Today Skuid announced general availability of the Brooklyn release of its cloud user experience (UX) platform, hosted on Amazon Web Services. With this release, Skuid customers can bring together data from disparate enterprise software systems to build bespoke cloud applications without writing code.
Delivering a superior user experience has become paramount in driving increases in end-user adoption, satisfaction and productivity. And agility matters.
As customers and markets rapidly evolve, businesses need to quickly develop new applications or change existing processes. However, the demand for development services has grown faster than the capacity of IT organizations.
This scarcity of resources and the complexities of working with older systems has driven the need for a new approach. Skuid is a UX Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is a new approach to application development for addressing these acute pain points.
With Skuid’s drag-and-drop, point-and-click platform, “citizen developers” securely connect to company systems of record and assemble apps with a fantastic UX, tailored to their needs. Skuid apps require little or no end user training because they behave the way people do.
The technology becomes a logical, natural extension of the way humans actually work. And it’s easy to adjust the apps to support unique and changing needs, without creating headaches for IT. Previously, Skuid was available to companies using Salesforce®.
With the new release, all organizations can now experience the accelerated development, elegant user experience, and breakthrough business productivity currently enjoyed by hundreds of Skuid customers and millions of users worldwide. Skuid has quickly become the clear leader in this new category of no-code UX platforms.
“Companies want to innovate faster all the time. But writing and maintaining code slows them down. There are lots of systems of record out there already. We don’t want to change those. Instead, with Skuid our customers can create a compelling ‘system of engagement’ so their employees and customers can work faster and smarter,” shares Ken McElrath, Skuid CEO.
“With Skuid, companies design applications to work the way their users work. And they don’t need to write or maintain code to make it happen.”Customer Mansour Chatti, Co-Founder at Saasli, says they’re building complex enterprise applications and tapping into data from multiple sources, including Salesforce®, Hubspot, Netsuite, Intercom, various SQL Databases, and Google Analytics. For Saasli, this new tool will dramatically improve the productivity of their users by giving them full visibility into their data for the first time.
Skuid was founded in 2013 on the simple belief that enterprise software should stop forcing people to behave like machines. Instead, apps should behave more like the humans who use them, so everyone can thrive in the digital world. With Skuid’s simple-to-use but incredibly robust cloud front-end design-and-deploy platform, anyone can connect to disparate data sources, assemble highly complex, made-to-order applications, and instantly make changes, all without writing code.
More than 5 million users across 32 countries use Skuid to engage with each other, with data, and with new customers in meaningful ways. For more information, visit http://skuid.com/.
What sets Brooklyn apart is that for the first time, we can create truly comprehensive applications for all our users, whether they have access to our enterprise software or not. Plus, we’re doing it quickly and with ease. There’s no other tool that would allow us to do this.
