Cacoo SDK puts Diagram into your Apps
SINGAPORE, 16 September 2013 Nulab, Inc. has launched the SDK (Software Development Kit) edition of its webbased collaborative diagramming tool, Cacoo. Users of Cacoo SDK can easily integrate Cacoo’sdiagramming interface and functionalities with their web applications and services. Cacoo SDK includes unique API and documentation that gives them greater flexibility and control in customizing and incorporating Cacoo’s diagramming features into their own services.
“Cacoo SDK is a solution for companies who value and desire better communication with their customersthrough visual representations.” said Masanori Hashimoto, CEO, Nulab Inc. Since its first release, Cacoohas been constantly upgraded to align more closely with the needs of users, and user feedback has been atremendous influence on the way Cacoo has evolved. The SDK edition is also a response to requests fromusers who wish to embed tools that enable graphical creation into their applications, as well as those whowant to create a visual experience in their applications to enhance communication with their own users.
Through specialised API, the SDK edition allows users to utilise Cacoo differently from other Cacoo editions.
Some of the unique advantages of the SDK edition include:
• Autonomous control over access to diagrams. Limitations and restrictions will be based on the management policies of client companies.
• No additional cost and restrictions on the number of third party users (client side users).
• License to replace Cacoo logo on the loading and editing screen, thereby maintaining the brand integrity of the client company.
• Option settings such as specifying canvas size and setting restrictions on file upload can be built aroundthe requirements of the client’s services.
Key features that Cacoo API provides:
• Diagram viewing and editing, image display, acquire detailed diagram information, acquire structures through XML processing, deleting and copying specific diagrams.
• Coauthoring on diagrams. (For SDK edition only: users can affix user names and icons without registering with Cacoo.)
• Commenting on diagrams.
Cacoo SDK has already been introduced to several advertising agencies in Japan including HAKUHODO,
DENTSU, SEPTENI (Internet Advertising), OPT (Interactive), GREE, CyberAgent. Banner ad production and
management agency, Creators Match Co. Ltd, was the first client to adopt Cacoo SDK into its ad production management tool, ADFlow™.
Specifically, ADFlow™ is a banner ad creation and order submission management system that provides a
visually rich interface for client agencies to work directly with production companies on the creation andmanagement of ads. The integration of Cacoo SDK in the next version update of ADFlow™ would allow direct editing, instructional annotations, viewing, and sharing.
“We have been looking to update ADFlow™ with the addition of features that could enhance the visual
experience and communication flow for users. Instead of developing these features from scratch inhouse, we decided it would be better to employ the Cacoo SDK and incorporate Cacoo’s userfriendly interface into our service.” said Mr. Go Keiju, CEO, Creators Match Co. Ltd.
Information on Cacoo SDK pricing is currently only available on request. Prospective users can obtain more
