  • Hi Nicole,

    Would like to propose solution on SAP CRM solution with Web Applications, Mobile, SMS, IVR and integration with existing single instance SAP ECC RE-FX & IS-U solution. As understood, SAP UCES (utilities self-service specific solution) is not recommendable for new implementation as SAP MCF have very much improved functionalities for customer self-service solution for Utilities and Public Sector industry.

    -Can we suggest SAP MCF for Real Estates industry which would covers Web Applications, Mobile, SMS, IVR etc. Real Estate functionalities If no, what would be your customer self-service solution for Real Estate.

    -How easy to integrate SAP BCM with SAP MCF.

    -Can we recommend SAP MCF in case customer already have SAP UCES license but not using it.

    -What would be your best cost effective CTI solution approach for Real Estate and Utilities business. (i.e. by using SAP BCM, SAP MCF or others)



    • Hi Sanju,

      Thank you for your interest in MCF.

      -SAP MCF is a solution tailored for Utilities Industries and does not have any content for Retail industry

      -Sure, UCES while being maintained, is not recommended by us. We recommend the customer to instead go for SAP MCF.

      -MCF , while can be integrated with CTI solutions, is not a replacement for a CTI solution. For Utilities, SAP CRM Interaction Center in combination with SAP BCM would be the recommended approach.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers, Wasim

    • Hi Sanju,

      I am afraid that’s not true. C4C like on-premise CRM has generic capabilities around sales, service and marketing that are applicable for all industries.

      In addition, there are industry specific C4C packages available for different industries. I can’t advise about Real Estate but for Utilities we do have such a package ( now already in third release) that manages the B2B sales process in the Utilities industry.

      Check out the blog from our colleague Steen on this:

      Cloud for Customer (C4C) with Utility specific objects and attributes

      Cheers, Wasim
