API & Integration

Black Line’s Software Integration Services can connect two or more systems together and provide automated ways for data to move between multiple systems.

  • Data Synchronization: Data from one system is needed in another system to prevent double data entry or inaccurate repositories
  • Central Repositories: Consolidate data from multiple locations into one repository. Commonly used for Business Intelligence or decision support reasons.
  • Transaction Processing: When companies implement “best-of-breed”, or best niche system, often transactions from one system are needed in another system. Software Integration allows the business to eliminate manual, or cumbersome, processes that are prone to error or has a large volume of transactions.
  • Legacy System Integration: At times, legacy applications have technologies that are outdated, no longer supported or use non-standard technologies. In these situations, Software Integration builds “bridges” to these data stores and gain access to the information needed.
  • API Solutions: Providing a modern solution for vendors or customers to integrate with corporate data or systems through standard programming interfaces.

Why does this matter for your business?

Most modern business applications are built with native integration capabilities (APIs) to gain access to common system capabilities, data and business logic. As a software development provider, Black Line needs to possess the skills, experience and solutions to connect systems together for our Clients. This provides Black Line a competitive advantage by helping our clients achieve solutions that would normally not be automated losing their own market advantage.

What value does this add to your business?

  • Reduces effort
  • Reduces complexity
  • Decreases hassles
  • Time Savings
  • Provide access to information

What common problems does this solve for your business?

Manual data loading between systems, copy and paste, export/import of data between systems, using reports for workflow solutions, data accuracy issues, lack of control of data between systems

Why do you need a solution?

Communication between software systems (in an automated fashion), improves efficiency, reduce organizational friction, reduces frustration, improves operational effectiveness and increases the speed to access information. Modern Organizations leverage built-in API capabilities of the software toolsets to move data between systems or kick off automation. In some instances in makes sense to build your own API for Clients and Vendors to automate their workflow with your business data

What can you and your business expect from this service?

Business Leaders can expect:
  • Automated integrated solutions with appropriate controls, monitoring, error management and notification capabilities to ensure integrations operate as intended. Skill and experience to anticipate the traps and pitfalls related to integration between disparate systems.
End Users can expect:
  • They can expect solutions that reduce their need to manually process data between systems, copy and paste data, eliminate the responsibility to download, manipulate and import data between systems. Reduce the need for business people to operate as pseudo programmers having to troubleshoot import errors, data issues, corruption or other technical tasks they are not trained or skilled at

How does Black Line do it better?

Data integration and API development is a niche skillset that time, experience and numerous use cases are needed to hone best practices. Most competitors simply do not have the experience to adequately create the solutions necessary in a timely and stable manner. In addition, Black Line has a wide array of integration partners, the judgement to evaluate viability for your business and provide recommendations that truly align with an Organization’s objectives.
