What has a 8 o’clock morning coffee to do with Fiori?

Like a good strong cup of coffee first thing in the morning, Fiori can help sales representative in mill industries manage their tasks – quickly, effectively and easily.

And – I had an 8:00am coffee with my colleague Claire – a sales rep that uses Fiori to get an immediate overview about critical sales orders – and how to deal with them.

What happens at 8 o’clock?

I meet my colleague Claire for a hot cup of coffee, very strong – with whole milk (Claire takes hers black). Claire is a sales rep and has some great new ideas and tools for how she gets through her daily tasks. She was so enthusiastic about how much she is able to accomplish that I wanted to hear more…..

Claire opened her Fiori launch pad and sees that there are 52 sales order issues. She wants to review and work on the issues immediately- she opens the app.

She selects one sales order which is overdue and which needs immediate attention. The Fiori app shows Claire all relevant information for solving the issue and helps her to take action.

She showed me how she systematically goes through the orders.

For some orders – she gets in touch with an internal contact in order to track the issues and resolve it.

In other cases the system supports her in solving the issue directly.

Step by step Claire goes forward and continues with the next most important order issues. 

I met her again at lunchtime and she told me that she had solved all the important order issues and was open that afternoon.  I took the opportunity to ask her to meet again that afternoon – to have her give me a deeper understanding of Fiori,  —AND a piece of cake, which really belongs with a coffee – at least for me.

Here are some details:
