Use the latest currency conversion data in SAP Business One with Fixer.

Businesses that operate in multiple territories often need to convert currencies when carrying out their daily processes. In some industries, it’s not uncommon for small and mid-sized enterprises to convert currencies multiple times in a single process.

This can complicate processing for transactions that rely on historical exchange rate data. For example, if a customer paying a monthly subscription demands a refund for the last six months of payment, your team may need to calculate the refund retroactively based on the exchange rates in place at the time of each payment.

For years, enterprises have relied on lightweight solutions for current and historical exchange rates. Powerful, open-source API solutions like Fixer have become commonplace among multinational businesses that need to quickly and accurately calculate exchange rates using the latest available data.

1) Open the Configure Menu and Select ‘Create a Template’

Starting from your SAP Business One Integration Hub dashboard, select the Configure menu and click on Create a Template. The next screen will show you system resource information, including the total number of documents you have and how much memory is being used.

2) Select Fixer in the Template Screen

The template screen will show all of the APIs you can integrate into your instance of SAP Business One. The name for your template will be “MyFixerTemplate” by default, but you can change it.

3) Connect the API Using the Set Connectivity Configuration Settings

Simply insert your SAP Business One System ID and your Fixer credentials into the Set Connectivity menu and click Next to start the process of integrating Fixer into your administration console. Test the connection for both SAP and Fixer before deploying the API.

4) Click on Deploy Now

Once you start the deployment, the integration completes. You may now log into SAP Business One and verify the connection. As soon as you open the software, the DHL activation script will execute, prompting a restart of SAP Business One.
