If management have the information they need then they can act to leverage market advantage and deliver growth. ERP, CRM, EDM, centralised information without walled gardens, internal transparency and business integrity.
In order for any organisation to act in a coordinated and responsive way there needs to be effective information sharing and systems. Gathering together different information sources is a vital part of this process and doesn’t need to mean going out and buying expensive new systems.
Information is the most important asset of any business. Information about the customers, about the products or services and information about how sales and ontime delivery translates to financial results.
Information systems all have ways of communicating. These pathways can be exploited to extract information and present it in a form that can be used as a basis for strategic decision making.
Leaders cannot act without the right information, on time, as a foundation for strategy. Do you know the value of your information assets?
