Our Development Team

What Makes Us Different?

Any well-built software service will offer you access to an API (Application Interface). These are essential to being able to link different systems to enable automation, move data between systems and is key for efficient operations. But for many suppliers the API and a copy of the documentation is where the support ends. Your time-poor IT team must work out how to connect external to internal APIs and manage additional server resources for the integration code.

At Hark, our development team is ready to help. We will assist with debugging connections, push data from our APIs to yours, transform the data into something more suitable and even host the bespoke code for you. Whether you are feeding the aHub from an SFTP site, connecting to web service or simply pushing an Excel order by email to your Customer Services, we can help.

What Does Success Look Like?

It’s important to make sure everyone knows the end goal and has a clear understanding of the criteria for success. Typically, these initial discussions focus on the workflow and what you are looking to achieve. Not everyone is interested in the technical detail and it is important that the upfront discussions are about who does what, where and when – the how can come later.

With the objective clear, we give you an idea of likely timescale and cost. When you are ready to proceed, your dedicated Project Lead will introduce you to our Developers, who will look at the detail, understand the systems involved, find out where the data is held and look at some examples. Then we will give you a fixed development cost, so there are no nasty surprises.

With everything agreed, we will work with your IT team, while your Project Lead keeps all stakeholders updated on progress, free of technical jargon.
