StrikeIron is launching a “plug and play” application for independent software vendors as part of its Web Services Business Network.

The solution is designed to enable software developers and solution providers to integrate StrikeIron applications into their own programs for real-time access to data and other uses.

“This is an ideal solution for the integration of live data directly into real-time business processes to increase productivity and lower costs,” StrikeIron said in a statement. “For example, web services can be used in customer relationship management applications to implement live data feeds and thus eliminate the time consuming, costly and error prone methods of bulk data importing, exporting and cleanup.”
