Moving From Pieces to Harmonic Processes

Software Integration – Moving From Pieces to Harmonic Processes

Achieving business objectives requires a seamless flow of information between all business functions.

Multiple business departments need integrated information flow:

  • To retain customers
  • Capture customer information
  • Follow up with clients
  • Receive a customized request for a product or service
  • Product design
  • Manage processes
  • Deliver finished goods
  • Collect payments

Further, to execute complex processes efficiently quick data exchange between applications through efficient software integration is necessary.

Achieving an ideal solution requires one of two actions:

  1. Integrating and customizing existing applications, which can be time consuming and result in a hodgepodge of programs strung together with complex coding and programming processes.
  2. Adopting flexible applications designed, developed, and supported to work together.

You Can Benefit from Software Integration

In 1997, Paul Strassman stated in The Squandered Computer, “Aligning information systems to corporate goals has emerged as the number one concern over the last five years in surveys of information systems executives.” Today, his words are still valid. Software integration is an important component of a strategic plan to help your business effectively compete.

What is Software Integration?

Data and information travel between different software applications. Passing from one application to the next may cause changes that translate, repackage, or regroup data and information, which can become lost or incorrectly transformed. Frustrating to management and staff, time is wasted reentering data and information, and the possibilities for errors increase each time.

Overall, software integration can either improve company operations or become a detriment without the right expertise to guide the process. Taliferro IT Consulting possesses the right expertise for implementing seamless information alignment to company data that is easy to retrieve and manage. Moreover, a company will benefit from significant savings in worker hours by eliminating the need to enter information into several applications.

Eventually, disparate and unaligned systems are costly to companies. To solve your software integration challenges, we focus on how all your systems exchange data, and if the exchanges consistently occur. A real-time, valuable assessment of your business does not result from poorly integrated systems.
