Product Spotlight: Open APIs
Here at PropertyVista, we play well with others! All of our web-based property management software products feature open APIs. Some customers use our products as a standalone, but others like to integrate our SaaS products with software they use everyday, like Yardi. An open API means that now your data isn’t “siloed” – an open API lets applications access, communicate and mine information for better business insights.
What’s an API?
An API is an interface implemented by a software program, which enables it to interact with other software. It facilitates interaction between different software programs similar to the way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers.
The Benefits of Open APIs
The benefits of open APIs are numerous:
- The free flow of information
- Your data is YOUR data
- Seamless integration with other software
- Better communication
Innovation & Collaboration
An open API helps reduce the fragmentation of your data and your business because you can now integrate PropertyVista products with any industry software with no integration fees. Because an open API gives users access to the open content data, it allows for more collaboration between solutions. In short, it’s a more effective, productive and efficient way of working.
No matter what software solutions are part of your everyday workday, PropertyVista’s open APIs mean that your data can integrate seamlessly, whether it is tenant data, property data, resident AR transactions, leads, maintenance work orders, lease and screening data.
This is just a peek into our APIs – expect to learn more in the coming months!
