ERP (PGI) CRM integration

The companies often resort to two systems for helping business processes to function effectively - a customer relationship management (CRM) and a [Enterprise Resource Planning] system (ERP). OnyxPro, El Motakamel offer : Software as a Service (SaaS) CRM and ERP for the companies of all sizes.
 
A CRM system processes frontend data - the management of the customer data through the interactions with marketing and the service dedicated to the customers. That helps the companies to improve their position with reference to the customers’ requirements, to manage the relations and the sales pipelines, UpSells and the products of additional sale.
 
A ERP system manages the critical background information - the total management of the information related to the customers which are necessary once the orders were placed. That can include the purchase history, the invoicing and the delivery details, countable information, financial data, and the details of the supply chain management.
 
The two systems of customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning offer independently substantial advantages to the companies. Employing a powerful integration system allows for connectivity between the two systems, and offers even more advantages for the companies.
 
 
The challenge of ERP CRM integration: 
In general, the systems ERP and CRM tend to remain separated and their architectures contrasted, so it is difficult to rationalize the integration. Those who try to create a transparent connectivity between the two systems often opt for the process of point-to-point integration. This method is fragile, costly and difficult to maintain. With point-to-point connections, the developer needs, for managing connectivity, to implement changes. Moreover, the changes influence the whole system, and make way for errors. These point-to-point integrations provide a short-term solution, but become too complicated as the companies develop.
