SYSTEMS
INTEGRATIONS

Appworks has helped customers with systems integrations
in a variety of industries and applications.

Emerging technologies can bring exciting new capabilities to your business, and keep you ahead of the curve. At the same time, they introduce challenges where newer systems aren’t always integrated into your overall ecosystem, including legacy systems.

This can lead to cost overruns and a drain on your valuable resources. Since its founding, Appworks has helped customers with systems integrations in a variety of industries and applications. Our unique experience in this space allows us to draw on lessons learned in one industry and apply them to another. Whether its hardware or software, or a combination of both, our systems integrations services ensure not only that your systems talk to each other, but that exciting new capabilities are uncovered that give your business an edge.

What are systems integrations?

As enterprises grow and acquire new technologies, the emerging landscape can often become difficult to manage. Systems integrations simply ensures that all of the technology you have invested in — whether its software products and platforms or highly specialized equipment and machinery — are plugged into your overall ecosystem. This means capabilities or data in one system can be taken advantage of by another system. Combining systems, particularly with legacy platforms such as ERP and CRM, means that critical data and capabilities you already invested in are no longer locked away in information silos, but can be exploited by newer systems and hardware, leading to exciting new capabilities. Integration projects often require expertise in several different types of systems. Appworks has experience across the range of systems and industries, from enterprise to the medical, transportation, logistics, and education fields.

Push the limits when you combine
hardware and software

Hardware system integrations offer a compelling opportunity to unlock new capabilities in your business, often in combination with other hardware and software solutions. While the possibilities are endless, it’s difficult to find experts who have experience in integrating the disparate pieces into a complete system. Appworks has worked on hardware integrations in a variety of industries, combined with our extensive software expertise, producing turnkey solutions that adhere to industry standards.

For example, Appworks worked with Personics Lab to develop a proprietary OS that integrated with hardware called “hChip” to allow for optimized acoustic experience with a range of applications in music fidelity, speech intelligibility, construction and industrial communications and more.

Unlock Your data for real-time insights

Data integration services unlock critical business data, often stored in legacy systems, and makes it available using industry-standard methods and service oriented architecture. This can include data stored in different formats and within different database management systems.

At Appworks, we have seen too many companies invest in data integration efforts at huge scales and cost. Our approach is different. We have worked with a variety of clients on data integration projects, but all with a common thread – a discrete and attainable outcome that drives value for your business. This approach requires experience in a range of disciplines, from data migration to building and deploying SOA-compliant services, all in compliance with industry standards. This kind of expertise can’t be taught or performed by technology “generalists.” At Appworks, we have the track record and deep expertise in a variety of technologies, and can apply lessons learned to every new project.

Appworks partnered with AAR, a leading provider of aviation services, to create a set of modern mobile apps for iPhone and iPad that integrates with a back-end facility management platform.

For the first time, those involved in the manufacturing of landing gear had access to real-time data on production across a range of facilities, leading to increased production levels.

API’s used smartly become the building
blocks of your business

API integrations are a powerful way of creating new capabilities and features by linking together systems, including legacy platforms. While the opportunities are unlimited, API integrations are often used in the mobile space, as well as for creating modern UI’s that take advantage of data and capabilities locked away in legacy platforms. The challenges in API integrations require extensive knowledge of systems and different types of technologies. Our experts have performed API integrations for a variety of clients, and are well versed in SOAP, REST, and XML-RPC, as well as common data exchange standards such as JSON.

Appworks partnered with Telemarket to free their salesforce from wasting time in an outdated CRM system.

Using API’s, a mobile app distills the most common salesforce interactions into a dead-simple interface, meaning sales reps can spend less time with data entry and distractions and more time selling.

Importantly, the solution did not mean purchasing a new CRM system, but sits on top of the existing system — a win win that derives value from the investment already made in a back-end system.

Your technology footprint should reflect
business strategy, not the other way around

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) takes a more holistic view of your disparate systems. It approaches your technology capabilities not from the standpoint of the vendors who provided them, but from the most vital needs of your own business. What was once a tangled mess of old and new systems, all existing as silos apart from each other, can become a seamlessly integrated whole, exchanging data freely and unleashing powerful new capabilities you never even knew existed.

Apart from technical know-how, Appworks starts any SOA plan as a strategic engagement, based on your own goals, your promises to your customers and other parties, and overall business imperatives to drive growth. An SOA strategy may draw on a number of different types of integrations, but mostly looks at an overall strategy for web services based on SOAP or WSDL. At Appworks, we can help you design and build a service oriented architecture that takes advantage of the latest technologies, while also respecting your business imperatives around governance, security and compliance with industry standards.

At Appworks, we partnered with a group of
physicians to develop an SOA solution that
revolutionizes medical diagnosis.

Using the power of the cameras everyone carries around in their pocket as part of their smartphone, we developed a way for patients to submit photos for review using a HIPPA compliant photo gateway. Photos are stored in the cloud and can be accessed by doctors at any time for easy access, without the need for making appointments days or weeks in advance. Analytics are built into the solution to provide granular insights into how patients use the solution, allowing for opportunities to tweak and expand the offering.
