DENVER, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ToolWatch Corporation recently released its Application Programming Interface (API) to give users of ToolWatch Enterprise and other ToolWatch products access to their behind-the-scenes data. The API enables integration with clients' proprietary accounting and billing systems or with off-the-shelf packages. Now, ToolWatch customers have greater flexibility integrating ToolWatch data into other internal corporate software applications.
"It became clear to us that our clients needed a streamlined application to bridge Enterprise and their other software systems," said Don Kafka, president of ToolWatch. "With the ever-changing business landscape, it was important that we give our clients the flexibility to access ToolWatch data across all mediums and not limit them to the Enterprise desktop application."
The ToolWatch API is designed for mid-size to large companies with tens of thousands of tools to manage, complex accounting processes, and in-house programming staff that want to eliminate cumbersome manual processes that slow down communication among various in-house systems.
"Some clients have tens of thousands of records — cost centers, billing records, for example — within their ToolWatch database," said Jason Watts, a ToolWatch software developer. "Manually updating these records can be time consuming and error prone. The API opens the possibility for our customers to automate the maintenance of their data."
The API is now available to all ToolWatch customers, and functionalities can be customized depending on clients' needs. Current ToolWatch software users can request access to the API by calling ToolWatch at 1.800.676.4034. Typically, access rights can be granted within 24 hours.
