Enter Once, Reap the Benefits Continuously

Accurately tracking every asset within your company is not only advantageous for maintaining a complete overview of all work equipment and inventory items but also enhances the broader scope of your asset management practices. Beyond just a comprehensive view of your assets, Timly’s extensively documented REST API allows other applications to directly and automatically query or update information.

This capability enables direct integration with various systems, such as transferring asset details to your accounting system, updating stock levels in your inventory management system, and scheduling maintenance activities in your workshop management software. With its cloud-based deployment, Timly is accessible from anywhere, providing secure and authorized access to the valuable data within your Timly inventory system.

The REST API: A Cloud Application Standard

Users typically access cloud-based solutions like Timly through an app or web browser, where a program sends requests and relays necessary information via the HTTP protocol. While users interact with a graphical interface displaying pre-processed information, automated requests can also be made through the HTTP protocol using the REST API. This process utilizes a standardized set of commands, with developers providing documentation detailing the internal names of data records that can be accessed or manipulated.

Such access allows for the automation and customization of tasks like database synchronization or updates, catering to specific onsite requirements. Importantly, Timly includes a robust authentication process upfront, ensuring that only authorized users can access its database, maintaining data security and integrity.

Secure Access to Timly’s REST API

Accessing Timly’s REST API involves a secure authentication process similar to logging in through the web app. However, instead of using a username and password, a cryptographically secure token, generated in advance and stored within the linked application, is utilized. This secure token ensures that only authorized applications can access the system. Data exchange between the applications and the Timly server is conducted over the encrypted HTTPS protocol, safeguarding the transmitted data from unauthorized third-party access, ensuring that your information remains secure at all times.
