DreamFactory APIs equal more helpful Glances for everyone!

Imagine this: your company has Mailchimp, SugarCRM, and Zendesk all seamlessly connected to Glances. You are saving precious time every workday by using Glances to reference your customer data from multiple applications in one simplified, single customer view. The only downfall is, you still have to log in and switch tabs to use your company’s legacy system for inventory management because it was not developed using an Application Programming Interface (API), meaning it cannot speak to other modern software platforms. Now that Glances has partnered with the talented team at DreamFactory, this scenario is no longer a concern for businesses already using (or considering using) Glances!

How these 2 platforms work together, for you

DreamFactory is an enterprise-grade API as a service platform that helps users generate database APIs instantly and securely (without code!) to build applications faster. Now on board with Glances, DreamFactory allows you to quickly connect more business applications, such as internal systems, to ensure that additional data is visible within Glances. DreamFactory builds a REST API for Glances to access, even if the system is out-of-date or hard-to-access, which allows Glances and your business application to seamlessly communicate with each other.

Even your company’s most archaic and challenging systems can be brought up to speed using DreamFactory and its API-building technology. The major takeaway? The more systems and software businesses can connect with the help of DreamFactory REST APIs, the more powerful Glances will be in helping professionals that work in CRMs, support systems, marketing platforms, and other necessary apps stay in their program of choice, but still gain access to a holistic view of each customer.

How Glances works

Accessing your data and available glances is incredibly simple and secure. When signed in to Glances, Glancey will stamp email addresses that display on the webpage you are viewing. To see data associated with that email, simply click the stamp. Alternatively, you can use the Glances widget in the corner of the page to see relevant data. This allows you to quickly gain a holistic picture of the customer, client, or record you are currently viewing.
