With APPSeCONNECT, Enkador has been able to work on a completely stable B2B website and reach out to more customers in Ecuador.

About:

ENKADOR SA has been in the Ecuadorian market since 1975. It is a company which produces, processes, installs, operates and manages industrial plants that fabricate and manufacture chemical, synthetic, artificial and natural fibers and filaments. With growing business over time, Enkador has reached out to more verticals.

Project Overview: 

Although Enkador has been an old player in the market, but they had restricted growth as their reach was limited. They were operating in a pure offline model due to unpopularity of ecommerce in their vertical. They were in need of a completely functional eCommerce website to emerge as a big player in their vertical in Ecuador. They opted for using Magento as their storefront. Also, they were using SAP ERP. Consequently, they were in need of a smart and intelligent ERP-Ecommerce integration platform to seamlessly transfer and maintain data between the applications.

The Challenges:

  • Due to the initial vertical-based unpopularity of eCommerce, Enkador's static website was not functional enough to meet up with the growing eCommerce demands and marketing challenges. They needed a more SEO-friendly, stable solution to meet the reach for marketing needs as well as B2B business scenarios/functionalities.
  • With the use of multiple business applications, the real-time price simulation for B2B customers from SAP ERP to Magento was a necessity.
  • Real-time B2B customer inclusion/exclusion for specific products needed to be reflected in Magento from SAP ERP.
  • Maintaining a multilingual store - able to cater to a large audience.
  • Manual data entry and duplicate data created more issues and cost.

The Solutions:
Integration: 
Magento with SAP All In One

  • After knowing about all their requirements and evaluating a lot of platforms, APPSeCONNECT suggested Enkador to use the Magento 2 eCommerce platform. The Magento experts at APPSeCONNECT helped them adopt the B2B ecommerce portal.
  • To meet the B2B requirements on their website, APPSeCONNECT provided the B2B Mage solution which constituted all the B2B functionalities
  • With a seamless and efficient application integration, real-time price simulation was enabled from SAP ERP to Magento to be assigned to the customers.
  • The highly demanded B2B customer inclusion/exclusion feature for certain products was easily enabled as per the business requirements.
  • To be able to reach out to a larger proportion of prospected buyers, the website was designed on a multilingual architecture.
  • Discount management was easy and automatic with bi-directional data sync from SAP ERP to Magento.
  • Real-time invoice/accounts statement in Magento was enabled from SAP ERP, for convenience.
  • Improved efficiency in sales and inventory management between SAP ERP and Magento ecommerce.
  • End to End Mapping of business objects between Magneto and SAP ERP.

The Benefits:

  • Attaining a completely new and efficient online web store.
  • Achieving popularity in Ecuador as an eCommerce platform.
  • Huge difference in orders on the online store as compared as compared to the previous offline model.
  • Able to cater to a larger market by being present in multiple languages.
