Case from a developer of local applications for Bitrix24

Now, in theses, I will give an example of a useful local application that I had the opportunity to implement:

  1. An extensive local application was developed, consisting of several smaller modules. This allows me to create complex solutions that fully meet the client's business needs;

  2. The main purpose of my application is to make sales easier. I created a tool for transferring the deal and its further processing from one application to another, which allows managers to more effectively manage the sales process, while increasing productivity and efficiency;

  3. Each smaller module was responsible for a specific task, for example, confirmation of the correctness of the agreement, sending for revision, generation of documents necessary for the agreement, shipments, a general dashboard for a more detailed view of statistics on agreements and much more;

  4. Another important aspect of the application is its integration with ShipStation to generate labels and calculate shipping costs. This allows the manager to automate the process of sending goods and reduce the time needed to process orders.

Among all the possible advantages of using local applications, it is worth emphasizing possible potential problems when creating applications, namely:

  1. Correct connection. It is important to write the path to your application correctly; screen 1.png

  2. Do not forget that your application must be on a server with the https protocol;

  3. It is also important to give your application the appropriate rights, because it often happens that you try to access elements for which you do not have rights.screen 2.png

Applications for Bitrix24 from Avivi

As of this writing, the Avivi team has developed more than 100 different applications and modules for the Bitrix24 platform. Among them are applications of all levels (with one-way integration and two-way, without an interface part and with its own display in the Portal), highly specialized solutions for a specific customer, and applications for mass use by all interested parties. It should be noted that the development of an application that works equally in the Cloud version and on-premise takes about 30% more time than a module purely for the Bitrix24 server edition.

I am sure that each of you can find something useful in the gallery of applications from Avivi:

But in any case, our team and I personally are always ready to develop an individual solution for you that will meet the needs of your business. So if you have ideas but don't have an app yet, share them with the Avivi managers and let's create a new local app for Bitrix24 together.
