Maintenance costs money, and your accounting folks work hard to stay on top of the finances—from purchasing and inventory to payroll and capital expenditures.
While MPulse CMMS software holds clear advantages for the maintenance team, your accounting department can also benefit.
And, expanding software across departments is probably easier than you think.
How Can I Expand MPulse to My Accounting Department?
New data integration tools make integrating software across departments possible for a CMMS to share and receive data with other applications. Now you can easily link MPulse with other systems, including ERP and accounting software, and more.
Our DataLink Integration Adapter enables your MPulse administrator or local IT team to quickly and easily move data in and out of MPulse using a familiar, intuitive interface. MPulse can easily exchange data with any Excel, .txt, .csv, SQL Server, or XML Web Services data store. You can map and schedule data transfers and from numerous data sources outside the application.
You can integrate MPulse with other software in four different ways…
- Import data to MPulse from files, databases, or other applications
- Export data from MPulse to other applications, files, or databases
- Schedule imports and exports based on times or file changes
- Save unlimited “mapping profiles” to your data sources and targets
The Growing Importance Of Data Integration Between Accounting and Maintenance
The maintenance and accounting departments interact constantly. As a result, tight integration between MPulse and your accounting applications and data stores will do more than reduce hassle. You’ll also enjoy these benefits…
- Fewer errors due to manual data entry
- Reduced data input redundancy
- Faster response times to maintenance problems
- Near real-time monitoring of critical data
- The ability to grow with your company’s changing technologies
With that increased capability comes increased opportunity to improve organizational performance in both departments—while also improving financial planning and reporting structures.
Importance of Collaborative Projects Between Maintenance and Accounting
Expanding software across departments enables both your maintenance and your accounting teams to benefit from the ability to collaborate.
Both departments will benefit from easy access to data to make decisions. Large businesses have been using data-driven management for decades, but now it’s easy for smaller organizations to jump on the data train with software integration tools.
Whether your organization is small or large, MPulse can help you integrate software across departments without expensive IT consultants or programming experience.
