Improve Visitor Experiences with API Website Development

Website DeveloperOur experienced website developers will write code to connect, authenticate, and share data between the two website servers. The code, better known as an API (Application Programming Interface), allows your website to access data shared somewhere else on the internet.

For example, if you want to confirm your customer’s shipping address with the post office before an order is placed on your website, we will write code to connect to the United States Postal Service API to double check the entered address against the Postmaster database.

The majority of Fortune 500 companies allow access to their data through the use of an API. There are many different reasons to use an API, including the ability to login to a website using social media logins, confirming mailing addresses, verifying credit card payments, sending information to your CRM, and much more.

When writing APIs, our standard authentication process is OAuth 2.0. It is a framework that requires multiple layers of authentication and is more secure than older methods. The API code can be written to match the company’s language you are connecting to, and most are written in plain text, HTML, XML, JSON, and other programming languages.

Whether you need to confirm data with a vendor, push updates to another system, or authenticate users, our team of website developers will work with you to create an API that best meets your business needs.

Boost Your Website’s Efficiency
with Scheduled Tasks

Some large websites with a lot of data and traffic require tasks to be performed to keep the website running smoothly and quickly. Our website developers will write backend services to perform various scheduled tasks such as uploading new products, syncing existing product data, exporting data to a spreadsheet, archiving orders, purging data, etc.

Our scheduled tasks run after business hours and overnight to limit interruption or slow-down to your customers during normal hours. Scheduled tasks can be setup hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. Once the tasks are complete, the database queries can run faster with less data, thus improving the speed of the website. Whether you need recurring jobs, delayed jobs, or batches, our expert website developers are ready to help.

Well... it depends. To answer this question, you must take a look at your future business goals. Do you plan on growing your business? Do you plan on advertising products or services?

One of the only reasons you won’t need a website, is if you are planning on shutting down the company.
