What is an SAP e-commerce platform?

SAP Ecommerce Integration | Corevist Commerce
a

SAP e-commerce is a self-service digital platform that reads and writes SAP data in real time.

Financial information, product inventory, customer accounts, and much more—all these things live in SAP. As B2B commerce increasingly moves online, a problem arises. SAP is written in its own language, ABAP, which is difficult to present on the web. Worse, SAP e-commerce really requires live SAP data displayed (and modified) in real time through the e-commerce store.

An SAP ecommerce platform solves this problem by syncing data between SAP and the e-commerce store. Ideally, this happens in real time, though data with a low refresh rate can by synced by batch updates.

That’s why we built Corevist Commerce to integrate to SAP in real time.

You won’t get that real-time integration out of the box with SAP hybris commerce.

Isn’t hybris the only platform for SAP ecommerce?

 

Not at all.

 

In fact, there are 3 basic paths to SAP e-commerce.

Integration is the key.

SAP Ecommerce Integration | How Mature Is Your Architecture? | Corevist

SAP e commerce needs live ERP data.

 

SAP hybris ecommerce doesn’t include it out of the box.

 

4 examples of why it matters:

In cloud-based SAP commerce, accurate pricing is everything.

If you’ve negotiated a discount with a specific account, you want them to see that price when they log in to your SAP e commerce platform. If they see list price, or a price with no volume discount, you may lose the sale—or at the very least, your Customer Service department may get a frustrated call.

Contract terms aren’t the only modification which pricing undergoes. Products with stepped volume discounts by quantity need real-time pricing data loaded from SAP.

Why?

It’s simply too cumbersome to rebuild all those business rules in your e commerce platform.

You already invested in that complexity once–in your SAP ERP system. Why not leverage it for the web with minimal additional investment?

That’s why we built Corevist Commerce to reflect your SAP pricing rules in ecommerce. The same pricing rules that a CSR would give your customer over the phone are now available through self-service, in real time, in Corevist Commerce. You should expect nothing less of your SAP ecommerce platform.

Note–SAP hybris ecommerce doesn’t include live SAP integration out of the box.

Like contract pricing, live inventory availability is crucial to successful SAP e-commerce.

The e-commerce platform isn’t really self-service if your buyers have to call customer service again and again to get accurate inventory levels from SAP.

Since inventory data lives in SAP already, why not carry that data to your SAP e-commerce solution in real time?

That’s what Corevist Commerce provides.

Your SAP ecommerce platform is loaded with real, live inventory data that’s pulled from SAP when the user needs it–not in nightly batch updates.

Note–SAP hybris ecommerce doesn’t include live SAP integration out of the box.

Both your Customer Service Representatives and your customers need to track orders.

All of this data lives in SAP, so it makes sense to integrate that SAP data into your ecommerce solution.

As you move to a digital-first model, it’s tempting to imagine that all your orders will come through your new SAP e-commerce portal. However, that probably won’t happen—at least, not initially. Your customers come from diverse backgrounds, and some will be reluctant to make the switch to self-service SAP e-commerce (though there are many strategies you can implement to drive e-commerce adoption). In all likelihood, your orders will continue to come from a variety of sources—e-commerce, phone, fax, and email. You’ll be living in an omnichannel world.

It’s important to track all of your orders in one place. You want an order-tracking interface that allows your CSRs and your customers to view and interact with your SAP order data in real time. That way, everything is centralized and you avoid data duplication.

That’s why we built live order tracking into Corevist Commerce.

Our Order Tracking portal allows your customers and your internal users to perform the last step in ecommerce–check order status against SAP data that includes integration with all major shipping carriers.

“Can I still buy on credit this month?”

That’s a question your customers will ask when they go to use your new SAP ecommerce solution. In the days of phone/fax/email ordering, your customers could expect a Customer Service Representative to alert them to any issues with their credit standing.

If you’re moving to self-service ordering, you need to account for credit checks, too.

That’s why we built Corevist Commerce to pull live SAP data in the customer dashboard.

We believe a good SAP e-commerce platform must query SAP for real-time data on the customer’s credit limits. This allows the customer to see how much credit they have remaining.

In the case of Corevist Commerce, we return an error message to the customer if they’re over their credit limit. That way, they can navigate to the payments area, pay down invoices, and start placing orders again–all without a call to Customer Service.

Note–SAP hybris ecommerce doesn’t include live SAP integration out of the box.

It’s not just those four data points.

Here’s the full picture.

Each of these is crucial to a
successful SAP e-commerce platform.

(Note: Unlike SAP hybris ecommerce, Corevist supplies each of these, fully integrated to SAP.)

Displaying accurate ecommerce data from SAP

If you’re going to give your customers online ordering through SAP ecommerce, it should be easier than ordering through phone/fax/email. Your customers are accustomed to getting contract pricing from your CSRs. That data lives in SAP, and it’s a critical piece of the UX puzzle for SAP-integrated ecommerce. And while contract pricing can be synced between SAP and ecommerce through batch updates, many other data points can’t.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide customer-specific contract pricing from SAP in real time.

Where pricing scales come into play, it’s best to use a real-time ecommerce integration to SAP to carry your business rules to the web. With a batch update architecture, you’ll have to rebuild all those business rules in your ecommerce platform (and most likely, in your middleware, too). You’ve already invested in that complexity in your SAP system, so why rebuild it?

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide scaled quantity pricing from SAP in real time.

Here’s the first data point that you absolutely can’t get in ecommerce without a real-time SAP integration. Nightly batch updates are useless to provide accurate inventory data from SAP to the ecommerce store. If 2 customers log in to ecommerce simultaneously and both order the last widget in stock, one of them isn’t going to get it. That means a phone call or email follow up (increased cost for you) and a delay (frustration for your customer). At scale, this introduces dangerous friction into your buyer experience.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide product-specific inventory availability from SAP in real time.

This is really a subset of product-specific inventory availability, but it’s worth pointing out on its own. ATP (available to promise) calculations live in SAP. It’s useless to load them in ecommerce via batch updates, since they’re based on inventory quantities that change in real time. If your product allocation process includes ATP calculations, you can’t really do SAP e-commerce without a real-time integration to give your customers accurate ATP numbers.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide customer-specific ATP calculations from SAP in real time.

RDD/EDD is complicated. Some businesses may choose to reflect these in ecommerce from SAP. Others may choose to run manual RDD exclusion calendars behind the scenes. Either way, your SAP ecommerce platform must take RDD into account if your business currently offers choice of RDD to customers.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide accurate RDD/EDD data from SAP in real time.

The whole point of SAP-integrated ecommerce is self-service. If your customers don’t have accurate visibility into their credit standing in the ecommerce store, either they’ll place orders when they’re over their credit limit, or they’ll call Customer Service to get a reading of their credit status. Either situation costs you operational efficiency by creating more orders that need a manual follow-up. Rather than depend on that wasteful process, why not display live credit standing from SAP in ecommerce? That way, your customers can pay down invoices themselves and keep buying on credit.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide accurate customer credit standing from SAP in real time.

If you’re moving to a self-service model with SAP-integrated ecommerce, you need to account for the post-order stage of the customer journey. Without an order status portal, your customers are used to calling Customer Service to get status updates. To leverage the power of SAP e-commerce fully, you need to provide real-time, self-service visibility into order status. Corevist Commerce makes this easy with real-time order status visibility, which reads all open orders in SAP tied to that sold-to, regardless of how the order was placed (phone, fax, email, ecommerce, EDI, etc.). It’s a crucial piece of the SAP ecommerce puzzle.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide customer-specific order status from SAP in real time.

Writing accurate ecommerce data to SAP

If you build a standalone system with no integration to SAP, or if you depend on batch updates, you’re going to get order errors. You’ll have no visibility into those errors until a CSR types the order into SAP, or until your nightly batch update. When the errors do show up, they’re your responsibility to fix. Why not make it your customer’s responsibility with intelligent error messages in ecommerce? That’s what Corevist Commerce provides. Our error messaging queries your SAP system in real time, then returns error-fixing instructions to your customers. Because Corevist only allows 100% SAP-ready orders to post, you can reassign your CSRs to higher-value tasks.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t post 100% error-free, self-service orders to SAP in real time.

It’s a given. Customers are going to order the wrong SKU, whether through typos, discontinued SKUs, or incorrect SKU permissions. Corevist’s intelligent error messaging alerts the customer to the problem so they can order the right SKU.

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t guarantee accurate SKU acceptance in SAP.

If your CSRs currently give shipping quotes through logic in SAP, you can carry that same logic to the ecommerce store with a real-time SAP integration. This ensures that your customers get the same level of certainty about their order that they would if they phoned in—but without the hassle for them (and without the cost for you).

Note: Without real-time integration out of the box, SAP hybris ecommerce can’t provide the same shipping calculations from SAP in real time that your customers get when they call Customer Service.

Enforcing business rules from SAP in ecommerce

Not every SAP ecommerce user needs to be mapped to a single SAP sold-to. Many of our clients use SAP ecommerce for their Sales teams to place orders on behalf of customers. If your Sales reps are tied to multiple sold-tos in SAP, you can carry that same mapping to ecommerce with Corevist. In that case, your reps can select the right sold-to from a list to help them buy on behalf of all their clients. Likewise, accounts with multiple ship-tos can display the same options in ecommerce that are associated with them in SAP.

Whatever payment methods are associated with your customer’s sold-to in SAP, you can carry those same methods to the ecommerce store. That means each customer sees the payment options you’ve assigned them—nothing more, nothing less. And when it comes to e-payments for open invoices, Corevist Bill Pay delivers.

Whatever credit limit you’ve associated with your customer’s sold-to in SAP, you can carry that limit to the ecommerce store. That means automatic enforcement of credit limits and self-service credit management for your buyers.
