Is the amount of your company data continually growing and your IT infrastructure can’t keep up? Are legacy systems and software harder to maintain, update and integrate with new systems? Are the number of sites, users, devices increasing or are your systems scalable as you gain new projects or customers? Are you able to share data across all aspects of your company (finance, inventory, production, shipping) easily? Can you easily report on compliance and quality control?
