Getting started

AppDirect AI marketplaces offer the ability to create a diverse catalog of AIs that can be used for various purposes, such as data analytics, legal support, or marketing content. Our intuitive platform allows you to create custom AIs with ease, regardless of your experience level. You don't need to have any coding knowledge to create AI applications as our platform and UI are designed to accommodate all levels of expertise.

AppDirect AIs are powered by the latest AI language models. They can help you summarize complex data or get granular level information on a wide range of topics. You can chat with an AI to get answers to your questions on a wide range of topics. Configure multiple data sources (docs, URLs, and so on) for the AI to build a knowledge base that is relevant to the purpose of the AI. AIs continuously learn with every interaction. Your questions and inputs help shape what AIs learn with each interaction.

You can also share your custom AIs securely with others in your team or organization. AppDirect delivers robust enterprise-grade features that enable you to specify who can interact with your bot and to what extent. They help to protect confidential information, simplify collaboration, and ensure appropriate usage.
