What does SAP say about Influence?  I found this great quote from fellow ASUG volunteer Greg Capps’ ASUG TechED 2010 presentation:

“SAP values the customer feedback gained via the Influence Program. By working collaboratively with ASUG members to identify and address customer pain points, we can leverage the feedback and innovative ideas we receive to deliver:


  • Better product and service enhancements
  • Increased customer visibility into SAP’s Product Innovation Lifecycle
  • Higher customer satisfaction across all account groups
  • Improved customer advocacy programs globally

Simply put, the Influence process is one of our trusted tools for shaping the future of SAP products and services.”

                Director of Customer Advocacy
