At Service Objects, one of our Core Values is Customer Service Above All. As part of this commitment, our Application Engineers are always available to answer any technical questions from prospects and customers. Whether users are beginning their initial investigation or need help with integration and deployment, our Engineers are standing by. While we continually make our services as easy to integrate as possible, we’d like to touch on a few common topics that are particularly helpful for users just getting started.
Are you are experiencing networking issues while making requests to our web services? It is a very common problem to face where outbound requests are being limited by your firewall and a simple rule update can solve the issue. When matters extend beyond simple rule changes, we are more than happy to schedule a meeting between our networking team and yours to get to the root cause and solve the issue.
Understanding the Service Outputs
Another common question revolves around the service outputs, such as how they should look and how they can be interpreted. From a high level, it is easy to understand what the service can provide but when it comes down to parsing the outputs, it can sometimes be a bit trickier. Luckily there are sets of documentation for every service and each of their operations. Our developer guides are the first place to check if you are having trouble understanding how individual fields can be interpreted and applied to your business logic. Every output has a description that provides insight into what that field means. Beyond the documentation, our Application Engineering team is available via multiple channels to answer your questions, including r email, live chat, and phone.
Making the Move from Development to Production
Eventually everyone who moves from a being a trial user to a production user undergoes the same steps. Luckily for our customers, moving code from development to production is as easy as changing two items.
- The first step is swapping out a trial license key to a production key.
- The second step is to point your web service calls from our trial environment to our production environment. Our trial environment mirrors the exact outputs that you will find in production so no other code changes are necessary.
We understand that, even though we say it is easy, making the move to production can be daunting. That is why we are committed to providing your business with 24/7/365 technical support. We want the process to go as smoothly as possible and members of our team are standing by to help at a moment’s notice.
We have highlighted only a few broad cases that we have handled throughout our 16 years of providing genuine, accurate, and up-to-date data validation. Many technical questions are unique and our goal is to tackle them head on. If a question arises during your initial investigation, integration, move to production, or beyond, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
