SnapComms Internal Messaging API


The SnapComms solution has API’s that allow you to integrate with other applications. This means that content created from another source can be automatically published and delivered to targeted users using the SnapComms messaging formats.

The SnapComms API gives developers the ability to:

 

  • Create and publish content ("Access API")

  • Register and manage devices ("Registration API")

  • Import users and groups from other systems ("Import API")

  • Deliver push notification to various devices ("Notifications API")

  • Enable access to published content ("Client API")

  • Return reports and content statistics ("Reporting API")

 

NB) RSS content delivery - As a standard feature, the SnapComms Scrolling Ticker format already allow you to add RSS feeds to a scrolling ticker and have them display on the screen of targeted users and groups. Every time the RSS feed source is updated the ticker bar will scroll on screen and display all active news feeds. If you are able to convert your content into an XML feed you could use the SnapComms RSS feed to display these messages on screen.

You can also add RSS feeds to the screensaver digital signage channel.
