CRM is a Given – Low-Code is how you stand out Title ImageIf you’re reading this blog, you probably know a little bit about CRM and how it can help your business. CRM has been around for decades now and has grown and evolved over the years, from the Rolodex to spreadsheets to entire tech stacks that have everything from accounting, marketing, and sales software all in one.

What’s the next step? Low-Code/No-Code.

I’ve already written an overview of low-code/no-code which you can find here (Channelling the Power of Low-Code/No-Code), in this article, we’ll be talking about how it can help your business stand out from the competition while decreasing costs and increasing efficiency.

By using low-code or no-code tools, your business will become more agile. You can make updates to apps as needed in a matter of minutes or hours. Less coding means quicker implementation and less IT time spent on app-building efforts and bugs.

As IT demands increase, more and more staff are looking for solutions that will let them make needed changes faster and fulfil requests with fewer bugs – low-code app development is the solution.

Low-Code/No-Code Decreases Costs

Being able to build apps in-house means that your IT team can focus their time on making you money.
