Benefits of using this connector

  • The most important requirement is to constantly maintain the integrations and workflows

    Integrations quickly become a critical component of your business operations and need to be maintained in real-time.

    Third Party endpoints like Microsoft Excel are frequently updated, which if unmanaged, can result in downtime. Companies cannot afford the time to review 1000's of lines of code or be dependent on individual developers as seen with hand coded solutions.

    Hand coding and plug-ins are brittle by nature, as they are developed to integrate with Microsoft Excel at a specific point in time. When Microsoft Excel is regularly updated, the hand coding is likely to break causing disruption to the business.
  • Avoid complex API documentation, deliver solutions in 25% of the time to hand code.

    Each Flowgear connector includes a Sample.

    This is the way Flowgear visually surfaces all the features, objects and fields made available by the Microsoft Excel API, including any customized objects.

    Example: "Create Contact" quickly filter through 3500 Salesforce Objects.
