SBOeConnect allows you to safely and securely exchange data in real time concerning customer details, orders, item details, payment & shipping information between Magento eCommerce and SAP Business One ERP solution. By following SOA architecture and Magento web services APIs, SBOeConnect performs all data exchanges through secure SOAP Data Exchange format which provides smoother data transfer without any data loss.

You can set product attributes, multiple images, and custom options against each web product from within SAP Business One. Also existing web products can be downloaded from storefront to SAP Business One all at once. Automatic currency conversation support: You can have separate currency setup for your web store and ERP. So whenever any order is synchronized in any way (from eCommerce to ERP or from ERP to eCommerce)the currency will automatically be converted into the set currency of that platform.

Customers, orders, item,payment and shipping details will be integrated from Magento eCommerce to SAP Business One and vice versa.

Updates in customer information,billing & shipping address, product information, and inventory detail will synchronize bi-directionally. Product Configuration: SAP Business One items can be configured as simple, configurable, bundled and grouped products and can be uploaded to the e-Commerce storefront. Configurable attributes,price differences for the products can be controlled from SAP Business One itself. Exclusive properties related to a product can be treated as custom option in SAP Business One. On the other hand all products of multiple websites and web stores of eCommerce storefront can be downloaded to SAP Business One.

Released Posted on December 7, 2012 :

SBOeConnect, Integration Connector between Magento eCommerce and SAP Business One ERP system, offering more than 60 Fully Automated Integration Points, now enriched with new features with the introduction of SBOeConnect 2.4. This article depicts a brief insight of these amazing new Dynamic Features.

Guest Customers: As we know in SAP Business One ERP system, defined records of Business Partners (Customers) can be added. However in this competitive age of eBusiness, it has been seen that more than 40% Checkouts at shopping carts are Guest Checkouts. Previously SBOeConnect sync the Guest Checkout Web Orders to SAP Business One system. But now with the SBOeConnect 2.4, Guest Customer’s details can be recorded in SAP B1 B.P Master Data with a different B.P Code. Business Owners can easily track the Guest Customers from their ERP system and can plan further marketing activities for Repeat Sales.

Website wise Customer Group Specific Pricing: Magento supports Customer Group specific pricing through ‘Tier Pricing’ feature. Different Customer Groups can have different pricing structure of the same item. SBOeConnect 2.4 added one more layer in this feature to support Multiple Websites. Now One Item can have different price in different website for different Customer Groups in Magento. SAP Business One Pricelists will be mapped with Magento website and Customer Groups to provide this feature.

Multilingual Product Description: Magento supports multilingual Product Description through multiple Store view. SAP Business One from 8.8 onwards support Multilingual Product Description in Item Master Data. SBOeConnect 2.4 mapped Magento Store view with SAP B1 Item Master Description field. So moving forward any ERP Item uploaded to the web having Product Description in multiple languages, same settings will be automatically created in Magento. This feature will support Business Owners to launch same website/products in several geographic and in different languages.

Support for Virtual Product Type: eBusinesses dealing in some sort of Service (for example- Telecom) through Online Store, generally use Virtual Products in Magento. In simple words Virtual Products do not require inventory maintenance. SBOeConnect 2.4 now offering a full mapping facility of Non-Inventory Item of SAP Business One with Virtual Product Type of Magento. So moving forward SBOeConnect becomes suitable for eBusiness dealing in Service.

Payment and Transaction Management: SBOeConnect 2.4 will sync back Payment Method from Magento to SAP Business One in Sales Order. So SAP B1 Users can easily track through which Payment Method the Order has been placed in web. In case of Online Payment in Magento, Online Transaction ID (If Returned from the Payment Gateway to Magento), will sync back to SAP B1, so business owners can track their payments with Bank.

Incoming Payment: Incoming Payment document are often associated with the Invoice in SAP B1. This is a financial document which is very important to Accounts/Finance department to get a clear picture whether or not the Invoice has been paid. Now with SBOeConnect 2.4, against successful web transactions in Magento, Incoming Payment will be generated in SAP Business One.

Discount Coupon & Gift Certificate Discounts: Now a Days Discount Management is one of the key to success in eBusiness. Repeat Sales increase through the use of Discount Coupon and Gift Certificate which visitors can redeem at their checkout process. SBOeConnect 2.4 fully supports synchronization of these discounts to SAP Business One Sales Order and maintains same order value both in eCommerce and ERP systems.

Web Order Approval Process: In an eBusiness which follows Order to Make (For example Gift Items, Jewelry), validating web orders are really important. So for those Business Types, SBOeConnect 2.4 provides a facility of syncing Web Orders as Draft Sales Order to SAP B1. SAP B1 users will be able to see Alerts against these Drafts and can validate the Order before converting it to a Sales Order for Production Process.

Sync Orders as per Chosen Web Order Status: Magento supports different Order Statuses for different stage like ‘Pending’, ‘Processing’, ‘Shipped’, ‘Complete’, ‘Cancel’, on top of that there can be custom Order Statuses too which can be defined. With SBOeConnect 2.4, Business Owners can choose which Web Orders will sync back to SAP B1 through a Dynamic Mapping screen.

Multiple Warehouse Management: Set a particular warehouse to fulfill all your web orders, set Location Specific Warehouse which can be mapped with multiple websites of Magento where each website is targeted for different region, Set Multiple Warehouse to get a combined Product Inventory in Magento, all these Warehouse Management Process are supported in SBOeConnect 2.4 between SAP Business One and Magento. So now Sales Orders can be fulfilled with more effective planning and Stock Management becomes flexible.

Currency Symbol Mapping: SBOeConnect 2.4 offer a currency symbol mapping facility between Magento and SAP B1, this will eliminate the chances of error in Order Synchronization and sync proper order value with currency conversion as and when required.

Great inegration and support team We have used SBOeConnect for some years now and we are very happy with the product and the InSynk company. Very helpfull and skilled People!! Dag-Ivar Gjeteren AS Norway January 20, 2014
This is the best product on the market for transferring business data between Magento amp; SAP B1. This software really helped us solving the Magento problems for our clients. Implementation and customizing works really great. This is not only because of the software but also the great supportteam! November 18, 2011
"SBOeConnect has greatly improved our business efficiency, especially the speed and accuracy of order processing and the ability to communicate more swiftly with all our customers. Although we were the first SBO installation in the Philippines and everything was done remotely, we found the process of installing SBOeConnect and customizing it to our needs very smooth and professionally handled. With many software companies, customizations are difficult and expensive and technical support can often be a nightmare. But every step of the way, we found SBO very reasonable in terms of pricing and extremely efficient in terms of support; in fact they have been one of the most responsive software partners we have ever worked with. We highly recommend SBOeConnect and the SBO team to anyone looking to make the most of their investment in SAP B1." - Dylan Wilk, Vice President, Human Nature November 18, 2011

Can customers be automatically setup as unique Business Partners in SAP when they create an account on the website?

Most integrations seem to just setup all the orders under one umbrella Business Partner account, which does not give good marketing visibility when trying to mine the data.

Is this SAP supported for any updates that might come from SAP? Will this take extra support when updates happen or is it part of the product?

Many thanks.
