Why is software integration essential to your success? From databases to due diligence tools (GuideStar, CRA, etc.) to online banking and payment systems, you probably use an assortment of software solutions to accomplish your day-to-day work. While these technologies are meant to make your job easier, every time you re-type somethingthere’s opportunity for error—not to mention the inefficiency of dual data entry, the need to reconcile systems, and manual aggregation for reporting. Make your life easier by choosing software that works well together.
Technology companies tout their ability to integrate with other products or services, but “integration” can meandifferent things and may not be smooth or painless. Our industry has progressed from importing and exporting to APIs, bridges, and web services. Learn how to take these functions into consideration when creating your technology plan by asking yourself these important questions: What integration features should I look for when considering new solutions? What factors should I consider when deciding to integrate programs or data sources? Do I have fail-safe plans if integration is compromised? Is there ever a time when integration is a bad idea?
