NORWALK, Conn. , March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — etouches is pleased to announce its next generation release of its API (application programming interface) of its award-winning event management software platform. The new version of the API was released along with a multitude of new enhanced features for the popular eReg and eSocial modules and the integration of partner PR Newswire’s iReach content distribution tools into the etouches' administrative interface.
“Expanding our API has been 100% driven by partner demand to create integrations between different information technologies,” explained Leonora Valvo, visionary founder and CEO of etouches. “Our next generation API allows our clients to build their own technology ecosystem to tie together their various customer relationship, marketing automation, social networking and mobile platforms. The new and improved API allows our partners to connect their technology platforms to etouches with minimal effort and maximizes the value of event data usage for our clients.”
Neil Keefe , Vice President of Product Development led the re-design efforts of the new API. “We wanted to achieve two key goals with this next generation: to rebuild the inner workings of the API to increase efficiency and extendibility, and to offer data output in both XML and JSON. The next generation of our API is much more extensible and standardized allowing organizations to interface their applications to more etouches in a much more dynamic way.”
Several partners including mobile application providers EventMobi and QuickMobile, as well as private social networking provider, Pathable, have already utilized the new API to pass data between the etouches event system and their applications.
“We firmly understand that any event management system is just one part of an organization's overall information management infrastructure,” stated Valvo. “Our extended APIs allow attendee event data to be easily extracted, delivered and combined with other organizational data leading to a more comprehensive customer profile.” Leonora Valvo concluded, “Event data is the next big data; it provides incredible behavioral insight into customers adding to an organization's predictive capabilities.”
