Meet Merge: a Unified API for B2B apps. Instead of building lots of integrations to widely varying APIs, you can integrate with a single API and support any integration your customers want. Think of Merge as a universal translator, a Roseta Stone for APIs. Merge returns normalized data across 100s of integrations, all synced continuously, and available in REST API. No SOAP or web scraping required.

Engineering teams at Ramp, TripActions, and Drata use Merge to build dozens of integrations in weeks, speed up time to market, and make their customers happy.

If you’re working on integrations with accounting, CRM, HR, project management, recruiting, ticketing apps, and more, check out Merge today at www.merge.dev/sedaily.
