Using data smarter

Hardcat recognises that an entire fixed asset management solution is often comprised of lots of different systems and we are dedicated to ensuring that the user experience is seamless, regardless of the asset management systems involved.

Hardcat therefore embraces system interoperability which we achieve by a suite of powerful tools and techniques.

Out of the box, Hardcat provides users with a powerful import and export capability. Imports/exports can be scheduled to meet data synchronisation requirements.

For real-time activities, the interface can be tailored to meet an organisation's exacting requirements. TAML will work closely with a customer and their (potentially) many product partners to answer the following questions:

  • What systems need to 'talk'?

  • Why?

  • Who will be performing the integration?

  • What technologies are available to 'talk' to the other systems?

  • What data transformation needs to take place between systems?

  • What information goes in? What information goes out?

For complex integration exercises with fairly closed systems, Hardcat can engage via an Information Broker – a set of tables or files which reside between systems and are shared by various parties – thus ensuring that only the required information is shared and the most appropriate integrators and vendors are consuming data.

Hardcat has experience integrating to the largest and smallest packages, from ERPs to small, bespoke accounting systems and even hardware auto-discovery tools.

Hardcat API Functions

System integrators can use the Hardcat API function to build interfaces that communicate with Hardcat and allow users to perform Hardcat tasks from within other 3rd party systems.

The largest benefit for organisations to use API's is the significant decrease in internal costs by eliminating the need for their employees to re-enter data that is already captured by an application, site or service.

The Hardcat API's allows users to perform the following Hardcat functions from other systems:

  • Create/delete assets

  • Edit asset details such as location, person, cost centre and supplier

  • Update asset GPS coordinates

  • And much more...
