Sana Commerce is a B2B web shop that is installed inside your ERP and deliveres true ERP integration
Sana Commerce is a B2B web shop that is installed inside your ERP and deliveres true ERP integration. In this way, the web shop leverages the existing ERP information and calculations. This is how we ensure that companies who invested a lot in their ERP, do not need to invest again in setting up their web shop. Your customers benefit as well, with customer pricing, assortments and transparency in their (order)history and other business data. All this e-commerce data is maintained and calculated in only one database, through ERP integration.
Integration vs. Interfacing
They all say they are integrated. Sana really is.
Classic webshops can run autonomously, meaning without the help of the ERP integration. Using interfaces, information is synchronized every now and then, and calculations and customizations are done twice: once in the web store, once in the ERP. It goes without saying that this is a costly and sub-optimal solution. However, Sana is installed within the ERP with certified components, using the ERP’s business logic and information like no other.
Leverage your ERP investment
Your online sales channel should benefit from your ERP investment.
We know what it takes to setup and run an ERP environment. Implementation was costly and took quite some time of your staff. Classic interfacing web shops that synchronize their data, need to be maintained manually when your ERP changes. An integrated web shop like Sana leverages these investments, by integrally using the calculations and data in the web shop.
Benefits of ERP integration
Better customer service and higher sales efficiency.
ERP integration with your web shop not only benefits your customer service, it also improves your sales efficiency. We’ve listed some of the benefits:
No lengthy and expensive interfacing projects, no misunderstandings between your ERP vendor, hosting providers and webshop agencies; the out-of-the-box integration of Sana can be offered at a fixed price. Integration delivers clarity and a quick set-up.
Better customer service
Not only do your customer see their entire order history, pending orders and outstanding amounts, they as well get informed about the exact pricing, availability, and necessary parts and add-on’s for the products they buy.
No more double work
With a web shop that interfaces with an ERP most proceedings are done twice: in the shop and in the ERP. However, with an integrated web shop like Sana, all proceedings only have to be done one time, within the ERP.
Lower cost of maintenance
Changing assortment structures, trade agreements or discount terms; Sana automatically takes care of that since it simply follows what happens in the ERP. Single cost. Double advantage.
Since the Sana part within the ERP is delivered for current and past supported ERP versions, it is easy to upgrade your ERP. The Sana web shop will just keep running, with the new available ERP version as well.
Return on Investment (ROI)
A high return on investment (ROI) compared to an interfaced web shop
A web shop based on ERP integration can be brought live much quicker than an interfaced web shop. Since the integrated architecture is much simpler than an interfaced setup, the implementation can be offered for a fixed price. Being quicker online also means that the revenue starts to contribute earlier to the result. The return on investment (ROI) for Sana is much higher compared to interfaced web shops.
