The Secret Life of Software: Where Our SDKs and APIs Live
Software is everywhere. Recent research points to the development of “ubiquitous computing” solutions that underpin our interactions with familiar technologies and products. But there’s more to this IT evolution than meets the eye.
To meet growing consumer demand and corporate expectations of speed and security, enterprises are leveraging software development kits (SDKs) and application programming interfaces (APIs) — lightweight tools that can be easily integrated with existing applications and physical devices.
The result? A behind-the-curtain brand with powerful solutions. Did you know that you interact with Accusoft’s SDKs and APIs almost every day, but they’re hiding in plain sight?
Signed, Scanned, Delivered
Data is the foundation of reliable mail service. Accusoft’s Barcode Xpress Mobile (BXM) underpins critical technology used by the country’s largest mail carrier to ensure letters and packages are delivered to the right people on time, everytime.
By integrating BXM with mobile technology, employees can quickly scan postal barcodes to obtain delivery address, transit history, recipient names, and any special instructions for parcel drop-off or signature.
Accusoft’s SDK also empowers staff to deal with changing weather conditions like rain or snow, which may negatively affect packaging and transit labels. BXM has no trouble reading damaged, broken, or incorrect barcodes to ensure swift completion of appointed rounds.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines provide critical data to healthcare providers about anatomical structures and physiological processes inside the human body without the need for invasive surgery. Now a fixture of both general and specialized hospitals across the United States, MRI machines depend on Accusoft’s PicTools Medical to create high-accuracy, high-quality images used to inform patient care.
Along with support for commercially-supported imaging software libraries, PicTools Medical natively delivers results that conform to digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) image standards, making it easy for healthcare professionals to collaborate across departments, cities, or states and ensure patients receive the best care possible.
Used an ATM lately? Then you’ve probably watched ImagXpress at work. With over 80 functions for image processing and editing, ImagXpress provides ATM users with a fast, accurate view of the deposited check after the machine takes it.
Leveraging content processing technology, ImagXpress provides users with a better way to view their deposited check and keep an accurate depiction of their transaction for their records.
What does this mean for you, the consumer? ImagXpress streamlines the process that matters: documenting the check deposit with an image that shows the check you used in the transaction.
Behind the Scenes
Software streamlines our interaction with the world at large. But the cost and complexity of developing new software tools from the ground up for every new product and application can quickly sidetrack even the simplest of projects. The solution? Hide great code in plain sight with advanced SDKs and APIs.
Companies get the benefit of powerful tools and simplified functions fully integrated with existing applications and corporate security policies. Consumers reap the rewards of better end-user experience. Accurate, trackable mail delivery, life-saving medical images, and cold, hard cash on-demand.
