How to Integrate your Rental Software with Your Other Applications

By October 25, 2016Blog, Rental Software

While we think Wynne’s software should be the center of the universe, we know that sometimes rental companies use other software in their business. Companies might need to link to a corporate ERP for managing their diverse company, a telematics provider to track equipment or a CRM to manage sales. Wynne’s software was designed with integration capabilities in mind.

In today’s technology-driven world, most competitive companies use various best of breed applications. Unfortunately, most of these applications are not designed to work with one another right out of the box. Each application has its own programming language, database, and business logic and security layers. That makes sharing information between the various applications a challenge and requires some sort of translator.

One common way to integrate applications is to link at the data layer. Data Integration is critical because data needs to flow from one application to another in order for your business to see how well it is performing, spot problems and anomalies and to make decisions about how to maximize resources. Data integration between two applications may require some form of an application programming interface (API). The need for data integration is like needing an interpreter (or middleware) between two people who do not speak the same language.

Two commonly used application integration technologies are SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) or REST (Representational State Transfer). These web services allow different applications to talk to one another without human intervention. Web Services have become the technology of choice and the backbone to our modern device-driven world. Whether you use a mobile application, search engine or an enterprise system, chances are these common technologies play a role in integrating all your applications.

While there is no one universal data integration solution, at Wynne we provide our customers with robust and secure data integration solutions. We have a catalog of web services such as inventory transfer, sales order, and equipment information and more. Our customers can easily transfer data back and forth between Wynne and various other applications, so give us a call to discuss your integration needs.
