There are various technical options for developing an API. Whether it concerns REST, SOAP or GraphQL, we have extensive experience in it. On the one hand, in developing an internal API with your software. On the other hand, implementing Partner APIs to link your software to software from other suppliers or partners.
With a proprietary API or the implementation of partner APIs, complex solutions can be realized. Curious about the kinds of API & Integration solutions we have experience with?
API connection with accounting packages
A frequently asked question to us is whether it is possible to link software to a new accounting
program. By creating an API link between our own custom tailor-made software and a standard
accounting solution, we can, for example, use Master data that is present in the accounting package. This
way we prevent double administration of data. In addition, we can also feed back order or stock information
via such links, so that the information is up-to-date and the regular invoicing process can be followed.
Within the accounting world, we have experience with, among others, Exact, Simplicate, and AccountView.
For e-commerce platforms, we use Partner APIs to unlock certain functionalities. This includes APIs for supporting payments such as Mollie, providing shipping/carrier information with OceanInsights, MyParcel, and Sendcloud, and sending transactional emails with MailGun.
An API, API integration or API connection can often be used to enrich data. This ensures that data can be provided with additional properties to make it more usable for a customer's desired purpose. These can be public, free APIs or APIs to which you subscribe to part of the data. For example, X/Y coordinates can be searched for at locations, you can retrieve cadastral information or stock information can be retrieved from a supplier to keep your own stocks up to date. Whatever you think of it, there is an API for it. Is there no API yet? Then we can develop an API that suits your needs.
Before you can make use of your data, it needs to be visible somewhere, such as in PowerBI. We are not the ones who set up or visualize your PowerBI dashboard, but we are the team that connects your data sources and enriches them with missing information, placing it in a PowerBI-ready environment. After that, you can get started with your own PowerBI!
At SST, we are not SAP specialists, but we have regularly collaborated with SAP teams to set up two-way integrations. This was done, among other things, in a production environment where SAP was responsible for the complete order and inventory management, and the Manufacturing Execution System (developed by us) received the orders to be produced in the factory through this integration. Once the orders were processed by the MES, the software then transferred them back to SAP for shipping and payment.
What an API can do for you
Thanks to our extensive experience, we can offer your organization valuable advice on what is possible with
internal APIs and we can carry out or connect your API integration. This enables us to enrich your
data. But we can also develop an API if it does not yet exist.
