Working Day  Suite REST API: Officially Open to Customers

Working Day Suite REST API: Officially Open to Customers

A new REST API with a dedicated customers site and support community launches today

 

A robust ecosystem of Mobile Workforce Management Apps to improve the field team productivity depends on customers’ ability to  to get the most out of the data obtained during the workday and incorporate them into their internal processes. This is why I’m excited to announce that we have released our new WDS RESTful API, available today. We developed this API in order to offer customers a modern, easy-to-use integration method that allows for more flexibility and scalability, and increases application performance.

The feedback on this API from our customers who are participating in our beta program has been enthusiastic, especially for the clear and complete documentation we’ve provided that makes it easy to work with this API. The beta participants have written custom integrations between Working Day Suite and other applications to do some really exciting things. So far, our customers have created integrations to get Tracker locations, Forms reports, Schedule Task for Planners and Get Orders details on-the-go.
