API’s are a powerful way to integrate FileMaker with other database systems into one seamless solution.
However API’s are not available on all database solutions, and each API has a slightly different protocol.
API stands for “application programming interface” and is a protocols for building and integrating application software.
Currently Dynamic Business Solutions has worked with several popular APIs including:
API’s are perfect for accounting integrations
As you may already know accounting is a complex system. Accounting procedures may also change often. Rather than building your own accounting system in FileMaker, we recommend integrating FileMaker to work with your accounting system. Quickbooks Intuit gets regular updates and is trust by millions of users. Integrating with QuickBooks means taking advantage of these changes with minimal or no changes to your solution.
With Quickbooks (www.intuit.com) the process can be done with ease using Quickbooks Desktop or Quickbooks Online version and a 3rd party software. The data can be stored in both QuickBooks and in FileMaker with no double entry.
By integrating your FileMaker and Quickbooks you will be reducing double entry, time wasted entering into multiple systems as well as reducing the opportunity for error. Updating Quickbooks is as easy as a push of a button.
Tired of being a slave to your Quickbooks data? Tired of fighting annual plugin costs. Tired of per-person licensing?
FileMaker now offers robust Quickbook Online API Integration. The API programming is free to use and required no Plug-Ins. All users have access and there is no per-person cost. All modules are seamlessly pushed or pulled, even updates all from your FileMaker database.
With this kind of power imagine the types of reports you will be able to create for your company.
