What does it really cost to NOT integrate your business systems?

It goes without saying that efficient business systems are valuable. When you use more than one type of software to manage different areas of your business, is it worth spending money to integrate them? There are two primary costs of manually maintaining data  between independent software systems.

Time

Time, as the saying goes, is money.  The time taken to double-enter data in multiple systems can add up quickly, and it can be very easy to fall behind when things get busy.  Time spent on data entry could be better utilised on other activities, ideally those that generate revenue.  Accounts people could be chasing receivables instead of entering timesheets, and Sales staff can be closing deals instead retyping quote information into follow-up emails.

Human Error

When data needs to be entered by hand, the risk of human error is introduced. Increase the number of times you need to enter the data and you increase the risk of error. Is that a risk you’d like to take? How much would a data entry error cost?

When you consider the above factors, having a system that is seamlessly integrated is beyond valuable.  Data is immediately and exactly sent from one software program to another, based on triggers designed to suit your workflow,  without any user input after initial setup.
