Why unified APIs aren't the right option

"More complex use cases aren't fully possible using Merge. This has meant that our integrations can only accomplish so much before we would have to consider building our own custom API. We have also spent considerable time writing custom passthrough requests for fields that don't quite fit with the common model."

“Our team asked me ‘how the heck did we get Slack integrated so quickly?’ We're now ramping up our onboarding thanks to our ability to easily add integrations through Paragon.”

“Paragon helped us quickly ship a Slack integration that we were always putting on the back burner. Now it’s live and serving happy customers in under a month.”

“Paragon not only saved us weeks of engineering time delivering a Salesforce integration for our customers, we can now consistently ship new integrations and move upmarket.”
