Integration and API news for developers

One Connector, Two Connector, Three Connector, Four

16th May 2018

Not all integration requirements are the same.

It is easy to imagine A to B interconnectivity. “Take my contacts from my CRM and put them into my email application”, or alternatively, “take my transaction data from my ecommerce system and record them in my accounting system”. With a tool like Cyclr that is API Orchestration at its’ very simplest.

However sometimes, like the nursery rhyme, real life can be a little more complicated. And this is where Cyclr can help you push your imagination. We can help you orchestrate inter-connectivity and automations across multiple applications and APIs. Or in other words we can help you deliver real-life complexity in an automated form. Because life isn’t simple and the tasks that you may want to automate may often be the more time consumptive and multi-step tasks.

Our clients never cease to amaze us with the real life uses of Cyclr.

For example:

GDPR compliance – a one click query to look-up a client record across all the applications that an enterprise uses, such that a complete client record can be found (and subsequently deleted) across one workflow.


GDPR Compliance Workflow

E-commerce – take my transaction record, add it to my CRM, when transaction value greater than X in X time period update client status to VIP, remove from one email contact list and add to VIP contact list, send promotion.


eCommerce to CRM Workflow

Events – when a client registers on website, update CRM and update email application to ‘prospect’ list, check in event booking site and when client booked remove client from email ‘prospect’ list to email ‘attendee’ list, check against event registration software, when attends send text message via text message application saying ‘welcome’.


Event Organisation Workflow

We could literally go on and on.

The key point is that it can be complex. ‘API Orchestration’ can also mean conducting data across multiple applications to achieve one single commercial outcome. A little bit of work in automation of a process can save hours in real-life time.

Cyclr offers 100’s of different application connectors and also different logic steps that you can integrate into the templates you offer to your end users.

Specifically we offer:

  • ‘Wait until’ set a specific date for an action to happen
  • ‘Delay’ wait a specified duration of time (e.g. 15 mins) before performing the next action
  • ‘If’ – if this then do this, if not then do that

With the simple combination of the three logic steps above you can achieve a large number of real-life automations for clients.
