Specifics of SAP

Introduction

Sana Commerce is the e-commerce solution for Microsoft Dynamics and SAP. The ERP systems have much in common, but at the same time there are many distinctions. For example, in Microsoft Dynamics NAV you can create prepacks which are not available in other ERP systems and vice versa, there are features in other ERP systems, for example in SAP, which are not available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

While developing the Sana add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics and SAP we try to make them as similar as possible in functionality and stick to the ERP coding conventions and best practices, but of course there are some differences depending on the ERP system Sana connects to.

From this article you will learn about Sana features which are not supported by SAP.

Product variants

There is no product variants functionality in the standard SAP ERP 6.0 system. Product variants are available in SAP for Retail (VERP). This is a vertical specific edition for which Sana will extend the support on a project basis.

Some of the customers that are running on the standard SAP system might have product variants implemented via a custom data model table. As this is a customization on the ERP side, the Sana add-on should be adjusted as well.

Prepacks

A prepack is a package assembled by a manufacturer, distributor or retailer which contains a specific number of items or a specific assortment of sizes, colors, etc. of a product. Prepacks is a feature of the Pebblestone Fashion add-on for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Thus, prepacks are not available in other ERP systems and will not be supported by SAP.

Webstore integrity check

Webstore integrity check tool is not available for Sana integrated with SAP. Sana provides a tool to check whether the main settings required for the correct functioning of a Sana web store are correctly configured in the ERP system. It validates web store settings and those related to catalog and order processing. You can see the status of each task, description, and open the related task settings if you need to change them, for example when the task failed.
