Writing a C# integration using 2 REST APIs?

Hi all -

I'm currently working on a senior design school project whereby I need to write an integration of 2 SaaS systems, both of which expose RESTful APIs. The idea is to basically "pull data" from both systems, do some work on it, and update. All REST.

Up until now - all my previous C# experience has been mainly in console programs and some MVC web apps. My question is what is the best way to go about designing this? I started off creating a console app, and writing code using HttpClient to fire off GET requests.

Is there a more "professional," way of doing this? Is there a specific framework/library I should be using? I don't know why - but writing an integration of 2 systems as a "console program" seems wrong. I just need to know where to start.
