You may wonder whether there is value to integrating your data and what data should be integrated? The value is most certainly there and the process of merging data and databases can be overwhelming and expensive. It can also provide the silver bullet you have been looking for in terms of profitability, delivering better customer service, optimizing inventory as well as driving sales. Data integration provides you with the opportunity to preserve valuable existing relationships as well as uncovering future value.
Keeping your data in silos empowers no one in your business. It is difficult for everyone in your organization to be effective if they have to log into and out of different software programs to gather the data they need to either provide good service to a client; understand the true cost of raw materials or know where the company may be exposed. Through the utilization of dashboards and role based reports you can truly enable the type of decision making that makes your company profitable.
Mobile tools allow the various decision makers within your company to be more effective and productive in how they spend their working hours. Whether they are visiting clients; taking sales orders or delivering a service, they need to have access to the back end systems to accurately record their billable hours; understand inventory availability and delivery dates; place orders or review reports to make wise investment decisions while travelling.
