AppDirect Partners With elastic.io to Seamlessly Integrate Business IT Systems With Commerce Platform
elastic.io Facilitates the Integration of AppDirect's Commerce Platform with Customers' CRM, Accounting and Other Business Systems
SAN FRANCISCO, October 18, 2018 (Newswire.com) - elastic.io, a Germany-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) provider, today announced its partnership with AppDirect, the only end-to-end commerce platform for succeeding in the digital economy. The partnership enables AppDirect customers to seamlessly integrate their existing business IT systems such as Salesforce and NetSuite with the AppDirect commerce platform.
“More and more companies are looking into using the power of online marketplaces as a means to increase their sales, attract new customer groups and grow their business,” said Renat Zubairov, CEO of elastic.io. “However, the time and cost intensity related to the need of integrating a marketplace with existing IT investments are usually among the key points of consideration. With the elastic.io platform, AppDirect can now reduce the time required to connect their commerce platform to their customers’ existing APIs, systems and databases – thus, significantly reducing the project costs.”
While AppDirect’s commerce platform offers lead capture and customer management tools, it needed to access the functionality of a single CRM which many customers use as their system of record across their entire portfolio of products. By enabling standardized connectors, customers can configure the data flows between the marketplace and their CRM to meet their unique business needs, helping to reduce error-prone manual processes and saving representatives time.
“Helping businesses have access to the tools they need is critical to AppDirect, and by partnering with an iPaaS provider like elastic.io, we’re allowing our customers to maximize investments they’ve made in existing business IT infrastructure,” said Dan Saks, AppDirect President and Co-CEO. “They’ll be able to connect to a variety of mission-critical systems with the AppDirect commerce marketplace in a matter of hours.”
The announcement was made at AppDirect’s annual summit Engage, the only digital economy summit where developers, service providers, and businesses of all sizes attend to learn, network, and collectively transform the way people do business in the cloud. The event took place Oct. 15-17, 2018, at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, Calif.
