Benefits of APS to application developers

  • Makes it easier for developers to reach their target market– APS are known to make it easier for Independent Software vendors to distribute their applications to service providers mainly by enabling developers to package their applications using a set of standards that are not only convenient for service providers but also familiar to them.
  • Minimize on time and resources– Since most hosting and telecommunication service providers have adopted the use of standard socket platforms for APS, developers who package their applications in APS find it much easier to distribute their applications by just plugging them into the infrastructure of telecommunication and hosting service providers.
  • Increase development options– APS make it easier for developers to either package their APS applications on their own or get the help of an APS packaging integration partner.
  • Facilitates cross-promotion and upsell of developer’s services– the design nature of APS is in such a way that enhances the workability of applications together and in a manner that can make it easier for them to be sold together. This therefore makes it easier for service providers to identify complementary services that can work well with a developer’s application and thus target them as potential application buyers.
  • Software updates management– APS make it easier to manage software updates. This is mainly because with an APS, a developer only needs to update his/her APS package and all the partners will apply the updates without any need for custom development.
