Customer Relations Management
Customer Relations Management is not an independent module, but the logical view of all customer and prospect related activities. Customer management functions are an integrated part of the business process. Therefore, there are (in contrast to traditional CRM systems) no batch or synchronization processes for the back-office functionality.
