Businesses always look for workflow solutions that optimize their back-office operations. However, multiple platforms actually reduce operational efficiency. This is where integration plays a crucial role. Integration helps in increased conversion rates, administrative savings, and customer self-service options.
What is NetSuite Integration?
NetSuite is #1 cloud-based ERP solution. It can streamline various processes of a company including financials, revenue, inventory management, order management, and billing.
This cloud ERP allows integration of multiple platforms that comply with the API of NetSuite. Netsuite can easily connect with legacy systems, on-premise systems, and third-party applications like Salesforce and Zendesk.
Need for Application Program Interfaces (APIs)
Application Program Interfaces (APIs) are the building block of integrations. It helps bridge the communication gap between two platforms - meaning, when two independent applications need to talk to each other, they use APIs. During integration, NetSuite APIs seamlessly connect with other legacy systems or third-party applications and make data transfer possible.
