5 benefits of a fully integrated information system
One common problem for many organisations is how to efficiently manage the continually expanding amounts of data they have to store regarding employees, clients and suppliers.
Despite technology being implemented across many organisations in order to assist with the management of data, it is not the case for all of them and many of those that do have an adequate information system, are not maximising its potential to make the overall business more efficient.
Through having an effective information system and fully integrating data, organisations can receive multiple benefits than enable them to achieve business objectives whilst remaining cost-effective.
The top five benefits of a fully integrated information system are:
1. Real Time Data
Through having integrated information in one system, all of the data is up to date. This is essential for all elements of the organisation ranging from marketing communications through to finance.
2. Better Communication
Team members will be able to communicate better through having exactly the same information available to them at each time. Its saves having to mis-match data between systems and departments.
3. Reduced Risk of Errors
Due to the fact that data will not have to be replicated, there is less chance of human errors being made which leads to more accurate information available.
4. Greater Productivity
Employees can spend more time on tasks that will help the business to grow, rather than having to replicate data and wait for information to be sent to them from other departments.
5. One Secure Location
Through having all of the necessary data stored in one information system, relevant data is easier for employees to access. Many leading business systems allow restrictions on what individual employees are allowed to access so sensitive information can be seen only by those who need it.
Fully integrated, complete business systems such as Sage 200 have benefits across the entire organisation. It is a common misconception that such systems are only relevant to those in accounting roles. Eventura tailor systems to suit the individual organisation and ensure that the system works to the best of its ability for the clients overall organisation. This often includes the implementation of a CRM system which is beneficial for sales, marketing and admin functions as well as individual modules dependant on client requirements and operations.
