What is White Labeling?
It is a protocol that allows our partners to personalize Apty applications. In other words, White Labeling gives license to our partners or clients to customize the logo, identity, and label of our applications and to use as their own.
Why White Labeling?
Branding is critical for any business to establish a loyal consumer base. Having the company’s branding consistent across all applications boosts trust and credibility in the eyes of customers and viewers. At Apty, we care about our partners’ brand. White labeling ensures that our partners get the best of Apty without compromising their brand identity.
Where to find it?
|PATH: Apty Admin Console > System Settings > Branding|
Using the path mentioned above, you can find the Brand Customization screen provided by Apty in the Admin Console.
How to White Label?
In the Brand Customization screen, there are several options available for our partners to rebrand the applications of Apty. Here, you can change the default titles or names into your own branded labels. Also, you can personalize the icons by replacing the default with the link to your company logo.
In the Admin Console, "Brand Name" appears on the sidebar content panel across all applications. You can customize it easily by replacing the default with your brand name, as displayed below.

Visual consistency in an application is very important in delivering a memorable user experience. Be it the fonts, the navigation bar, the logo, or the call-to-action buttons, colors used in these elements, throughout the application, create a sense of brand identity in the eyes of users. That is why Apty white labeling feature provides a customizable "Accent Color". Here, you can change the color of the “login” button on the login page.
