It is designed to accommodate a variety of disciplines in a single web-based application.

Regardless of the industry your business operates in, you should aggressively pursue integration at all levels and the hybrid integration option is one of the most proven and effective tools for integration on the market.

Integration is a Major Barrier to Success

A recent report from Econsultancy has revealed some interesting data regarding technology integration as it relates to business growth. According to results, 43% of company respondents (39% of supply-side respondents) reported that integration with current technology systems and softwares was the one of the three biggest challenges they faced when expanding their e-commerce business.

Integration is a major issue because of the discrepancies and functionality of systems across the board. One company may have dozens of different independent platforms at work, making it difficult to combine and integrate processes. The complexities of these issues have forced companies to move beyond the walls of their internal corporate structure and seek out professional integrators to help customize and assimilate solitary solutions.

According to the Technology for Ecommerce Survey Report, more than a quarter (27%) of organizations have used a systems implementer or integrator program in the past, while nearly 10% more are planning to in the future.

What Does Effective Integration Look Like?

Because of the incredible need for systems integration, a variety of tools, programs, and companies specializing in this service are popping up everywhere. The key for any business that is trying to find helpful systems integration is to learn what effective systems integration looks like.

An effective systems integration solution should allow new applications to be seamlessly introduced into a business’s existing platform, permit easy modification of current business processes, allow for additional delivery channels to open up, and automate processes that previously required manual intervention. Whether it is for accounting, billing, order management, payroll, production, or any number of other everyday activities, effective systems integration solutions should be able to resolve and simplify all aspects of a company.
