How to Use App47’s New UI

App47 Feature Spotlight: SSO Group Synchronization

As we’ve mentioned before here on our blog, a key part of the App47 model is our ability to customize the last 5% (roughly) of the product to better meet our customers’ needs. That looks different for every customer, of course. For some, it’s meant tweaking the...

Integrating G Suite MDM with App47

This week, we just did a demo of our abilities to integrate the G Suite MDM with App47. A few of our customers, like Avery Dennison, are doing this already, so we thought we’d take a moment to share why we think this is a good approach to consider. If...

Enterprise Integration with App47

Although we’ve talked about it before, enterprise integration, as we call it, is a critical part of App47’s ability to scale quickly while still looking like a tailor-made solution. We hinted at this last week in our post about how App47 appears built to...

App47: Built to Fit Your Business

Just last September, we floated an idea: despite being an off-the-shelf solution, App47 can behave like a tailor-made solution within your business. In fact, we ran an entire series on customization within the App47 platform, stressing the idea that we are able to...

App47: A Custom Product (Without a Custom Price Tag)
