Point.io Launches APIflow for Data Access, Collaboration
Users can leverage APIflow to engage third-party developers to publish new applications that expand user choice and drive experiences through the API.Software developer Point.io, a specialist in application programming interface-as-a-service products, announced the launch of APIflow, an offering designed to enable secure data access, sharing and collaboration through APIs. APIflow enables core processes to be externalized through a single API that allows people to participate through Web, mobile or cloud applications. Externalized processes remain in-step with internal systems of record without the risks of exposing core systems to direct Internet traffic. Companies can leverage APIflow to engage third-party developers to publish new applications that expand user choice and drive experiences through the API. APIflow is currently available to organizations looking for a single, secure interface to all corporate data across all applications. The company’s first API-as-a-service was APIdoc, an API to provide connections to all file-sharing and storage technologies.
"APIflow is the fastest way for a company to join the API economy by monetizing internal processes in the market today," Tim Panagos, CTO of Point.io, said in a statement. "New customer acquisition and fulfillment are the most likely first use-cases for APIflow because they can drive new revenue. Developers can embed processes directly into their apps without shuffling prospects to a browser. Keeping the fulfillment process inside the app makes the experience natural and will result in increased conversion rates."
