Ensure you get maximum value not just from Assetic but from all your data-rich systems, by extracting and utilising key asset data in real time, using either data exchange or REST APIs.
Data exchange involves a manual or scheduled read/write from external data files (e.g. CSV), and maps fields from the external system to Assetic. These mappings can be saved as templates for ease of importing in the future. Alternatively automated data integration feeds are possible using REST APIs, which can be utilised to push / pull asset data with external systems.
Assetic’s system connector allows users to seamlessly and easily launch third-party applications from within Assetic. Simply specify a series of actions you’d like to call the external system with (e.g. view / edit / delete / search), then for each action specify the action URL, and the parameters and contextual Assetic fields to be posted to the action URL.
GIS systems are a common example of an application our clients launch from within Assetic. If a GIS integration is present, users will see contextual system connector buttons anywhere in Assetic that an inbuilt Google Map is displayed (e.g. assets or work orders), which launch the third-party GIS system. GIS actions configured in Assetic integrations include view and edit asset data, or geo-search for nearby assets, when a GIS system has been connected.
Single Sign On (SSO) enables users to securely log in without having to create an Assetic-specific username and password, by having them authenticate themselves against an external identity provider. The practice of SSO is increasingly popular, as removes the need for remembering multiple passwords without sacrificing security.
