    There is no difference other than the leading billing system being ISU or IST. Both industry solutions use FICA as the backend. FICA is sometimes referred to as RMCA.

      This is not fully correct.

      There is a clear difference in the Master Data Management of FICA and RMCA. FICA is built up with the concept of one Business Partner to one ore many Contract Accounts, one Contract Account has connection to one ore more contracts. Contract is linked to the technical part of SAP Utilities via the move in process here the Business Master data and the Technical Master data is joined via this process.

      RMCA are only working with the concept of Business Partner and Contract Account, and have no direct link to the Technical Master date in Telecoms.

      However in the configuration, FICA and RMCA is nearly the same. But when it comes to standard integration to the rest of the SAP world, e.g. SAP Financial Supply Chain Management (FIN-FSCM). The integration possibilities are depending on the release you are working on. E.g. Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable (FI-CA) As of Industry Release 4.72 Note that the integration for Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable (FI-CA) in releases that are earlier than SAP ERP 2005 is subject to a restricted level of functions. There is no standard integration for RMCA, the same principals using dunning by dunning strategies can be used, but this need to be run via FCC Financial Customer Care (CRM) by the use of Industry Business Function Set and special functionality integrating RMCA to FCC.

      If other areas have the same restriction, if you have both FICA and RMCA activated, you can view the integration to other SAP components.

      Both systems is build for mass volume handling in receivables.

    FI-CA is used across all industries or flavours like Media, Telecom, Utilities, Public sector etc.

    For Telecom, FI-CA is called as RM-CA.

    The IS solution for RM-CA is IS-T and is customized for such an industry.

    For Utility industry, we have IS-U FI-CA.

    The underlying backbone is same for all FI-CA solutions but they have been customized to serve the appropriate industry.
