  23. 23. Party vs. Account Within TCA model, the concept of “Customer” is separated into two layers: the Party layer and the Account layer CRM applications are referring to the Party layer when they refer to “Customer” ERP Applications, on the other hand, are referring to the Account layer, when they refer to “Customer” Confusion arises because CRM and ERP suites are both using the word “Customer” to refer to two different things ©2005 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc. NorCal OAUG Bringing People, Processes and Technologies together 23
  24. 24. Party Vs. Customer … Per TCA Best Practices, the word “Customer” is the combination of both the “Party layer” and the “Account layer”, where Party layer exists independent of any selling or buying relationship Customer Account layer exists in the context of a Party and only when a selling relationship exists ©2005 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc. NorCal OAUG Bringing People, Processes and Technologies together 24
  25. 25. Locations A geographic location Is a Party Site with one or more site uses Only one of the Party Sites can become an “Identifying Address” for the Party An Account Site in the context of an Account Examples [Each location resulting in one Party] New York location (HQ) of Echo Consulting services Chicago location (Branch) of Echo Consulting Services Detroit location (Division) of Echo Consulting Services ©2005 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc.
