Whether we're looking at ways to save on a new system we are building for you, or whether we're evaluating how to reduce costs on legacy systems or internal workflows, APIs are good candidates for saving you money.
Build more technology infrastructure faster by leveraging targeted API services. There are companies whose entire business is providing the highest quality version of a building block you might need. Use their system at a fraction of the cost so your resources can keep driving your big picture goals.
Perhaps you want to engage a community by offering elements of your data through an API. Or, maybe you want to further a relationship with a partner company by creating a data flow between both sides. There are numerous strategic opportunities when it comes to how to use APIs in the context of business development.

Sorting through who does what, and who does what well is an undertaking of its own. Luckily Velociraster lives in this world daily and can help guide selection of API providers.
