As a cloud-based platform, Axinom platform is equipped with an extensive API setup and supports the integration of multiple external services and products, payment gateways, advertisements, and more.

We make sure to seamlessly integrate the operator’s own and preferred 3rd party systems and services custom to their needs, increase interoperability, streamline their flow of data and processes, and define more productive media processes. We believe in custom integrations and the potential of tailored solutions.

Backend-frontend communication

Thanks to Axinom’s Frontend SDK, operators can be sure that all the communication between backend and frontend applications is standardized for all the platforms. Axinom’s Frontend SDK is built to control and simplify the communication between backend and frontend applications built by third parties.
