SAP Business One Connector
*SAP Business One Connector & Add-on included in the installer
SAP Business One software is created specifically for small and midsized businesses. It's a powerful application and iVend Retail seamlessly integrates with it to help retailers better manage every aspect of their daily retail operations. SAP Business One is an affordable, easy to use, and quick to implement ERP and has more than 30,000 installations worldwide.
iVend Retail integrates with SAP Business One using the standard DI APIs provided as a part of SAP Business One Software Development Kit. iVend Retail also integrates UDFs (User Defined Fields) defined on Business Partner and Item Master in SAP Business One into iVend Retail.
There are over 25 masters and numerous transactions which integrate between iVend Retail and SAP Business One.
When installed, iVend Retail configures 2 services – integration and replication which are utilized for integrating the 2 applications and to also replicate retail data and transactions across the retail enterprise.
Considering the sensitivity of retail operations, only a few masters have a bi-directional integration. Most of the others are defined in the core ERP – SAP Business One and integrated into iVend Retail and the entire Retail enterprise.
iVend Retail and SAP Business One are normally configured at a central location, typically the Head Office. Retailers prefer to configure these applications on 2 separate servers with the iVend Retail server having a static IP (one that can be searched on the Internet). This is done so that the store servers are able to ‘locate' the central iVend Retail server, called iVend Enterprise, for the purposes of integration and replication.
The application is so designed that it is not necessary for the stores to be "Always Connected" to the central iVend Retail server (iVend Enterprise). The synchronization between the store operations and iVend Enterprise can be scheduled on a pre-defined frequency and whenever the Internet connectivity is restored, the store operations get synchronized with iVend Enterprise.Read More
