Add-on Marketplace!

Yes, as they begin getting traction they don’t try to create as many features to get more audience, rather they launch an add-on Marketplace.

  2. Leverage on partnered Add-on developers, who can also benefit from the platform
  3. Strengthen their product offering & widen the possibilities
  4. Eliminate the need for different workflows within the core product
