German term or phrase: Bestandsfuehrungsystem
This is used in relation to a service company with no physical products. It is used in a diagram about managing customer data - would information management system be possible?
English translation:Please see my answer
Explanation:
I would still call it "inventory management system" (Schäfer Wirtschaftswörterbuch); in a financial context, it may also be "portfolio management" or simply, referring to customers (=accounts), "account management".

Good luck and all the best!
