Development of value added and value assessment
Holistic Customer Care
In this fast-paced time, when the metrics and requirements of the respective markets, target groups and technical developments often change, permanent adaptations of the systems are difficult to avoid. The need for support lies in the volatility of our age, based on the high speed of digitalisation.
The opportunities offered to us and our customers by these new technologies are still in their infancy. We expect a lot to happen in this area in the next few years. We're already showing where the journey is with our Built-in Support today. Support is integrated into the product via SAP CoPilot. Artificial intelligence ensures that the customer can talk to the system - keyword Conversational AI. In the background, the Digital Support Assistant uses the system context and other data to provide quick answers to technical customer questions. In the future, some questions will not even be asked, because the customer in the application already gets the necessary support and hints through his digital assistant to avoid possible problems. For SAP S4/HANA Cloud applications, we have been offering build-in support since this year's SAPPHIRE and are now expanding the range of services. We have already identified a number of scenarios where artificial intelligence can add significant value. Incident Solution Matching, a machine learning-based search for solutions, is already in operation within SAP and will soon be available to customers.
What problems our SAP Support helps
It is best to call one of our employees to discuss your initial situation. We can dramatically reduce the risk of compliance violations and support all programmes you have set up. This gives you the freedom to focus on the growth and innovation of your business.
We already offer AI- and Machine Learning-based support tools such as Automatic Translation to automatically translate SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles. Built-in support and the digital support assistant will also become an integral part for our users. Customers want seamless support no matter where and on which device, and no matter what "channel". The intelligent merging of all channels, including mobile devices and social media, will give customers multiple ways to access support. Our vision is to have omnichannel access to our support, and to continue to develop new tools and pioneering solutions in co-innovation with our customers. Support will become more proactive and identify critical situations at an early stage - support will be delivered to the customer, not vice versa. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will further improve and simplify the support experience for customers, making the answers both faster and better. Intelligent ALM tools will provide fully automatic performance. We are constantly on the ball - our customers can expect a lot of innovation in SAP support in the future.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many SAP support tasks much easier.
Due to the excellent technical expertise available in this stage, the possible causes of the disturbance are quickly found and a solution is reached.
For example, in November 2018, Salt Solutions was able to step in at short notice with the task of displaying special prices for Chinese customers in the system as part of the SAP introduction in China, so that they are automatically taken into account from the customer order to the invoicing - also for intercompany billing.
