Vertical Marketing System and Oracle CRM

A vertical marketing system (VMS) is one in which the main members of a distribution    channel-producer, wholesaler, and retailer-work together as a unified group in order to meet consumer needs. In conventional marketing systems, producers, wholesalers, and retailers are separate businesses that are all trying to maximize their profits. When the effort of one channel member to maximize profits comes at the expense of other members, conflicts can arise that reduce profits for the entire channel. To address this problem, more and more companies are forming vertical marketing systems.
