Customer Testimonials

We have deployed SAP Fiori at Colgate and the


feedback from our first group of business users
has been very positive. They are excited about
the ease of use and simplicity of the app. We
worked very closely with SAP on the vision and
mission of SAP Fiori and we think the first
release of our collaboration looks great. We
believe SAP Fiori will help to provide consumergrade user experiences to our employees.

I am very excited to see such positive results


from SAPs UX Strategy in such a short time
frame. The SAP Fiori apps are as easy to use as
Facebook, Google or Amazon. This is exactly
what end users are looking for.
