ecode360 api

Stay connected to your online code through your own applications

General Code’s eCode360 API allows our partner communities to seamlessly integrate content from our proprietary eCode360 online code portal into their own systems and platforms – including those from 3rd party providers and developers or other vendors. By leveraging code as data, the eCode360 API provides a reliable live connection to information housed on eCode360 via the applications local governments already use. It also eliminates the need to import code information manually, which can save municipalities valuable time and resources. The eCode360 API can be an important tool for keeping citizens connected and municipalities running efficiently, all without time-consuming or potentially costly system upgrades or reconfigurations.
