Many businesses are now integrating multiple systems into their web applications. For example, an e-commerce site might be integrated with offline accounting software, CRM system or an inventory database. There is hardly a single web development project today that doesn’t involve some kind of 3rd party vendor integration… this could be adding the latest must-have features, ensuring a website has comprehensive analytics or integrating business process applications. At SEO Nuts, our software specialists can implement 3rd party API software into a client’s business web application to provide communication between the software and a 3rd party.
APIs allow businesses to integrate two platforms so that they communicate together. A streamlined business process is then created. This can help to enhance, for example, customer services thereby growing the businesses. SEO Nuts can integrate existing, off-the-shelf APIs or create a bespoke API application from scratch. APIs can also help with sharing of data. For example, financial data could be linked to a software to facilitate secure, real-time transfer of data to these applications.
We have many years experience integrating websites with a wide range of 3rd party services including Order Processing Systems, CRM’s, Accounts Solutions, Gateways, Databases and Networks. Understanding the technical aspects of our clients’ business is key to a successful website integration project. We work alongside clients to produce detailed maps of how the integration will be organised.
There are a number of different methods we use to integrate websites with other platforms including the latest API technologies, common data formats such as CSV, SQL, JSON & XML and website-embedded solutions utilising iFrames.
