SAP API to Productoo by SAP Business Connector
How Productoo is connected to SAP
Productoo application communicates with other applications through 3 channels:
1) IDOCs / SAP Business connector
- It gives you a full connection to the world’s most spread and most developed ERP system SAP.
- We use IDOCs transfers.
- All communication is processed by the SAP Business Connector application.
2) XML transfers
- We use the well-known XML filetype for transferring data between systems.
- Productoo software can export data into XML and import data from XML files.
3) Productoo API
- Any software can use data provided by Productoo API.
4) SAP RFC
- Direct connection to SAP programs and functional modules
How long it takes to set up the SAP Business connector
Our experience shows that the setup of the communication between SAP and Productoo software usually takes 2-3 business days. This is enough to set up and validate the data transfers between both systems.
After the setup, the data is generated in the SAP system in the IDOC format and transferred to Productoo. Similarly, all updates are transferred back to SAP in the format of IDOC.
