Dear Experts,
I am planning to develop a CRM type of applicatoin.
I need to your expertise on what are the things we can input into it.

This application is useful for top management to know the revenues generation and business they are doing. They have to know at one glance at what point they stand.

and it should track customers contacts and how much business they are giving and any referrals.

and to add on to the above list, I want to know whether I am missing anything or not.

This will be a web application.

I want suggestions from all of you, any extra points can be added which will satisfy my management.
I don't have any specs, so I am asking your inputs.

waiting for your suggestions.

Add the possibilty to do mailmerges, and letters, and mailings (email).   Your users will ask for that anyway after a while :-)

I have a demo of a CRM app called SimpleRM. That might just give you some cool ideas. If I can find it out, I will send you a few screenshots.

Make an OpenNTF project.  Actually, there is already one there, but I don't think the project ever really kicked off.

GWI software turned their commercial CRM into open source.  They had a web site but shut it down.  If you get in touch with them, they will probably still be willing to give it out.

It's not directly possible to create graphs (except using some html tricks, but those are only horizontal/vertical charts).
What you can do , is create graphs in Excel , and show those, or buy/find a Java applet that does charting.  Of course, using Crystal Reports or another 3rd party reporting tool is also possible.

cheers,

Tom
