The ATS OpenWater Bridge:

OpenWater is an all-in-one software platform that lets your organization collect and review any type of application and provide for online review.

The ATS OpenWater Bridge provides integration with OpenWater and includes:

  • Single Sign on with iMIS
  • An IQA query allowing OpenWater to pull proposer information from iMIS into OpenWater.
  • Ability to push activities back into iMIS for proposers and speakers.

Easy Does It: Integration Made Simple

The ATS methodology for bridges uses the iMIS API's to achieve the results you expect from a world-class integration. We work closely with third-party partners to use their API's in the most efficient manner. We pride ourselves on building integrations that work on many versions of iMIS. This means that when you upgrade iMIS the bridges will continue to work without having to be rewritten.

The results of this methodology include:

  • Compatibility with all versions of iMIS (unless otherwise noted) using the appropriate iMIS API's that work best with your version of iMIS.
  • The flexibility of on-premise or hosted models for the software.
  • Easy set-up and one-time configuration including installation services from ATS.
