How it works

Merlin is a data engine which enables you to import data from almost any data source. It is cleaned, re-organised, stored and displayed with ultimate flexibility to suit your needs. Simply put, you choose the data you want to use and how you want it to appear. Merlin does the rest, seamlessly.

Using Merlin’s powerful API gives you full flexibility to build anything from a feed to a website or an application. The CMS head used with Merlin is changeable, making no assumptions about data sources or method of publishing.

It’s an incredible combination: a completed work engine with phenomenal flexibility. The possibilities are amazing. It’s perfect for picky programmers who know exactly what they want. Customise the system, add your own head, determine the process… make it your own.

The system is compatible with your own templates and all coding languages. Merlin helps you to capture, collate and communicate data. Exactly how you want to. You decide.

Its flexibility is key, offering endless applications and impressive longevity.

The Merlin team are developers

With over 30 years of coding and IT support expertise, we understand what developers need.

They know what it’s like to be you. They’ve juggled with system flexibilities, business needs and end-user ability.

Your new project doesn't need to be another trip down the road to writing importers and exporters.

Just plug Merlin in. Merlin is designed with you in mind. Enjoy!
