The more software programs we use in our organizations, the more data is generated for the business. Moreover, with ERP, CRM, eCommerce web platforms, HRMS and other apps becoming an enterprise mainstay, it is simply difficult to overlook how incoherent and disparate all these systems and the data they generate truly are. The only way to make sense of all these disparate data and systems is to unify them under a single interface.
APPSeCONNECT is a smart iPaaS solution that brings seamless application integration to companies, both large and small. One no longer has to worry about data duplication, miscommunication within teams, and lost opportunities, as APPSeCONNECT not only integrates tools, but it also enhances productivity at the same time. Let us take a look at 10 different ways APPSeCONNECT enhances Business productivity.
1. Connect different Apps and Systems
One of the major reasons why productivity goes down at work is because we just have too many applications that performs various activities. All our employees cannot be familiar with every application that the company may have installed at work, and they may not be familiar with different interfaces that belong to various tools such as ERP, CRM, etc. Though one may learn how to use every app that is installed, it certainly slows employees down. Instead, using APPSeCONNECT helps you connect different apps and systems, and work on them from a single interface, making enterprise integration a reality. This simply helps your employees to make sense of all the apps that are installed, and focus on what they need to do. Here are the App Integration Trends of 2018!
2. Unify critical Business Data
Software tools such as ERP, CRM, and even eCommerce platforms contain and generate critical business data. All this data needs to be matched with each other, and companies will have to ensure that data exchange and business integration take place at the same time, in a coherent manner. APPSeCONNECT makes sure that all the critical business data is unified so that there are no errors or confusions regarding stick updates, price changes, shopping and billing-related updates, and purchase requests. The moment someone places an order on a website, the ecommerce platform communicates with the ERP, initiating not only billing but also shipping. At the same time, the CRM may communicate to the customer that the order has been placed, and provide shipping updates. Employees will no longer have to keep accessing different systems and apps in order to learn what’s happening.
3. Eliminate Data Duplication
On an average, companies lose thousands of man-hours on data duplication, manual data entry, and fixing outdated data entries. This leads to decreased business productivity at work, and employees often complain that their job is getting boring and repetitive. By ensuring that APPSeCONNECT is installed, you can simply avoid this situation and focus on having a single data copy that is synchronized and updated in real time. APPSeCONNECT integrates various applications and ensures that data is not duplicated. It also eliminates employees having to enter data manually, saving valuable time and effort. This naturally leads to an increase in productivity and work-life balance for employees.
4. Access Different Tools on a User-Friendly Interface
As discussed earlier, different software tools and systems have different user interfaces. Some of them may be easy to use, and the others may have a very large learning curve. You surely wouldn’t want to put your employees through unnecessary training each time an application is implemented organization-wide, would you? After all, learning how to use an application, getting comfortable using it, and using it instinctively are all intrinsically tied to being productive. To ensure that your employees are productive, the most important thing that you must do is to integrate all the applications you use on a single interface so that employees can comfortably use whatever app you use on a single easy-to-use interface.
5. Avoid Delays in Order Processing
A number of times, when applications are not integrated, you will find that your orders are not processed in time and that your inventories are not replenished when they need to be. Even if you have the most productive workforce in the whole wide world, they will not be able to meet the speed of business integration tools, which syncs all data in real time between eCommerce platforms, ERP, and CRM. Application integration helps you to initiate order processing simultaneously without having to depend on human intervention. This allows more time for your employees to focus on more important things and enhance business productivity. Also, when orders processed quickly, everything moves at a faster rate.
6. Enhance Communication between Departments and Teams
What could be worse than a communication that is slow between and within teams? The only thing that could be worse than slow communication is miscommunication, which is bound to happen when different teams use different applications, and there are multiple copies data. This also leaves room for errors to be ignored, and when they are found out, there will be a lot more processes to rectify those errors. APPSeCONNECT eliminates all these errors and avoids miscommunication by syncing data between apps in real time, and ensuring that you have a functional integration strategy in place. When all your departments and teams access a single data copy, confusion and miscommunication are eliminated. In other words, smart application integration enhances productivity.
7. Serve your Customers Better
One of the most important signifiers of business productivity at work is that your clients and customers are satisfied. Nobody likes an order that is processed a few hours later, or worse, when an order is misplaced or processed incorrectly. The entire chain gets affected when these errors take place, and employees spend a lot more time on fixing these errors than on customer service, which is one of the effects of loss of productivity. As a premium enterprise integration app, APPSeCONNECT ensures that everything takes place smoothly and in a streamlined way, so that you will not only enhance productivity at work but also verify productivity’s results by watching your customers smile.
8. Access Deeper Insights and Analytics
Teams and departments often find it difficult to come up with the right campaigns and strategies because they do not have access to insights and analytics. By the time they access insights, it might be outdated or irrelevant. APPSeCONNECT’s integration services make accessing insights easy and, in fact, propels it by integrating disparate tools and applications together. When your teams and departments gain access to these rich insights, they will be able to strategize and develop campaigns that actually work, instead of wasting time on campaigns and strategies that are either outdated or ineffective. You may not look at this as productivity, but we do. If you are not able to market yourself or strategize effectively because you lack insights, that means you are not being really productive. A simple solution is to have an integration strategy in place.
9. Eliminate unnecessary Wastage of Resources
Loss of productivity leads to more loss of productivity, simply because when you waste money and time on things that could have been used elsewhere, you are wasting valuable resources that could have been used to enhance productivity. In other words, the business integration Features of APPSeCONNECT reduce your overall expenditure by enhancing sales, reduce operational duration, and by promoting productivity. This has a catalytic effect of promoting more productivity, as resources (both money and time) that are saved can be used to promote further productivity. If your employees have a lot of time left because they no longer are making errors or engaging in manual data entries, send them on a vacation or have an office party. These kinds of activities promote productivity too, if you know what we mean.
10. Streamline all Business Operations
At the end of the day, one of the hallmarks of an organization that is not productive is that there is usually a lot of chaos. This chaos is caused by having one too many applications implemented, without any sort of streamlining. Our App Integration services ensure that all your systems, tools and business applications are streamlined so that all your business operations are in sync with whatever is taking place in real time. As for your employees, they feel more productive because they have access to data and insights that are streamlined, on an interface that is unified and integrated.
