With RapidiOnline you don't need to buy the web service API access for Salesforce.com Professional Edition to integrate your systemsThe web service API for Salesforce.com is often used to build integrations between Salesforce.com and other systems.
The Professional Edition of salesforce.com does not come with access to the web service API. The API is included in the Enterprise Edition, but for the Professional Edition, you have to buy it separately.
RapidiOnline also uses the web service API to integrate with Salesforce.com, but as our solution is AppExchange certified by salesforce.com, we have the benefit of being able to access the API on Professional Edition. This means you don't need to buy the API access separately.
If you are considering to buy the API access for salesforce.com or to upgrade to Enterprise Edition, you might consider to use an integration service such as RapidiOnline instead. In this way you get an integration platform with a lot of functionality for the same price (or in some cases even less money) as you would otherwise pay for the API access.
Why consider RapidiOnline's salesforce integration solution?RapidiOnline comes in different solutions - it can be used as a generic integration tool to build your own integration or you can use one of our standard predefined solutions.

However, you get the best value, if you use one of our standard integrations. Here you will get a fully functional predefined integration between your salesforce.com and your ERP system. We even help you install and adapt the solution to your specific needs at a fixed price. We have standard integrations for MS Dynamics NAV and MS Dynamics AX among others.
