Strengths

  • iAPPS is a unified product suite which includes marketing automation, WCM, commerce, social and insights with a broad custom cloud solution enabling velocity to market.

Weaknesses

  • Although iAPPS has out-of-the-box features and integrations with a few third-parties, they need to expand on their API integrations with even more interoperability with third-party platforms and address more out-of-box functionality for international commerce. 

Key Differentiator

Each iAPPS implementation incorporates a set of flexible templates and modules to get you started quickly in building your shopping cart and associated pages with iAPPS Commerce Pro. From there, you can opt to fully customize these templates and incorporate any necessary custom application integrations to meet your unique business needs with iAPPS Commerce Enterprise.
