Consider the fact that your business sits on an unimaginable amount of data, from employee information to email contacts, and sales leads to financial documentation. The thought of sifting through all of that information can be a bit daunting.
Even though the corporate world has state-of-the-art technology at their disposal, some companies are still retrieving their data manually. Not only is this needlessly time consuming, manual data transfer has the potential to cause some things to be passed over due to the massive amount of information people have to wade through. This is just one of the many reasons why you should consider a data management company like Bedrock Data.
Minimize Software Platforms
Take a minute and consider all the different software programs your company uses. You may have a few different platforms for your CRM, ERP, and Sales systems just as your company might use several different marketing and email systems and then even more software programs for your e-commerce and finance needs.
With data management software like Bedrock Data, all the different information from each of these software applications will be all synced into one place. Your customer contacts from Quickbooks, invoices from Xero, leads and accounts from Pipeliner CRM, and contacts or workflows from HubSpot would all be synced together into one easy to access location. No more shuffling between several different applications to find the information you need for a sales presentation.
More Consistent Data
Given the fact that your company does use so many different applications for the many different types of data generated, it would be safe to say that the formats for each piece of information can vary wildly. This can make searching for a specific document or video for an upcoming presentation all the more difficult. Videos can come in several different formats (mp4, .wav, .mov) and so can documents. Because of this, it can be frustrating going through each file extension to find the media you’re looking for.
When you use data integration, all of those files and data are so much easier to use. The format or specification of each piece of information becomes less inconsistent and ensures people are able to find just what they need, when they need it, with very little effort.
The task of compiling all of this data from so many different directions may seem like an incredibly daunting task. Some companies won’t need assistance going through the setup, which can take anywhere from five minutes up to an hour. However, if you want to make sure everything goes through without a hitch, Bedrock Data gives companies the option of an assisted setup consulting package.
They will get the process started by mapping up to 50 custom fields after an introduction call to get an idea of what you hope to get out of their services. You’ll receive a field mapping creation as well as having your initial data transfer monitored before you even start the actual integration. To ensure everyone is prepared for the upkeep and future data retrieval needs, Bedrock Data will even conduct a one hour training call with your development team.
Take the headache out of your data retrieval needs. The data your company requires from day to day will only increase from here on out, so now is just as good a time as any to consider integrating everything you have in one place.
