APPSeCONNECT’s SAP S/4HANA and Zoho CRM Integration Overview

Our integration package between SAP S/4HANA and Zoho CRM offered many end-to-end connectors as part of our standard offering. However, one of our clients presented us with the requirement for real-time integration of sales orders between both systems, and as a result, we developed this latest integration package.

Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how this integration streamlines sales orders.

  1. When sales reps create a new order in Zoho CRM, it triggers our ProcessFlow to create the order in SAP S/4HANA as well.
  2. When the order is created in S/4HANA, our integration package also fetches the SAP Order Number and syncs it back to the order details in Zoho CRM.

So every time Zoho CRM sales orders are created, it is also updated in SAP S/4HANA, and the ERP data is further synced across both platforms instantly, enabling true real-time integration.

The Need for Real-time Integration

Most times, businesses prefer periodic integrations as it can sync more data with fewer API calls, reducing load and cost. And that is suitable as well as efficient for certain types of data, such as master data.

However, there are unique requirements among some users that call for real-time integration. Here are some examples of business processes that necessitate real-time sync:

  • Order Processing: When a customer places an order, it needs to be instantly reflected in both the CRM and ERP to ensure immediate processing and fulfillment.
  • Inventory Management: For businesses with high turnover rates, real-time updates prevent stockouts or overstock situations by ensuring inventory levels are always current.
  • Customer Support: Real-time access to customer data ensures support teams have the latest information to resolve issues promptly and manage help desk tickets efficiently.
  • Financial Transactions: Instant updates of financial records are critical for maintaining accurate books and complying with regulations.

In such processes, there is no alternative to real-time sync. Delays or inaccuracies can lead to operational inefficiencies, customer dissatisfaction, and compliance issues. This growing need for real-time integrations is driving businesses to adopt solutions like APPSeCONNECT’s SAP S/4HANA and Zoho CRM connector, ensuring seamless and immediate data synchronization for critical business functions.
