Your business is changing. As a finance leader, you know that accounting is a labour-intensive, costly process where
systems often don’t allow for expedient exception handling and many days are fraught with difficulty in matching
invoices to other databases for reconciliation. Like most companies, you know where you want to go but may not have
infrastructure or internal expertise to handle electronic fund transfers, credit card payments or cheque processing— all
the pieces required to make your vision for an efficient, integrated operation a reality.
Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.

Kundenspezifische Anpassungen sind grundsätzlich nicht schlecht. Schenkt man jedoch den Beschwerden von IT-Verantwortlichen Glauben, verwandeln sie sich allzu häufig in einen teuren und aufwendigen Albtraum aus Patches, Rückcodierung und Hindernissen, die einem Upgrade der Software im Wege stehen.

Jedes Unternehmen ist einzigartig in seinen spezifischen IT-Anforderungen. Und jedes Unternehmen wünscht sich die Flexibilität, seine Systeme bedarfsgerecht zuzuschneiden.
