Anti plagiarism software APIs help integrate plagiarism detectors into CMS, CRM or LMS you use at work. Thus, your university or company’s staff won’t need to login to a plagiarism checker website, every time they need to scan files for similarities. They just keep on working in their corporate LMS or CMS accounts and run checks for plagiarism right there.
APIs also help integrate seamlessly. This means that a plagiarism checker will operate without glitches and correlate with your LMS or CMS design.
You can apply for adjusting plagiarism checkers up to your needs in the most accurate manner possible by adding or deleting certain functions. For example, you might need some more options to be developed, namely a possibility to check documents for similarities not only in English, but also in German and French.
