We all live in a world, where time in a day is just not enough anymore. Take some time, relax and reflect on your daily life?
Every day we perform the same processes as robots, just familiar with how we do things. But just maybe we missing the boat somehow. What if we can cut off some processes and still end up with the same final result. The only thing is just quicker, more accurate and more productive.
Just like how personal integration is important but so is business systems integration.

WHAT IS A SYSTEMS INTEGRATION?
At its most basic, integration between software is the process of combining two pieces of software to solve the problem of isolated data.
Organizations often have multiple software serving different purposes, but also overlapping in certain functionalities. When these organizations directly link the software to each other via an integration, it can dramatically increase productivity, reduce wasted time due to manual processes and IT resources, and can help your business scale for future growth. …
You can make quicker decisions when you have access to all company data, and watch trends that can impact the business.
