Busting myths about business apps, low code style

  1. 1. Busting myths about business apps, low-code style
  2. 2. One size doesn't fit all Spreadsheets can only manage parts of a business. And even though Enterprise Resource Planners (ERPs) cater to every aspect, they're pre-built and inflexible. Every business has a  unique selling proposition (USP). And unique businesses need customized applications.
  3. 3. Low-code platforms make it easy to build custom apps. They’re fast, reliable, and inexpensive.
  4. 4. But I’ve heard stories… Is low-code really reliable? Let’s debunk some common myths about building apps using low-code platforms
  5. 5. Myth 1: Programming is rocket science Only until you try it! Programmers need logical aptitude and a basic understanding of programming languages  A low-code platform like Zoho Creator offers drag-and-drop functionality to make app building easy Millions of apps are built on Zoho Creator. 85% of those apps are made by non-programmers.
  6. 6. Myth 2: Spreadsheets can do everything a business needs Spreadsheets are fine as long as you only need to store and access data To focus on competitive strategies, however, it's important to automate mundane tasks like generating reports and sending notifications between teams. That’s where spreadsheets fall short. With a low-code platform like Zoho Creator, you can create apps that automate your business processes
  7. 7. Myth 3: Buying a business app is easier than building one There are hundreds of apps to help manage specific functions like customer relations and employee details But they're rigid and almost impossible to customize when your business structure and functionality evolve Low-code platforms let you modify your apps as needed Example: You’d have to wait for your software vendor to release an update that complies with that new government regulations. With a low-code platform, you can modify your apps for compliance any time
  8. 8. Myth 4: Low-code apps can’t solve all of my problems It's true that most low-code platforms promise endless possibilities but have limited features But unlike those platforms, Zoho Creator is built to be flexible. You can build an app to cover any need, from basic order management to a comprehensive CRM.
  9. 9. Myth 5: It’s easier to maintain a spreadsheet than an app Because Zoho Creator and other low-code platforms are cloud-based, they require almost zero maintenance You don't have to upgrade your computer to upgrade the application Your apps are stored in and run through Zoho's servers Your data is secured with encryption
  10. 10. Myth 6: It’s tough to teach old employees a new app Not true! Nowadays, using mobile devices is child's play Anyone who’s used a computer or smartphone can use low-code apps  because… GUI or Graphical User Interface-based drag- and-drop features simplify user interactions
  11. 11. Myth 7: I’ll lose my existing data Relax. You won’t. Almost all low-code platforms have at least one migration tool built into them Zoho Creator can convert any spreadsheet into an app in a few clicks—without affecting your data You can also migrate from MS Access, Caspio, and Filemaker
  12. 12. Switch to a low-code platform and transform your business Why hesitate?
