Tools For Business Process Automation
Currently most businesses need to move towards automation of the internal business operations – CRM (customer relationship management) and ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems. Both CRM and ERP are computer-aided tools for Business Process Automation (BPA).
Most research agencies agree on the fact that market demand for these products has increased dramatically. Businesses integrate their ERP and CRM software to streamline business processes and boost productivity.
However, different market players search for their own benefits. Large enterprises turn to more traditional approach to ERP and CRM systems implementation seeking the intangible aspect of customer satisfaction, while small and medium enterprises want real value for money and to be able to calculate income. Some of them prefer ready-to-use solutions. Others augment them with some additional modules. And of course, there are enterprises that make their choice in favour of custom software.
Most common industries for CRM implementation
So what are the benefits CRM and ERP provide for business?
If to think about the amount of data generated daily, business owners have found themselves in a more complex business environment than ever. That’s why company’s efficient operation demands a single system for BPA that could unite all the working processes.
Satisfied customers are the most valuable asset to any business. That’s why one of the biggest advantages of ERP and CRM integration is having a complete view of your audience: buying habits, order history, financial details, etc. Analytical information provided is helpful for tracking changes in your customers’ preferences, so you’re able to develop your business in the right direction.
Without a fully integrated system, employees risk to work in a less efficient way. Let’s say, there is a pending order from your customer. Without a unified system, your employee will have to look through different systems to access customer’s contact details, make the order way, which may lead to a negative customer experience and therefore a loss in business.

From words to practice
The client’s story is as follows. He turned to us with the issue of CRM development and support. Our first challenge was that at least two different teams had previously been developing the system. CRM had lots of bugs which affected badly the system’s operation, which in its turn was harmful to the organization’s reputation. At that time, the client already had business in 2 countries where this system was operating, and these problems bothered the owner: - the number of users was constantly growing - the number of bugs in the system disturbed users more and more - new clients asked for new features
The owner was shocked and didn’t know how not to lose his franchisees and satisfy his needs. Having analyzed the code, we understood that bugs appeared while making the basic architecture long time ago. The only way out was to rewrite the system using other technologies and customization according to users’ needs. While one team was developing the new system, the other one was put to maintain the software.
When the new system was launched, Code Inspiration team added necessary functionality to make it possible to deploy a new locale within 2 working days with an opportunity of customization and localization which will suit the country where new franchise is going to open. The project has been successfully implemented and currently is under the SLA agreement for maintenance and support purposes.Read client review
