Like driving on a mountain road without traffic signs, decision makers are often blind to the twists and turns that present themselves when they are buying software to extend their website's capabilities or transform it entirely. After all, hands-on, driver-seat control of a product is often not possible until late in the research process or, worse, after the sale.
To empower companies from the onset, Episerver is proud and, well, pumped to announce inclusion in Microsoft AppSource, a destination to help business users find, try, and use software as a service (SaaS) apps from Microsoft and its partners. What AppSource provides is a way to easily and quickly test drive Episerver Digital Experience Cloud for Commerce™ before committing—while simultaneously validating the solution among Microsoft Dynamics 365 users who are looking to seamlessly launch a commerce website available through integration.
"Transparency is at Episerver's core, and AppSource is the perfect place to showcase our solution to Microsoft customers since they can see for themselves how easy it is to use," said Justin Anovick, Vice President of Worldwide Product at Episerver. "We're confident that once a person takes Episerver Digital Experience Cloud for Commerce for a spin within AppSource, they'll want to hand the keys to their colleagues - regardless of their role – so they can see it doesn't take a rocket scientist to use our product."
