Best Value Hybrid Integration Platform
PilotFish integration software is a connection point to or from 90% of the top insurers, nearly every kind of entity in healthcare, many manufacturers and government agencies. Our reputation speaks for itself and it is why we have earned a 5-star rating from our customers.
PilotFish makes licensing simple. We do not charge per connection, per interface or per transaction. Licensing is based on maximum hardware configuration or on an on-demand model where you only pay for the time you use (similar to the AWS model). PilotFish’s base price is almost half the cost of its leading competitor AND offers double the maximum hardware configuration allowed. PilotFish Enterprise users can expect to pay as little as 25% of what the leading competitor charges for their Enterprise License!

“We have been using the platform for years to extract clinical data from multiple EHR systems, normalizing values and populating a data warehouse. Our staff was easily trained and support is always a phone call away – although seldom used. This is the most user friendly and easy to use transformation software that produces comprehensive and precise results. Can’t really identify any negative issues.”

PilotFish – More Licensing Options
PilotFish offers licensing options to meet any business requirement. Users can choose between On-Demand (Pay-As-You-Go) AWS Model or One-Time Licenses with annual maintenance. PilotFish software can be deployed in the cloud, on-premise or in any hybrid combination.
Qualified organizations can become Value Added Resellers and resell PilotFish software, as well as providing services to implement PilotFish Solutions. Organizations can choose to bundle PilotFish with their applications, services or equipment to take advantage of the cost savings of a restricted license. The monthly maximum cost for a restricted license is just 1/3 that of a full end-user license. Organizations may also be eligible for additional discounts for pre-purchasing inventory and for quantity discounts.

PilotFish – Easy Deployment
PilotFish makes deployment easy. The PilotFish eiPlatform for Windows is a standalone eiPlatform/eiConsole installation which runs as a Windows Service. Users can choose other operating systems, such as Linux. These are distributed via a WAR file to run in an application container.
PilotFish also offers cloud installs. For the cloud, Docker containerization provides a quick and easy setup.
Deployment using PilotFish’s On-Demand model can be run on any kind of infrastructure – including Azure, AWS and others.
PilotFish – Not Limited to API-Based Integration
Unlike our leading competitor, PilotFish does not limit you to just API integration. We understand that in today’s world, organizations need the flexibility to integrate ANYTHING to ANYTHING – ANYWHERE.
It is important to note that when the workflow is transactional, API-led integrations have specific limitations. That is, APIs work on a request-response basis. You have to string together multiple API calls to pull information and perform functions. Then, your system has to go out and grab data in a sequence to utilize APIs. The problem with this is that a huge percentage of business integrations are transactional and message-driven. A data source generates or publishes a message, then that message goes downstream to the consumer. It is not a series of start, stop, pull or request-response.
You need to consider that the API model is restrictive for transactional interfaces. Yes, you can make it work, but know that it’s just not going to perform as well and it’s not as fluid as it needs to be.
An API model can be very limiting, affecting performance – whereas PilotFish can handle all of your throughput. PilotFish has the ability to handle millions of messages quickly, seamlessly and the message is processed end-to-end. This is a big advantage over an API model.
Unlike our leading competitor, PilotFish provides a consistent means to adeptly handle not only large batch-oriented data and standards transaction messaging, but also highly conversational XML and JSON APIs – including new versions of data formats or industry standards that you need. Configuration just requires changing a handful of options in the application.
PilotFish’s robust integration framework bridges the gap between legacy and new systems, applications, devices, equipment and databases and we’ve made it easier than you ever imagined. PilotFish is architected to be infinitely extensible with our Open API and flexible to meet any integration requirement. It is both future-proof and responds agilely to near-term changing requirements.
|PilotFish’s Robust Integration Framework|
|PilotFish does not emphasize APIs over other integration types. For most backend internal system integrations, APIs simply cost more to develop and maintain without adding any real value. In today’s complex environment, you need a tool that will handle any and all integrations well, including APIs.|
|PilotFish excels in messaging, events and transactional integrations – including all standard and proprietary data formats. We support a wide range of industry standards (X12 EDI, HL7, ACORD, OpenTravel, HR-XML, DTCC, MISMO, etc.)|
|PilotFish provides end-to-end transaction visibility for all transaction types with its eiDashboard.|
PilotFish – Offers the Highest ROI
Net Return on Investment / Cost of Investment
There is no doubt that integration suites like PilotFish can give you a tremendous Return on Investment (ROI). The question is not which integration suite gives you a high ROI, but which one gives you the highest ROI.
Calculating ROI is a function of not only the Net Return on Investment but also the Cost of Investment or:
The PilotFish integration suite has proven time and again to not only provides a higher Net Return on Investment, but the Cost of Investment is far less than competing products, resulting in a much higher overall ROI.
When the far greater productivity achieved with PilotFish and consequent huge ROI gains are calculated, the overall ROI delivered by PilotFish is even higher.

PilotFish – Ease-of-Use and Higher Productivity
PilotFish offers the world’s only Graphical Automated Interface Assembly Line where configuration replaces coding. PilotFish’s proprietary 3-Pane Visual Data Mapper offers drag & drop mapping which replaces scripting. PilotFish was architected so that non-developers and business analysts could be key players in the building, managing and maintenance of interfaces.
- In the eiConsole, users create interfaces using prebuilt configuration panels – no coding or scripting required.
- In the eiConsole’s Data Mapper component, transactions are all mapped simply and quickly following a consistent user interface and methodology regardless of the format.
- The Data Mapper generates W3C compliant XSLT in code view and in real time. Users can switch back and forth between the graphical view and the XSLT view by toggling between tabs.
- With PilotFish, your teams only need to learn and use one solution – no matter what the data format or integration scenario.
Let’s look in detail at PilotFish’s approach:
|PilotFish’s Assembly Line Configuration Process|
|PilotFish offers users a graphical 7-stage graphical Automated Interface Assembly Line process for building, managing and maintaining interfaces. This configuration vs code-driven process enables business analysts and non-developers to perform a large portion of the integration work freeing up developers for more strategic projects. Each and every interface is configured using the same process.|
|The PilotFish Assembly Line approach ensures that each interface is configured in the same way, thus removing dependencies on who created an interface or how. This facilitates the ease of maintaining interfaces even by those who did not originally create them.|
|PilotFish’s focus is 100% on integration. The PilotFish graphical Automated Interface Assembly Line guides users from the ingestion of source data at one end to routing data to the target(s) at the other and includes the processors, mappings and listeners in the correct order.|
|The PilotFish Data Mapper with built-in transformation modules and format builders automates mapping, no matter how complex, using drag & drop (no scripting required). The Data Mapper utilizes W3C standard XSLT generated under the covers. Users have the option of working in a graphical OR code view and can switch back and forth between the two.|
PilotFish’s products are architected to minimize complexity, yet be infinitely extensible and flexible. Our mission was to create the world’s easiest to use and most intuitive integration platform and we succeeded.
