    SAP Integration with Vendr

    Hi,

    We have a client who is replacing their ERP solution with a SAP solution.

    Currently their website is a bespoke .Net site with everything from product data to order flow handled by hand-rolled code communicating with a bespoke database solution.

    They are going to be replacing this site in order to take advantage of SAP and are being advised to look at more off-the-shelf solutions (e.g. a WordPress site with WooCommerce or Shopify integrated with SAP).

    Obviously we would like to continue working with them and would prefer to go down the Umbraco route with possibly LESS bespoke code needing to be written to allow the company some increased flexibility that plugins can offer.

    My question therefore is: Can Vendr be configured to work with a SAP solution? If so, is there any documentation you could point me to?

    Thanks in advance,

    Alastair

    Hi Alastair,

    I must admit I'm not sure what a SAP integration would look like here, but there are a number of things that could help.

    1. If your product data needs to be located outside of Umbraco nodes you can take a look at the IProductAdapter interface that allows you pull product data from another source https://vendr.net/docs/core/2.1.0/umbraco-v9/key-concepts/product-adapters/

    2. If you need to perform tasks to sync things with the SAP product, we fire a LOT of events and so you should be able to hook into these to perform whatever tasks you need https://vendr.net/docs/core/2.1.0/umbraco-v9/key-concepts/events/

    Between those two, it should make the integration possible, but without really knowing how you'd need Vendr to work with SAP, and what your idea of an integration would look like, these are the best suggestions I can make right now.

    Hope this helps

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the reply. To be honest, not entirely sure myself what we would need to integrate, just needed a bit of re-assurance that things should be possible.

    I imagine that we would need to pull (or have pushed) products into Umbraco product catalog and also work with stock and order updates (as well as order placing) events.

    So, at a very high-level view, it would look like it should be possible to get things working.

    Over to the client and their SAP team now.

    Thanks again.
