As an SAP employee, how do I pay for a hotel room for a customer?
There are two (2) ways to pay for a customer’s hotel room for SAPPHIRE NOW.  In both cases, the customer must first register for the conference and obtain the six-digit confirmation code.

Option 1
  • Customer completes conference registration and then books hotel reservation through the hotel booking site using his or her own credit card.
  • Customer sends the hotel confirmation e-mail to SAP employee, and SAP employee contacts the housing team for SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference at + 1 (877) 690-9212 to replace customer’s credit card with employee's own.
  • A deposit of one night’s room and tax will be billed to the credit card on file shortly after Friday, May 9, 2014.
  • SAP employee must also request from the housing team a credit card authorization form of the confirmed hotel, and SAP employee will need to complete and fax this form directly to the hotel for payment for the remaining nights (room, tax, and incidentals if necessary).

Option 2
  • Customer completes conference registration but does not enter the hotel booking site and sends SAP employee the six-digit conference registration number.
  • SAP employee contacts the housing team for SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference at +1 (877) 690-9212 to make a hotel reservation with the employee credit card.
  • A deposit of one night’s room and tax will be billed to the credit card on file shortly after Friday, May 9, 2014.

Please note that the registration confirmation number will need to be provided to complete a hotel reservation.

If a credit card form is not properly filled out prior to the guest’s arrival, the guest will be responsible for the remaining room nights on the reservation. It is the responsibility of the SAP employee to follow up with the hotel directly to ensure all procedures have been followed for the customer.

For the two options above, the SAP employee reconciles billing to their SAP internal cost center to be charged after the event.
