TYPE OF ORGANIZATION (BANKING INDUSTRY) WHAT IS A BANK?
â€œA bank is a financial intermediary that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks are a fundamental component of the financial system, and are also active players in financial markets. The essential role of a bank is to connect those who have capital (such as investors or depositors), with those who seek capital (such as individuals wanting a loan, or businesses wanting to grow)â€?. Banking is generally a highly regulated industry, and government restrictions on financial activities by banks have varied over time and location. The current set of global standards is called Basel II. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning Non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a crossshareholding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bankassurance is
prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients. The most recent trend has been the advance of universal banks, which attempt to offer their customers the full spectrum of financial services under the one roof. The oldest bank still in existence is Monte deiPaschi di Siena, headquartered in Siena, Italy, which has been operating continuously since 1472. The name bank derives from the Italian word banco "desk/bench", used during the Renaissanceby Jewish Florentine bankers, who used to make their transactions above a desk covered by a green tablecloth. However, there are traces of banking activity even in times ancient , which indicates that the word 'bank' might not necessarily come from the word 'banco'.
Banking (Standard activities)
Banks act as payment agents by conducting checking or current accounts for customers, paying chequesdrawn by customers on the bank, and collecting chequesdeposited to customers' current accounts. Banks also enable customer payments via other payment methods such as telegraphic transfer, EFTPOS,and ATM. Banks borrow money by accepting funds deposited on current accounts, by accepting term deposits, and by issuing debt securities such as banknotes and bonds. Banks lend money by making advancesto customers on current accounts, by making instalment loans, and by investing in marketable debt securities and other forms of money lending.
Banks provide almost all payment services, and a bank account is considered indispensable by most businesses,individuals and governments. Non-banks that provide payment services such as remittance companies are not normally considered an adequate substitute for having a bank account. Banks borrow most funds from households and non-financial businesses,and lend most funds to households and non-financial businesses,but non-bank lenders provide a significant and in many casesadequate substitute for bank loans, and money market funds, cash management trusts and other non-bank financial institutions in many casesprovide an adequate substitute to banks for lending savings to.

INTRODUCTION TO CRM
CRM(customer relationship management) is an information industry term for methodologies, software, and usually Internet capabilities that help an enterprise manage customer relationships in an organized way. For example, an enterprise might build a databaseabout its customers that described relationships in sufficient detail so that management, salespeople, people providing service, and perhaps the customer directly could access information, match customer needs with product plans and offerings, remind
customers of service requirements, know what other products a customer had purchased, and so forth.
The essenceof the information technology revolution and, in particular, the World Wide Web is the opportunity to build better relationships with customers than has been previously possible in the offline world. By combining the abilities to respond directly to customer requests and to provide the customer with a highly interactive, customized experience, companies have a greater ability today to establish, nurture, and sustain longterm customer relationships than ever before. The ultimate goal is to transform these relationships into greater profitability by increasing repeat purchase rates and reducing customer acquisition costs. Indeed, this revolution in customer relationship management or CRM.1as it is called, has been referred to as the new â€œmantraâ€? of marketing.2Companies like Siebel, E.piphany, Oracle, Broadvision, Net Perceptions, Kana and others have filled this CRMspacewith products that do everything from track customer behaviour on the Web to predicting their future moves to sending direct email communications. This has created a worldwide market for CRMproducts and services of $34 billion in 1999 and which is forecasted by IDCto grow to $125 billion by 2004.3The need to better understand customer behaviour and focus on those customers who can deliver long-term profits has changed how marketers view the world.
Traditionally, marketers have been trained to acquire customers, either new ones who have not bought the product category before or those who are currently competitorsâ€™ customers. This has required heavy dosesof mass
advertising and price-oriented promotions to customers and channel members. Today, the tone of the conversation has changed from customer acquisition to retention. This requires a different mindset and a 3 different and new set of tools. A good thought experiment for an executive audience is to ask them how much they spend and/or focus on acquisition versus retention activities.
While it is difficult to perfectly distinguish the two activities from each other, the answer is usually that acquisition dominates retention.
According to one industry view, CRMconsists of:
ďƒ˜ Helping an enterprise to enable its marketing departments to identify
and target their best customers, manage marketing campaigns with clear goals and objectives, and generate quality leads for the sales team. ďƒ˜ Assisting the organization to improve telesales, account, and sales
management by optimizing information shared by multiple employees, and streamlining existing processes(for example, taking orders using mobile devices) ďƒ˜ Allowing the formation of individualized relationships with customers,
with the aim of improving customer satisfaction and maximizing
profits; identifying the most profitable customers and providing them the highest level of service. ďƒ˜ Providing employeeswith the information and processesnecessary to
know their customers, understand their needs, and effectively build relationships between the company, its customer base, and distribution partners. CRM--Customer Relationship Management--has entered the mainstream. Despite the uncertainty of the economy, CRMis being thrust into corporate budgets and talked about as a critical initiative by hundreds of Fortune 1,000and tens of thousands of other companies. It has gone from being an important edge in the businessworld to a necessary tool for survival. The notion of the customer as king or queen is once again the rule. How you treat this is a mission-critical businessissue.
But, what is CRMand how does it change the way companies do business?The changesin the world have been so dynamic and so dramatic that the path is not necessarily all that obvious. How CRMimpacts that businesspath is a continuing source of debate in the world of corporate management.
Managing relationships with customers has become a critical organizational competency. Get winning strategies for acquiring and retaining customers by leveraging the latest advanced technologies. This course will teach you how to select the right tools for your business-- so it can grow today--and on into the future. Lagging means lost customers, which means
damage to the bottom line. But how do you not lag when customers are moving lightning fast to demand constant changesin the speed to complete their transactions? How do you keep your customers when the move to another company is nothing more than a mouse click and a minute away?
CRMis the answer. Customer Relationship Management, a strategy that leveragesvery advanced technologies is the way to cut to the 21st Century businesschase.
