Blog Post created by mweitzel Employee on Jul 17, 2017

The 2017 App Throwdown is officially open!

The App Throwdown is our annual showcase for customers, analysts, partners, and prospects to see the coolest, most useful, and innovative extensions that provide customer intelligence, save costs, and enable businesses to close deals faster.

 

We are now accepting entries to see which application best transforms the average user into a CRM Superhero! 

 

If you are not familiar with the App Throwdown, it's our annual event that celebrates technology and innovation on the Sugar platform. It is open to everyone--customers, partners, hackers--who has ever done anything cool with Sugar. This could be integrating bot technology, like last year's winner Collab, or coming up with a slick integration for increasing productivity with other tools like Slack. Sugar execs, along with our community, will select applications who they feel are the best representation of a particular category--or superpower. Those winners will then be invited to demo their application live on SugarCon's main stage. You participate by simply describing it in 150 words and showing it off in a quick video. You can see last year's entries in the archive if you'd like an example. 

 

Your Community - You Pick a Winner!

This is your community--and as a community member, you have a voice! By "Liking" an entry, you'll have the opportunity to choose your favorite application--or "Crowd Pleaser". Not only will this app have bragging rights, but they will be invited to demo their application live on SugarCon's main stage for the chance to be recognized as the "Ultimate Superpower." And to sweeten the deal, this year's "Crowd Pleaser" will also receive one free pass to SugarCon!

 

Best Superpower Apps

Each submission can have up to two categories, a.k.a. "Superpowers" that helps describes how it turns the average user into a CRM Superhero. Once the App Throwdown stops taking submissions on September 1, the Sugar executive team will select one winner from each category. Each winner will be invited to present their innovation under the bright lights on SugarCon's main stage!
