A new feature to enable partners and third party developers to integrate Ecologic features into their software
Many of the most exciting applications of cloud software don't require a human operating a web browser at all but instead involve computers talking directly with one another via application programming interfaces or 'APIs'. We have developed a set of APIs to enable partners and third party developers to integrate Ecologic features into their software.
The Notification API provides a one-way computer-to-computer interface to automatically notify partners and/or suppliers when specific events occur on the Ecologic platform.
Some use cases of the new Notification API include:
- automatically create a contact in your CRM when a user profile is created
- automatically generate project leads in your CRM tool when a project is created on the platform
Whereas the Notification API is one-way connection, the new Management API provides a more powerful two-way interface for our partners to directly query, create and update records in the Ecologic platform without using the web app.
Some key use cases of this new Management API include:
- creating new profiles in the Ecologic platform when a corresponding contact is created in your CRM or online lead generation form
- updating the status of projects when updates are made on external CRM software
- generating custom online dashboards of actions and impacts arising from the platform
We have developed a set of free Zapier integrations to make integrating your software as easy as possible. Using these integrations you can connect your existing software to Ecologic using Zapier's simple web app, avoiding the need for any software programming.
Using these new tools you can already integrate Ecologic with a wide range of CRM tools including Salesforce, Hubspot, Agile CRM, Zoho CRM, Streak, Pipedrive, Insightly and many others.
You can also integrate with a range of lead generation tools including Facebook Lead Ads, Google Forms, Typeform, WPForms and many others.
You can also generate realtime notifications in your communication tools including Slack, Microsoft Teams, Facebook Workplace and many others.
We encourage third party developers to get creative and develop new exciting applications of our platform. Further technical details are provided in the Developer Docs.
