Meet the cloud storefront builder.
Let developers easily build and manage a storefront to showcase their products.
AppDirect's Listing Platform makes it easy for developers to integrate, manage, and showcase their services on your Application Marketplace. Documentation and support is offered to facilitate the onboarding process, which can be completed in under an hour. AppDirect helps you embrace the developer community and add your own services to your marketplace in no time at all.
Multiple Product Types
AppDirect automatically configures the listing and integration steps for developers based on their product type, subscription, and user management settings. The AppDirect Listing Platform allows you to on-board both downloadable and web-based products. Developers can also select their billing management model, such as one-time or recurring billing, as well as whether they offer a single or multi-user solution. These options allow us to tailor the on-boarding steps to each developer’s needs, thereby accelerating time-to-market on your store.
Storefront Content Management System (CMS)
Allows developers to build a storefront on your marketplace for their product. The CMS lets them showcase a product overview page, features and benefits, flagship customers, media coverage and reviews, documents and videos, screenshots, demos, support details, and pricing and editions. The CMS gives them the ability to follow the latest in marketing best practices.
Pricing and Editions Management
Developers can create an unlimited number of editions for their products. They can bundle any number of items with each edition and create a pricing configuration that best suits their service. Vendors can offer a freemium model or charge flat rates, one-time setup fees, usage rates, metered usage rates, or any combination of these pricing options. Vendors can also include multiple usage rates per edition. For example, charging $X per user and $Y per gigabyte. They can also create multiple payment plans for each edition, offering different billing frequency options, such as yearly or monthly pricing.
Life Cycle Management
The AppDirect Listing Platform includes a versioning system for developers to manage both an in-development and an in-production version of their products. Developers can improve their profiles and update their integration in a risk-free environment, then push it to production after meeting quality assurance standards.
Push Approval Flows
Allows distribution channels to curate their marketplace and maintain the highest product quality standards. After developers complete their integration or want to update their product, they can send a request to publish to production. Channel Administrators are notified and can perform quality assurance on the product in a sandbox environment before approving or denying the push to production. The platform also offers automatic quality assurance checks to make sure products don’t get published to production with incomplete profiles or dysfunctional integrations.
