Today, on your smartphone you have an app store where you can find a dozen apps to have food delivered to your door, but we don’t have an app store where a large enterprise, like a bank, can find an app for income verification, or where an insurance company can find an app for processing claims. Every such application is custom built. We should wonder — why?
While the idea of such an app store is appealing, it’s important to note that there is no real app store without good apps, and there can’t be good apps without good tools and good building blocks. Think of the iPhone: what made the app store successful was the underlying building-blocks and tools that iOS provided – Camera, Location, Phone, etc. – which developers and creators could use to build new apps such as Instagram and Uber.
The desktop, still an important interface for business applications, never built similar building blocks for businesses.
Instabase is a platform for businesses to build customizable apps for automating different parts of their business. For example, a bank can quickly build an app that can automatically verify customer income in a fraction of a second by combing through documents such as camera pictures or scans of paystubs, tax documents, bank statements, and other similar documents submitted by the customer. The platform comes equipped with the tools for reading documents, data extraction and classification, natural language processing, and optical character recognition. It is designed to enable creators, developers, and organizations to quickly build complex business applications based on their needs.
Instabase also offers an app store, a growing marketplace of pre-packaged business apps for different industries, such as Income Verification, Adverse Media Analysis, Identity Verification, Trade Finance, Contract Analysis, and Financial Spreading.
