Why should information systems in cloud be considered?
Digital transformation and cloud has been written about much too often. You can find out why this topic is connected to information systems and how you can access the latest technologies to support you in ahieving your goals.
Today, it is hard to imagine not sharing holiday photos on social media with your friends, booking cinema tickets online or ordering goods directly from your phone.
So, why is it quite common to believe that it is more convenient and safer to have the information system, on which your business and its productivity depends, hosted on your own server with all the limitations that comes with it?
Why is it like this when, in our personal lives, we rely so much on services directly dependant on the online environment and we have to deal with every second delay and downtime?
Cloud-based applications are not a cost of the present, but an investment for the future
Automation, robotization of various types of manufacturing production to automated advertising, where an algorithm applies the perfect online advertising solution for you, this is what the future of business process management will look like.
Almost all organizations, according to the available surveys, perceived digital transformation as one of the main means to meet strategic and development goals.

We have some examples of the connection of CRM and ERP with business intelligence and automation so you can get the most of infrastructure and computing possibilities.
- Data extraction from invoices - Save time of your accountants and enter invoices into the system by a few clicks thanks to the automated data extraction from PDFs and emails so that even accountants can work remotely.
- Working remotely – your employees don’t have to sit in an office to do their jobs. Technicians on call can take a picture of the fault straight from his/her mobile phone and enter the service into the system. Now, you don't need to wait hours or days to invoice your activities otherwise you need to get back at the office and enter everything into the computer.
- Predictive service – prevent repairs and unexpected downtime that impacts your profitability by implementing IoT and connection with your service team. Monitor machine status in real time, plan service downtime in advance and in less time because you know exactly what part needs to be replaced and what's happening to the machine.
- Automate routine activities – no more forwarding invoices in attachments or monthly documents. Thanks to automation, the invoice will be sent where it is needed immediately after it is issued, including the additional information. This automation could be used to receive documents up for approval.
Allow employees to focus on essential tasks and eliminate all routine activities by automating them. Don't let one employee's absence weaken the entire company process. Do successful business from home or on the move!
