Abstract: While electronic customer relationship management (e-CRM) has been thoroughly investigated via multiple research perspectives and multidisciplinary approaches in the past, until today, there has been no available work providing an integrated framework of the relevant e-CRM literature and its corresponding classification schemes. To that end, this paper manipulates a database of approximately 400 references and classifies e-CRM research activity via classification variables, sector investigated, journal/year of publication, type of research employed (e.g., experiment vs. case study), discipline(s) involved, etc. This review paper serves as a useful point of reference for both researchers and practitioners, as it provides a broadened understanding of conceptual and functional e-CRM features, while clarifying the types of research conducted within the e-CRM spectrum as a whole. Further, this paper describes how e-CRM dimensions are labelled and treated within the boundaries of the various disciplines/research areas.
