(If not, Cast Iron is a great fit) Does the customer have a number of IT systems to keep in sync ( CRM, ERP, TLM, Xora) Does the system the customer is trying to integrate with already have another pre-built integration?

Objection Handling Objection Why can’t I custom code the integration between Xora and the applications I have? Response The Cast Iron Integration Platform is the only complete solution (see “Capabilities” table at left). Custom code does not deliver the quality, reusability and scalability for application integration. It is typically a people-intensive, one-off effort that is performed to meet a specific business need in a tight deadline. For example, Cast Iron’s proven low cost platform has enabled thousands of customer application integrations thus liberating the IT staff to focus on more strategic projects. Objection Why Cast Iron over Fusion, Boomi, Informatica, and Pervasive for integration to Xora? Response On Demand Services, including Boomi and others, don’t provide multiple deployment models, real-time process integration, and enterprise/midmarket connectivity, among many other capabilities (see “Capabilities” table at left). On Premise Tools, including Fusion, Pervasive, Informatica, and others, don’t provide multiple deployment models, real-time process integration, and user-interface (UI) mashups, among many other capabilities (see “Capabilities” table at left). Objection What is the cost of using Cast Iron? Response Cast Iron’s complete, proven, and trusted approach to Xora integration allow customers to reap dramatic results. Customer feedback indicates that Cast Iron delivers up to 50% time and cost reduction via total connectivity and up to 80% time and cost reduction via complete reusability. Exact pricing depends on the number and type of systems being integrated. Use Cases and Connectivity
