Firstly, let’s explore how the infrastructure of a segregated application looks like and what problems it causes then you will be able to find out how Util360’s professional system could benefit you and organize your business activities.
INFRASTRUCTURE OF BUSINESS INCORPORATING SEGREGATED APPLICATIONS:
A steadily expanding company can become entangled due to complex and multiple applications. When the business starts, company management installs software to manage their bookkeeping
Lately, in order to expand the customer community they opt for management systems, along with these systems they launch particular portals to deal with customer care problems. Multiple softwares and spreadsheets are utilized to address the issues of Inventory management, order management and fulfillment systems.
Furthermore in order to maximize the top line revenue, company takes a step towards expanding the business to multiple locations and launch additional sales channels, prompting the processes of ecommerce integration, recurring billing, and financial consolidation. Now, in order to support these channels and processes, companies opt for applications from various vendors, homegrown applications, thus making the system even more complex.
Businesses that evolve their systems over time in this manner can find themselves with a poorly planned infrastructure that handles short-term tactical needs sub-optimally while holding the company back from scaling efficiently over the long term. This tangled web of segregated business software systems, often referred to as a “software hairball”, inhibits flexibility, productivity, and ultimately slows down the company’s ability to grow.
Challenges paved due to segregated infrastructure:
When expanding companies go for multiple applications then multiple problems are caused. These problems grow gradually as the company keeps expanding. Here are the few top most complex challenges that companies might face:
Employee productivity wasted:
When the company starts its journey towards expansion and growth, each and every employee operates at optimal productivity. This journey is often hindered when the employees face problems due to a disjoint and disconnected system which also paves way for errors and consumes long enough time to keep employees from actual tasks. Operations such as order processing, invoicing, expense approvals, and fulfillment are time taking tasks and due to miscommunication it becomes complex and takes double the effort and time.
Lack of real time visibility:
When software systems are un-integrated, you have multiple overlapping databases, and cannot easily get a view of business performance in a timely fashion. Reports showing performance across your finance, sales, marketing, service, and fulfillment departments are crucial to giving you an integrated view of your company’s operations. Most companies simply give up on acquiring this information on a regular basis because of the amount of time it takes to source, extract and analyze this data. For those that do, countless hours are wasted trying to tie unrelated, error-prone, and out of date information together. Consequently, businesses either end up making critical decisions slowly, based on inaccurate information, or they make hasty and risky decisions off of gut instinct.
Maintenance and excessive costing:
When multiple applications are involved to work with, IT wastes a lot of time and money to integrate, maintain and acquire the latest versions of applications. Sometimes, such a situation might occur where an IT team purchases the latest versions of an application and still they require additional integration and maintenance to work together with other softwares. Therefore, it wastes time and money which is worth saving and utilizing it for deserving operations.
Ineffective customer support:
Customer support and acquisition along with a healthy customer employee relationship are the key fundamentals on which a company grows and makes its mark. Due to ferocious competition in the market, if the services slow down for even a moment, customers would simply shift their dimensions and move on towards the next best company providing efficient services. If the customer has to get information, finds the status of order or Contact Company again and again it would exasperate one automatically. Therefore, companies require a solution or software that works with integration and provide a system that is well connected along with providing customer information portals which they can have access to anytime and anywhere.
