The needs of IT are changing – and industry leaders are beginning to see IT as an enabler of business performance. This transition has created more complex challenges for CIOs as they look for ways to create the highest value for customers through greater flexibility and faster technology innovation.

Social connectedness, mobile devices, and growing opportunities for interaction “any time any place” have changed the way people live and work. They require anywhere, in-context collaboration services that link the right people, in the right place, in the right context, at the right time, across multiple channels of communications.

Yet years of growth and global expansion through acquisitions and new market opportunities have left many enterprises with manufacturing, distribution, accounting, customer service, sales and procurement operations that are being run on disparate legacy business systems. These systems are highly inefficient, expensive to support and maintain, and lack visibility into the global business data companies need to make quick, informed decisions.

In order to maximize performance, these organizations must look for ways to:

  • Consolidate systems and improve their efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Embrace new technology to achieve higher levels of business performance.
  • Increase automation by removing workaround systems and activities.
  • Reduce the time and increase the success of bringing new products and services to market through workstreams and information flows that allow the organization to act quickly.
  • Enable real-time visibility into information needed for improved decision making.

Today's industry leaders are taking advantage of enterprise technology solutions to improve performance and drive more profitable growth. Unfortunately, maintaining and improving a diverse set of systems can be extremely expensive and impair the timing for both decisions and products being delivered to customers – inhibiting the amount of value provided and forming a barrier to continuous improvement.

Why Merit Solutions?

Systems integration is about more than system design and application development. While it is important that integrations are properly developed and tested, they must connect value streams in a seamless and scalable manner. It is just as important that people and work streams are enabled by the systems with high reliability and the opportunity for continuous improvement.

We are able to provide higher value systems integration services because of our experience in the following areas:

  • Mobile Platforms – Merit Solutions has experience developing enterprise mobile apps and services for Android, Windows, and iOS devices, specifically as it relates to maps / routes, orders, call centers, field sales, field technicians / service, and payment management.
