SAP ECC 6.0 & iVend Retail Integration Landscape
iVend Retail is configured with SAP ECC 6.0 at the central location – typically the Head Office. The entire operation is connected to iVend Enterprise – the central Head Office component of iVend Retail. The store and restaurant locations connect to iVend Enterprise over an Internet connection, as the application is designed so that even if the Internet connectivity between the store and the Head Office is lost, the stores can carry on operations without pause. This happens because of the selective replication of data across all stores, which is carried out by iVend Enterprise.
