"In most organisations that use system integration there is a need to improve efficiency and thereby productivity and quality of their operations. The objective is usually to get the company’s various IT systems to communicate with each other in the background so as to avoid the time and effort spent manually sharing information with other departments/components of the organisation including upper management. Through system integration, the organisation will experience increase in information flow speeds as well as reduced operational costs. "
Business process automation can help you to get back on track. It can optimise, and handle, many of the processes restricted by a prior lack of system integration.
That’s because automation technology can talk to different systems and APIs — a mailbox, a cloud folder, a File, a database, a Twitter feed — and make data syncing workflows possible. You can bridge different platforms together and build workflows that span multiple data touchpoints.
Rather than data locked in one place, you get more fluid operations connected by automated, integrated workflows.
The importance of system integration become clear through the benefits it offers. Without system integration, employee time and productivity is wasted on navigating small admin tasks.
With it, however, comes an opportunity to boost productivity. Employees are less tied up in manual data syncing, and your workflows are both more inclusive and more efficient.
System integration also improves the visibility of your business performance. Before, extracting and understanding data was a convoluted task. But with system integration, information is much easier to access and process. So, you can make highly informed, accurate decisions in a shorter time frame.
