SAP Product Support’s journey into the social world began in 2011. At that point in time, it was mainly motivated by one question: How can SAP Support contribute in the social world?
Currently, seven years later,SAP’s Social Media Product Support includes the following accounts:
- Twitter @SAPSupportHelp (Product Support)
- Twitter @SAPCloudSupport (SuccessFactors Support)
- WeChat (SAP DBS)
- Youtube (Playlist at DBS Youtube channel)
Let’s have a closer look at those channels.
Recognizing that our customers were active on social media, we started using Twitter for troubleshooting updates.
Our aim is to help customers easily find the answers and tools they need to be productive, and share relevant, prescriptive product information for their specific business needs.
On the other hand, we love the possibility to listen what our audience is saying and participate proactively in social media conversations.
- We share Support information: KBAs, Notes, Security and legal changes, Support Academy and OpenSap courses, Services, Wikis, Blogs…
- We timely notify about critical and trending issues.
- We provide best practices, expert tips and advice from SAP and peers.
- You don’t need to follow our accounts to get the information, having the possibility to share your feedback about any of the posts published.
