An API (Application Programming Interface) is used to link one application to another by way of an interface that contains a number of Wisenet fields called ‘endpoints’. A developer can then use these endpoints in this interface to map certain Wisenet fields to fields in other systems. You can use it to seamlessly connect your training organisation applications to Wisenet.
Through the Wisenet API and with adequate development resources, you can connect your Wisenet account to anything. This provides endless possibilities for the capabilities of your systems. Many Wisenet customers have used the API for schools to integrate all training organisation applications and all systems in their business into one enterprise-wide platform, drastically reducing inefficiencies within their businesses. Have a look at the endpoints available in the API to see which fields can be mapped over to other systems.
While the API offers considerable possibilities from an integration perspective, it is worth noting that the API differs from other Wisenet Add-Ons in that it takes a considerable amount of development work from the customer's end. Before considering using the API, it is important to consider whether the necessary development resources are affordable and available to you.
For web developers looking to integrate Wisenet with current systems, please consult our Developer Resources in our resource center for more information.
