Connecting industry specific cloud applications to build bespoke business systems
17 Oct 2019
In your business, you may use several different software applications to assist with various functions and tasks. In a perfect world, you'd have one system that matched exactly how you work. While this may be a somewhat utopian view, it is possible to use connected applications to allow you to build a system that affords you the ability to keep information in one place, reduce double entry of data and use applications that are built specifically for the tasks you are performing in your industry. By selecting best-of-breed software and connecting them to create a flow of data that gives you access to the right information, when and where you need it, in one place, you can build a system that works for you. With the rise of APIs, tools like Zapier, and the number of apps that are willing to offer connections in this manner, we're seeing many possibilities open up to businesses of all sizes to digitise their systems in a way that works for them. We'll take a look at how a built environment business might use this technology to digitise and connect many areas of the business with the latest and greatest tools available.
