Examples may include enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer resource management (CRM), manufacturing execution systems (MES)and product data management (PDM) applications. MasterControl integrates nicely with many major software applications typically used by companies. In some cases there are many connection points between MasterControl's system functionality and the functionality of other applications. When properly configured, these connection points can vastly improve a company's overall performance and automation. MasterControl's API Toolkit™ enables companies to bridge that functionality by integrating MasterControl with third party systems.
