SAP S/4HANA Service – increasing customer satisfaction
Meaningful master data serves as a basis for functioning service processes. In SAP S/4HANA Service, this data includes information such as customer master data, ticket or sales histories, service contracts as well as purchased and installed products. Using this data, the service employee is able to provide information at any time and deal with service requests efficiently.
S/4HANA Service assists the service agent in their daily work by means of system-guided processes. Customer requests are dealt with quickly and correctly. Moreover, the system provides potential service or product packages the service employee can offer. This increases customer satisfaction and retention. The service agent experience is improved as well.
SAP S/4HANA Service can be used to optimally manage one-time and recurring repair orders. Here, physical and digital products can be combined with service offers. Repairs are planned and executed by accessing service master data amended by material, HR and logistics data. For this purpose, for instance, the required spare parts or tools are planned for the repair order and provided for the service employee. Finally, the billing processes are triggered automatically in order to relieve the service employee.
