Companies usually rely on different departments and processes that, as the business grows, these also expand. It is important to establish differences between each department because each one is dedicated to a specific aspect of the business. However, this can cause information to be fragmented, duplicated or inaccessible. This in turn can lead to loss of time and resources.

There are platforms that have the ability to integrate varied data form different sources into a single application like for example Netsuite 360 °. This way information becomes more accessible to other employees of the company and, moreover, they can be sure that the data is reliable, consistent and updated.
