back office application


Also found in: Dictionary, Financial.

back office application

Software that does not interact directly with the customer. It provides functionality for internal operations such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), inventory control, manufacturing and all of the supply chain activities associated with procuring goods, services and raw materials. If an ERP system includes order entry and customer service capabilities, that system would bridge both back office and front office. Contrast with front office application.
