    Hello Sarah,

    As SAP is a name of a program, you have to use "has"


    Best regards,
    Dany

    Hi Dany,
    Thank you for your prompt response. If, in this context, SAP refers to a company and not a program, would you still use "has"?

    In any case, whether SAP is a company name or program, use "has".For singular noun, always use HAS

    I have to agree with Dany and babs, but I think I know where your question is coming from... I asked similar question. A company could be referred as 'they' or 'them', and that's probably why you thought it could be plural.

    I could be wrong... I'm just another guy studying English as second language.
