    SSA Global Forms a Strategic Unit with an Extended-ERP Savvy
Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations

by P.J. Jakovljevic
While the Strategic Unit team formation should help SSA Global to figure out how to fully integrate organizational structure where employees are best integrated, service offerings best coordinated and cross-selling opportunities best tracked and pursued, the vendor must continue to clarify the position and integration of competing and complementary products in its fold, which gets complicated with every new addition to the family.

Customer Self Service Essentials

Web self-service technologies are working their way into today's enterprises and are demonstrating that integrating self-service into support practices has much to offer. The potential for cost savings and increased employee efficiency make Web self-service an attractive option to consider. Yet, as the enterprise evolves, self-service is destined to become more of a necessity than an option. For banks, brokerage houses and other financial institutions, Web self-service has come to be expected by customers. Clients crave 24x7 access to account information and value the convenience of being able to locate information on their own. As more customers turn to the Web to conduct business, that expectation will expand rapidly to include other industries, making Web self-service a critical component of competitive customer service strategy.
