This is the final post in our OS blog 2.0 series highlighting the “ARM ecosystem”—what it is, how it works, and how ARM businesses can benefit by adopting this approach.
How an ARM Ecosystem Enables Consumer- and Compliance-Friendly Collections
In an ARM ecosystem, all parts are designed from their inception to work together seamlessly. They’re governed by the same brain, and they operate from a single shared database and interface. Every part of the ecosystem responds to any change or event, no matter where in the system it occurs. A built-in software development toolkit allows businesses to add fields, workflows, and other customizations as needed without disrupting or disabling the ecosystem environment.
5 Ways the ARM Ecosystem Can Help You Compete to Win
A unified, single-vendor, easily maintained ARM ecosystem will free your IT personnel to devote more of their time to high-value initiatives. It will also mean less effort for your collectors, who would otherwise need to switch between platforms and reconcile data sets. In addition, your team will be able to access and leverage data and analytics with incredible ease and speed.
