

“We looked at hybris, but it was just too big. Plus it wasn’t integrated to SAP out of the box. We would have to build all the integration points to SAP, even though it was an SAP application.”
–Brian Poole, Vice President – Global Information Systems, Bioventus
