I understand you just want your computers to WORK & your CLOUD applications to work together so you get the information you need!

When talking to prospective new clients, we continually hear the following:

You and your employees use several cloud applications which means individuals have to manage numerous log ons. Applications generally require identical data input. For instance customer relationship management, email marketing, accounting, surveys, website opt in forms. Possibly you sell products or services from your website and the data has to be added to each application.

The problems

  • You have to manage numerous logins.
  • Cloud programs don’t work together.
  • You know you have the data but you are unable to extract useful information
  • Occasionally you discover duplicate records resulting in costly mistakes

Systems integration is about getting these programs to work together in turn avoiding costly transcription errors and lastly an ability to generate advantageous business reports.
