How to Improve Application and Trading Partner Onboarding
Business growth depends on the ability and agility to accommodate changing ecosystem dynamics, and that entails signing new partners and deploying new applications to keep up. But slow ecosystem onboarding processes will hinder the pace of that growth.
So, what does it take to do better onboarding? In short, it takes intelligent automation.
When businesses can automate the tedious, often manual onboarding tasks – configuring partner profiles, building new maps, coding and testing new app integrations, etc. – they reduce the heavy lifting and drastically expedite the process. That means they can more quickly add new partners and applications and deploy products and services with ease.
Sounds great, right? But considering the sheer number of technologies, formats, and protocols a business must support to onboard each customer, supplier, and partner, it’s nearly impossible to automate all that efficiently. That’s why it takes technology, and more specifically, integration technology.
Advanced integration solutions simplify trading partner onboarding and the IT application onboarding process because they provide all the capabilities you need to eliminate the manual intervention, including:
Support for multiple secure protocols
Reusable project templates
Pre-built application connectors
Comprehensive visibility tools
