Front Office Application

Definition - What does Front Office Application mean?

A front office application is a software application designed to interact directly with the customer to provide a suite of services.

Techopedia explains Front Office Application

Front office applications are primarily designed to automate most or all customer-oriented business processes. Generally, front office applications are part of customer relationship management (CRM), and provide a graphical interface for the end user or customer to request some available service. Front office applications may provide services, such as ordering a new product, order status, usage tracking for metered services and live customer support.

A front office application is interconnected with the back-end enterprise resource planning (ERP) or related applications, which provide real-time data about product inventory and records of each transaction processed on the front end.
