Sage X3 Integration
A modern and scalable platform is a foundational requirement for any B2B eCommerce system, but equally important is a well architected bi-directional integration to your ERP. The commercebuild platform duplicates the powerful and complex Sage X3 data and logic to the digital world to deliver a comprehensive end-to-end customer experience.
By fusing your Sage X3 system with commercebuild, we go beyond integration to maximize your ERP investment. With over 65 Sage X3 tables replicated, commercebuild is the industry standard for ERP to eCommerce integration. Sage X3 database tables are synchronized with commercebuild in real-time, keeping the data in the online environment exactly the same as in the back office.
Data replication between Sage X3 and commercebuild is enabled by powerful and secure database synchronization technology that leverages MS SQL and Oracle change tracking. At no time is data replicated directly from the Sage X3 database tables, and for security all data is encrypted throughout the entire synchronization process. This unique approach delivers best in class data synchronization in a very secure manner, while placing virtually no load on the production Sage X3 environment.

Sage X3 Pricing Logic
It’s business critical for a B2B eCommerce system to support the pricing logic of the back-office ERP. When a customer logs in they should be presented with exactly the same pricing that has been configured for them, such as currency, discount levels, quantity price breaks, contract price and sales site pricing.
The commercebuild platform deals with this very complex requirement in a unique and powerful way. Rather than relying on calls to the ERP to get a customer price, and the inherent security and performance risks with such an approach, commercebuild includes a pricing engine that mirrors the pricing engine of Sage X3 Therefore, all customer specific pricing required when a customer is browsing the web store is executed on the site with no need to connect to the ERP. This approach is significantly faster and far more secure than traditional methods of integrating a B2B eCommerce site with an ERP system.
Extensions to Sage X3 Pricing Logic Include
- Min and max order quantities
- Filter valid price lists for optimum performance
- Promotional discounts
- Elasticsearch price indexing for B2C sites for sorting, searching and usability
