How to strucutre application

My application needs to make a call to a webservice via an HTTP post.
The webservice responds with an integer and a string. I’ve got this
working.

I need to call this web service from a couple of different controllers.
I don’t want it to render a view. Would I put this functionality in
application_helper.rb or where would the best place be to put this?

Regards,

What I’ve done in the past is have a FooProxy class tha handles the
details of talking to the webservice in question. It also makes testing
a little easier since I just have to mock out the FooProxy class.

There, or a model of it’s own.
