3 Keys to Faster Revenue Realization with PilotFish’s Integration Engine

Integration increases Revenue

Despite marketing hype and fancy buzzwords, realizing revenue faster from integration comes down to three main factors. All three effect efficiency, implementation and deployment timelines. Here is what you need to consider:

How responsive is the integration engine vendor?

Time is moneyTime is money. The longer it takes to set up your initial meetings, have product demos, sign NDAs, have contracts generated and negotiated and get fast technical support – the greater your time to market.

Consolidation has changed the industry. Billion-dollar organizations are buying up integration companies. Are they now too narrowly focused on the parent company’s needs and not yours? Are the conjoined companies now in competition with one another competing for resources?

All you need to do is to look at online product reviews and see that with mergers and acquisitions service has suffered at many of these companies.

Not at PilotFish. We are privately held. Our focus is solely on integration and delivering the highest level of service in the industry – and has been for more than two decades. It’s why we have earned a 5-star rating on Capterra.

How easy is the product to use and learn?

Flexible Product ArchitectureYou don’t know what you don’t know. Even the most carefully planned projects can’t define every potential aspect. It’s why you need a product that offers you the most flexibility.

Does the product limit you to just API based integration? Does it allow you to work with any type of data format or is it just HL7 or X12 EDI focused? Does it support open APIs so that the product can be easily extended? Are you limited to a Windows operating system or does it also support Mac OS and Linux?

PilotFish was architected to be extensible and flexible. PilotFish’s robust integration framework does not emphasize APIs over other integration types. We believe in today’s complex environment, you need a product that offers the flexibility to handle all integrations well, including APIs.

Our Open API allows users to utilize Java or a .Net bridge to extend the product beyond our 130+ processors, 40+ listener adapters and 35+ transport adapters that are built in. These days organizations need to accept any kind of data format. Government reporting requirements are increasingly requiring support for X12 EDI formats. PilotFish supports and integrates any data type, regardless of format or complexity. PilotFish does not limit you to working in a Windows environment. Users can utilize Mac and Linux operating systems for greater licensing flexibility and potential savings.

PilotFish is also the only vendor that offers a 7-Stage Graphical Automated Interface Assembly Line process. No matter what data formats you are working with, or what kind of connectivity you need, this same process is used to configure any interface. And it can be done without any coding or scripting.

How flexible is the product architecture?

Test Drive PilotFishSeeing is believing. You can read through all the marketing hype about ease of use, graphical IDEs and drag & drop capabilities, but in the end, these are just words on a page. The actual user experience can only be had with a test drive.

Does the vendor offer a 90-day test drive (less than that you really cannot accomplish much)? Does the test drive offer a full version of the software or just limited functionality? What kind of support in terms of documentation and tutorials are offered? How fast and easy is it to build interfaces with? Is reusability built-in? Is there built-in testing? Is the data mapping visual? What productivity-enhancing features does it have? These are all questions, best answered by trying the software out.

PilotFish is one of the few vendors to offer a 90-day free trial. Ours is a full version of our software including all the components, listener and transport adaptors, processors, a data mapper, end-to-end testing and an eiPlatform (our Java runtime engine) emulator. But we also offer comprehensive tutorials, with step-by-step instructions and annotated screenshots to get users up to speed fast. In addition, we offer 1000s of resources in our knowledge base that is open to all downloaders.
