ST. LOUIS, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Datix, a leading enterprise software consulting firm based in St. Louis, has long been an expert in software integrations. Unity is Datix’s pre-built application which seamlessly integrates Epicor ERP® with an array of systems, including CRM, eCommerce and most recently HubSpot Marketing Automation. In its latest development, Unity now supports REST API, a web service interface that delivers greater flexibility and simplifies software deployments. Unity will also continue to include SOAP functionality for businesses who employ Epicor 9 and other early versions.
An API, or application programming interface, uses protocols to enable software components to communicate. In other words, when a program requests data, the API receives that request and returns the information to the user. Robust API technology makes software more responsive and adaptable to growing business needs.
An Epicor Platinum Partner, Datix updated Unity in response to Epicor’s introduction of new REST API functionality. Epicor’s earlier ERP releases supported SOAP API. However, REST has become the standard for cloud software in recent years. To empower clients to stay ahead of industry trends, Epicor ERP 10 cloud solutions include out-of-the-box REST functionality.
REST rose to prominence because of its flexibility. SOAP uses more bandwidth and is governed by strict rules, making it more difficult to use and susceptible to errors. REST, on the other hand, is a light-weight platform that doesn’t follow rigid guidelines, making it easier to use and less prone to mistakes.
TJ McDowell, Datix’s Executive Vice President of Software Development, briefly explains the advantages of REST API: “By leveraging REST API, manufacturers and distributors can enjoy a more adaptable platform to streamline business processes. The better your API, the more responsive your software, and REST is the best API technology out there.”
By adapting Unity to support REST API, Datix is moving forward with its integration solutions. “Datix is committed to advancing its solutions in line with modern software developments,” claims Datix CEO Matt Schuval. “Now that Unity includes REST functionality, we can further streamline the deployment process and accelerate future changes to power our clients’ growth.”
Datix has long led the field in integration solutions. Unity seamlessly connects software into a single source of truth to drive business improvements and maximize the value of each client’s software investment. With the latest development of its Unity application, Datix is setting the bar even higher for ERP integrations and spearheading enterprise software innovation.
