Managing Customer Visits with SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer – Best of Both Worlds - Centralised Control with Full Support for Individuals
How do you take control of the visits your sales teams make to your customers, but give your people the freedom to use their individual skills and intuitions? How do you track which customers have been visited, and more importantly which haven’t? How do you train your new-comers, or ensure best practice is followed by your old-timers?

The Entertainer extends Transversal's technology into its contact centre (with a helping hand from De Villiers Walton)
For the last five years The Entertainer has delivered a high level of customer service via its website through Transversal’s Prescience Self-Service Adviser. With an expanding website offering and over 120 retail stores stocking thousands of products, and with Christmas coming, they recently recognized the need for agents in their contact centre to provide an equally high level of customer service. It was clear that their contact centre agents needed to find more accurate information faster through a single and consistent source of knowledge, so they have deployed Transversal's Prescience Contact-Centre Adviser.
With SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer Deal Finder, SAP has delivered a real gem of a tool that uses the predictive analytics capabilities of SAP Infinite Insight to identify those Leads that are most likely to convert into Opportunities.

When people talk about knowledge management integration for SAP Cloud for Customer, MindTouch is often one of the first products mentioned. In this blog I want to introduce you to an alternative and, in my opinion, better product that elevates itself above other knowledge management products through its ability to understand what people mean and not what they say, anticipate what knowledge they will need next and improve through continued use. This is much more than a search engine that can trawl through a repository of documents. The product is Transversal’s next-generation cognitive knowledge platform Prescience and at De Villiers Walton we’ve been so impressed by it that we’ve integrated it with SAP C4C.
Given that SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C) is still a relatively new product, it’s perhaps inevitable that I’m hearing as many groans of dissatisfaction from SAP C4C customers as screams of delight. So, what’s going on and how can we convert those groans into screams?

A couple of weeks ago, I taught a SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C) class to a group of 15 at SAP UK. The participant group size has consistently been in the 10 to 15 range across Europe for the last 12 months or so. While last year the attendee profile was exclusively SAP partners this year customers are making up 20% to 30% of the class size. This has been great to see because it not only means that SAP C4C is in the ascendency within the partner community it is also showing that early partner investment in the solution is translating into sales and projects.
Our SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C) integration for Transversal Knowledge demonstrates a number of very positive aspects of the SAP C4C solution.

It is also possible to enhance and extend SAP C4C using standard SAP development tools such as the SAP Cloud Application Studio and the SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
