SAP and Magento eCommerce
The SAPgento Solution – Integration-as-a-Service
Our SAP certified solution now offers SAP integration within the Magento 2.2 B2B module.
That makes Corevist the first, and only, solution provider to offer “headless integration” to Magento for B2B scenarios.
Bringing together the best of Magento and SAP.
Magento has demonstrated a strong commitment to the needs of the B2B eCommerce market. SAP has dominated the ERP industry with its powerful functionality. Why not bring the two together? Why not build Magento stores that talk to SAP—in real time?
That’s exactly what we do. Our solution is certified on SAP NetWeaver technology, and we’re official Magento Technology Partners. We bring the full power of Magento to manufacturers and distributors running SAP.

How the SAPgento solution works
Magento and SAP work together in harmony.
SAPgento Integration Highlights
Corevist’s method of connecting Magento to SAP® is completely independent of the user interface design. That means your design team is free to customize the look and feel of your customer-facing Magento site to suit your needs.
Your online b2b customers will only see what they’re supposed to see based on the business rules you set in SAP®. You can create customized micro-catalogs for individual customers or groups of customers. As customers log in, they are automatically routed to the right catalog with the right products and pricing based on your business rules.
While your web customers browse and shop for products, they can see real-time availability, as it is defined in SAP®. Your SAP® item inventory is affected by web transactions. The inventory is decreased on the web and in SAP® whenever any online order is placed. Also, any stock update in SAP® simultaneously updates the stock in your Magento storefront. If an item is out of stock, and an estimated arrival date exists in SAP®, you can choose to show that to your web customers.
BUSINESS RULE ENFORCEMENT
Our SAP®-integrated shopping cart and checkout process ensures that all SAP® ordering rules, freight and tax calculations are executed while transactions are processed – all in real time — eliminating any errors or data inconsistencies.
POST-ORDER CUSTOMER SERVICE
Informed customers are satisfied customers. Give your dealers, distributors and sales reps real-time, self-service access to the questions they ask the most, like “Where is my order?”, “When will it arrive?”, and “Can I have another copy of that invoice?”.
SPECIAL PRICES AND DISCOUNTS
Special prices or discounts for a particular period can be assigned to particular customers, customer groups, items, or item groups from SAP® and immediately reflected in your Magento storefront. Discounts made in the web shop are taken into account in SAP® and reflected on the sales order.
ONLINE BILL PAY
Using our system, your customers can pay open invoices using e-check, ACH, or a credit card and payments are posted directly in SAP®.
Corevist’s cloud-based application enables you to have your new web sales channel up and running in a short time. With minimal up-front implementation costs, your ROI becomes achievable in a few months.
Once Corevist establishes a secure connection to your SAP® system, we leverage all of the work you have done and ensure that SAP® remains your system of record.
