Today’s technology market is ever-changing. New capabilities like generative AI are transforming the way business is done, and content is created. Every week, there’s a new AI platform to try or a trend to follow. Experience with tools like ChatGPT and ChatPDF is already paying dividends for individuals and companies alike.
Then, there are the constant updates and changes to existing technologies. For example, major SaaS platforms like Salesforce undergo frequent new releases and upgrades, requiring admins to learn new functionality and build familiarity with evolving workflows. Add to that changes in the market, including inflation, hybrid work, and supply chain issues, and the pace of change can feel overwhelming.
Unfortunately, these changes show no sign of slowing down, which means companies and teams must be ready to adapt. And that means their tools need to be adaptable as well. That’s where Skuid comes in.
The need for speed
Given the rapid rate of change in today’s tech environment, companies must act fast to stay ahead of the curve or remain competitive. One platform that allows organizations to do just that is Skuid. Whether managing Salesforce updates or keeping up with AI trends, with Skuid, you can meet business needs quickly and without code. Here are three ways Skuid helps companies move fast in an evolving market.
Developer resources are expensive and in high demand. Even top-priority changes to your application may need to wait weeks or even more for a dev to get to them. With Skuid, however, you can update your apps quickly without relying on custom code. Accelerate app development with Skuid’s declarative tooling, including 25+ packaged UI components and 30+ pre-built action types. Increase velocity, deliver quick turnaround on custom application projects, keep costs low, and avoid missed deadlines.
Skuid’s low-code/no-code platform allows you to build exactly what you need without compromising on design or functionality — and with delivery times that are significantly faster than code-heavy tools. This means your team can move fast, delivering requests almost as soon as they’re submitted.
Robust data connections
Skuid allows you to connect data from your existing platforms and customize workflows to your needs and preferences. Deliver complete solutions from top to bottom with data from platforms like Salesforce, ServiceNow, and AWS. Data connectors in Skuid also support common approaches like SQL, REST, and OData.
When your company adds a new app or wants to explore a new AI tool, you can quickly build a working prototype in Skuid that integrates the new system with your existing business data. Users can take action and draw insights from across your stack of applications in one experience, instead of bouncing between different pages and systems
Rapid prototyping and iteration
Skuid’s goal is to help our customers build apps that people actually want to use. That means focusing on UX/UI, streamlined navigation, and accessibility. It also means understanding user requirements and constantly gathering feedback on what could be better. Skuid lets you prototype quickly, integrating new data and insight tools with your existing business data.
Skuid’s low-code/no-code functionality allows teams to build a prototype or MVP in a matter of days, not weeks or months. Get your app in front of users ASAP, then incorporate their suggestions immediately.
Total business impact
What is the result of all of these capabilities and features? Going from idea to impact in days. That’s why over 600 organizations trust Skuid to support them as they deliver applications in record time. The results are impressive and include a 100% increase in productivity for one customer and a 70% increase in efficiency for another.
Use new technology to your advantage
With Skuid, you can also leverage new technologies and updates to current ones. For example, Skuid is always up-to-date regarding Salesforce’s latest updates, and our Skuid Skool courses offer educational material for several Salesforce-related use cases.
Skuid + AI
Skuid can be integrated with OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT and Dall-E 2. Skuid users are already incorporating this integration into their business applications and workflows. For instance, they’ve used OpenAI and Skuid to:
- Draft their description fields. Ask the AI platform to draft initial values for any field on a Skuid page. Check out the sample page here.
- Create a menu of actions powered by GPT. Create a list of actions that can be taken based on field data like “write response” or “draft counter offer,” then submit a contextually-aware prompt to the GPT model for each action. Check out the sample page here.
- Add sample data to their Skuid applications. OpenAI makes creating sample data to populate a test bed or sandbox table easy. Check it out here.
- Build an AI-powered chatbot. With ChatPDF, an OpenAI-powered platform that allows individuals to chat with a self-uploaded or cloud-accessible PDF, Skuid users were able to create an interactive chatbot for finding key information in dense text manuals.
