Dovetail as a white label or embedded integration shell around your own software package
Dovetail also offers the option of white labeling or embedding. This can be a perfect solution for software companies that need an integration shell around their own application or around third-party applications that they implement as a partner with their customers.
Through standardization and parameterization of integration components, integration flows and processes, this is an excellent opportunity to concentrate your core business and keep the focus of your developers on your own product. Parties that work with Dovetail in this way are able to keep application integration on the functional side of the organization. This also offers major advantages for manageability, especially if you are going to scale up and want to connect more parties more quickly.
Using Dovetail has many advantages compared to developing an integration shell around your product yourself. Below we list the benefits for you.
1. Focus on your core business
By far the greatest advantage lies in the fact that you don’t have to worry about developing expertise in the field of integration. Building, optimizing and expanding our integration platform is what we have done and what we specialize in. When you leave the development of integration software to the experts of Dovetail, you can fully focus on developing your own company. We regularly release new versions that we install for you and we also listen to our partners; co-creation is part of our partner program. In addition, we have extensive monitoring of the application and the authority on which Dovetail runs, we make updates and we conduct a proactive update policy with regard to security.
2. Lower costs per linked customer
The costs of Dovetail white label are considerably lower than if you develop the integration software yourself. Because technology is constantly changing and because your customers’ wishes regarding integration also change, continuous updating of software is necessary. Since the software is also used by other companies, development and management costs are shared. This requires much less support than if you develop it in-house.
3. Dovetail is readily available
Another great advantage of using Dovetail white label is that it can be used almost immediately. We have your own cloud base integration solution up and running in no time. Of course, your employees still need to be trained to apply it. Dovetail can be quickly used by citizen or software developers who have knowledge of processes, data types and APIs. For support we offer Dovetail Academy where you can learn how the application works, how the components can be used and what the best practices are. If this knowledge is partially or not available, we offer an appropriate training program. The learning curve is steep but short. The training is practical and aims to quickly configure the required integrations.
4. Speed through flexibility
Programming custom integrations software takes a lot of time and we are not even talking about maintenance and necessary adjustments when the external environment with which to connect has changed. Our no / low code integration solution approaches integration from a functional perspective and makes it possible to set up integrations quickly and immediately adjust them if necessary. With Dovetail an OTAP street can be set up and with version management, test versions of integrations can be put on the fly live.
5. Low risk because the wheel has already been invented
Starting to develop your own integration software from scratch entails risks. You are not sure if it will work as you have in mind and it also takes a lot of time. But when you start working with Dovetail white label software, you don’t have to worry about this. The software is ready and tested, it has been sold to other customers and it has worked for them. In addition, our experience is that achieving an integration that meets all requirements is a process of several iteration layers. With each iteration, new insights and possibilities for integration must be incorporated. In Dovetail this can be done in an instant. If something goes wrong when using Dovetail, you can contact us as a partner by telephone or via our portal.
6. Reuse and standardization
Dovetail offers several options to support the reuse of configured integrations. For example, complete integrations can be saved as a reusable component and used in other integrations with other variables. It is also possible to export and import integrations. Integrations can also be linked to each other, which makes it possible, for example, to connect different integration processes to one other process. In situations where many identical integrations have to be made on your own software, this offers major advantages in management and maintenance.
7. Overview on transactions
With Dovetail, integrations are approached from a functional perspective. Because there is an overview of successful and unsuccessful transactions, your service desk can immediately help your customers to solve data errors, for example.
8. Successful together through co-creation
Dovetail is designed to configure flexible and agile integrations. It is possible that changes in Dovetail may be necessary with new customers or new techniques. Because we make our software for our partners and their end users, we like to listen to our partners and we think it is important to work together. We would therefore like to enter into a dialogue to further develop Dovetail in this way by means of co-creation and to make it connect even better to practice.
