Streamline Your Daily Tasks By Integrating To Useful Tools And Platforms
What Is System Integration?
System integration is the process of connecting different computer systems, applications, or software together so that they can work seamlessly as one. It involves combining different technologies, hardware, software, and network components to create a unified system that can perform specific functions or processes.
52nd Solution can help your business achieve system integration by providing software solutions that can connect and communicate with other systems. For instance, we can provide an application that can communicate with your accounting software such as Xero, Intuit QuickBooks, etc., customer relationship management (CRM) system such as salesforce or Zoho, or any other software you use in your business. They can also develop custom software that integrates with your existing systems to provide specific functionalities.
The benefits of systems integration include:
Increased productivity, and
accuracy - less error rate.
With systems integrated, you can reduce data entry errors, eliminate redundant processes, and streamline operations. This can help you save time, reduce costs, and improve your overall business performance.
For instance, integrating your accounting software with your customer relationship management system can help you track customer invoices, payments, and interactions more efficiently. This can help you provide better customer service and improve your cash flow management.
Let’s say you have an e-commerce website that sells products online, and you also have a warehouse where you store and ship those products. You currently use two separate systems: one for managing your website sales, and another for managing your warehouse inventory and shipping.
Without integration, your warehouse staff may have to manually enter and update order information into their system, which can be time-consuming and prone to errors. This can lead to delays in processing orders and increased costs due to mistakes.
By integrating your website and warehouse systems, you can automate the flow of information between the two systems, allowing for real-time inventory updates and order processing. This means that as soon as a customer places an order on your website, the warehouse system is updated, and the order can be processed without manual intervention.
The cost savings from system integration can come from several sources, including reduced labor costs, improved inventory management, and increased order processing speed. For example, let’s say that before integration, it took an average of 5 minutes for your warehouse staff to manually enter and update order information for each order. With integration, this process can be automated, saving 5 minutes per order. If your warehouse processes 100 orders per day, that’s a total of 500 minutes or 8.3 hours of labor saved per day.
If we assume an average hourly wage of $20 for your warehouse staff, that’s a daily cost savings of $166.60 (8.3 hours x $20 per hour). Over the course of a year, that adds up to $60,739 in labor cost savings.
