December 12, 2023

Marketplace platform and digital commerce leader develops solution with simple, intuitive interface that enables users to build custom AI bots

SAN FRANCISCO Dec. 12, 2023AppDirect, the world's leading B2B subscription commerce platform, today announced the development of its AppDirect AI Marketplace, an upcoming marketplace solution that allows technology providers and channel partners to easily create no-code personalized AI bots to enhance customer experiences and streamline operations. AppDirect's AI Marketplace is designed to empower users to easily transform AI bot ideas into reality without needing any coding skills, while also offering a secure platform for sharing and effectively monetizing bots in various marketplaces.

With AppDirect’s simple, intuitive interface, users can build AI bots based on their choice of popular large language models, such as ChatGPT, Llama, Bard, or Cohere. By providing specific training data, including files, websites, and drives, users can program AI bots to focus on the work they need to accomplish. Technology advisors could train their AI bot to deliver new business insights for upsell opportunities or Enterprise organizations could create an AI bot to summarize specific HR policies to quickly and accurately address new hire queries. As experts in specific domains, these AI bots can be private, available to an organization, or eventually shared and monetized on the Marketplace.

The AppDirect AI Marketplace arrives as the demand for AI tools across industries shows no sign of slowing down—with generative AI products projected to surge to a $1.3 trillion market by 2032. The unique combination of AI available through the Marketplace enables AppDirect to assist the global B2B landscape in quickly leveraging AI and reaping the benefits of its possibilities, like improving operational efficiencies and creating opportunities for monetization through digital commerce and distribution.

“AppDirect has over a decade of experience in assisting organizations around the world to expand and monetize ecosystem and digital service strategies,” said Nicolas Desmarais, chairman and CEO at AppDirect. “Combining our marketplace expertise, digital commerce platform capabilities, and the massive application of AI, AppDirect is in a distinct position to accelerate and democratize AI adoption for non-technical users that buy, sell, and manage technology.”

The AppDirect AI Marketplace is in its beta phase, with a gradual rollout planned for 2024.
