Louise: Hi everyone and thanks for tuning into the Life in Low-code podcast. This episode focusses on the things we love about low-code. I caught up with a number of people who work with our Liberty Create solution who are more than happy to share the low-code love, keep listening to hear what they had to say.

Paul Frossell, Product Manager: The thing I love about low-code, is the combination of its power and its speed. It’s got the power to build any amount of software you can imagine and can do it very quickly.

Meike Schulz, Consultant Business Analyst: So, for me there’s always been a certain wow factor to it. In my job I work with a lot of customer development teams and sometimes when we discuss how to achieve certain functionality it’s amazing to just be able to say just give it a go, try it out, because it’s so quick to configure.

Nicholas Egbaran, QA Tester: Recently they just released the application, test studio application and it’s a really amazing application and as a tester it’s really beneficial for us as testers, beneficial for developers as well and for customers because it’s very fluid. What they have developed is something that because it’s low-code, it’s working in the same format as a low-code, like a drag and drop makes it so easy for us to regularly playback a test, it’s just an amazingly fantastic application, fantastic tool.

Delphine Andre, Business Analyst, Service & Delivery: What I love about low-code is that it’s a little bit like playing Lego, grabbing blocks or in our case bits of functionality, putting them together to deliver your product. However, with our code studio, we also have the ability to go a step further in tailoring your application. So basically, we have the best of both worlds.

Meike Schulz, Consultant Business Analyst: So, for me the main thing is that the customer can now do some coding of their own directly into the platform and they can then share that so if a customer was using multiple applications, they could use that same piece of custom functionality across several applications and even share that with other customers if they want via the community app share.

James Redfern, UI/UX Developer: As a UA developer, I love how quick and easy low-code is to use.

Mark Hawkins, Senior Support Specialist: The nice thing about Create is that because it is modular in the way it’s designed basically, from a support perspective anyway, I can jump into any build or any configuration and because the tools are fairly easy to follow and standardised across the board, generally I’m picking it and trying to find the flow which makes life a lot easier.

Delphine Andre, Business Analyst, Service & Delivery: We can work with builders, UX specialists, developers, technical architects and many more. So basically, our teams and skills vary depending on your product and your needs.

Mark Hawkins, Senior Support Specialist: I think it does empower them to all of a sudden start creating definitely more business focused, process management applications in-house as opposed to having to go to their IT teams for any specialist knowledge, all of a sudden you can have a couple of training courses on the platform and start to integrate into your business work flows a lot easier than you used to be able to in the past. Taking the Excel spreadsheets method, as a lot of people seem to do, is to take that further and start making feature rich and content rich business applications online that will cut down workload and help your business processes and work flow.

Meike Schulz, Consultant Business Analyst: Within the shortest timeframe you get to see how people build their experience and their knowledge of the platform, how it evolves, how they become better. To be honest one of the favourite parts of my job, is I get to witness the team’s confidence in themselves and that they are building grow, and in my opinion, it leads to happier and stronger teams overall.

Louise: And that’s a wrap! For me it was interesting to hear so many different reasons why low-code is a great solution to work with. A huge thank you to everyone at Netcall who took part in today’s podcast. Your passion for this technology is so clear, keep up the great work!

Many solutions, such as eforms claim to deliver digital transformation. But what they actually mean is that they will transform the front door and leave the rest of the citizen journey largely untouched. There are many stages of a citizen journey from request to fulfilment. If those stages are not transformed you get lots of rework, rekeying and errors. Resulting in inefficiencies, cost, unhappy citizens and employees!
