So What Is Corevist?

Corevist is a B2B digital commerce platform with flexible solutions for all B2B use cases. In 2008, manufacturers had few online ordering options, so we launched a web portal solution natively integrated to SAP. Around 2012, we added Magento as a partner, expanding our offering to include enhanced browsing, search, merchandising, and marketing capabilities.

Since then, we’ve become experts in Magento 1 & Magento 2 while also expanding our SAP integration offerings.

Magento SAP Integration

Here’s what it takes to get it right:

1. Build the order creation integration between Magento and SAP

The order creation integration between Magento and SAP is the linchpin of your entire solution. If your Magento store can’t post orders to SAP in real time, hands-free, it will fail your customers. Order errors will arise when SAP and Magento are out of sync, or when a customer orders a disallowed or discontinued SKU.

This is incredibly difficult to build from scratch. You have to duplicate all of your relevant business rules from SAP in Magento—and potentially in middleware, too, if you decide not to launch a direct, real-time integration like ours.


Alternative: Use our prebuilt integration

Corevist Commerce includes prebuilt integration between Magento and SAP for order creation. It posts orders to SAP in real time, and it’s guaranteed 100% error-free. Because it’s prebuilt, it’s up and running on Day 1, and it’s configurable to meet your unique needs.

2. Build the order tracking integration with SAP

Let’s say you have the order placement integration covered. Customers can place orders in Magento, and those orders will get to SAP.

But how do you return order history from SAP to Magento?

You’ll have to integrate your Magento store to SAP with order data returned by customer. What’s more, you’ll have to integrate with whatever major shipping carriers you use. This can be a sizable undertaking.

Alternative: Use our prebuilt integration

Corevist Commerce includes a prebuilt order tracking integration. It’s ready to go on Day 1, displaying your customer’s entire order history from SAP within the web channel. And it’s fully configurable to meet the unique needs of your business.

3. Build the A/R integration with SAP

Your Magento store won’t be much good for B2B without an A/R integration. If you want your customers to use the web portal to do business with you, then you need to provide ways for them to manage their accounts in the portal. That means an A/R integration with SAP that allows them to search open invoices, see open items, see payment history, and pay for open items.

So how do you display this A/R information from SAP in Magento? And how do you allow customers to pay down open items, with those invoices marked as paid in SAP, in real time?


Alternative: Use our prebuilt integration

Corevist Commerce includes a prebuilt A/R integration. On Day 1, it’s ready to display your customer’s open invoices from SAP within the customer portal. It’s prebuilt to accept payment on open items and mark those items as paid in SAP. And even though it’s prebuilt, it’s configurable to the needs of your business.

4. Build the integration for associated documents and objects

A lot of miscellaneous integration points fall under this heading. But just because they’re miscellaneous doesn’t mean they aren’t important. You need to make sure your integration covers things like:

  • Sample BTE user exit for A/R statements
  • Refresh dynamic product proposal data
  • Generate PDF of document output type
  • Generate pricing details for carts, orders, and invoices.
  • Calculate additional header totals for carts, orders, and invoices.
  • Read SAP short dumps.
  • And more.


Alternative: Use our prebuilt integration

Corevist Commerce includes prebuilt integration for all these miscellaneous integration points (and more). In standing up numerous Magento SAP integrations, we’ve learned which auxiliary integration points are essential for B2B, and we’ve built them into our out-of-the-box integration. Like all of our other integration points, these are configurable to your unique business needs.

5. Build the master data integration for customers and materials

This part is essential if you want your Magento-SAP integration to display personalized pricing and personalized catalogs. Since everything about your customers and your products lives in SAP—including the relationships between customers and products—you need to find a way to get your Magento store to abide by the same rules.

At a high level, here are your options:

  • Batch updates via middleware between Magento and SAP (must rebuild and maintain all relevant business rules in 2-3 places; batch updates can lead to SAP and Magento being out of sync).
  • Real-time middleware solution between Magento and SAP (must rebuild and maintain all relevant business rules in 2-3 places).
  • Real-time direct integration (like Corevist Commerce).

For more information, see this post: Direct E-commerce Integration vs. Middleware.

Solution: Our prebuilt, direct, real-time integration

Corevist Commerce includes prebuilt integration between Magento and SAP for all relevant master data. In Corevist, customers and materials are handled exactly as they are in SAP—because Corevist acts as a window into your SAP system. Rather than requiring you to rebuild all those business rules, Corevist brings your existing SAP business rules to the web so your customers get personalized pricing and personalized catalogs. This integration is prebuilt and ready to go on Day 1, and it’s fully configurable to your unique needs.

6. Build the integration for technical and foundational objects

There are a lot of supporting integration points required for a healthy Magento SAP integration. If you’re building your own integration, you need to account for technical and foundational objects like:

  • Program to find customers/materials/orders/invoices.
  • A way to generate mock data.
  • Magento material data extract
  • Test execution of PDF generation for Adobe.
  • Export translations for units of measure.
  • And more


Alternative: Use our prebuilt integration

The Corevist Commerce integration accounts for all of these technical and foundational objects, right out of the box. This is all ready to go on Day 1, with full configurability for your unique SAP system and business needs.

7. Build the Magento web shop front end

This is the first item on our list which you won’t have much trouble sourcing. Magento has a vast community of design/development shops which can stand up your Magento storefront.

The trouble is, your requirement to integrate to SAP adds complications. Most Magento devs won’t be able to help you with the other points we’ve listed in this article. That means you’ll have to coordinate multiple partners to get your Magento store 1) stood up, and 2) integrated to SAP.

Alternative: Engage Corevist as your Magento shop

Not only do we give you our prebuilt Magento-SAP integration, but we stand up your Magento instance, too. There’s no need to gather multiple partners and try to coordinate on a big, unwieldy project. In fact, we find it’s much simpler for our clients if they have “one throat to choke” for their web channel. That’s why we cover all the bases, including Magento development.

8. Build the product catalog with rich content

To help your customers find the right products and make informed purchases, you need to provide a catalog within your Magento store.

But how will you populate that catalog with content?

Admittedly, prepping catalog content is one of the biggest tasks awaiting any Magento-SAP project. We encourage our clients not to hold the project hostage to catalog content. It’s okay to launch with placeholder images, especially in B2B, where your customers may already know what they’re looking for.

Alternative: Launch an order entry portal first, add a catalog later

If your product content is ready to go, that’s fantastic—proceed with your Magento-SAP-integrated catalog. But if you’re struggling to get that data together, there’s no need to delay your web channel until you have everything ready. You can launch Corevist Self Serve Ordering now, then add a product catalog when you’re ready.

That’s exactly what our client Mannington Mills did—and when they added a catalog with rich content, their sales through Corevist Commerce grew 150%. Check out this webinar for more: How to Drive Sales with Better User Experiences.

9. Configure the front end for branding and UX

Here’s the beauty of Magento: It gives you total freedom to design the branding and user experience which you need. As you’re building your own Magento-SAP integration, this is one of the last bases you’ll need to cover. And like #7 above, you’ll need to find a Magento shop to handle this for you. Given the UX needs which your SAP integration dictates, that could get complicated, simply because there aren’t many Magento firms which have experience integrating Magento to SAP.


Alternative: Engage Corevist as your Magento shop

Our mission is to be your “one throat to choke” for SAP-Magento integrated ecommerce. That includes your unique, branded user experience. Rather than trying to coordinate multiple partners, you can engage us to handle every aspect of your project.

10. Configure the SAP integration to your unique SAP system

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in 11+ years doing SAP ecommerce, it’s this: When it comes to details of SAP configuration, no 2 SAP systems are alike!

This is the last step in building your Magento SAP integration, and it’s absolutely essential. Not only do you need to construct the integration from scratch, but you need to configure the fine points to meet the needs of your unique business processes.

Alternative: Let us configure our prebuilt integration to your unique needs

At Corevist, we believe it doesn’t make sense to reinvent the wheel and then configure it. It’s better to use a prebuilt integration, where 80% of the heavy lifting is done, and refine that solution to a client’s unique needs. That’s how we integrate Magento to SAP. With 125+ storefronts live, using our architecture, we like to think it’s working pretty well.
