Success Story. Tangle.io

Frontend-as-a-Service (FaaS). Data hosted by Google or Salesforce.

 

Ian H Smith

At Being Guided, I work with tech challengers who deliver new value propositions for digital innovation. A go-to-market Engagement with Tangle.io is a recent success. The UK National Health Service (NHS), Europe's largest organisation, is the early adopter customer. 

Problem

If you want to integrate Salesforce with other apps or services, there are a number of existing technologies you can use: Boomi, Jitterbit or MuleSoft. However, in each case the big problem is cost - the true cost. This means not only high-cost licenses but an outdated approach to expensive  'full stack' software development. There is a better approach to app integration: Tangle.io .

Solution

Tangle.io is a startup based in Florida, USA with a focus on enabling Salesforce Integration by delivering the inherent advantage of a Low-Code Platform. There are many times when a simple No-Code Platform can empower a non-tech 'Citizen Developer' to create Web or mobile apps, without writing a single line of code. 

However, when it comes to app integration, No-Code Platforms (such as Zapier), are often too restricted to work for most real world integration requirements. Although going High-Code simply reinforces high-cost 'full stack' software development, sometimes a few lines of JavaScript code using the Tangle.io Low-Code Platform is the best approach to app integration.

 

 

As described below, we enabled Tangle.io to win the NHS as an early adopter customer. The cost difference with this Low-Code Platform  v. MuleSoft was 100x+!

For the NHS, the Tangle.io solution has provided a seamless integration between Salesforce and many other applications: an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system; a Patient Booking system; Eventbrite, Mailchimp and Microsoft Teams Events systems; and, HubSpot and Mailchimp Marketing systems.

More About Tangle.io 

Tangle.io is a platform that allows visual integration of apps. With simple drag-and-drop Low-Code Platform tools Tangle.io solutions extend established IT systems: including Microsoft Dynamics (via a Google Chrome Plugin) and Salesforce Platform (via a 'Canvas'). 

Tangle.io is a Frontend-as-a-Service ("FaaS"). It enables Integration and extension of established apps on Microsoft Dynamics (via a Google Chrome Web browser Plugin) and Salesforce Platform (via a Lightning 'Canvas'). This means trusted hosting of data on Google Firebase or Salesforce.  

As illustrated in the infographic above, Tangle.io provides a truly integrated user experience through a right-hand, left-hand or full-page 'Canvas' on a Salesforce app Record. This means that users can work on different apps and related tasks directly inside Salesforce Lightning Experience.

Tangle.io enables many integrations with a Microsoft Dynamics or Salesforce Lightning Platform foundation.  This ranges from popular apps, such as Eventbrite, Google Workspace, Mailchimp, Microsoft Teams and Zoom Webinar - to complex interfaces - e.g., HL7 for Electronic Health Record ("EHR") systems or comprehensive Decisioning APIs, such as UK Companies House or Experian.

This included an integration with a sophisticated Wholesale Finance System.
