Integration

SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT INTEGRATION?

In some respects, ‘integration’ is a bit of a misused term that some people (typically non-technical) get caught up on. Many times we have heard comments such as, “If you haven’t integrated to our system before, it’ll be a show stopper” or “our system and processes are a lot more complicated than most other organisations – we don’t want to be the guinea pig if you don’t have experience working with our system”. The reality is that Efficiency Leaders is a business process automation specialist. Integration is just one aspect that we need to be experts in to enable not only our solutions to function well but to provide exceptional efficiency dividends for those solutions we provide.

From that aspect, and with all due respect for those evaluating the market, we haven’t found a system yet that we haven’t been able to integrate with. Not only that, we have received global accolades for our integration capabilities!

Another point to mention is that although integration is important, it sits a number of rungs down the ladder in terms of the challenges that need to be overcome with the successful deployment of a solution. A more reassuring point to note is that there are only ever four possible ways to integrate, all of which Efficiency Leaders are highly skilled and experienced in!

WHAT IS INTEGRATION REALLY?

“Integration” is the process of combining several different components or subsystems, often disparate from each other,  into a coherent single system which functions as a whole. The aim of integrating is to enable the data in all the different systems to work together, easily sharing information, as and when needed, in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Sometimes, this requires customised architecture or specific applications which combine with existing systems.

There are obviously some challenges and it may sometimes be perceived as complex, time-consuming or too costly to implement. These challenges are often due to multiple systems having dissimilar data structures, application frameworks, manufacturing specifications, historical ages, and the manner in which those systems actually deliver information. However, the benefits that are gained by tackling these challenges far outweigh the negative aspects of attempting to maintain an operating system with applications that cannot ‘communicate’ with each other, resulting in the poor exchange of process data and inefficiency in business processes.

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH EFFICIENCY LEADERS

At Efficiency Leaders, we aim to make integration as simple as possible to implement and straightforward to understand. You can be assured that if you have a need to automate any business process or need to integrate into any system, we will find a cost-effective and highly efficient way to achieve this. No matter what software or systems your organisation uses, we can leverage any methods that are available, meaning we are able to provide smart and seamless integration for our customers. Even if no methods are available, we still have a solution for providing integration!

EFFICIENCY LEADERS HAS PROVEN INTEGRATION EXPERIENCE

Efficiency Leaders has a proven track record with extensive integration experience performed by implementing a large array of business process automation projects. Generally, there are four proposed methods that will enable seamless integration to a line-of-business system:

Data lookup and invoice data export using flat files (CSV, XML) to the ERP

Querying the data directly using SQL Queries for lookups and exporting the invoice data directly into staging tables using SQL Queries

Consumption of available API’s and/or other web services available

Utilising RPA (Robotics Process Automation) for data integration and manipulation procedures.
