From HR to CRM to finance, Markas orchestrates and governs the data and processes of its hybrid application ecosystem to support business development

Business Goals

With over 35 years in business, family-run company Markas is a leader in the specialized services sector and offers an extensive network of integrated services within Italy, Austria, and Germany.

Pursuing continuous improvement in its quality of services, Markas today aims to open up to further sectors and extend its presence in Italy and Europe. The company is focused on its people, enhancing its employees’ skills to help fuel business growth.

Integration Challenges

HR is a key strategic focus area for Markas, including processes related to onboarding, training, contract management, payroll systems, and the propagation of the staff list to the HR management system and other systems.

But the company was dealing with a “spaghetti integration” scenario, with each piece of software communicating with another via ad hoc interfaces developed directly by partners, and a lot of manual data entry. This no longer offered the control and flexibility the company needed.

How Boomi Helped

Markas wanted to simplify integration by taking control of its processes. Mind-Mercatis, an expert partner in cloud integration, recommended Boomi.

After conducting a proof of concept (POC) involving four other software vendors, Markas selected the Boomi AtomSphere Platform: a fast, easy-to-use, cloud platform that would allow it to organize its connectors and flows independently, manage APIs, and have multiple people working simultaneously.

Thanks to Boomi’s intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface, Markas staff became fully familiar with the tool in just a few weeks.
