Brief introduction to SAP customer reference recognition

Beneath the opportunity to act as official reference customer, there are further possibilities for appreciated customers to participate at the SAP customer reference recognition program and share written references as Business Transformation Study (BTS), Customer Reference Slide, Customer Quote, and Social Cards. Beyond that customers may participate at events or with videos, but this is not in scope of this blog.

Most of these written references are accessible at sap.com in the document section; however, quote slides are not added there.

Intention of the present blog

To both provide access to relevant quote slides of customers and to bundle relevant customer  reference information belonging to "Product Compliance for Discrete Industries" (SAP Product and REACH Compliance) this blog aims for.

This blog will be updated on a regular base.

SAP Product and REACH Compliance

Sustainability has a long tradition at SAP as you see already at the brief retrospection of compliance for articles and products with SAP:

  • Compliance for Products (CfP): somewhen around 2006 the first solution for compliance topics of customers in discrete industries was introduced as Compliance for Products (CfP).

  • SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0: while release 1.1 was for process industry purely, the release 2.0 combined in 2010 both process industry and discrete industries functionalities into SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0.

  • SAP EHSM Product Compliance: the successor product is known as "SAP EHSM Product Compliance" or "SAP Product Compliance for Discrete Industries" starting somewhen in 2013. However, since 2021 the official name of the solution is "SAP Product and REACH Compliance".

Customer Success Stories

Customer stories listed here do not make any claim to be complete related to SAP Product and REACH Compliance. There might be some outdated references dropped, there might be some references not in focus that were established by our partners.

The order of the customer reference information does neither point to any possible relevance nor on date of release; they appear in alphabetical order of the customer name.

Customer success stories at SAP are plugged off in general after three years, if there was no renewal process started. Means, in case one of these provided links to the stories does not work any longer, the story might be unplugged.
