Decisions make or break companies, especially in an unforgiving, highly competitive market. The right decisions could take your organization to the next level, but the wrong ones could lead to a downward spiral that closes your doors forever. An integration clarifies what directions to take by offering complete data visibility. Here are a few of the ways an integration supports intelligent decision-making.
Be Informed with Data Transparency
Some leadership teams take pride in making important decisions using “gut instinct,” but this strategy will only take your business so far. Without data to show you what your teams are doing well, what they are doing poorly, and where you have unnecessary slowdowns or waste, you will always be blind when it comes to understanding the fundamentals of your organization.
To become truly confident in the future of your business, you need knowledge to help it grow. An integration gives you that knowledge by allowing you to see data from all of your software out of one system. Instead of struggling to find what you are looking for, you will have a single source of truth. Planning can occur by looking at client, account, labor, equipment, supplier, and other data all at the same time. Decisions like when to restock inventory can be made based on both the present and the future: your ERP will showcase your current inventory demands while your CRM will indicate what may be coming down the pipeline from new clients. If you are looking for an integration, Unity: Integration by Datix is a prebuilt application specifically designed to give data transparency to manufacturers.

Analysis Tools at Your Fingertips
In addition to giving you data, the right integration gives you the tools you need to analyze it. With a Unity integration, you can experience features like forecasting, quoting and pricing calculators, and customer geographic metrics to gain a 360-degree view of your organization. These features make it far easier understand your next moves to gain maximum profitability while maintaining your quality standards. Frequently, these tools magnify the results of one another: accurate forecasting means better bulk purchasing, which leads to cheaper materials costs and m ore competitive pricing options.
If you are unsure how to set up the analytics tools you need with your integration, look to Datix. We ensure that your team can always make informed decisions by supporting you every step of the way. From the planning, to the implementation, to our active management of Unity, our team will make sure you always have the tools you need to move your business forward.
Confidence in How to Scale
One of the largest decisions an organization makes is when and how it chooses to scale up its business. Unfortunately, trying to grow too quickly can cause even the most successful companies to fail only a few years later. With a Unity integration, you don’t need to worry about becoming too successful for your system to keep up. Unity stands apart because it was designed to expand with organizations as they grow. While other popular integrations platforms are built using single record processing principles that threaten KPI limits, Unity employs batch record processing. This robust methodology ensures that our integration can handle whatever you need, without glitching or slowing down. We tested Unity extensively for scalability and it has already processed over 350 million records. No matter how quickly your company expands, you never need to worry about software holding you back.

If your company is being held back by uncertainty, don’t give up. An integration can remove your doubts about the future and give you the data to make better decisions for your business.
