The Ambition FTP/SFTP service provides organizations with the ability to programmatically send Ambition data to be processed and displayed across the platform - a perfect option for connecting data warehouses, proprietary systems, and a variety of third-party software existing in the market today.
You can enable as many FTP/SFTP integrations as needed to capture your entire activity pipeline, the rule of thumb being that you will need one integration per system and/or dataset.
For example, if you wish to connect a database or phone system you will most likely need to enable and setup two FTP/SFTP integrations.
In order to ensure an efficient FTP integration process we highly recommend working through each step of the provided checklist.
- What employee activities are you wanting to track within Ambition?
