I work for a Recycling company in the UK.
We have set-up a store locate type system to be put onto our company website. Using a company called streetmap.biz
The way we've decided to use it is a little different as it does not find store but Service providers in a particular area. It searches by the type of services they do and give your the nearest first.
The user chooses the search critrea as shown in "searchscreen.gif"
and then brings back the results as shown in "resultscreen.gif"
The data is held on the streetmap.biz server and we sent them the original data in an excel format and they uploaded this for free. We are looking to update this data frequently (at least once a week but possibly more often) and they would charge each time they upload. We were told that we could use a SOAP interface.
I have no knowledge of XML or SOAP is it possible to send the data from Our systems to the other companies server?
as you can tell from my less than articulate questioning I am not very technically minded!
