What exactly is an open API platform and how does it benefit your staffing company, and solve those issues that come with stepping away from a one-size-fits-all approach and embracing multiple technologies?
API stands for application programming interface. In other words, it’s the framework that sets out how different programs can talk to one another or otherwise interact.
When you think about all of the various systems your company needs to meet the needs of both clients and your staff recruits, there are likely a lot of moving parts. You will need scheduling software, a payroll system, timesheet management, and client
relationship management, among others. If all of these different parts of the ecosystem are operating in isolation you have to do a lot of work to share the same information — hours worked, pay rates, etc. — with each different software
system, opening the doors to errors in data entry and ultimately taking up a lot of time and effort, which translates to higher costs.
An open API solves that problem simply, creating a cohesive experience for your own staff, for your clients, and for your workforce. It turns data entry, analysis, and internal processes into an efficient machine that practically fills in information
on its own, solving all of those data challenges with the central convenience of the NextCrew API.
