inter-related activities
Explanation:
I think this is what is meant here.

Enterprise resource planning, customer relations management, and production are inter-related activities. The use of "transversales" would indicate that they "cross each other" (more than once).

Explanation:
Is what I would say - carried out alongside your main activity. Transversal or side activities sounds a bit unnatural in English.
