Another option for exploring the SAP S/4HANA Utilities trial are the processes around the customer service agent in the Customer Engagement solution:

The SAP S/4HANA for Customer Engagement is a simplified version of SAP CRM embedded into SAP S/4HANA Utilities. Unlike SAP CRM 7, it uses a harmonized data model within the SAP S/4HANA database scheme, which means that no middleware is required to replicate data, resulting in a simplified system landscape that you can run at a lower total cost of ownership. Within this trial you can explore the rich functionality tailored to the utilities industry within SAP S/4HANA Utilities for Customer Engagement, for example:

  • Identification – powerful searches for both business and technical master data

  • Configurable and extensible data environments – providing a 360° view and all details for both a specific business partner and for a specific premise

  • Fast Move-In (for regulated markets) – creating a contract for a new business partner and an existing premise on one single screen
