  5. 5. AgendaAgendaAPI| What does it mean? Application Programming Interface. Allowing one application (i.e. administrate) to talk to another application (e.g. your website) • They expose some of an application’s internal functions and data to the outside world (in a controlled fashion!) • There are many metaphors that help explain this such as: • a bridge between IT systems • a window into your data stored in the cloud • This workshop is about the potential to use your business data (stored in Administrate) to enhance the customer experience on your website • The principle can be applied to websites, extranets or intranets
  6. 6. AgendaAgendaTHE API| When should I use it? Some common challenges – sound familiar? • I need to make sure that our website and Administrate course & event data are automatically in sync without compromising how things look • I need to allow our customers to browse & book lots of different courses with different delegates and checkout securely in a single action • I need to allow customers to browse my courses via a highly intuitive calendar interface with custom filters for our course categories • I need to allow my customers to pay for our courses by instalment • I need to allow my employees to view an overall resource schedule for trainers, rooms and equipment to make our operations simpler
  7. 7. AgendaAgendaTHE API| When should I use it? Some common challenges – sound familiar? • My customers often want to book places on courses before they have all their delegate details confirmed • I want to capture contact details directly into the CRM in return for value add content • I need to have web orders created in a specific step of my sales workflow • New customer / Existing account • I don’t want customers to be able to book places on an event when it is full
