You have heard of the word API, but not exactly sure what it is or how do you develop it? Be at ease. HELLO PEOPLE can help.
In simple terms, API (Application Programming Interface) allows applications to communicate with one another, without having to know how they are implemented. It is like a contract between two devices. If one party makes a specific request, the contract will inform the other party. After the other party gets informed, it will respond to the request.
There are two types of API integrations in simPRO:
Before making a decision, you must evaluate your requirements to determine the best option for your company. If required, we can help you with the analysis.

Challenge - simPRO is a one-stop business solution for service, project and maintenance management. Having separate job management and accounting software can break the end-to-end workflow of your business. If your business and financial data are not integrated, then you will be wasting a lot of your valuable time on extracting data, preparing information related to the accounting department. You will not have real-time visibility to cash-flow and profitability. The critical issues will be known after the event has occurred. Thus increasing the business and operational risks.
Solution - By integrating simPRO with accounting software you can connect your business data and financial data together. It enables an invoice generated in simPRO to be accessed directly by the accounting software. With the real-time visibility of cash-flow, you will be able to manage your finance accurately. You can save valuable time by eliminating duplicate data entry work in two separate software.
Challenge - Communication is the strongest driver in maintaining a loyal customer relationship. What information to send to which customer depends on their interest.
Let's take a scenario. You have decided to send a promotional email to specific customers who have used a specific service and provide them with a discount. You do not want to send this mail to all your customers on your list.
Solution - With simPRO and e-mail marketing app integration, you can target specific customers according to your requirement. By categorising customers in different groups will make the process seamless and efficient. You can sync the customers' details from simPRO and automatically create them in the email marketing app to create a targeted marketing campaign.
Challenge - Sales departments always require data from other departments. It can be related to either project detail, inventory details, marketing, and so on.
Let's see a scenario. You just converted the deal into a project and want to change project status on the system. If your job management and sales system are not connected, then the operation team will not have the visibility to the new project. You will have to share the information via email, causing duplicate entry, data being lost, and so on.
Solution - By bringing your sales and operations teams together can eradicate the issues stated above. Any changes in a project status can be notified to the operations team in real-time. Any information required by the sales team can be directly accessed from their own system.
The cost of integrating simPRO with another app depends on the scope of the project. The time and material (developers) required for the solution design and coding determine the price.
Once the high-level requirements are clear, we can provide an estimate or a fixed price quote for most API integration projects. Our mature internal processes and code repository means we can turn around projects faster, resulting in a lower price.
Developing an API does not mean it can be a one-off development cost. An API requires regular updates, upgrades, and maintenance. Therefore, it is vital to select a company that you can trust, have a solid track record and based in Australia.
Security is essential in any application. It is more crucial when it comes to API integration as data is frequently shared between different services. API security practices/standards are well defined for the developers. They make sure that the developed API will keep important credentials protected.
The answer resides in the complexity and requirements of the case. It might take a few days to months depending upon the project.
We do provide support for the maintenance of the system. You can discuss the plans with us.
When you have a new requirement or an update, we can discuss what is the best way of moving forward. We can review the estimated time for the new requirements which will vary depending upon the complexity.
