PIM integrated for: The SAP ERP system

Streamline operations with an integration between SAP and PIM

SAP prides itself on being a leader in a wide range of categories, but handling product data (images, videos, long texts, certifications, etc.) is NOT one of them. This is precisely why it is important to integrate SAP ERP with a PIM system. An integration will result in a wide range of benefits, below you can see some of the most value-creating: 

  • A PIM SAP integration lets you handle all product information in one place, i.e., descriptions, images, video material, technical specifications, etc. from any PIM System. 
  • A PIM SAP integration opens up the opportunity of quickly and dynamically creating brochures, data sheets and various marketing materials. Of course, always with up-to-date data. 
  • A PIM SAP integration also makes it possible to easily keep e-commerce sites, websites, marketplaces, and other sales channels supported with product information directly from the PIM system. 

Create unique benefits with a PIM SAP integration

An integration between the ERP system SAP and PIM provides benefits both ways. Best practice is to keep the two systems as close to standard configuration as possible. That is, PIM handles channel data while SAP handles transactional data. This offers the following advantages: 

  • A close integration between PIM and SAP means that you can keep SAP simple and streamlined. Only transactional data should be included. All other data is in the PIM system. This results in better standardization, which means fewer customizations of SAP. 
  • With the few adjustments of SAP, the cost of operating ERP will decrease. 
  • It is thus possible to make upgrades of SAP faster and more securely than before. This is the outcome of the minimum number of configurations. Fewer adjustments mean fewer parts that can malfunction. 
  • By making publications directly in PIM, you can take advantage of the fact that the PIM system retrieves data (prices, stock status, item numbers, etc.) directly from SAP at the exact moment they are to be used. 
  • Make easy and quick price lists, catalogues, brochures, product sheets, etc. - even with a guarantee that you have the latest prices, designations etc.
