Integration refers to the coordination of software or systems implemented on different technologies or platforms. In this way, several pieces of software form a single entity, where information is easily transferred from one system to another. Thanks to the integration, you can reduce the amount of manual work and save both time and costs. With functional integration, data transfer is so seamless that the user doesn't even notice the integration used in the software.
How do I know I need integration?
The need for integration arises when deficiencies in an existing system's functionality are identified. Using two systems is a time-consuming and even inefficient solution over a longer period. Combining multiple systems into one entity saves valuable time and simplifies the amount of manual work. An example of the coordination of the two systems is the integration of the ordering system and the billing system. In this case, the ordering system automatically transfers the order data directly to the billing system, from which the system automatically sends the invoice to the customer. Technical integration may arise if a part of the system is obsolete or a new update is no longer compatible with the current system. Due to the time delay in data transfer, e-commerce balances may conflict with actual inventory values. The product ordered by the customer from the online store may be sold out, even if the product still appears in the store's catalog. To avoid unnecessary frustration and additional costs for the customer and the company, it is time to consider software integration. With functional integration, the software stays up-to-date and easier to maintain in the future.

The price of integration?
Corpenet experts offer you the opportunity for customized integration that meets the needs of your business. Before the actual technical implementation, we need to map out the need for integration, after which the work progresses to the design stage. The integration price is determined by the time taken to build the integration itself. Working time is affected by, among other things, how extensive the integration is and whether it is necessary to create its own software for it. With your own software, it is possible to integrate different applications into, for example, Microsoft Power Apps.
