Integrify Offers Web Services Flexibility with New SOAP Client Plugin
By Integrify Posted September 30, 2008
The SOAP Client Plugin allows customers to easily integrate calls to and receive data from external web services within the run-time execution of their process
Chicago, IL – October 1st, 2008 - Integrify Software, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Request Management (ERM) software, announced today the immediate availability of a new Plugin for its Enterprise Request Management System, Integrify 4.7. The SOAP Client Plugin will enable administrators to pass to and receive data from external web services within the run-time execution of a process.
Available in installed and hosted versions, Integrify 4.7 offers a 100% Web-based platform to centrally manage user requests from multiple locations, streamline workflow and operations, automate business processes, and improve the overall customer experience.
Plugins are extensions of Integrify's workflow engine that allow for in-process, bi-directional integration with external systems and work with the company's hosted service, Integrify OnDemand as well as its licensed version, Integrify OnPremise.
For instance, the SOAP Client Plugin can be configured to use the Windows Live Search web service hosted by Microsoft. The SOAP Client Plugin works as a task in a process where the data entered by a user in a form in a process is passed to the Windows Live Search web service as search terms to perform a search on the Internet. The SOAP Client Plugin posts the necessary parameters and retrieves any output (search results in this case) from the Windows Live Search web service. These search results can then be used in a task of the process (i.e. a Live Search Results Form). In this example, the routing definition of the process can be configured based on the results of the search data brought into the process through the SOAP Client Plugin.
"We are excited to be able to offer this new Plugin to our customers," said David Willsey, CEO, Integrify, "The SOAP Client Plugin will enable customers to easily pass and retrieve data from external web services, providing increased flexibility for customers that want to incorporate external data into their process definitions. Moreover, this is an example of how the Integrify Plug-in architecture allows Integrify to take advantage of existing web services to help customers achieve a workflow that best meets their needs.".
"Having tracked Integrify for the last five years, we have seen them frequently set the benchmark for on-demand BPM," Nathaniel Palmer, president at Transformation+Innovation. "This latest innovation reaffirms our assessment of Integrify as one of the leading lights in SaaS based process management."
The Integrify software solution is a flexible Enterprise Request Management (ERM) system that allows companies to automate requests and streamline processes. The software provides form creation, routing definition and tracking tools to those responsible for processing requests, minimizing data entry and simplifying requests for approval and fulfillment. Integrify is web-based, allowing for easy user accessibility and management of business processes. The solution eliminates problems typically related to labor-intensive processes such as manual paper handling and email requests, and can reduce costs per transaction 60 to 90 percent as opposed to paper-based processes.
The Integrify OnDemand solution provides the full functionality of Integrify via the Internet without the need to install and maintain software. It reduces the risk, cost and time when implementing a solution for process management. Instead of installing the software on its own site, a company can directly access the software, updates, and infrastructure, which are all maintained by Integrify, freeing up time and resources to focus on business.
