Aplos Software unveiled today its API, which will allow software providers who serve nonprofits and churches to connect to Aplos’ online nonprofit software and securely share data. Specifically, the API is designed to connect with software providers that offer donor management software, church management software, online donation platforms, or payroll software.
“We are excited that we are able to respond to the requests we have been receiving from other software providers that also serve nonprofits and churches,” said Tim Goetz, CPA and CEO of Aplos Software. “Our new API will open opportunities for them to strengthen their competitive advantage.”
Aplos has established itself as the leading provider of web-based nonprofit and church accounting software that is priced for small and mid-sized nonprofits. When Aplos customers authorize their account to be connected with an API partner software, certain data can be shared between the two programs.
For example, donor management or church management software can send Aplos a transaction to be posted in Aplos Accounting. Another common use is sending contribution data from donation software to Aplos Donations to create contribution statements, track donors, and automatically post all contributions in Aplos Accounting.
“We want nonprofits and churches to be successful which means having the best technology within reach to help them do it. The API will allow these organizations a convenient way to keep their data up to date across all of their platforms and reduce the amount of time required to manage their organization,” added Goetz.
