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 hybris 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 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.
