MemberClicks announces launch of open application programming interface (API) (print)
ATLANTA - DEC. 9, 2010 - MemberClicks, the foremost provider of association management software for small-staff associations, is excited to announce the launch of the new MemberClicks application programming interface (API) that allows developers to build applications that interface with MemberClicks services and data.
The open API provides customers an easy way to access and update membership and event data from their solution while eliminating the need for administrators to manually enter data. Clients relying on multiple data systems can now connect them directly to their MemberClicks product and have changes made in one system move seamlessly to the other.
The API also offers push notification services that can be triggered by member or administrative actions on an organization's website. Form submissions, changes made to user profiles and newly created events can be instantly sent out to external systems without additional work for the administrator.
Many clients have already taken advantage of the new API and have connected 3rd party tools to their MemberClicks solutions. A client registering vendors for an annual conference has used the form submission notification service to push booth selection information directly to an external event planning system. Other clients using secondary databases have used the API to automatically push membership data updates made via their websites to their back office data solutions. For any organization currently using disparate data systems, the new API provides an excellent avenue to connect them. This will simplify association operations, eliminate manual entry and ensure data integrity across all systems while saving time for the staff.
Created by MemberClicks' internal development team, the MemberClicks API is available free of charge to all MemberClicks clients. For more information and documentation, please contact the MemberClicks Help Team at [email protected].
