Become a Paid expert for PLATFORM TECHNOLOGIES – Ask an Expert Peer

In January 2018, SAP launched a large-scale pilot of the Ask an Expert Peer support channel for SuccessFactors solutions to test the on-demand expert workforce approach.  The feedback received from customers during the pilot was very positive and in this blog I would like to share the exciting news that we are expanding the offering with additional products and invite you to participate.

What is Ask an Expert Peer?

Ask an Expert Peer lets customers chat on their technical, product-related questions through one-on-one interactions with qualified and approved experts outside of SAP.  Ask an Expert Peer is best to deliver fast issue resolution for basic inquiries such as how-to-questions, and all low to medium priority cases.

Ask an Expert Peer is now an official and permanent channel of the Real-Time Support approach. To learn more, visit our FAQ. 

Benefits of the Ask an Expert Peer channel

For customers, Ask an Expert Peer is a great way to deliver fast issue resolution for basic inquiries, such as usability or how-to questions.  This on-demand expert network comes with many advantages to the business, enhancing customer experience, reducing response times, and improving business continuity. To learn more, watch the Webinar. 

Why You Should Apply

If you are a product expert, Ask an Expert Peer offers significant benefits. Being part of this support channel experience is a great way to connect with your peers and share your knowledge. In addition to the opportunity to build reputation as an expert outside of your own organization, receive compensation for your accepted answers.

Your active participation and contribution on SAP Community is great value to SAP and is highly appreciated. As an active community member, you have the skills and knowledge needed to deliver excellent customer service. The participation in the Ask an Expert Peer program might be another way in supporting customers and sharing your great knowledge.  Does it sound interesting to you?
