"BettyBlocks for business innovation"

What do you like best?

Fully webbased solution, development environment as well as runtime. This means that you don't have to install any IDE and you can developen anytime anywhere. An the thing is: it really work and offers a robust and stable development platform that works as expected. I Always get really anoyed when peolpe start explaining how something should be working, when it actually isn't. BettyBlocks just works as expected!

BettyBlocks is a platform that I could really recommend to business end-users. It is so intuitive that business developers with a little IT affinity can start developing pilot applications after only a day or so of training.

What is also nice is that you can build the first version of your application on production and then very easily switch to an OTAP way of working afterwards.

What do you dislike?

The speed of development can quickly lead to a trial&error way of working. This can lead to obsolete objects and actions, which polute your application

I think the workflow part of BettyBlocks can an should be improved. Now you quickly have a lot of actions and you lose the overal view of how the (automated) processes work.

I also lose overview quickly on the custom models, when I import some complex API's. Maybe a per-API grouping would help

Recommendations to others considering the product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are doing developing some new Insurance products. With BettyBlocks we have developed 2 backoffice applications with an API for the web front-end. In one of these applications we have created a full value chain by integrating our supplier into the BettyBlocks application. Our experience is that with BettyBlocks you can perform commercial product testing and supply chain / process testing at the same time. In this way you can make a much better business case at the end of a product pilot, because you have an overview of both benefits and costs.

"Fast and Fun to Work With"

What do you like best?

I love the instant usage of the application so I can see results and have a feeling how the system works.

What do you dislike?

At the moment I haven't met any roadblocks as I got started. There are some minor issues when creating the apps when you re-use the same name for an app which you deleted. There could be a validation that the app name has already been used. Maybe I lack knowledge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try to do something and see how you get immediate results!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Businesses are struggling to find good, fast and affordable software developers to get an idea into the market. Be it an internal tool to improve business processes or offering online services to integrate with the process of customers or service providers. With Betty Blocks business people are able to create web apps. Sure they need to learn some basics. But the time to market is much faster and the solutions are aligned with the business needs. Typically business and IT have a mind gap and don't speak the same "language". With a platform like Betty Blocks both parts can work on a "same" thing to discuss ideas and see quick results and would be able to evolve the solution together. If you build multiple apps based on the same platform, systems become standardized. Imagine Betty Blocks is your MS-Access or Excel where anyone in your company can quickly build something and get their problem solved without expert knowledge!

"Very intuitive to use platform to quickly create data-centric applications"

What do you like best?

Betty Blocks offers all elements needed to create custom web applications in a nice looking and very easy to use interface. Apart from the basic aspects (datamodel, screens) it is the additional possibilities (workflows, actions, external interfaces, rights, expressions) that really make this platform very powerful.

What do you dislike?

Not much. A better way to create 1:n relations would be nice, and build-in multi-language support (but that is coming soon). Overall, most wishes are added quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Whenever the system you are building is mostly about registering (and viewing/editing) data, Betty Blocks is a perfect solution. The main benefits are the short development time, and the flexibility that remains when the system is in use.

"Great platform for building applications"

What do you like best?

Based on my recent experience with Betty Blocks platform, I must say that it is a great tool for building applications without any coding. One of the most impressive things is that you can set up a database models with relations between them very fast and very easy. Also, the platform can be connected with other services and technologies.

What do you dislike?

Very little. There are some limitations that need to be bypassed and that can be challenging work. However, that may not be a drawback, it just requires a bit of manageability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Betty Blocks for building web and mobile applications, combining it with other services and technologies.

"No-nonsense no-code development platform"

What do you like best?

The ease in which a (non-) developer can create business applications at high speed. If you know the business, you can create an application for your own organization.

What do you dislike?

The accordion layout of the back-office might take a moment to get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Betty Blocks is one the best platforms to develop applications with. This no-code platform is developed to support "citizen developers" and does an excellent job at that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We build web applications and even mobile applications with Betty Blocks. Digitalizing and automating all kinds of forms, streamlining employee information and improving key business processes are just some of the benefits we realized for our customers.

"We're developing 100% on the Betty Blocks platform now"

What do you like best?

I like that we can now deliver much faster to our customers. We can shift the focus to other aspects of entire the customer journey. Also, we can now hire a different profile for application development so we can grow much faster as a company.

What do you dislike?

Betty Blocks should focus more on reusable parts to prevent repetitive tasks and develop (or not develop at all) even faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have gained a lot of competitive advantage. The pace at which we develop fully tailor-made business applications broadened our market and allowed us to shift a focus to other parts of the process which strengthens our entire proposition.

"Get results, develop applications at top speed"

What do you like best?

BB gives you the possibility to work in very short delivery cycles and have numerous feedback loops with your customers. The application grows organically.

Some features are not yet completely mature, but they are very open to tips and feature requests.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Come and visit an Academy night to have a taste of the spirit of the company and the way it views the world!

"Betty Blocks: The only limitation is your imagination"

What do you like best?

Everything about Betty Blocks is rather unassuming. For any given task you need to complete, there are typically multiple ways of getting it done.

From simple to complex, Betty Blocks can do it all. It’s been used to build API endpoints, forums, blogs, business sites, brochure pages and multimedia sites. It can handle languages, advanced security permissions, and customizing of the manager for client logins.

What do you dislike?

The codebase of Betty Blocks doesn’t utilize some modern PSR standards such as autoloading and namespaces

Don’t let this prevent you from trying Betty Blocks though: with age comes wisdom, and the entire Betty Blocks platform is quite capable, mature, secure, and extensible. However, you’ll see developers criticize the code patterns that can not be accessible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In fact, if you’re typically a hand coder, or non-tehnical person Betty Blocks may be the best choice for you. The learning curve to creating great application is extremely small.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like any tool, it has specific use cases where it fits best. Betty Blocks is a great choice for a non-technical person who needs to give clients protected access to editing content.

Betty Blocks is excellent, with a pretty strait learning curve, if you’re a non-technical person, or developer, and want freedom to design how you wish.
