High Impact Integration Solutions

Integration Approach

Impact Group serves as an integration solution provider for our Software Development clients by developing APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) between their Off-The-Shelf (OTS) and their client’s back-end systems to meet the demand for secure, near-real-time integrations.

These integrations automate connections to Billing, Project Management, Payroll, Test Equipment, and many other types of back-end systems. Specific back-end systems include Microsoft Dynamics, QuickBooks, Sage Business Management Software, and many other.

For nearly three decades, Impact Group has been helping our clients achieve strategic business / IT alignment and improve business performance by planning, delivering and managing change for new-value solutions and capabilities in business operations and technology.
