System integration in Berkshire
Integrating information from different sources is essential to running your business effectively. We build solutions that integrate 3rd party information and functionality to leverage maximum value from the sum of all the parts. In recent years there has been a significant increase in the use of API technology. The term API stands for 'Application programming interface' which is a set of clearly defined data structures and methods of communication between various software components.
Companies make some parts of their software accessible to external developers so that they can integrate its data with other applications. The number of possible system integrations are huge, but here is a small list of examples where by using a third-party API, we can integrate external information into your application:
We can integrate an online payment gateway into your application and allow your visitors to purchase your products safely. We can also integrate quoting, booking, ordering and ticketing systems into your application along with stock management, inventory etc.
We can integrate an accounting system into your application. It can be fully automated or semi automated, depending on your requirements and budgets. The functionality could include invoicing, receipts, tax calculations, deposit handling and financial reporting.
Social networks and reviews
We can integrate social network feeds and functionality into your application. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter etc. Your potential clients can read some of your social network posts from within your spplication so they can easily share it with their network using their own accounts. User-generated ratings & reviews are often integrated into applications to increase brand reliability and trust.
We can integrate email marketing systems into your application, so your email campaigns and lead generation can be streamlined from within your centrlised application solution.
We can integrate your CRM (Customer Relationship Management) functionality into your business application so that you can have one centrlised system that deals with the management of your organisation's relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers.
If it's got an API, we can integrate it
We can integrate any systems that make their API available to developers. This could be in any sector or market. If you are not sure if you are not sure whether an API is available for your preferred software, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can research it for you.
How we can help?
We have over 30 years of experience helping clients in and around Berkshire improve the efficiency & profitability of their business processes.
Whether you already have a digital strategy in place or you would like us to help you set it up, we will plan, design and build bespoke web-based solutions that will implement your strategy according to your business requirements, priorities and available budgets.
We start by conducting a discovery workshop in the client's premises where we observe the current flow of processes used internally by your staff and externally by your customers. We look at the different responsibilities of your team members and their business roles. We find out what are the strength and weakness points within your current process. We spend time speaking to stakeholders and learn as much as we can about immediate and future business objectives.
We develop smart business management systems that are built around people and processes, each application is custom-tailored to the unique requirements of the business. Those systems are often built in a modular and staged way to minimise disruption and allow staff and customers to get used to new processes, it also allows your team to collate valuable and constructive feedback which can be implemented into next phases.
Our systems are not fixed in time, they are built to grow with you and your business requirements.
