API is a phrase you might hear quite a lot; it means application programming interface. Basically, our developers work with you to provide an integration between our technology to your technology – your CRM or website for example, to allow you to view our data there rather than on the DataGardener platform.
This is something that could be used for customer onboarding, marketing or sales for example – whatever your requirement. We have accountants, fraud investigators and technology companies using this for a variety of reasons.
The definition of API according to the holy grail of information which is Wikipedia is as follows: An application programming interface (API) is a computing interface which defines interactions between multiple software intermediaries. It defines the kinds of calls or requests that can be made, how to make them, the data formats that should be used, the conventions to follow, etc. It can also provide extension mechanisms so that users can extend existing functionality in various ways and to varying degrees.
There will need to be some level of integration and technology work done between developers form our side – and yours. If you don’t have developers yourself, then we could potentially help so worth getting in touch.
Once the integration is done your system makes what is known as ‘a call’ where the data is retrieved from the DataGardener database and placed on to whatever system you have integrated. The real advantage hear is that the user – you – doesn’t have to look or navigate outside of your own system
