AIM – API Integration Management
Your integration point to Partner Success
Get or Submit Data
AIM has two categories of APIs: get and submit. Get APIs support an immediate response to transaction data. Submit APIs support requests for quote, convert quote to order, and direct order to Westcon-Comstor for offline processing and response.
AIM offers a development toolkit to facilitate partner implementation that includes detailed documentation and ready to use code. An assigned partnerkey gives you access to all available APIs in separate test and production environments.
Free to use
There is no cost or service charge to use AIM. All it takes is time to develop, build, and maintain the integration – and changes to partners’ internal systems to consume and use the information.
