Integrate SAP Business One with WordPress

WordPress is one of the most popular sites used by small businesses and the general public. Many small businesses use WordPress to present their catalogues online to potential customers, and it is here that we can help by integrating the ERP system with the WordPress catalogue.

To perform the integration, we would use Orbis TaskCentre. TaskCentre is particularly good at integrating unrelated systems and databases, thus saving manpower while also increasing efficiency and accuracy.

Integration with WordPress

Step One

Initially we place User Defined Fields on the Item Master Data on SAP B1 to hold extra details for upload, image paths and Yes/No toggles to determine whether to post. If the toggle is set to "Yes", we would upload the details.

Step Two

In step two we would place a trigger on the SAP B1 database using the TaskCentre SAP Business One Agent tool. This will trigger on Add or Update. We immediately check the status of the Yes/No toggle. If it is Yes, we gather the information required for the catalogue.

Step Three

In this step we build the upload scripts and determine the position of the next article in WordPress. We identify and upload any associated images, remembering where we put them.

Step Four

This is the clever bit! Here we first identify what we are going to do. We will either be adding, updating or deleting the catalogue page. We then run the appropriate scripts to perform the action that is required.

Step Five

Finally we reset the toggle on the Item Master Data screen to "No"

The entire process is driven by SAP Business One, from SAP Business One. The user doesn't need to have access to the WordPress website as this is all handled from within TaskCentre.
