The service provides a hosted platform for configurable, standards-compliant financial accounting functions with capabilities for integration with Salesforce. Configuration options allow designation of custom datatypes suited to specific needs. Context groupings gather financial data related to specific companies or other organizational units.
API methods support standard accounting functions such as defining a chart of accounts and posting accounts payable and accounts receivable transactions. General ledger and journal entries accommodate sales and purchases, invoicing and payment processing, and all related accounting activities.
Of the many APIs we published this week, thirteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those thirteen, which included the Embarke API.

FinancialForce.com, focused on building cloud based business applications on the Force.com platform, has released an API for its accounting application (i.e. The FinancialForce Accounting API). The API gives access to the entire suite of accounting tools available through the accounting platform (e.g. cash management, reporting and dashboards, ordering and billing, etc.). Although FinancialForce.com built the application with Force.com, and the target audience began with Force.com developers, the application has been integrated with many platforms and APIs (e.g. Google Apps, Basecamp, Facebook, PayPal, etc.)
