"The best way to predict the future is to create it together with your suppliers." - Abraham Lincoln

With SAP Enterprise Service Management, your service agents have customer, supplier, and employee information at their fingertips. Using the collaboration tools, knowledge base, machine learning services, and connection to back end systems, you can quickly address customer, supplier, and employee issues.

SAP Enterprise Service Management enables your organization to run service processes efficiently through a new case management framework with a flow builder and runtime engine.

The solution automates email communication through automatic email creation, categorization, prioritization, and routing to the right agent. Support your employees with an omni-channel experience on a modern agent desktop. Each synchronous or asynchronous communication item appears in a dedicated area in the agent desktop. This area provides the main functions that the agent needs to interact with employees. Native integration with back end systems enables easy access to financial and employee data.


    • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central for Employee Master Data
    • SAP S/4 HANA, SAP S/4 HANA Cloud and SAP ERP for Customer, Supplier and Employee Master Data
    • SAP S/4 HANA Cloud to process finance documents such as Invoices and Payment Advices

Features Available

I'll briefly go over a few of the features accessible in SAP Enterprise Service Management.

Agent Desktop



Supplier Search

Employee Search

Automatically identifies the supplier or employee for the incoming interaction.

Communication Channels

Communication channels enable customer service communication across multiple contact channels such as: phone, email, and chat. The service process begins with incoming complaints, queries, or requests from these sources.

Communication channel integration is enabled by third-party communication system providers.

Supplier Hub

Employee Hub

Supplier hub and employee hub provide a place to access and enter information from real-time interactions.

Upon accepting an incoming call or chat request, the hub opens automatically. If the interaction is from a known supplier or employee, the hub loads the relevant customer or contact information. The solution captures details of the interaction in the timeline.

The timeline can show phone call, email, chat interactions, and other touch points with the supplier or employee.

The Objects tab in supplier/employee hub shows business objects in your solution related to the current supplier or employee.
