Integration

Merlin Project works perfectly with other applications. Regardless of where your data comes from, Merlin Project will import it completely. In fact, Merlin Project can also export data to many other file formats and applications as well. Here is a summary of integrations with other applications and technologies, and how Merlin Project works with them.
