Application Program Interfaces or API’s are something that a non-tech person may not understand. But if you sit down and do some research, there’s a big benefit to utilizing API’s. It commonly allows you to be more productive with the scheduling and maintenance of your fleet. Say you run a construction company and base your employees pay on their hours worked onsite. You run two separate platforms; platform ‘A’ that collects payroll data for your employees, and platform ‘B’ which is a GPS solution calculating employees time at the site. Running two platforms and having to manually combine the information is time consuming and a hassle. Instead, why not have an API? It collects whatever data you need and feeds it through to your software solution. No need for you to manually gather data from each platform, the API does it right for you. So you’ll be able to automatically send your employees pay by just managing one platform.
In summary API’s allow programs to send information from one program to another. So why not take the hassle out of your business. Use API’s today and make managing your business from one single platform a breeze!
