Big Red Cloud is delighted to announce the release of an API for our cloud accounting software available for use by software developers. The Big Red Cloud API will enable you to link your own software applications to Big Red Cloud’s accounting platform. Integrating Big Red Cloud into your system means that the accounts will be taken care of on the spot.

This could save you valuable time and money in running your business.

It can be used by existing Big Red Cloud customers’ software providers to integrate with their websites and systems. Additionally, 3rd party software provides can develop completely new products using our API as the accounting engine such as, e-commerce platforms, CRMs or specialised billing systems. Our API could give your software the competitive advantage it needs to make your business a success.

The Big Red Cloud API is bi-directional in nature. This not only allows you to read data from the Big Red Cloud platform but also to create transactions in your Big Red Cloud accounts from other systems.

The launch of this API is just another way we intend to help SMEs save time and money and give them a competitive advantage. The Big Red Cloud API is available for 3rd party software providers to use in their development of new systems or the integration of existing ones. If there are any enquiries regarding the use of the Big Red Cloud API please don’t hesitate to contact us at

After completing a Graduate program in Marketing, Marc’s impressive sales career began at Allied Irish Banks, Pitney Bowes and Panasonic where he received numerous Irish and European sales performance awards and consistently exceeded targets and expectations.
