It’s no secret that developing a successful business requires collaboration, whether it’s one business unit or cross-team communication. Most companies utilize multiple applications and systems to store and access data. Sometimes connecting these systems can be difficult, which can inhibit productivity. Integrating your systems will help streamline your business for success.
Many businesses are still using legacy systems (such as MS Access, or even worse, green screens). These systems, though effective, are outdated. There are new platforms, like Quick Base, that can be molded to fit your business. Furthermore, different business units see data differently. Stepping away from legacy systems will allow for you to engage in a systems integration partnership that will provide custom solutions to account for these differences.
Although a systems integration seems like a no-brainer, many businesses are weary of implementing new platforms for several reasons.
- Cost of implementation
- Fear of end user buy-in of a new platform
Yes, integrating systems can be costly. But the return of investment is invaluable if done properly. By migrating or integrating with a cloud-based system, your team can access and share data in real time across multiple platforms. The key to gaining a successful ROI is not so much in the product you use, but the company you partner with to build, migrate, and manage your system.
