For details on iVend – SAP ERP integration using PI server, please refer to SAP Retail integration scenarios with iVend Retail
There are five components that may be installed in an iVend implementation with SAP Business One as ERP.
1. Enterprise Server
The Enterprise Server is where enterprise information is entered and where settings are made that affect all stores in the system. The Enterprise Server is where data from all stores is consolidated.
2. Store Server
The Store Server is where information is entered about each store and where settings are made affecting the behavior and limitations of each user and each Point of Sale register. Master record information is synchronized to and from the Enterprise Server at this server. This primarily install database for the store and the replication service on the machine.
3. Point of Sale
Each register has a point of sale client installed through which all forms of sales transactions are conducted.
4. SAP Business One Integration Service
SAP Business One Integration Service provides the setting and means to communicate data to and from the Enterprise Server and to monitor that activity.
5. Management Console
Management console connects to either Enterprise Server or Store Server for proving the User Interface for the data store on these servers. Based on the database server it is connected to, from Management Console settings for the Enterprise or Store can be defined. Inventory transactions including inventory movement, pricing and discounts can be managed from this User Interface.
iVend Retail and SAP Business One are normally configured at a central location, typically the Head Office. Retailers prefer to configure these applications on 2 separate servers with the iVend Retail server having a static IP (one that can be searched on the Internet). This is done so that the store servers are able to ‘locate’ the central iVend Retail server, called iVend Enterprise, for the purposes of integration and replication.
