Welcome to the new face of Business Catalyst

As we begin 2017, the Business Catalyst team is preparing for a new year, with new challenges, and new ideas, we kick of the year by bringing a new image to BC, with this new website. The site is designed with small and medium agencies in mind, presenting a fresher, more up to date image to our commercial offering. In the site you can find information on what BC is, what we offer for customers and what are the main selling points. 

Celebrate with us and get this special offer:

15% off for all webMarketing and webCommerce yearly plans upgraded until March 30th! To benefit from this offer please use the coupon code NEWBCSITE when upgrading the new site. Terms&conditions apply*. 

Together with the new site, we are excited to announce the pending release of what is undoubtedly the most asked for feature at this time, from the entire BC Community. 

SSL certificates coming to Business Catalyst in spring of 2017

You asked for it, and we listened. In spring of 2017 SSL certificates will be available for individual domains on Business Catalyst. The team is already working on the feature and infrastructure and operational work has been perform for the past 3 releases, preparing the ground work for the certificates.

We are working diligently to provide these certificates within the next few months, in a two phase approach. In the beginning, the certificate will be included in the higher plans and can only be redeemed as part of the plan, while later in the year the SSL certificate will be available as overage to all Business Catalyst plans. 

At this time we do not have any details related to pricing on the overage, but we will confirm them in due time as we approach the release date. 

BC App Store 2017 Outlook

2017 is an exciting year for the BC App Store and the Business Catalyst community. At the end of 2016, there were 59 apps in the store, 19 active developers and over 2,500 app downloads. The pace in which new apps are launching on the store is speeding up, the number of downloads is trending upwards, and the number of interested developers interested has increased.

Help shape the future of the BC App Store by voicing your opinion on the new BC App Store Wishlist. Need an app but don’t see it in the store? Let developers know there is demand for the app by contributing to the Apps Wishlist.

The community is starting off 2017 strong with amazing apps in the works. We can’t wait to show you the new ways Business Catalyst is being improved, extended, and integrated.

We hope this will be a great start to a terrific year. We are waiting for your feedback on the site through the blog comments or forums. 

The Business Catalyst team
