APIs are ubiquitous these days – From entering your information when purchasing something online to mobile phones or e-business applications, all things come back to APIs.
With Papertrail this powerful technology enables interaction between systems, applications, mobile devices, and apps. But what is API integration, exactly?
API integration is a connection between two or more applications, via their APIs, that lets those systems exchange data between each other. Today, in our app-connected world, API integration is critical to all organizations.
APIs allow organizations to open a connection to the “outside world,” leading to creative innovations and assisting with digital transformation initiatives.
Having a seamless API integration platform allows businesses to leverage existing application functions with other systems and applications.
With an API, for example, a company database can be made available to other internal systems, instead of being isolated to one team.
Many companies provide APIs to their customers and partners to ensure that relevant data is shared seamlessly.
Papertrail has options available to our customers to allow seamless API integration. Contact our sales team for more information.
