Flexible Access Options

You have full control over how Timly and SAP interact. Every object and attribute in Timly is accessible through both the web app’s graphical user interface and the REST API. This flexibility lets you determine the extent and manner of synchronization between Timly and SAP on your terms.
Tailored to your company’s unique needs, you can fetch all assets listed in Timly via the REST API and incorporate them into SAP. Conversely, it’s also feasible to automate the addition or updating of employees, locations, and previously cataloged inventory in Timly through the REST API. This bidirectional capability ensures that your asset management is as efficient and adaptable as possible.

Safety as a Top Priority

Ensuring the security of your IT infrastructure is paramount, especially when your sensitive company data is being synchronized automatically. The security of the REST API is on par with that of your internet connection to the cloud server. Essential security measures, including encryption and secure authentication, are standard practices. Timly’s API server utilizes the well-established HTTPS protocol, and user login is secured with an individual, cryptographically safe token. This approach guarantees that the automatic synchronization does not compromise the safety of your data.
