API integration in financial services is often a painful, labour-intensive chore.
The FixSpec team has experienced this pain firsthand, which led us to create a modular stack of pain-killing software designed to make integration faster and easier.
It all starts with building reusable, electronic documentation that delivers benefits that a static PDF never could.
Hook up FixSpec's solutions to your QA process or use it for certification to add a layer of real-life validation, and soon you will spend less time answering the same old API questions and more time impressing your customers - with fewer headaches all around.
We know API documentation isn't typically thought of as cool, exciting or even revenue-generating. But your spec is the foundation on which your entire API-led business is built; unless you get it right, you will always struggle to improve efficiency.
The toughest problem to solve is that API documents are almost always written in a way that makes sense to the person writing them, but not necessarily to the developer reading them.
This is why we designed SpecServer to improve the workflow of both the reader and writer, enhancing communication, reducing errors, and speeding up integration.LEARN MORE
One of the best use cases for electronic API documentation is certifying a customer API connection.
Traditionally a very inefficient, labour-intensive and error-prone process, this is an area of increasing focus for both regulators and business managers alike.
FixSpec's Central continually listens to your existing testing environment, validating message traffic in real time, replacing manual testing with a single button click. Freed from searching endless log files, your team can spend more time helping customers or improving test coverage and frequency.LEARN MORE
FixSpec's SideKick puts the monitoring and certification power of Central into the hands of your customers through a white-labelled solution. By showing real-time messaging errors, customers can develop and troubleshoot independently, and complete certification on their own schedule, all without ever needing to book a time slot.
Customer experience and relationships are important, which is why SideKick is designed as a premium service offering (as opposed to an impersonal, scripted website), giving customers a unique, real-time window into their own traffic within your existing environment.LEARN MORE
