Systems integration involves understanding the current business challenge (the processes) and reviewing how the related business processes, tools or applications interact (the integrations). To stay competitive in today’s market, we need to make sure staff or customers have access to everything they need at any given time – from anywhere in the world.

Winners are integrated digital grinners.

The integrated digital world is making many tasks easier, but also harder. By integrating your different technologies together, businesses are able to grow organically without having to worry about imploding due to lack of efficiency or growth.

The truth is systems that are not integrated lead to an inevitable increase in total operational cost and resource consumption. You should consider integrating all of your business systems if any of these apply to you: Your company has grown beyond its current system's capabilities; Your company has multiple locations or divisions; You need real-time data across all departments; You have experienced significant growth over the last few years but haven't had a corresponding increase in IT resources. If you find yourself spending more than 10% of your time on administrative tasks, then there may be a need for integration between different business systems. If you have multiple people working on the same task or project, but they don’t always use the same system or even share information with each other, then this could also indicate a lack of integration between these business systems.

If one person has access to all relevant data while another does not, this too indicates a lack of integration between these business systems.


Lack of real-time reporting is a serious inefficiency.

Are you struggling to get a view of business performance in a timely fashion or having to access multiple platforms to access data? 3rd party tools are the new black. They offer an plethora of business data, but not always in a timely manner or with real-time insight - which can make it difficult for managers to understand what's really happening at their company on any given day. Sometimes with just one simple integration into your system, organisations are able to take new aspects of their performance from one place without exhaustive searching through multiple data sources. The risk is you are either making critical decisions slowly, based on inaccurate information, or are heavily reliant on that one staff member. When that long term staff member with that gut instinct (or spidey senses) suddenly leaves - they take all of their knowledge and experience with them. It can be hard for a business to figure things out or connect the loose pieces.
