SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today marks a further milestone in its product road map for on-demand applications that quickly and easily add on to customers’ on-premise software installations. SAP partners ePages GmbH and HONICO eBusiness GmbH are launching a cloud-based e-commerce solution for small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) running the SAP® Business All-in-One solution.
The solution sets up an SME with an e-commerce site that is hosted in the cloud, with Web orders processed alongside traditional sales channels in the SAP back end. The on-demand webshop is developed by ePages GmbH, one of the world’s foremost providers of e-commerce cloud service platforms. Integration of the preconfigured online shop with SAP Business All-in-One is enabled by HONICO eBusiness GmbH, a specialist for SAP system management products.
The offer is available to SAP Business All-in-One customers in the U.S. as well as Western Europe in two versions. The base version, $539USD per month, supports up to 10,000 products in a maximum of 1,000 categories With the “flex” version, $949USD per month, customers can sell up to 200,000 products in up to 2.000 different categories.
“With the integration of our on-demand shops, we are making the entrance into professional e-commerce much easier for SAP Business All-in-One users – with straightforward monthly costs and little technical effort,” said Wilfried Beeck, CEO, ePages. “After the successful webshop integration of SAP Business One last year, we are now expanding our solution portfolio to include the integration to SAP Business All-in-One.”
Companies that run SAP Business All-in-One can order the new software packages ePages Base for SAP Business All-in-One or ePages Flex for SAP Business All-in-One online and either install it themselves or have a partner such as ePages do the set-up and configuration. A company manages the online shop via the user interface of SAP Business All-in-One.
The standard shop system currently supports up to 13 languages and provides functions such as the integration of marketplaces including Amazon and eBay, compatibility with common payment methods and diverse marketing tools. It helps customers to more efficiently shape communications with existing customers, win new customers and offer additional services.
