An Application Program Interface (API) allows for communication and connection between third party applications and Empower Materials.

Additional fees are payable for use of Empower's API - for more information contact Empower.

This part of the Empower Cloud Help system is intended to be a technical resource for developers intending to utilize the Empower Time Track Application Programming Interface (API).

Empower's API provides secure access to, and exposes Supplier, Material, Purchase Order and related functionality to third party applications.  

The Empower Time Track API is based on open standards known collectively as web services, which include the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Definition Language (WSDL), and the XML Schema Definition language (XSD).

For more information on the WSDL schema, including the address to send data to, see WDSL Schema.
A wide range of development tools on a variety of platforms support these web services. 

Currently Empower has a service limit of a maximum of 1,000 API calls per 24 hour period.  Should you exceed this number Empower will limit the number of calls to 1,000 per 24 hour period.

Any calls over and above 1,000 per 24 hour period will be subject to an additional cost of $10 per 1000 calls (or part thereof).
