With the help of API, data and information can be transferred automatically to other IT systems. This means that the same data basis is used across all systems. As a result, no information is lost as it moves between systems and departments. Automating this data exchange can also provide new insights into processes, products and customers affected.
Example: When an invoice is marked as paid in your accounting system, its payment status can be automatically updated in other systems (like Alasco) via API. This way, accountants working in the accounting system and project managers approving invoices in Alasco all know that the invoice was paid on time. By keeping the status consistent in both places, each department knows exactly what happened to the invoice and when, without any extra communication.
