Technology keeps the organism that we call “business” interconnected and communication between your different departments is crucial. As example, when a sale is made, the shipping department needs to know to send the order and in which quantities. The same way it’s important your salesperson should know the orders on hand for a customer along with sales history and what invoices have been paid or are still open.
But are your salespeople privy to that information? How can they obtain it without human intervention? In most cases, someone needs to run a report for them. If this is the case, the information is not ‘live’ and can potentially be outdated before they obtain it.
