Your information network is likely a mix of components and data sources that provide data to departments within your organization to keep things running smoothly. But is everything running as smoothly as it could? Let’s talk about integration automation.
Standalone systems can leave large amounts of room for error, creating added work. This is especially true when entries such as customer contact information or transactions have to be re-entered into several different systems. Integration can remove the need for re-entry of data and other important information.
For example, let’s say you have a new customer. If you’re running multiple systems without integration, you are relying on manual entry for each system (ie. Accounting, sales and shipping). With integration, once the initial customer data is entered, it is automatically shared across all requires systems. This saves lots of time, money and other resources in the long run, and reduces the room for error. So when do you know if it’s time for your organization to start integrations? Questions to ask yourself include:
- Do you have large volumes of data?
- Do you manually transfer data from point A to point B to point C frequently?
- Can the required systems be connected and will it be beneficial?
- How often does this data transfer need to happen?
- How critical are our data transfers?
Consider how much you spend each year (in time and money) on the manual re-entry of data. How often do errors arise because of this? Would integration automation free up time and resources for other important tasks?
