About

Forest Admin has been designed to help developers save time and to provide business teams with a tool tailored to their operations, at scale. At Forest Admin, we’ve developed an “admin panel as a service” allowing any web-based company to skip all the design, development and maintenance of their back office.

Technically speaking, Forest Admin is an open-source plugin which analyses your data models and automatically generate an admin API on which business teams can work on. Building such tool required us to re-think the entire architecture of our product where we would never access our client’s data, introducing a new class of product in the SaaS world.

How big is it? All apps need a back office, which means we have an impact on virtually … all web related businesses! We’re currently on-boarding more and more fast-growing companies (ex. Qonto, Heetch, Carbon Health…) at an incredible pace and we want to accelerate our expansion.
