Why API Integration and Enterprise Mobility Are Good for Your Business
Technology has brought so many amazing new gadgets, as well as software and applications to go with these gizmos. Every day, new apps are created to simplify life for people around the world. It’s only natural that these apps have become staple for businesses worldwide.
Going paperless and using digital forms in the cloud with any smartphone or tablet, you can run a business, create jobs, and generate reports wherever, whenever. You can even combine two or more paperless solutions to improve productivity and increase output day in and day out. This is where API comes in.
API Integration & Enterprise Mobility
API or Application Program Interface is a set of routines, tools and protocols for building software applications. It is a way for software solutions to share data. According to the Formitize Development Team, “The API essentially provides a gateway for communication between two programs - the tools to enable the sharing of information and data. Formitize provides a really powerful mobile data collection solution and then the integration enables our client’s existing systems to receive and use the data we collect. In the same way, we can pull data from the clients existing systems to populate the forms - saving huge amounts of time and enhancing the complete process.”
API lets you integrate your paperless solution with other software that you are already using so that your systems become one seamless workflow that works together naturally. Formitize includes a full API enabling very powerful integrations with your existing systems and with more than two hundred other cloud-based solutions.
Integration means the sharing of data and processes between software solutions. For us, it means Formitize has the ability to pull information into our smart forms from your existing databases or systems and in the same way, push information we collect back into your existing systems. This is good news for your company’s enterprise mobility systems, as your mobile workforce becomes more efficient everyday using our amazing paperless software with other third-party solutions.
