“Product assortments, price structures, stock information and supply chain infrastructures of three systems perfectly combined into only one platform”

The challenge

How can differences in product assortments, price structures, stock information, and supply chain infrastructures of three different systems be combined into one single platform?

Through the Magento SAP connector, we were able to realise the best eCommerce solution in spite of the complexity arising from the different SAP systems. The Heidelberg eCommerce solution combines three SAP systems and its product assortments on one Magento Platform, using a PIMcore solution to enrich data that is retrieved from the different SAP systems.

“Through the real-time interfacing of the SAP connector, all important information is accurately retrieved from the specific SAP systems”

Result

Youwe believes in using every system for what it is made for. We believe that the logic available in an ERP system such as SAP should not be replaced, but used efficiently. The Magento SAP connector enables Magento to work without the complexity of price structures, specific customer delivery dates or stock information by using the information at hand in SAP. This important information is all retrieved from the specific SAP systems by using the real-time interfacing of the SAP connector.
