The main purpose of this paper is to present an idea of social CRM, and first of all a multi-agent approach for designing and developing social CRM systems. To demonstrate this approach the prototype of a multi-agent social CRM system (MASCRM) is described. The structure of this paper is organized as follows: first, we provide an overview of the social CRM system. Then, we present agent technology that provides some foundation for the development of a social CRM system. Next, the MASCRM concept and its components are presented in detail followed with a description of the prototype system. Finally, we summarize the key points of the research and give directions for future research.
