Website Inquiry Forms to Lexicata Integration

Website Inquiry Forms to Lexicata Integration

Our client Legacy Protection Lawyers recently asked us to automate the creation of contacts and on boarding when new potential clients submit a form on their website.

This is a bit tricky because Lexicata doesn't actually support integration or publish details on their APIs. The only option they do offer is a Word Press plugin, which wouldn't work in this case as we developed their site using the DotNetNuke CMS.

We solved this by temporarily setting up a Word Press site and installing and activating the Lexicata plugin to enable the API feature for Legacy and setting up a contact us form. Then submitted a form and used Wire Shark to intercept and record the API calls, and decommissioned the Word Press site.

Finally I coded a web service to replicate the calls and configured the web site forms to call it. A little testing and tweaking and it's off to the races.

If you need a hand integrating external services with your website feel free to drop us a line, we're happy to help.
