The tech industry throws around the word integration a lot, but what does it truly mean for your Viewpoint software? Some software companies use the word integration loosely and say they offer it, when in reality they don’t. This blog cuts through the confusion, helping you identify true Viewpoint software integration and reap its full benefits.
Do you ever have to wait for data to arrive? If you’re ever waiting for data to upload or sync, your software is not truly integrated. You’ve found a way to get different systems to communicate, but they aren’t fully integrated with one another. This can mean long wait times to run reports, start work or purchase orders, or see correct inventory counts. There is also more room for error. If the data is different in two systems, how do you know which one is showing the correct data and which one is waiting to be synced?
Beyond Syncing, Embrace Real-Time:
True integration isn’t just connecting systems—it’s ensuring instantaneous data flow. Imagine this: a warehouse manager scans a barcode, and bam! The inventory updates directly in Viewpoint Vista or Spectrum, no waiting. Seamless, accurate, and empowering. That’s the power of a true Viewpoint software integration.
Beware of Partial Truths:
Some vendors peddle “integration” while their data dances a slow tango. Watch out for:
- Data delays: Still waiting for numbers to sync? That’s not true integration.
- Duplicate data storage: The biggest sin in automation. Don’t let this happen on your watch!
- Exports and imports: An unfortunately common “integration” approach but usually not the right tool for the job.
Ask the Right Questions, Make Informed Decisions:
Don’t settle for partial solutions. When evaluating software, ask:
- How does data flow between systems? Is it immediate and seamless?
- Where is data stored? Is it all centrally located in Viewpoint?
- Is it fully automated? What limitations exist? Does the process require me to think about it at all?
