Foodservice equipment quotation platform, AutoQuotes has launched the AQ Products API (application programming interface), for manufacturers and dealers to leverage AQ data across multiple platforms.
AQ’s product data is accessible to clients, to power e-commerce, ERP systems, and online sales channels as well as to simplify product data management and ensure accuracy across multiple platforms through one API.
The product database provides a gateway to AQ’s content core that publishes data and documentation for nearly 1m products listed across the North American and UK markets.
Customers can retrieve product information, including images, supporting documentation, pricing, product specs, and document links, provided in a file that can be uploaded to websites and ERP systems, said to streamline the process and minimise the time and effort required to maintain multiple sources of information.
With access to AQ’s standardised content, the API could help customers minimise the data management process, keeping data uniform across internal and external channels with less effort.
The Products API utilises standard interfaces, including Open API, which facilitates the import of the data into other systems. Once implemented, the Products API can be used to populate existing e-commerce platforms or to generate a new build and help customers implement and drive online sales.
Jim Contardi, CEO of AQ said: “AQ is committed to helping our customers grow their businesses and this is a critical step in enabling our customers to take advantage of AQ’s content core to improve the quality and accuracy of data on e-commerce sites and within ERPs.
“We are thrilled to be offering this game-changing access to AQ data at a time when efficiency matters more than ever.”
