Sales on SAP ECC
After receiving the receipt from the external source, the data is converted into an internal POS Bridge Omni channel format. At this time, the configured process will decide what to do. Two main receipt types are taken into account:
Receipts without customer identification
Here the customer is not identified with specific information. By using a specific order type or an associated standard customer, it is possible to control the complete booking process.
Receipts with customer identification
Here the customer is identified with either his or her's customer number, or the customer is new. If the customer is new, it is possible to configure the POS Bridge in such way that the customer will be created before the order is booked, or by using web services to create the customer before the order is processed.
It is recommend to use the web service interface to create customers to simplify the processing of receipts.
A gift certificate is identified as a SAP product without any logistic data. The gift certificate is posted within the SAP FI module under the corresponding profit/cost center.
Do i need financial split?
The POS Bridge can be configured to split FI bookings from the order. The reason for this is to support the wish of seeing all customer related bookings within the SAP FI module. If a registered customer is buying a product and paying right away, the SAP invoice will not post any data on the customer in FI. This is not a problem, but if all transactions should go through the customer account the split must be activated.
The sales process on SAP ECC consisting of various components are all delivered by the POS Bridge.
As part of the sales process the external source format is converted into the POS Bridge omni channel format. The last part of the process is to again convert the POS Bridge omni channel format into SAP format for the final posting within the SAP standard environment.
Each process has it's own questionaire as an initial document to initialte the configuration of the process.
