OperationsCommander (OPS-COM) has made APIs (Application Programming Interface) available that allow for authenticated third-parties to access and manipulate data in OPS-COM as needed. This enables the accomplishment of specific functions, such as the ability to add valid permits from pay-and-display machines.
What is an API?
APIs, or "Application Programming Interfaces," are specially-designed channels for communication between software systems. Essentially, they give programmers the ability to connect your custom software application to an external system, whether it is running within your office space or out in the cloud.
When you have multiple software systems within your business, it can require a lot of duplicate data entry, which costs you time and money. The API integration project aims to save you money by reducing excess data entry by making it easy for your staff to maintain multiple databases from a single location.
Vendors program APIs into their software to allow external developers to access and manipulate their data. The third-party integration project aims to utilize these systems to eliminate excess data entry and provide new features to the software.
Please note this documentation is specific to APIs we have developed for third-parties to connect to OPS-COM.
We also offer API integration for other third-party hardware and software vendors.
