The Connected Enterprise--ERP and CRM Data Integration
Too many manufacturers operate with software systems using disconnected technology. This means that valuable data from one silo of the business may not be visible to another; leading to cumbersome processes and dual data-entry. Ultimately, what businesses want is a singular source of data that all departments can draw upon. Datix CEO Bryan Sapot will share his knowledge and experience regarding enterprise software integration. Learn what businesses can achieve by integrating ERP and CRM, and the best ways to approach these kinds of projects.
