APIs continue to grow in popularity for companies looking for technology solutions. And there’s a good reason. APIs make it possible for organizations to share information across programs and streamline the lead acquisition process. There are many different types of APIs for operating systems, apps, and websites.
But as with any other web development project, there are things you need to ask upfront before the project starts. Not all web developers are created equally and finding the right partner to help your company create API integrations is a key component to your overall success.
