The art of successful business management in modern economic environments requires a lot of variables to synchronise and pull in the same direction towards corporate objectives.

A recent study by Aberdeen Group highlighted how mid sized business are looking at technology to help overall profitability. A key objective to improving profit margins is in streamling business processes. With more than a 1/3 of mid sized businesses relying on business process streamlining, data integration tools should be high on the list of priorities.

If you are running an Accounting and ERP system such as Sage 200 or Sage 300 you are likely to be linking up many processes into one key central system. Wouldn’t it be better if you could integrate more of your business processes through the same system with the help of a data integration tool?

For example you may be considering online payment processing if you are running an ecommerce business where you might want to integrate ecommerce tools such as Magento with your ERP system. With a data integration tool such as IMan you can bring online payments back into your Sage system without the need to run the two solutions in isolation.

There are a number of possible applications you may wish to look at data integration for, including:

- eCommerce & webstore

- Purchase & procurement/EDI

- Manufacturing systems.

- Distribution and warehouse management

- Timesheet, billing & job costing

- Point of sale

- Banking transactions and reconciliation

- Data feeds/automated data capture
