Pivot!!

Rajagopal Somasundaram @rajagopals

After our production release, we got some good transactions(300 APIs, 350 devs, 5000 transactions) and found that dev are mainly using it for discovery purpose. Also we saw searching for APIs is not only an issue but building them as well.

This process is common across domains!! There was a need for us to commercialize the product as well!!

We have pivoted our product to be domain agnostics API based platform focusing developers.

That's when our Unified API Platform(Yappes 3.0 ) was born which helps developers to Design, Build, Manage, Deploy and Distribute APIs.

We have set the Subscription based pricing model and released in product hunt(Yappes 3.0) which got good transactions!!
