As an extension to the printIQ Core, we offer our Connect Modules, a range of optional tools that are designed to connect your business to a plethora of options. We have 4 categories in the “connect” range comprised of: API, Automate, Pre-Press, & VDP.
IQconnect - API
The IQconnect-API module is a series of comprehensive API’s that can expose many of the workflows in printIQ allowing you to produce your own custom printIQ integrations. It can extend your product offering beyond your own factory walls and into the plants of other printIQ users, connect directly with third party web applications or provide self‑contained widgets that allow you all the features of the printIQ simplified ordering process directly on your SEO website.
IQconnect-API — Integrate
Connects you to CRM, EDM and your customer database
Integrate is a series of fully documented and comprehensive API’s, that expose many of the workflows in printIQ. Essentially Integrate is the key to the toolkit, which combined with the provided documentation, allows you to produce your custom integration requirements. We have built API touchpoints that support both customer and pipeline updates to both Hubspot and Zoho. We generally work with an integrator who specializes in Hubspot or Zoho. It allows you the flexibility to engage an integrator who has pre-built integrations or alternatively, you can use your own resource to complete this task. Finally, some of our API’s are published in Zapier so that you can use a third‑party tool to simplify the integration. Zapier lets you connect to the web apps that you use, making it easier to automate tedious tasks.
