Guided Buying

Connecting a cloud search engine to your own ERP system (e.g. SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4 Procurement Hub, SAP SRM with UI5, Oracle iPro, etc.) greatly improves usability, as goods and services from different purchasing channels can be ordered within one interface. This is also referred to as a hybrid solution with Guided Buying, in which the local SAP is coupled with a cloud. Such a solution promotes user guidance through the intelligent system, without having to involve the purchasing department in every ordering process. This not only relieves the purchasing department, but also increases employee satisfaction.

Apache SOLR

A high-performance search engine based on Apache SOLR is working in the background, tailored to the needs of our customers. The article data is indexed by the search engine and remains in the cloud. Due to this architecture and the use of compressed file formats, the Catalog Cloud provides users with considerable speed advantages: The performance of the system plays a significant role, especially in the integration of large web shops and marketplaces with several 100,000 or even millions of articles.

Connection of the Cloud Search Engine

Our catalogue search engine in the cloud (Cloud Search Engine) forms, in connection with a modern search interface (HTML5), the new shopping experience in SAP. The user quickly finds his way around because the presentation and handling are modelled after the familiar functionality of prominent web shops. Catalog articles as well as web forms can easily be placed in the shopping cart. The embedded integration into the SAP SRM or SAP S/4HANA system eliminates the need for a punch-out into the supplier’s catalog.

Other modules and purchasing solutions such as SAP MM, SAP PM, Oracle iProcurement, etc. can also be connected to the catalog system via the OCI4 interface.
