Streamline your processes with an API connection
Say you have a well-functioning website. You're happy with the system you have, but you want to further streamline your business processes. Or a business requirement comes up, requiring you to create a custom link or integration, in order to move forward with your business. How do you go about that?
What is a customised integration?
Simply put, a customised intergration or link is a software solution specific to your situation. This code can be simple, such as integrating an existing plug-in or link, to pull data from one database to another.
But a link can also be complex, such as a fully customised content management system or a custom-developed API (Application Programming Interface). Such integrations and links can take days or even weeks of development - as each integration is unique.
What are examples of API links?
Custom links and integrations are often needed to help your business connect your website, software, systems or platforms.
A good example is a custom integration between your website and your backend systems, such as your current CRM system, accounting package or ERP system.
If it often happens that an old ERP system running on an old server needs to connect to an online form so that users can easily submit tickets via the website, it is necessary to create an integration using an API link.
API connections and web shops
For webshops, it often happens that a connection to a logistics provider is required, or with an external stock system, accounting package or affiliate partner. Often, there are existing APIs that need to be linked to the website, and it is often necessary to create a custom API link.
What is the best solution for me?
As mentioned, every situation is unique - not only your business, but also your business processes, goals and budget.An automation using an API connection will in many cases bring concrete gains for your business. Not only in money, but also often in convenience, security and time.
You can strike the right blow with your business if you use an API connection in the right way for your business.
