Announcing an Open API for Creating & Managing Event Apps
The days of manually copying content over from external content management systems are over! Today we’re announcing an Open API, a major step towards our vision of making engaging mobile apps accessible to all events. Now you can sync content from any external system and eliminate the overhead associated with creating and managing your apps. Here are a few ways to leverage the API:
- Event Planners – automatically sync content from any event management software or internal CMS system to create apps for all your events on demand.
- Associations – sync content from your association management system to add lists of members to your app, and pull other event related content automatically.
- Agencies – instantly create apps for all your clients by pulling existing event data and share live previews using Attendify Studio for iOS & Android, our instant preview tool for quick client approval.
- Partners – if you provide products and services to the event and association industries you can easily add mobile event apps to your mix by partnering with Attendify and leveraging your existing data to automate the creation and management of event apps.
How It Works:
The API integration will automatically keep your mobile event app in-sync with any external system. For every event app you need provide an API endpoint from which Attendify will fetch data, and create a link between that endpoint and a specific Attendify app in the developer dashboard. Attendify will request and fetch data and propagate it every 15 minutes.
