Under IRESS Open, there will be two types of integrations: a continuation of custom integrations and making standard integrations simpler and easier.
Standard integrations will make it simpler and easier for third-party applications to be available to clients and users through XPLAN and, over time, to more of our IRESS products. This will further open XPLAN and enable clients to determine what makes up their technology ecosystem.
This new approach means clients can connect XPLAN easily and directly to a third-party application by using an ‘app key’ or code.
Standard integrations facitlitate the transfer of data with the third-party application, rely on a client's permission and do not require product development by IRESS.
This means clients can allow third-party software providers direct access to integrate with an XPLAN site and, over time, more IRESS software.
A range of standard integrations are already available. There are also a number of additional third-party application vendors that have beenissued with app keys to use to develop integrations with XPLAN.
On custom integrations we work closely with third-party software providers to develop and embed functionality within the IRESS software.
We have a rich history of building custom integration with third-party providers such as SuiteBox for video conferencing through to large providers such as Microsoft, Google Maps and FujiXerox.
We will continue to partner with other providers to extend the capability available to our clients.
Activation of third-party application integrations, both custom and standard, are at the discretion of the client and site administrator.
