Top 7 Things to Consider When Selecting a No Code App Maker Platform

 

A couple of years ago I was searching for a no code platform that our team at Versa Cloud could use to streamline the development of work process apps for our clients — most of which are towns and municipalities across Massachusetts. Along the way, we discovered AppSheet. And we haven’t looked back since.

As I explained in a recent blog post, AppSheet has become our preferred app development tool as it gives us the scalability and flexibility that we need to build efficient and highly-customizable solutions in less time — saving our clients’ money, without having to make any compromises regarding performance or quality. In short, AppSheet beats the competition and is reasonably priced.

AppSheet wasn’t the first tool we tried. We experimented with just about every available solution, in a diligent trial and error process. So in this article, I will share some of the things that we learned throughout our journey in hopes of sparing you some of the trouble that we went through.

How to Make an App—Things to Do in the First 7 Days

 

Most teams in most industries will get more productive with custom mobile apps. Construction, transportation, utilities, oil and gas, agriculture, manufacturing, shipping ... the list is long. If you work in one of these industries and think a mobile app would help your team, this article is for you. It is a step-by-step planner on how to make an app and implement it for your business use case.

The article will not advise you to hire software developers. In fact, absolutely not. The article tells you how to create your own app yourself or with the help of your own team. You need no knowledge of software development or programming. Instead, you will use a no code app platform called AppSheet that is explicitly designed for business professionals like you. In general, the concepts in this article apply to other no code platforms as well.

A note of caution: every no code platform will claim you can create apps in seconds. So does AppSheet. That is true in a literal sense but it is also not true in a practical sense. You will have an app working in seconds or minutes. However, to build a good app, the one you want with the features you want, it will take some investment of time. I believe a week is sufficient, investing a couple of hours a day. Hence, the "7-day planner"!

How Versa Cloud Uses Process Apps to Automate Site Inspections

Municipalities are often at a disadvantage when searching for operation management applications. On the one hand, cities and towns require access to the same types of powerful solutions that large enterprises use. However, they are typically confined by tight budgets.

These are the challenges we face at Versa Cloud, where we supply operation management solutions for a variety of organizations across multiple states. Many of our clients are local towns and municipalities that need to carefully track and report where their taxpayer's dollars go. It’s therefore crucial that we keep time and costs at a minimum when developing apps to offer competitive prices that align with our clients’ budgetary needs.
