TribeHR, a software-as-a-service human resources solution, is bringing powerful API integration into the HR industry on multiple fronts. TribeHR co-founder Joseph Fung explained to us at SWSXi how APIs fit into the company's overall strategy:
Many of us have a love/hate relationship with appointment reminders. Maybe the least annoying notification is a text message, and it's also the easiest. The Twilio REST API lets you create intelligent reminders, and you can also benefit from simple integration with your CRM and reservation systems.
FullContact has announced the CardShark API. The CardShark API allows users to "to send images of business cards to FullContact, and...receive back a response containing transcribed structured contact data." The advantage the API method of optical character recognition over competitors lies in the ability to send contacts to devices and applications beyond the device that captured the initial picture.
