While you can use In Mind Cloud Digital Sales Platform standalone, you can also integrate it with SAP ERP and leverage data mastered in SAP ERP. Customers can bring a variety of data points from SAP ERP into the MX. These data points include Materials, Material Classification data, Characteristics, Classes, Unit of Measures, Sales Texts, Material substitution data, Accounts etc.
The integration is built on a standard SAP BAPI for information exchange and supported on the SAP Cloud platform by Connectivity Service. More on this in the Integration Set Up section.
The integration is bidirectional. MX not only consumes data from ERP but also creates data in it. The creations include creating Sales Quote, Sales Orders. For made to order processes, MX also creates materials and its bill of material into ERP. In addition to this, the integration supports custom features and a few examples of this are: credit limit check, custom field selection, etc.
