Benefits of Working with a Systems Integration Consultant

With technology and digital transformation being so vital to business operations today, having a system integrations consultant to help you automate and synchronize your systems is necessary to grow and stay competitive. With your entire business infrastructure connected, you can rest easier knowing that communication between your systems or departments is no longer scattered or nonexistent. But who is going to help make sure it stays connected? What happens when your technology becomes outdated? How will you keep sensitive data secure and day-to-day operations running smoothly? Every business has its hiccups, but if your once well-oiled machine is now showing signs of age and slowing operations, it’s time to make a change.

When faced with the need to improve productivity and the quality of day-to-day operations, systems integration becomes necessary to streamline interoffice procedures . A systems integration consultant can help you connect various IT systems, services and software to optimize communications between systems and interoperability between your departments.

Do I Really Need A Systems Integration Consultant? (My Current Software Works Just Fine)

Often as companies grow, software is added piecemeal. Priority may be given to one department’s needs while hamstringing others. Separate tools for different departments result in data silos, poor decision-making and duplicate data entry. It may be tempting to scrap the myriad tools for a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, but if those tools were smart decisions and work well for each department, the best solution may be an integration of existing systems.

Incorporating the expertise of a systems integration consultant will provide:

  • Knowledge-based, firsthand experience with multiple platforms.
  • Understanding of successful information sharing.
  • Creativity to adapt to your specific requirements.
  • Code evaluation and application assessments.
  • Extended lifecycle of existing systems.
  • Reduction in duplication and other inefficiencies.
  • Ongoing maintenance, enhancements and tech support.

Sometimes, just getting by isn’t enough. With a systems integration consultant, you can leverage investment in existing tools, extend the usefulness of existing systems and reduce duplication to save time and money with low cost of ownership.

When in Doubt, Consult the Experts

NOT choosing an expert team to integrate your systems is risky. The increased overhead from inefficient data sharing and disconnected outside sales could be costing you time and money. Duplicated work could be causing entry errors, too. Having total control over your systems and collected data allows you to truly reap the benefits of your IT investments.
