Intégration d’InspectionSite par API
An application programming interface (API) is an informatic tool, part and parcel of almost everything in the digital world.
It is a communication method that enables interaction between data, applications, and devices. It delivers data and facilitates connectivity between programs which use different languages. Highly widespread in many industries, API is also used in various inspection contexts. It allows a cloud based Platform, which collects data sent by inspectors, to easily communicate with many company management systems and aquire data also from other IT detection tools using innovative technologies.
What is an API?
API is a programming tool which makes interaction between softwares and platforms possible, otherwise incompatible. An API, therefore, is like an interpreter that allows computer systems speaking different languages to understand and communicate each other.
How does a management software integration with InspectionSite through API work?
InspectionSite application sends collected data to the Cloud which stores them. If the system is integrated with API, this act as an intermediary between the Cloud platform and the company management software, translating the language used by the Cloud into that used by the management system. Thus, thanks to this intermediation, the second one can fastly acquire information stored in the Cloud platform.
