About SuperOffice CRM Online apps
SuperOffice CRM Online has great extensibility points that allow vendors to create complimentary applications in and around SuperOffice.
While a great standalone CRM solution, SuperOffice becomes better with complimentary applications.
What are applications?
An application for SuperOffice CRM Online expands the CRM solution to resolve relevant business needs and lets you extend the capabilities of SuperOffice.
The key to any integration is that the application is relevant and adds value to customers in their sales, marketing, customer service, and/or business processes.
You can think of an application as a link to another cloud service. The link allows the other service to retrieve, present, or add data to SuperOffice.
If you use the APIs, which you will have to use to communicate with the database, it is an application!
All SuperOffice CRM Online applications get a unique ID to identify each integration within our environment.

SuperOffice will not bill, provision, or host partner applications. Instead, the App Store redirects to our partner’s websites where customers buy directly from the partner.
Standard and custom applications can incorporate the following external-facing integrations:
These integration types are referred to as Integration Services.
Standard and custom applications
Applications are either built to fit many and available in the SuperOffice App Store or one-off customization for your company or a customer's company only.
We're proud to release a new self-service portal for developers and application partners this year. It replaces the manual forms and let you handle more of the configuration yourself.
