Systems integration is a vital part of any company’s infrastructure. By achieving a superior level of systems integration a company can achieve a strategic advantage over its competitors and leverage that advantage to gain market share.
System integration projects are intended to achieve one of several possible goals which can include:
- Reducing the amount of data entry or manual processes required to run the business.
- Increasing the efficiency of information gathering and reporting by providing a centralized solution to merge non-integrated systems into a centralized repository with all information.
- Reduce the possibility of getting different answers to the same question caused by working on non-integrated systems.
Due to the diversification of software systems found in corporations today and the necessity for streamlined operations, systems integration projects are often required to bridge this gap. Over time companies often end up with a suite of systems resulting in disconnected information. Although these separate systems may still be necessary the fact they are non-integrated often prevent the company from functioning efficiently. In today’s corporate environment ERP, CRM, and WMS systems are critical to managing the core operations. Additionally, information ends up in smaller less critical applications including Excel, Access or other similar information stores. With a properly designed project, all critical information throughout a company can be leveraged to provide efficient access to all systems without employees having to manually bridge the gaps.
The Northlake Partners have a team of individuals with 10+ years of experience designing, implementing and managing systems integration projects to achieve the goals outlined above to meet a client’s needs.
