Create and develop your own applications using the same building blocks and incorporate your own business processes into the Redakt back office.
For many organizations, use of their Content Management System and its back office user interface is part of the marketing department's daily routine. It only makes sense to incorporate other business processes into the same system as well. With Redakt you can create a custom application that shares the same user interface.
So what sort of applications are we talking about? For example, if you're in the hospitality or travel business, you could create a booking reservation application. If you sell products or services, you could create a product catalog. Many organizations need a customer support or ticketing system.
In some cases, instead of creating full-blown applications, you may want to develop a simplified or restricted interface to other services that your organization uses on a daily basis. Think of a simple form to add new a new lead to your CRM system. Or a dashboard to track your key performance indicators. Or quick access to your Google Analytics website traffic and conversion overview.
Any application you create within Redakt can make use of all the technical components that Redakt uses itself. You can integrate your application with any other system or data store that supports external access. Kick-start your digital transformation and provide a single login and unified user experience for your employees.
The Redakt core system consists of a number of components and building blocks that have been designed to be generic and reusable.
Redakt's content management features are built on these components, but they can also be used to create bespoke applications within the Redakt system. Combine user interface elements and use Redakt's technical components to develop your own application in a matter of days.
All of Redakt's technology stack is available for your own bespoke application development. Below are just some of the ways you can use Redakt components for your own purposes.
