We use a few important principles for our integrations, including SAP Business One Integration with PrestaShop.
We provide a two-way connection between two different systems, including both SAP Business One and PrestaShop. This is one of the fundamental features of our work, which defines the integration process. We offer high-quality import and export profiles to meet even the highest quality requirements for integration. Moreover, you do not need to use both platforms simultaneously because the import and export profiles are independent.
With our built-in Scheduler, you can simplify and automate SAP Business One Integration with PrestaShop integration. We allow you to set specific update schedules for import and export processes. For example, you need to transfer order data to SAP B1 weekly:
- Go to your export profile and choose weekly updates.
- Choose the exact time of the transfer.
- To provide SAP Business One with more information before the scheduled one, you can use an asynchronous method that you can launch in the profile.
- Then you need to set the frequency of updates to your import profile.
We simplify the process of integrating one system with another using mapping. Also, our products will give you the integration of information from one system to another, taking into account all the parameters that require the system. It is important to match third-party attributes to the requirements of the receiving environment because the transfer of information should always be edited according to the standards of the accepting platform. Together with the Firebear team, you get the mapping grid that appears in every import and export profile. You get the ability to create a mapping scheme that will fit any rules and requirements of the platform.
Also, we support multiple connection standards, which gives you more integration options. We provide the ability to utilize data files of different types in all kinds of integration. You can rely on XML, CSX, XLSX, ODS, and JSON formats.
We provide support for Google Sheets transfers. Our tools make it possible to synchronize all data between any system and this platform. You get the functionality of Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, FTP/SFTP, and direct URL uploads. In addition, you can also create API-based connections.
