There’s no doubt that Amazon is the world’s biggest online marketplace where businesses from various industries sell a wide range of products. With Amazon Seller Central, businesses can easily handle every aspect of their Amazon store and listings. However, solely handling things on the front end is not sufficient, which is why most companies also use a backend ERP system like SAP to manage their orders, inventory, and other eCommerce operations. As a result, there is also the need to sync Amazon with the ERP to ensure that both systems have accurate and up-to-date data. That is where businesses require reliable and seamless Amazon and SAP S/4HANA integration.
And recently, APPSeCONNECT hosted an exciting and insightful webinar where we showcased the live integration features, and how it accurately syncs sales cycle between both systems. Read on for a quick recap of the webinar to learn more about integrating Amazon and SAP.
