Working with the public sector requires a modern integration solution

The public sector is continually tasked with driving business efficiencies which frequently equates to digital transformation, a procedure which can necessitate changing systems, processes, and technology across the entire organization. If secure and reliable information flows are to be maintained during this transition, public sector suppliers need to be able to offer effective and reliable integration solutions.

A modern integration solution provides shorter lead times, less manual work, increased quality and more flexibility if you need to incorporate change. When working with the public sector, it is crucial that you have the ability to handle new procurements, rules and standards as they evolve over time.

Easier to meet new requirements

– By deploying Blue Integrator, we are now in a much better position to effectively manage new legal requirements and standards that directly impact our work with the public sector. The introduction of the PEPPOL BIS Billing 3 standard is a case in point where the integration engine has enabled us to seamlessly carry on work even though standards have been altered, comments Claes Rylander, E-Commerce Manager at Lyreco Nordic (formerly STAPLES).

– Traditionally in our operations, we have had to oversee numerous one to one integrations when interacting with customers, which as you can imagine can get complicated. With this old-fashioned technique of direct integration, managing the day-to-day work process becomes both costly and convoluted. We now have a modern integration solution that thankfully saves us both time and money. By using Blue Integrator and our existing SAP business system, we have reduced the number of integrations from around 2,000 to 50, Claes Rylander continues.

Blue Integrator provides real value in Lyreco Nordic’s ongoing work with the public sector. The Lyreco Group is the world’s largest supplier of office supplies.

Three reasons to use an integration engine:

  1. Meet the demands of a digital transformation strategy
    Suppliers and public enterprises acquire a state-of-the-art solution that facilitates consistent processes and secure information flows.
  2. Future proofing information flows
    Once the information flow is established, it is very easy to customize for future changes.
  3. Shorten the time from procurement to complete integration
    When the contract is won, there is an immediate pressure to deliver – a modern integration engine helps speed up that process.

”Since we’ve deployed Blue Integrator, we have gone from around 2,000 integrations to 50.”
