Make Open as App work for you

Get your business data ready for Smartphones, Tablets, Web, and chats. With Open as App, your data is turned into apps automatically while retaining full functionality, offering lots of design options, and being instantly ready for sharing. 

Combine all business elements in an app 

 

There are many business systems that contain valuable data like charts, calculations, forms, or lists. Open as App turns them into smart apps that can be shared easily while giving you full control of your data. 

“With Open as App, users can turn an Excel spreadsheet into an app without any programming skills. As a result, we are increasingly using mobile ways of disseminating information. The digitization DIY tool is 'hands-on digitalization for the user'.”

Michael Schneider
Head of Advisory & Risk Innovations, Commerzbank AG

Choose the type of your app 

 

Open as App's idea is to create apps automatically. Therefore, our system will analyze your data, suggest an app type that fits your data best and will therefore provide a good result.

 

Please note, this is a suggestion only and can be changed, e. g. if you would like to create a survey app from calculation data, you might as well select "Survey" and add your calculation later on.   

Combine elements in one app and add more app features

 

Once your app is published, you can add several elements to your existing app: Images and action buttons, calculations, lists, charts, images, print PDF, and surveys.

Add great features to your app

 

You can always add more tabs, elements or features to your app. After publishing, click on 'edit your app' or reopen your app in the app creator via the dashboard. Then go to "Edit/Pages and elements". There, with the plus on the right hand side, you can insert all kinds of new elements, including action buttons, e.g. for link opening, call phone numbers, jump to another element of your app, and many more.
