Take advantage of seamless integration

SAP Customer Experience (CX) can be integrated with the on-premise solutions of SAP CRM, SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA using integration scenarios predefined in SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI). Such a connection enables uni-/bi-directional synchronization of master data such as customers, contacts or products, full integration of transactional scenarios, for example opportunities, quotations and sales orders including real-time ERP pricing and representation of the ERP document flow as well as field service and support integration into SAP Service Cloud with native integration into SAP ERP, for example for service confirmations, invoices as well as contract management with SLAs and the installed base.

The integration of SAP Sales and Service Cloud (SAP C4C) with SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA simplifies sales and service processes. When a new customer registers in your online shop, their customer data is immediately available in the backend (ERP system) without data replication. Customer service handles inquiries about an order directly in SAP Service Cloud and also has direct insight into the associated financial processes in SAP S/4HANA, for example. By not having to carry out incident acceptance, stock withdrawal for spare parts and billing in different systems, you can process service orders end-to-end. In addition, the Internet of Things (IoT) using sensors enables the automatic creation of error messages and service tickets, as well as subsequent processing and billing. In short, CRM and ERP are growing closer together.

  • Sales employees have to work in several systems at the same time

  • Insufficient flow of information between departments

What the interaction of SAP CX and SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA additionally offers you

Product availability check

Produktverfuegbarkeit | Integration SAP CX und SAP ERP bzw. SAP S4HANA | IBsolutionThe simulation or transfer of an order also provides an ATP (available-to-promise) result from SAP ERP. The confirmation is non-binding based on the requested date (the header date is copied to items). A simulated scheduling agreement appears in the sales order.

Credit limit check

Kreditlimit-Prüfung | Integration SAP CX und SAP ERP bzw. SAP S/4HANA | IBsolutionWhen an order is simulated or transferred, information on credit status, credit limit, and credit risk is returned from the SAP ERP system – including a warning message if the amount exceeds the limit set for the customer in SAP ERP as part of credit management. The credit status is part of the approval conditions and is determined when an order is simulated or transferred.

Bill of material (BOM) explosion

Stuecklistenaufloesung | Integration SAP CX und SAP ERP bzw. SAP S/4HANA | IBsolutionIf an order is created for a material that is created as a bill of material (BOM) in the SAP ERP system, the simulation or transfer of an order also explodes multi-level bills of material from SAP ERP. Price or quantity adjustments for a BOM are only supported on the header item.

Product substitutions

Produkt-Substitution | Integration SAP CX und SAP ERP bzw. SAP S/4HANA | IBsolutionIf a product substitution has been configured in SAP ERP, the original product entered in the sales order is replaced by a substituted product in the external pricing call. Via external pricing calls, products are substituted if the condition – example: the entered product is no longer in stock or has been discontinued – is met.
