API Credentials

API, or Application Program Interface, is coding that allows communication between two applications or interfaces.

APIs can play an important role in improving any business model, with a whole range of advantages for companies that embrace such automation.

Our tried and tested API credentials allow us to communicate efficiently and securely with your platforms though API calls. In addition to direct integrations with various store platforms our API is open. This means that even if you do not have a store or platform that we can directly integrate with, you may have the option to do so on your own and tailor a direct connection with 3PL. We simply provide you or your web developers with our API credentials and off you go.

The advantages of using API to share data is far reaching and includes

  • Automation: with APIs, computers rather than people can manage the work. Through APIs, agencies can update work flows to make them quicker and more productive.
  • Application: because APIs can access the app components, the delivery of services and information is more flexible.
  • More scope: with an API an application layer can be created which can be used to distribute information and services to new audiences which can be personalized to create custom user experiences.
  • New data available: an API allows all of the information generated at the government level to be available to every citizen, not just a select few.
  • Efficiency: when access is provided to an API, the content generated can be published automatically and is available for every channel. It allows it to be shared and distributed more easily.
  • Integration: APIs allow content to be embedded from any site or application more easily. This guarantees more fluid information delivery and an integrated user experience.
  • Personalisation: through APIs any user or company can customize the content and services that they use the most.
  • Adaptation: needs change over time and APIs help to anticipate changes. When working with this technology, data migration is supported better, and the information is reviewed more closely. In short, APIs make service provision more flexible.

Remember – API isn't ground breaking technology and you don`t have to be a technical whizz to pursue such automation. Sharing information through API is becoming more common place as more and more businesses realise the benefits of automation and real time.
