An Enterprise Resource Planning System is a business management software that is used to collect and manage data that comprises of various organizational activities. A Customer Relationship Management system manages the company’s interaction with its clients, which involves organizing and automating various functionalities like sales, marketing, technical and customer care support. One cannot overlook the benefits of each of these solutions, but there is a negative to purchasing the two separately. Having both of them will duplicate every data entry, as a result of which there can be wastage of effort and there can be a lot of confusion too. What more, buying both the solutions means spending money twice. Instead of purchasing an ERP system and CRM solution as two stand alone products, the ideal solution is to integrate the two.
