The Fast Connector Framework, is a new toolkit for Scribe Online’s integration platform as a service (iPaaS) offering, that aims to make it easy to connect software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers to web applications.
“The explosion of cloud applications has created an intense need for integration, and SaaS providers are racing to keep up,” said Shawn McGowan, CEO, Scribe Software. “Now more than ever, every SaaS provider needs a scalable, cost-effective way to add the custom integrations their customers are demanding – the Fast Connector Framework was created with this philosophy in mind.”
The Fast Connector Framework extends the capabilities of Scribe Online’s existing Connector Development Kit (CDK) and provides integration for web applications and RESTful APIs. The framework acts as an onramp to the Scribe Online Connector Marketplace, allowing SaaS providers in Scribe’s SaaS Provider Partner Program to build a single connection between their application and Scribe Online, which gives them instant connectivity to every other application already in the marketplace.
Applications in the marketplace include leading CRM systems, ERP systems, marketing automation systems, data enrichment services and collaboration software including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Eloqua, ExactTarget, HubSpot, Intacct, Marketo, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics AX, NetSuite, ON24, Silverpop and dozens of other applications.
Key benefits of the new framework include the following:
- After a one-time development project, SaaS providers can offer customers custom integrations to any business application in the Scribe Online Connector Marketplace.
- A simple front-end allows non-technical users – including business analysts – to add new applications to the Scribe Online Connector Marketplace and create custom integrations for their customers.
“Scribe Online and the platform’s CDK were built from the ground up to make integration as easy as possible,” continued McGowan. “Our new framework is the next logical step in advancing open, easy connectivity in the cloud.”
The Fast Connector Framework is already in use internally via Scribe Labs, where Scribe employees are creating connectors to meet customer needs in real time.
