The hidden reality in the SaaS community: It's not the software, but the service that differentiates cloud providers in building quality customer relationships. So while many providers spend their time and resources improving the feature functionality of their software, their customers are focusing on expectations of the consistent quality of service delivery they've come to expect from traditional providers.

In this slideshow, SAP's head of HR Line of Business Mike Ettling shows how SaaS companies can make the "service" side of business the hero of their customer relationships, gaining customer loyalty and improving the bottom line.
