Want to Get the Most Out of Your Valuable Content or Data? Learn How to Utilize Sitefinity's Ability to Integrate with Third-party Platforms

Dec 17, 2020

Sitefinity’s API is a well built platform that can be utilized to integrate with most third-party platforms to help your business thrive and help you get the most out of your data. This helps deliver much needed content to your users.   

With powerful, custom integrations, you will be ready to connect Sitefinity to critical platforms such as medical credentialing systems, customer relationship management tools (CRM), electronic medical record tools (EMR), content libraries, mobile apps, payment and billing systems, and medical staff or physician directories.  

It is incredibly flexible and integrates easily with other technologies. This allows you to present content from another system on your website, but it also allows you to push content from your website to other systems.  

This makes a marketer’s job much more efficient.

 

Integrations are key 

The possibilities are endless. In this blog, we detail the top reasons why using Sitefinity as a hub, will help you get the most out of your CMS experience! 

A content management system by itself is useful. Being able to integrate content and data from outside technology platforms takes your content to another level. Tie-ins to other systems, whether pre-built connections with widgets, plugins, or extensions or through custom developed integrations, can bring out more than you could ever have imagined.  

So much expanded content is available and ready to be delivered to your customers. Integrations are the key to bringing out the best in your CMS. 

 

Flexibility and Expansion 

If your CMS does not have the flexibility to work with as many other systems as possible, you -- and most importantly your users, will be missing out. Sitefinity’s ability to integrate with so many other platforms means that you are guaranteed to succeed. The more flexible your CMS is, the more successful you are. 

Sitefinity offers ready-to-use partner integrations and connectors through the Sitefinity Marketplace. The Sitefinity Marketplace has an extensive selection of widgets, plugins and extensions that help increase the power and functionality of your Sitefinity solution. The marketplace allows you to easily share and download solutions that extend the Sitefinity digital experience. 

In addition to the Sitefinity Marketplace, you can also develop your own Sitefinity integrations with Sitefinity’s flexible API. Sitefinity’s API gives you the freedom to access your application data regardless of where it’s stored. Sitefinity then provides multiple ways to query and use your data. 

Being able to have as many options as possible at your disposal means ultimate flexibility and even more avenues to success.
