SAP C/4HANA: Deliver a Personal Customer Experience to Everyone

Digitization has changed the game dramatically for marketing, sales, commerce, and service. Gone are the days when companies could rely on a “one size fits all” model to get their message across, convince their audience, and gain loyal customers. That’s why traditional customer relationship management (CRM) is transforming, too.

A coherent, convincing, and truly personal customer experience is what sets apart digital leaders from digital laggards. But how do you become a customer-centric company?

Integrate every customer-facing process – with SAP C/4HANA. This suite of solutions unites the former commerce-focused SAP Hybris solutions with tailored software for marketing, sales, service, and a foundation to align all your customer data – compliant with the strictest data privacy and protection laws. Add to this the latest trends in machine learning and you have everything you need to create real-time engagement with every single customer.

An Integral Part of the SAP Strategy

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” What can we learn from Stephen Hawking’s words today? That in the digital age, a time of constant change, becoming an intelligent enterprise is the most important competitive factor.

An intelligent enterprise is based on instant, reliable insights derived from artificial intelligence and machine learning. And for SAP customers, the SAP C/4HANA suite plays a key role in this. In fact, customer experience is one of five strategic pillars of SAP’s future roadmap.

Cornerstone of the Intelligent Enterprise

If you’re looking for an end-to-end customer solution, you need a suite that can go the whole nine yards. SAP C/4HANA is designed to modernize the sales-only focus of legacy CRM solutions, which means the relationship doesn’t stop when the order is processed.

How Customer Centric is Your Company?

  • Can your employees from each customer-related line of business access up-to-date and comprehensive customer data?
  • Do you still rely on mass marketing or do you target an audience of one with personally relevant messages?
  • Can you analyze your sales performance in real time and react immediately?
  • Are buying experiences appealing and coherent across all channels?
  • Is your service able to not just solve problems, but actually turn dissatisfied customers into loyal ones?

If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, you should have a closer look at the SAP C/4HANA portfolio and our services.

What You Can Achieve with SAP C/4HANA

Gain a 360-Degree View of Every Customer

Everyone talks about putting their customers at the center of their business. Yet only a few really do – because customer centricity requires you to know just about everything on each and every customer. That’s where SAP C/4HANA comes into play: Bring together master data, buying history, individual needs and wishes, and even sentiments. You can then provide your teams in marketing, sales, service, and commerce with all the information they need to create an engaging customer experience.

Create and Analyze Individualized Marketing Campaigns

Based on dynamic customer profiles and supported by artificial intelligence, you can create segments and campaigns that fit perfectly to each individual. You can even optimize marketing campaigns while they run to adapt to your audiences’ reaction. Marketing no longer simply helps sales teams do their job, but contributes directly to new business.

Deliver the Right Solution in the Right Moment

It’s crucial for your sales team to quickly identify key decision makers and establish a complete understanding of customer objectives. SAP C/4HANA fully equips your sales team by breaking down silos of customer information in the back office and delivering this data to your team through their mobile devices. Empower your sales reps with the information they need to know which customers to contact, how to address their pain points, and how to nurture each opportunity to completion.

Become a B2B or B2C Omnichannel Business

No matter whether you’re in B2B or B2C, our customers today expect a consistent buying experience that matches the way they buy online in their personal life using a range of devices. You need to find cost-effective ways to seamlessly provide opportunities for them to make purchases at every stage of their journey, no matter how complex the business. With SAP C/4HANA you create a complete omnichannel sales experience, connecting digital and traditional sales channels end-to-end. You can integrate suppliers, distributors, and partners and manage multiple business models from one single platform.

Retain Customers with High-Quality Services

In the past, service has often been considered a necessary evil to comfort disappointed customers. At best, it was a way to bind customers through long-term maintenance contracts. Today, service should and can be much more. With SAP C/4HANA you not only accelerate service processes and improve the first-time fix rate, but turn service before, during, and after a purchase into an opportunity to engage customers; and sell additional products. To do that, your call-center service specialists have access to complete, contextual customer information – and to B2C or B2B omnichannel data, too. So they know exactly which additional products will perfectly suit their customer. Field service technicians also have all data available to help them complete their tasks faster – even while at the customers’ location.
