BusinessRadar WebServices

BusinessRadar offers to developpers a set of webservices for searching companies and trade leads. These services can be easily implemented and are not dependent from the platform used: (PC, website, handheld, mobile......). Our webservices use XML/SOAP/WSDL standards and are easy to interface with your software applications : ERP, CRM, SCM, decision support systems,etc. You can use our webservices with PHP, for instance, thanks to free software library "NuSoap".
NuSoap (SOAP Toolkit for PHP) gives you several methods for creating server and client parts. You can find all information and software you need at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nusoap/ Our server is contained in http://www.businessradar.it/wsdl.php.

Here you can reach the xml-soap file: url
http://www.businessradar.it/wsdl.php?wsdl xml-soap file wsdl  
The avalaible functions are called methods. When a remote software invokes our server the method runs (NuSoap). The results of the method returns to the caller an Xml SOAP answer data set.
