Customer 

We’ll help you migrate all of your Customer’s information during the integration process. Customers registered online on the Opencart website will be synchronized with the SAP B1 database. Also, their contact information, billing, and shipping addresses will be transferred as well. Moreover, if the customer information is changed on one platform, it will be updated on the second one. 

Item 

With the Firebear team, you can sync all data about items between SAP B1 and OpenCart. All items that will be integrated work bi-directionally. 

Order

We can help you integrate Order data between these platforms. Sales Orders placed in Opencart will be synchronized with the SAP B1 database. Taxes and Shipping Charges will be mapped with accuracy. In addition, Guest Checkout Sales Orders can also be synchronized between the two systems. 

Stock 

The Firebear team can synchronize Stock information between any two systems. Stock Updates that occur on SAP Business One go back to OpenCart. 

Invoice 

With our help, you can also integrate Invoices in both Opencart to SAP B1 and SAP B1 to Opencart. From payment processing, the payment will be synchronized between one platform to the other. 

Delivery 

We can help you integrate Order information between these platforms. Deliveries that were created in SAP B1 Sales Orders will be synchronized with OpenCart as a Shipment Document. 

Integration Principles 

We have a few basic principles for working with any integration. SAP Business One and OpenCart Integration are no exception. 

Two-way connection 

The two-way communication channel is the basic principle for working with integrations. We provide fully configurable import and export profiles that you can use in your data transfer processes. In addition, import and export profiles are separate and therefore there is no need to set up both features at the same time. 

Scheduler

You can simplify and automate SAP Business One Integration with OpenCart thanks to the built-in scheduler. When installing an update that is tied to the same object can use different update timelines. For example, order information must be transmitted weekly from OpenCart to SAP B1: 

  • Select weekly updates in your export profile. 
  • Next, select the day of the week that will be tied to the updates. 
  • To synchronize order data from SAP Business One to OpenCart before the scheduled time, you can use an asynchronous technique that you can launch in your profile. 
  • You can do the same thing with the import profile to move order information back. 

Mapping

We use mapping tools to simplify integration between the two systems. Often, third-party attributes must fall within the requirements of a native environment. Therefore, data updates must satisfy the receiving system’s criteria. If you try to pull this process off manually, it can be very time-consuming for you. The Firebear team developed a special mapping grid that is available to you in every import and export profile. You have the ability to create a mapping scheme that fits any attribute to the rules and requirements of the host platform. Also, you can save and load mapping profiles for use in future integrations. You can even do this trick with SAP Business One and OpenCart Integration. 

Other features 

Another significant feature we use when conducting an installation is support for various connection standards. We store a number of different data file formats available for integrations, including XML, CSX, XLSX, ODS, and JSON.

Besides, we use Google Sheets to synchronize information. We can integrate your entire data with this platform using all our tools. Additional data transfer options include Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, FTP/SFTP, and direct URL uploads.

We would like to remind you that Sap Business One can be integrated with a variety of platforms, and Firebear Studio can help. Contact us using the following link to learn more about the SAP Business One and OpenCart connection, as well as other integrations:
