Maximum support for your customers and team: improving the service experience with SAP service solutions

Offering an outstanding service over an extremely wide variety of channels and at all times is how you exceed your customers’ expectations. Before, during and after the purchase. With SAP applications for optimized service, such as SAP Service Cloud as part of the SAP Customer Experience Suite and SAP Field Service Management, you can handle all customer service processes digitally and efficiently – yet still in a customer-focused manner. Both sides benefit from this approach.

Companies must meet these requirements in order to retain their customers and remain competitive. We explain how this works!

From quick information to on-site service – the tools and functionalities for the perfect service experience in detail

Which SAP CRM applications in detail lead to the perfect customer experience, and how can end-to-end processes be created in service? Where exactly do you benefit? Here’s a brief overview:

SAP Service Cloud for customer support

SAP Service Cloud

Your customer has a question and expects you to provide direct support over their preferred channel. If the question cannot be answered using the self-service portal, the Support Team in Customer Service takes over.

With SAP Service Cloud, your employees have a tool that provides them with quick, easy and smart support at their disposal, allowing them to focus on providing solutions. You get access to the knowledge databases and provide answers in a system-supported manner, not to mention suggestions for sensible measures.

Self-service portal

Help your customers to help themselves! Whether it’s talking to a virtual service agent, chatting live using a chat bot, reading extensive information about products and functionalities in a knowledge database, or exchanging experiences in an online community, there are many ways of enabling your customers to solve their problems on their own

Smart ticket management

A ticket system can be used to automatically analyze requests over the telephone, by email and using other applications and forward them to the appropriate service employee. The highlight of this solution is the fact that the software has the ability to learn and thus enables a high solution rate.

Agent desktop console and omnichannel service

Service Cloud provides a customer engagement center for mapping seamless service over all service channels (such as email, social media, app, telephone, etc.). A modern agent desktop helps with handling calls thanks to key call center features, such as integrated computer telephony with caller routing.

SAP Field Service Management (SAP FSM)

When it comes to machine maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting, the field service is the preferred option nowadays. To make sure it is successful, smart, mobile and consistent, we have specialized in consulting for the entire service process chain. In this respect, we understand both the process level and the implementation and integration of systems based on SAP solutions.

Integrated service processing in SAP ERP or S/4HANA

The technician’s deployment-related planning and feedback is automatically posted in the system. Seamless integration in SAP S/4HANA enables direct and automatic data updates. Both consumption and times are recorded, chargeable items are invoiced, required parts are selected from parts lists and are pre-shipped and stocked for the warehouse, and cost estimates are submitted. Not only does this save time; it also reduces susceptibility to errors.

Enhanced efficiency in the field service

On-site scheduling must be handled efficiently to minimize downtimes and ensure excellent service. The SAP Field Service Management solution helps you by optimally scheduling your resources. It also helps your service technician with processing the deployment. SAP FSM makes all the necessary information available and provides support by means of managed checklists.

Real-time key performance indicators

Individual analyses and reports enable you to identify problems at an early stage and make the right decisions. SAP FSM also allows you to always keep an eye on the field service’s key performance indicators and come up with appropriate tasks. This enables you to comply with your service level agreements (SLAs) at all times and guarantee customer satisfaction.

SAP Intelligent Asset Management

SAP Intelligent Asset Management provides additional optimization, so that everyone involved in the process can view all the current information about a machine or system at the same time. This means that better conclusions can be drawn about the parts required, for example.

Predictive maintenance can also be organized in this way, since the system uses machine learning to identify the machine’s patterns and indicate when something isn’t running smoothly. This, in turn, reduces the number of preventive maintenance operations. Our subsidiary, Data One, will assist you with all the topics related to SAP Intelligent Asset Management.

SAP S/4HANA Service

 SAP S/4HANA Service – a core solution – is the ideal basis for back-office service processes. It supports you with standard functions such as service contracts, subscription deals and solution portfolios. Integrate service functions in other SAP cloud solutions or on-prem SAP enterprise solutions to enable an end-to-end service experience for your customer – from problem reporting to problem solving.
