Founded in 1998 by veteran laser and optical engineers, Cutera is a leading provider of laser and energy-based aesthetics and dermatology solutions for practitioners worldwide. They offer a wide range of industry-leading aesthetic solutions, from hair removal and body sculpting to women’s wellness.
The Challenges of Cutera
When Cutera decided to modernize their IT, they opted for SAP S/4HANA as the ERP and Salesforce for their sales & service processes. They were in the process of migrating from an older ERP system to SAP S/4HANA and implementing Salesforce Field Service and CPQ when they realized that they needed a proper solution to rapidly integrate data and processes between Salesforce and SAP. With moving targets on all sides, building integrations from scratch to support the dynamic business processes was a nearly insurmountable challenge.
The Solution by Vigience Overcast
Thanks to pre-built Salesforce add-ons, the flexibility and the point-and-click ease of Vigience Overcast, Cutera has tied the various Salesforce products and SAP S/4HANA together into seamless process flows, spanning Quote-to-Cash, Field Service and Inventory Management processes. Quotes are configured and priced in Salesforce CPQ and sent to SAP via Overcast for fulfillment. Subscriptions and service contracts as well as work orders and trunk-stock inventory are also tightly integrated with SAP.
Cutera business users and field service technicians have integrated access to all the information required to perform their daily tasks without duplicate entry or system switching, and Vigience Overcast ensures that the appropriate data is available in the right system at the right time.
Cutera is also able to innovate their business processes to adapt to changing needs without massive rework or overhauls of the Vigience Overcast integrations.

Overcast and Vigience: The Perfect Solution for Integrating Salesforce and SAP ECC 6.0
We are a privately owned high-tech manufacturer of extrusion lines based in Austria. After evaluating the market for solutions that allow us to integrate our Salesforce org with our on-premise SAP ECC 6.0, we selected Overcast because of its pre-build integrations and UI components that cover all of our requirements. With Vigience’s metadata-driven tools that require no coding, we were quickly able to configure all required functionality.
Within just two months from project start to go-live, we integrated master data for customers, suppliers, and assets, as well as transactional data for quotes and sales orders (including header and items), historical offers, and invoices. .. more
