CRM is defined as aligning business strategy, corporate culture and organization, customer information, and supporting information technology so that all customer interactions promote a mutually beneficial relationship between each customer and the enterprise. Primarily, customer relationship management is a business strategy, but it is a business strategy enabled by advances in technology. Widespread implementation of customer information, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, sales force automation, and integrated point-of-sale systems have made customer information readily available in large volumes. Reduced costs and higher levels of performance for database management platforms enable us to gain access to this customer information and gain new insights into our customers and their behavior through a variety of analysis methods.

Coming to CRM it is all about maintaining the relationship with a customer. It is supposed to enhance the profit of the company or organization since the ultimate goal of any company is profit. Therefore CRM is one step ahead for their goal achievements. Whereas SAP R/3 is a 3 tier based on client or server based application. One layer is presentation layer i.e Client which interfaces with the end user. Second layer is application layer for all business-specific requirements i.e program, and third is database which contains all information and records about the system, including transactional and configuration data. SAP R/3 has been developed in its own language called ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming).

The more useful way to think about CRM is as a process that will help bring together lots of pieces of information about customers, sales, marketing effectiveness, responsiveness and market trends.

Some vendors even claim their CRM "solutions" can be installed and working in less than a week. Packages like those are not very helpful in the long run because they don't provide the cross-divisional and holistic customer view needed. The time it takes to put together a wellconceived CRM project depends on the complexity of the project and its components 9. Can CRM and ITS server maintained in one system?

Action Profile is a Post Processing Frame work (PPF) which gives some output (like as smart form, fax, document) on given conditions.

  12. 12. 15. What is the Use of R/3 condition in CRM? We are trying to replicate SAP R/3 pricing conditions to CRM. Initial download of pricing customizing has been done. R/3 pricing conditions are displayed in CRM customizing well (pricing, rebates and free goods). Though when I go in customizing (in CRM) to use these R/3 conditions in condition maintenance under “marketing planning and campaign management”, I can see my rebates conditions, the free goods conditions but not the other conditions applying directly in the sales order. I have checked the configuration for the conditions not shown. They are categorized in: Application = CRM; Usage ‘PR’ for pricing; Source R/3. Conditions created in R/3 and replicated to CRM can only be maintained in R/3. If your middleware is set properly, any changes (VK11, VK12) will replicate to CRM. - 7 - Only conditions created in CRM are maintained in CRM (most likely documents that do not replicate back to R/3, if that scenario exists for you).
