The Value of Your B2B Integration Support Team
Once a B2B integration solution project is completed, the whole team breathes a sigh of relief. In many cases, however, the real work has only just begun.
Now that your systems are live, ongoing B2B support is needed to make sure all tasks perform normally and issues are resolved quickly. There are scheduled tasks, file transfers, backend system connectivity, and other processes that must run as planned – otherwise, the business could lose transactions, lose productivity, and lose sales.
Therefore, your support team must be proficient in a wide variety of tasks. However, you may find your staff is stretched a bit too thin to do so. Or perhaps they simply lack the experience and could use a little help from trained professionals—for at least the short term. Either way, we’re here to help.
