Additions to the App Centre extends the functionality of its platform.
Spiceworks has released a developer toolkit, transaction processing capabilities and apps for the App Centre during its SpiceWorld event in London.
The developer toolkit includes advanced platform API’s as well as the Developer Edition of its IT management application. The transaction processing for the App Centre enables independent developers to sell apps to IT professionals.
Ed Shelton, program manager, App Centre, Spiceworks, said: "Millions of IT professionals rely on Spiceworks for the applications, technical information, peer feedback, and vendor connections they need to be more productive."
"We’re accelerating our App Center efforts in ways that add value to IT professionals’ days and provide independent developers and technology brands with a unique way to connect with IT professionals around the world."
Spiceworks has been using independent developers to extend the functionality of its 7.4 platform including Pepper Pack which gives IT professionals’ information to troubleshoot support tickets fast.
Other additions to the App Centre are Hatch Project Management, linkIT and Network Map which provides visualising tools to show what devices are connected to the network and which have been scanned by the inventory application.
Michael Maw, developer of the Pepper Pack app, said: "The Spiceworks App Center is a unique opportunity for the development community to reach a professional audience with enormous purchasing power."
"The platform is easy to build on and gives developers a new audience to reach with premium apps that are business-focused and can help professionals simplify their days."
