Bayinet B2B Portal
The Bayinet B2B portal used by Penta was developed by Renova. All the features essential to Bayinet, one of Turkey's largest dealer networks, were developed to be 100% integrated with SAP.
Some of the features of the B2B portal are as follows:
100% integration to SAP
From order taking to stock control, product information and current accounts, all basic components work 100% integrated with SAP.
Apart from the order itself, you can track on which date, with which payment method and with how much payment the order was made. After a certain number of orders, the opportunity to make whole payments on certain periods comes up.
Various methods of payment
Payment by Credit Card, 3D payment, EFT and check are accepted.
The module where products are listed, searches are made etc. In addition, products come automatically from SAP with no need for descriptions. Manual product update is possible.
High volume traffic is easily compensated thanks to the advanced cache mechanism. In addition, when the number of connections to ERP decreases, the need for sources on the ERP side also decreases.
Order tracking module
You can reach past order lists and their details. You can also see the preparation status of pending orders.
Automatically reflect the campaign price
If the products added to the basket are included in a campaign, the rules of the campaign are automatically applied even if the customer is unaware of the fact. This way, damages arising from human error are prevented and dealer satisfaction is increased.
Where is my cargo?
If the order has been dispatched, the precise location of the cargo vehicle can be tracked instantaneously.
Working with open accounts
In addition to payment methods like credit card, EFT etc. an open account purchase can be made, to be paid later on in whole.
Payment by check
Dealers can see the list of their checks and control their accepted/rejected status. In addition, portal managers can see the checks dealers input and put them into process.
Payment history, current account information, turnover and invoice information
It works in a way that the list of past payments, current account information, turnover and invoice information all come from the ERP system.
Feedback, criticism, suggestion form

Bank account management
For possible paybacks to dealers, banking account numbers are recorded here. The portal owner can similarly record his/her banking number here. These numbers are displayed to the dealers in an appropriate space.
You can deliver documents like brochures, guides, promotional videos etc. about your products to your dealers from this field. By informing them about their features, you can help them get more out of your products.

You can enter the brands for each product in your product range into the system and allow your dealers to shop by choosing brands. It will be possible to reach sales numbers based on brands on the SAP side.
Manual triggering in product integration
By entering the product code you can update that product on the ERP side. For example when product information changes on the SAP side, you can direct it onto the portal instantly without having to wait for the synchronization time.
You can list your products not only according to name but in the order your dealers are used to. This way you will have increased the speed your dealers reach products up a notch.
Displaying products with missing content

Authorized technical service management
In possible malfunctions in your products, it is important for your dealers to be able to reach authorized service center contact information easily. It is important for this list to be updated easily and quickly. The system has the necessary features for this.
Warranty period inquiry
Your dealers can control online whether the warranty periods of the products they have purchased from you are up or not. This way, logistics costs like sending a product with no warranty to the technical service and then back again are avoided. In addition, it increases satisfaction to let your dealers know that the warranties on products that are no longer available are still good.
Defective product tracking
You can reach information about the situation of products sent in for repair and the conclusion about the product online. At the same time this module also makes it easier for the customers of the dealer to track the whereabouts of their products.
When there is a return for any reason, dealers can load them onto the system using this module. This way, it is harder for return requests to be missed by portal managers.
Foreign exchange rate integration
The exchange rates of the currencies (Euro, Dollar) accepted by the portal are updated daily to the system from the Central Bank automatically without need for manual intervention. Dealers can see the rate of the relevant currency on the portal screen.
In compliance with the law regarding a “Notification Form for the Purchase of Goods and Services (Form BA)” be filled upon purchase of goods or services that exceed a certain amount; and a “Notification Form for the Sale of Goods and Services (Form BS)” be filled upon sale of goods or services that exceed a certain amount published in the Official Gazette number 27483.
Dealers not familiar with the portal can use the site map to easily navigate to the desired section.
Instant integrated stock with SAP
Stock information is instantaneously checked over SAP for product sales. This way a product not in stock cannot be accidently sold. The portal does not keep stock.
Current account balance aging
Overdue payment can be postponed and account balance can be aged over the system.
The product comparison feature will be useful for dealers who have a hard time choosing between products that are similar. This way you will be able to show products’ better features over each other and help them make the best choice.
Defining dealer employees as users
Dealers can form and authorize separate user accounts for their employees. This way, they can refrain from unsecure methods like sharing the admin password. Dealers will also be able to track what each user does on the system separately.
Choice of warehouse for the product to be purchased
Dealers can choose among the warehouses most suitable to them where the product is in stock, for example the one closest to them. This way, the product can be delivered faster to the store.
If certain products in the order are not in stock, the ones present can be delivered beforehand and the rest later.
Flexible delivery address option
