7 SAP-Integrated Promotions You Can Set Up on Your B2B eCommerce Website

By Ray Mannion, Corevist Solution Architect

SAP-integrated eCommerce promotions bring lots of value to SAP companies and to their customers. eCommerce promotions drive sales for the company, and they provide customers with value which they might not have experienced otherwise. The key is to build these promotions in the right place, using the right SAP functionality, so everything runs smoothly.

Any time you’re integrating Magento eCommerce to SAP (or using any other eCommerce platform, for that matter), you need to get one thing straight: put SAP first as the system of record. SAP is already the master software for business processes, so this is the most logical approach to take. It reduces data duplication and maintenance. This is especially true when you’re setting up SAP-integrated promotions for your B2B eCommerce website. The best SAP B2B eCommerce architecture will establish everything in SAP, then carry that logic to the web and the eCommerce store.

Understanding the difference between the different dates on the PO



Confusion abounds when discussing which fields to use on the PO to get my stuff delivered on time...
Here is the short and skinny of it and then I'll open the floor for comments:
  • The "Delivery Schedule" tab, of the PO, holds the delivery date. This is the official date as to when the product will be delivered...
  • On the same tab is the field "Statistical Delivery Date" which stores the original requested delivery date. This is the field that is used to measure Vendor compliance to on time delivery. i.e. You measure vendor performance based on the original date and not the adjusted date.
