Small and medium businesses face the unique challenge of having to integrate dozens of powerful tools into a system that runs like a well-oiled machine.
From a business perspective, it is critical to have your systems automatically communicate.
This is where we come in. Jump to What Can a Business Do With APIs?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a tool that allows two systems to communicate with one another through code, allowing data to be accessed, inserted, updated, and deleted automagically.
Every time you use Facebook’s messenger app to send or receive a message or check the weather on your phone, you are using an API. MuleSoft has a great explanation here.
Today, APIs are where the magic happens.
APIs, business, and results
APIs are everywhere, the unsung hero supporting the modern world. Businesses leveraging them to their fullest are profiting greatly and saving an uncountable number of hours every year. These benefits are not just for tech giants, everyone can benefit from them.
We can automate almost all tedious, repetitive tasks without breaking the bank. From simple copy and pasting to following sophisticated logic, a little code can take care of it all. Streamlining your organization through integration will propel your efficiency to new heights.
Some areas ripe for automation are:
Leave boring repetitive tasks to the robots. Computers love tedious work such as copying data from one system to another, creating tasks or folders in one system when something happens in another. All of this can be automated!
Free up your employees to do the important work that only humans can. Employees and managers can concentrate on work that requires human interaction, such as sales, negotiations, and marketing. And even then, a big chunk of that can be automated.
What are some examples of systems that we can integrate?
Through API integration, a user could submit a form in one system, triggering a meeting to be scheduled, an invite sent, a room created in Zoom, a personalized confirmation email sent, and tasks created in a specific employees’ task management software of choice.
Your most painful accounting tasks can be automated too. Custom agreements made in a fraction of the time with highly dynamic terms, conditions, and offerings. Imagine a million tedious, repetitive tasks happening in the background, allowing you to focus on what is most important. The only limit is our imagination - and well, what the APIs in the software you use are capable of.
The trick is integrating them; getting them talking with each other. This is our area of expertise.
We live and breathe API integrations day in and day out so we know how to solve complex problems with effective and well-tested approaches.
