Daily API RoundUp: CubiCasa, Flowroute, Mapzen, ADP, IBM Watson

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

We've added eleven APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in categories such as Mapping, Payments, and Real Estate. Here's a summary of what is new.


Mapzen is an open source mapping project that provides mapping tools to developers and other users. The Mapzen Search service is powered by open data. It turns addresses and place names into geographic coordinates, and it turns geographic coordinates into addresses. The Mapzen Search API allows developers to integrate the search service so they may use the service directly.

We've categorized the Mapzen Search API under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Mapping APIs.

Flowroute is a certificated SIP telecoms provider. The Flowroute API provides developers with calling and messaging services, including phone numbers throughout North America, outbound and inbound calling and call masking capabilities, SMS, and related information services. This API is primarily categorized in the Voice category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Voice APIs.

CubiCasa is software for creating digital floor plans for real estate and design purposes. CubiCasa Partner API allows developers to handle the CubiCasa's Orders and Delivery status directly from their applications.

This API is listed under the Real Estate category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Real Estate APIs.


ACH Solutions is a division of UMS Banking and provides a secure, low cost alternative for web and mobile payment services. Implement Payments, accounting and banking into applications via an XML requester API. We've categorized the ACH Solutions API under the Payments category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Payments APIs.

IBM Watson Dialog API allows developers to manage conversations between virtual agents and users. These 'dialogs' enable apps to use natural language to respond to user questions, up-sell products and services, and to provide system walk-throughs to users. Developers can create these dialogs by making calls to the RESTful API. We've categorized the IBM Watson Dialog API under the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.

ADP provides payroll services to businesses in the U.S. As mentioned last week, several APIs for use with the service were added to ProgrammableWeb. Here are a few more:

ADP HR API is for Human Resource Management Services, including Corporate Directories, Personal Contacts, Worker Management, Work Assignments, and more.

ADP Time API brings developers tools for time and labor management services such as Time Entry, Time Notifications, and Time Off Requests and Approvals.

ADP Talent API offers tools for Talent Management Services. This includes Certifications, Performance Reviews, Educational Degrees, Licensing, Membership, and more.

ADP Staffing API brings developers tools related to the recruitment life-cycle. This includes Job Applications and Requisitions, on-boarding processes, and more.

ADP Tax API With this API, users can initiate a tax credit screening, find and view details of an existing screening, retrieve tax forms, and more.

We've categorized the ccc API under the Human Resources category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Human Resources APIs.
