SEATTLE — September 21, 2016 — Indix, the product information company that provides structured product data via Data-as-a-Service, today announced the availability of its new developer portal that delivers an enhanced customer experience when running real-time API calls. Powered by the Apigee API management platform, the Indix Developer Portal offers simple access to its scalable and secure API, enabling companies of all sizes to build applications that anticipate, guide, and help consumers and organizations decide what to buy and sell.
In addition to an enhanced customer experience, the new portal enables users to communicate directly with the developer community as well as Indix. With improved documentation fully integrated with the ability to run real-time API calls, the developer portal provides faster, more comprehensive support capabilities and developer forums. Additionally, the portal offers easier ways to administer integrated billing for different applications and plans.
“Today, nearly every application and website is location-aware, and at Indix, we’ve built a platform to do the same thing for products,” said Sanjay Parthasarathy, CEO and founder, Indix. “Product Awareness is the capability to access rich and deep product information in real time from the web, sensors, and other devices. With our new developer portal, our customers will be able to build commerce apps and analysis tools through access to the world’s largest collection of structured product information.”
Indix offers product information on more than one billion products. The Indix Product API allows retailers and their developers to tap into the entirety of the Indix product catalog. The new developer portal and support tools will make it faster and easier for developers to build applications, such as curated ecommerce storefronts, customized product search, and personalized product catalogs that help drive intelligent product marketing and sales growth.
“Ecommerce is a not only a trillion-dollar market – it’s changing how everyone buys and sells products. APIs connect the many elements that contribute to a great ecommerce shopping experience – from products and pricing, to payments and loyalty programs,” said Ed Anuff, VP of Strategy at Apigee. “We’re excited to include Indix as another Apigee customer, as they leverage APIs to connect retailers and developers to a large collection of structured product information to drive digital innovation in commerce.”
