Do you have a data disconnect?
Many businesses like yours use multiple software solutions, like QuickBooks for accounting, a customer relationship management solution for contact management, an eCommerce platform for online orders, an inventory management solution—and so on.
If these systems can’t “talk,” you’re entering identical information in multiple places—a time-consuming, error-prone process.
Even if you have an integration solution, creating new integrations quickly and easily may be difficult. There’s a lot of coding involved, so you’ll need your IT department or a pricey consultant.
We get it. We’ve partnered with many businesses like yours that lacked the vital connection between mission-critical applications to help them achieve end-to-end integration across their operations.
Businesses with disconnected systems frequently report that:
- Business operations aren’t running smoothly due to growth and business/technology changes
- Mistakes are negatively affecting the business (e.g., lost orders, customers not invoiced, and data entry errors)
- Employees spend too much time on administrative work (e.g., double data entry)
- There’s no clear picture of the business due to inaccurate data or data silos within multiple systems
- Creating reports is manual, complex, and time-consuming
- Applications do 95% of what they need, but some processes are too manual
- Leaders can’t make confident decisions in real-time
- Existing integrations are expensive, hard to maintain, inflexible, or limited in scope
Small Changes, Big Impact: Understanding Digital Transformation
There are many definitions of digital transformation, but here’s our favorite: Adopting new—or modifying existing—technology to make your business run better.
This transformation fundamentally changes how businesses operate and deliver value.
Many believe digital transformation is simply using the cloud and analytics. However, those are only two elements of a digital transformation. A comprehensive transformation occurs only when an organization also improves its integration, automation, and system flexibility.
With a successful digital transformation, tackling new challenges, shifting operations, and updating business models are effortless.

The old way of connecting applications (i.e., point-to-point integrations) required hours of coding, specialized IT skills, operational downtime, ongoing management, updates, and expenses many growing businesses couldn’t afford.
