A templated Shopify integration delivered by Navigator Business Solutions

The Navigator SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition BTP Flows act as a digital bridge between your Shopify store and SAP systems, automating order processing, handling errors gracefully, and keeping your sales channels in sync. This translates to a smoother customer experience, fewer errors, and potentially reduced operational costs.

Sell through Shopify with Smoother Order Processing and Fewer Errors:

Imagine a well-oiled machine. When a customer orders something on your Shopify store, the Navigator Integration Suite iFlow on the BTP acts like a digital bridge that seamlessly transmits that order information to your SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition system. This eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing errors and saving time.

Automatic Error Handling and Order Retry:

Even with automated processes, things don't always go perfectly, and occasionally there might be glitches in the data transfer.  The Navigator integration on the BTP acts like a safety net. If an error occurs when sending an order to S/4 Public, the system automatically places it in a retry queue. This ensures that the order gets another shot at processing successfully, without interrupting the flow of other orders or manual intervention.

Real-time Order Tracking:

Once your warehouse ships the order, The Navigator integration on the BTP can automatically send the tracking information back to Shopify. This keeps your customers informed and reduces the need for them to inquire about their purchases.

Up-to-Date Inventory and Pricing:

The Navigator integration on the BTP can optionally synchronize your inventory levels and product pricing between Shopify and SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This ensures that your online store always reflects what's available and avoids any confusion for your customers due to outdated inventory information.

What is a templated integration solution?

The power of pre-built integrations

Running a business involves a complex juggling act, and at the center of it all might be your ERP system. It handles essential tasks like inventory, finance, order management, and more. But what happens when your ERP needs to talk to other software, like your customer relationship manager (CRM) or online store?

This is where a templated integration solution, like SAP's Business Technology Platform (BTP) delivered by Navigator Business Solutions, comes in. Imagine them as bridges connecting your ERP system to other programs. These solutions offer pre-made connectors and configurations that address common scenarios, saving you time and effort. They act as a springboard, allowing you to link your ERP to other systems quickly and efficiently, while keeping the core of your ERP solution 'clean' and free from messy code.

What is SAP's Business Technology Platform (BTP)?

One unified platform for everything.

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) is a unified platform for all code that runs a modern business. Instead of multiple products and codebases that need integration and periodic upgrades as an organization grows or evolves, BTP is a universal software platform that atomizes business software functions and allows these functions to integrate and keep running as a business grows or evolves.
