Business App Developers Now Reach 10,000+ customers through Vtiger CRM’s New App Marketplace

Share Article

Developers that build business apps and extensions can now reach a growing pool of over 10,000 businesses using Vtiger CRM through its app marketplace. The marketplace automates customer acquisition, app deployment, and billing, so that developers can focus on building great app and extension experiences.

Vtiger's new app and extension marketplace is transforming how developers that make business apps and extensions acquire, support, and retain customers, and deploy their apps.

For a marketplace to succeed, it must have a large base of users. In this regard, the new Vtiger marketplace is well positioned to succeed. Since its release in September, more than 10,000 businesses have already upgraded their versions of Vtiger CRM to gain access. With new downloads of Vtiger CRM Open Source exceeding 30,000 per month on Sourceforge alone, open source use of the marketplace is also set to grow rapidly. The marketplace also opens up to to Vtiger's CRM's cloud edition users in December, putting the estimate of businesses with access to the marketplace at between 25,000 and 50,000 by mid 2015.

While access to a large, new market is attractive, perhaps of even more significance is the marketplace's low risk and customer acquisition costs. While the cost of customer acquisition through traditional channels such as advertising continues to increase, the marketplace offers developers a reprieve from the constant demand for marketing dollars by enabling developers to list apps and extensions on the marketplace for free. Businesses using Vtiger can then search or filter on apps and extensions, read detailed descriptions, see screenshots, read reviews by other users, and post their own reviews, ensuring that developers and their extensions grow in visibility, credibility, and use over time.

Additionally, regardless of whether Vtiger CRM users are using an on premise or cloud version, app developers need no longer worry about installation support or billing. Users interested in an app or extension can, in a single click, pay for and install any app or extension. For a 25% fee, Vtiger handles billing and remits payments to app developers monthly, enabling them to focus on building and improving their extensions and apps.

In its first 60 days live, the marketplace has already attracted dozens of developers and boasts apps ranging from tools that map out a business’s contacts and customers, to new price books, discount handling modules, keyboard shortcuts and beyond. Prices of current apps range from free to $200.
