API data stream
The most common way of booking platform integration is by web pages.
Basically it works as an integration on the level of vessels data base, searching available capacities by arbitrary criterias and placing options/booking on those available capacities. It is possible to make an integration with web pages of fleet operators or charter agencies (brokers).
NauSYS™ is set up as na open type platform. Meaning that it has a defined communication protocol (API – application programming interface) by which programmers can easily and efficently use NauSYS™ as a source or a destination of processed data.
API is most easily described as a “call centre” that transports and synchronizes contents between calls. Technically a list of commands and their formats that can send one program to another one. If you are using Facebook, Dropbox or Google Analytics you are actually already using an API!
API is mostly used to share contents through channels (smartphones, web applications, smart devices, watches etc.). It provides extraordinary channels and, most important, fast adaptation, so even the first developed application will be highly flexible to further developments and upgrades.
