SheetLabs - Turn Your Spreadsheets Into APIs Effortlessly

Sheetlabs turn spreadsheets into well-documented APIs, quickly and easily. Many businesses still share product lists, service coverage areas, or other tabular information with one another using spreadsheets attached to email. There are so many things that can go wrong with this. Sheetlabs was built with the goal of making it really easy for businesses to build APIs on top of their existing spreadsheets. Emailing weekly updates of your product list, service coverage, or your other spreadsheet is sooo last century. Creating an API helps ensure your customers are always using your latest data, and it saves everyone the hassle of dealing with spreadsheets manually. Creating an API to serve up your data needn't be time consuming or complex. Drag & drop your spreadsheet and Sheetlabs will import it automatically. Then create your API with just a few clicks, defining what data you want to expose and to whom. Finally, create accounts for users you want to access your APIs. Sheetlabs automatically generates documentation for your API, including specific code examples for a variety of common programming languages. All you need to do is point your users at the API documentation! Building an API via Sheetlabs puts you back in control of your data. You can restrict users to only access subsets of your data; no longer will you have to expose all of your data to a user just so they can look up one product occasionally. You'll have certainty that your API users are always using your latest data. And you can see exactly who is using your APIs and how often.
