Does MIDAS integrate with X?

We're often asked if MIDAS directly integrates with various other 3rd party software systems (such as CMS or accounting packages)

As you can probably appreciate there are countless and varied software systems that such integration is asked about, and it would be near impossible for us to provide native integration with them all!

However, we do recognize that some customers may wish to take data from MIDAS for use within other software platforms and systems, and likewise take data from other software systems and bring it into MIDAS.

So we provide a number of tools to allow you to achieve this:

Manually importing data from 3rd party software into MIDAS

Most software packages provide an "Export" function allowing you to export data from them in common formats such as text, .csv (comma separated values), or iCal files. We include an import tool within MIDAS (which you'll find via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Database → Database Tools), which will then allow you to import bookings, clients, or users directly into MIDAS from your exported text or .csv files.

Manually exporting data from MIDAS into 3rd party software

We provide you with the means to export data from your MIDAS system (via MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Database → Export) for use in other applications. Bookings, Clients, Users, Invoice Summaries and Resources can be exported, and a range of export formats are available including text, .csv, XML, and iCal. Once you've exported your data in the appropriate format, you can then import it into other applications which support importing of data in these formats.

Real-time integration between MIDAS and 3rd party software

For even greater "real time" integration between MIDAS and your desired 3rd party software, we offer an optional and flexible API addon. The API addons supports both "one-way" and "bi-directional" access to MIDAS, and so if your 3rd party software also has an API of its own, integration between the two could be achieved by getting the two respective API's to communicate with each other (something you, your IT department, or your web/app developer could implement). Complete documentation on our own API, along with code samples may be found at https://mid.as/api
