Ever since their emergence on the market, enterprise tools and applications have operated independently, offering businesses a powerful upperhand in certain aspects. We are talking about tools such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions with great reporting abilities, that have never been part of a unified structure.
Since they each operate on their own, companies need to go the extra mile and gather data from each and combine it into insightful reports that can enable them to take action. For this, companies are turning to business integration tools that can tie all the data from CRM and ERP together.
Centralizing this information onto a single platform enables every department of an organization to have access to it and to reports at a couple of clicks away. Whoever accesses this information suddenly has the power to take action, as it is needed, thus speeding up and improving the decision-making process.
Point solutions are becoming a thing of the past – companies nowadays prefer having more wholesome approaches that connect everything together.
ERP and CRM solutions can further bring profitability through integration solutions, which enable you to improve your ROI. These business integration tools can do so by yielding the benefits that each solution has individually, as well as those that are born out of their conjuncture.
Enterprises are working with an increasing amount of data – this is why collecting it in a more unified and organized manner has become crucial. This is to say, that companies can continue with these solutions without the need to add new ones, only by joining their services, thus boosting their value.
Collaboration increases, decisions are made faster and better, while innovation is stimulated. The future is in business integration tools.
