SAP Business One Introduction

Let’s briefly run through the SAP Business One platform. This platform is a resource planning software solution that is designed primarily for small and medium-sized businesses. But in spite of this, it has all the functionality to work with companies on a larger scale. The main objectives of SAP B1 are to automate daily processes and simplify many business operations that are related to finance sales and human resources. You can integrate BigCommerce with this system if you feel a lack of functionality. 

Furthermore, SAP Business One has 15 functional modules, which are the core platform: 

  • Administration. The module gives you the ability to set up core settings.
  • CRM. In this module, you can connect common sales employee tasks with the other modules.
  • Financials. The module allows you to customize the Chart of Accounts as well as create the core Journal Entries.
  • Opportunities. SAP Business One gives you the ability to track potential Sales and Purchases to improve the value of your business. 
  • Sales – A/R. The module provides the ability to control sales flow which starts as Quotation and proceeds to Order, becoming Delivery, and then AR Invoice.
  • Purchasing – A/P. This module provides information about purchase flow from Quotation to Order, GRPO, and AP Invoice.
  • Business Partners. SAP B1 enables you to manage master data of Leads, Customers, and Suppliers here.
  • Banking. A module that creates Incoming (sales) and Outgoing (purchase) payments.
  • Inventory. This module manages master data of goods to be sold/purchased along with their quantity/value in warehouses.
  • Resources. SAP Business One provides a function to determine where master data of resources should be used in production (capacity and planning).
  • Production. In this module, you can create Production orders and read the Bill of Materials master data.
  • Project Management. SAP Business One provides the ability to define projects (what you do when) in this module.
  • Material Requirements Planning. SAP Business One provides accurate forecasts of needed items in sales/production with this module. The main MRP is to make purchase order recommendations.
  • Service. The module provides the ability to manage service contract management and create service calls.
  • Human Resources. This module stores employee master data, including names, contact information, roles, etc.

Each module is designed for a specific business need, but they are all tightly connected within one system. You can also connect an external source of data to fuel your SAP Business One ERP system. And today we will tell you why it is necessary and can be done with BigCommerce platforms. In the next section, we’ll take a quick look at the BigCommerce platform and discuss its main features.

Product

With our help, you can also integrate SAP Business One items in BigCommerce as Products. You have the option of uploading new product data to SAP B1 Master Data. Also, when the product information is updated on one platform, it will also work for the second one. 

Inventory 

We can help you with the integration of inventory data and warehouses. Stock is updated from SAP Business One to BigCommerce, taking into account all features of the inventory and the products in it. 

Order 

With the Firebear team, you can integrate basic order information. BigCommerce web Sales Orders will be synchronized with the SAP B1 platform. 

Delivery 

You can also synchronize delivery information between the two platforms. With our help, you can integrate Shipment Tracking ID between the platforms for easy product tracking. 

Invoice 

We also provide the ability to integrate all invoice information. BigCommerce Invoices are synced to SAP Business One as A/R Invoice. 

Integration Principles 

We have certain principles for working with integrations that we adhere to at all times. SAP Business One with BigCommerce Integration is no exception to the rule.  

Two-way connection 

An important principle of our work with integrations is to have two-way connections between any two systems. This tool is fundamental to integrations. We provide easy-to-use import and export profiles that can be customized to the needs of any third-party system. 

Scheduler

To simplify and automate the SAP Business One Integration with the BigCommerce process, you can use our built-in scheduler. You can set times for updates that are tied to the same entity. For example, you have to transmit order data from BigCommerce to SAP B1 weekly:

  • Go to your export profile and choose weekly updates.
  • Then, select the day and transfer time for your BigCommerce SAP integration.
  • If you want to transfer information from SAP Business One with the new customer data from Pipedrive CRM before the scheduled, use the asynchronous method that you can enable in the profile.
  • To move customer data back, go to your import profile and make the same changes.

Mapping

Our mapping techniques can simplify your data synchronization between the two platforms. Third-party attributes must comply with the native environment’s requirements because all data must be transmitted according to the standards of the receiving system. This process usually takes a lot of time, but we can help you simplify it. We provide a mapping grid that appears in every import and export profile. With this feature, you can create a mapping scheme that matches any attribute to the accepting platform’s rules and requirements. With the Firebear team, you also have the ability to save mapping profiles and upload them for further use. 

Other features 

Another important feature, that can be applied to SAP Business One with BigCommerce and other integrations, is support for various connection standards. We provide a range of data file formats, including XML, CSX, XLSX, ODS, and JSON.

In addition, we use Google Sheets to work with information. Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, FTP/SFTP, and direct URL uploads are features that help to transfer additional data.

Keep in mind that Sap Business One may be integrated with a variety of platforms, and Firebear Studio can assist you with this. Contact us following the link below to get more information:
