If you want to create custom sales applications and integrations, specific to your company, industry, and market, you can do that without losing the excellent Showpad sharing and tracking capabilities. Showpad's enterprise-grade deployment and permission settings allow you to stay in control of who has access to each sales application, and content analytics help you see what content works and what doesn't. To create these custom Experience Apps for your sales reps, you can use our Software Development Kit and API Services, available on the Showpad Developer Platform.
You will need a developer or an agency to create the package. As an administrator, you have the option to upload, edit, duplicate, update, grant access, and find your existing Experience Apps in the Online Platform. No further coding is required to link, share, and edit the assets stored in Showpad.
These applications can be mobile-friendly calculators, configurators, personalized content navigations or interactive presentations. The possibilities are endless. Experience Apps are compatible with all Showpad mobile apps (iOS, Android, Windows) and with Showpad's Web app.
