The 5 Benefits
1) Realtime Data
Working across two systems that aren't integrated means one thing: Time Lag. After inputting data into System 1, you then have to head over to System 2 and manually put the same information to run your reports. All of this wastes time and leads to duplication of effort. Depending on how long it takes to bridge the system gap, you aren't getting a true reflection of compliance in your business.
Instead, if System 1 is integrated with System 2, you get the most accurate look at your data. Admin time is also cut down as you are no longer entering the same information into multiple places.
2) Better Analysis
The more accurate the data, the better the conclusions that can be drawn from it. With the complete oversight that integrated systems can give you, you can make better decisions, identify areas of weakness and hone in on your strong points.
At the very least your reporting process is improved which leads to better decisions for the whole business.
Take a look at the Engage EHS Insights dashboards to see how you can bring your data to life.
3) Optimise Business Processes
Using multiple unconnected systems can slow you down significantly. Whether its people forgetting logins, losing paper documents, creating several versions of the same excel file, it all costs time. It can also lead to a difference in quality levels between systems.
Digitising your business processes is a good start, but utilising specialist systems that can 'speak' to each other brings you greater efficieny.
4) Better Communication Across Departments
If your data is all in one place, easily accessible to all who need it, it facilitates better inter-departmental communication. You no longer overburden those who work on the respective systems with requests for information, you can see everything that you need.
As you now have better oversight of the organisation as a whole, departments can work together more easily to identify and act on areas of concern.
5) Improved System Security
If you are using separate systems, there is a very real risk of your data becoming compromised as you transfer it from place to place. Whether it's emailing a spreadsheet between employees, sharing multiple logins to different systems or changes not being tracked, your business can be vulnerable.
With an integrated system, you are managing access from one central location, typically with secure/encoded data transfers. As you are simplifying the process for employees, it leads to as little human intervention as possible.
