Servoy review by <span>Kevin G.</span>

Servoy is all that it claims to be

What do you like best?

- A library or function already exists for most any purpose

- Powerful, flexible data handling capabilities

- RAD thanks in part to so many common functions (navigation, security, etc.) being available

- Use of the eclipse IDE

What do you dislike?

Not exactly a "dislike" but 1 issue I had: Builds could take a very long time when connected to legacy data (Visual FoxPro DBF files, using JDBC).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend using Servoy (both the company and the product) since my own experience has been singularly positive. I think Servoy is especially well-suited to getting a certain kind of legacy app rewritten and up and running. In our case, simply reproducing existing features and functions was always accomplished fairly quickly and efficiently, and the resulting product was also cleaner, more maintainable and more user-friendly - no small feat given the upgrade from FoxPro to a true multitier architecture.

Beyond this general recommendation to someone considering Servoy, I would also suggest two things:

1. Try to do a proof of concept that includes a real business/programming concern (using your own data) since this should provide a good picture of what a larger Servoy project is going to look like.

2. Use Servoy resources to the extent possible, which often saves time & money in the long run despite some upfront cost.

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

- Updating a critical legacy application originally written in FoxPro 2.5 and rewritten in Visual FoxPro approximately 15 years ago

- Primary benefits are 1) Servoy expertise & experience, and 2) rapid development

Servoy is a class act and works very hard to please their customers

What do you like best?

Very personable company that you know will be there to assist you with your development needs. I encourage anyone looking for a powerful and robust development platform to modernize their existing desktop, thin client, Cloud or SaaS applications to take a serious look at the development environment we chose, Servoy.

What do you dislike?

The concerns that I raised with Yvo Boom, Managing Director, were addressed. This is why I continue to advocate for Servoy because they listen to their customers and work hard to make your transition and your projects successful so they are completed on time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a few minutes to pick up the phone and contact them. They are great people that want you to succeed and will help you every step of the way.

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

Needed a replacement for Visual FoxPro and needed our application to work on Windows, Macintosh, Linux on desktop, thin client, Cloud and SaaS. We received the Servoy Large Data award for managing a database size that exceeds 20TB. We host our own mail tracking and currently track nearly one trillion pieces of mail since over the past several years.

What Low-Code Development Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Servoy - rapid application development for in-house apps and small/medium ISV's

What do you like best?

- Very fast realization of working software

- Great team, fun to work with, listens to customer needs

- Ability to work with Javascript and ability to create custom components

- Annual Servoy World conference

What do you dislike?

- Not in all aspects 'the latest and greatest' in tech. That's also not needed, but in some cases we revert to additional tech to complement Servoy (we also use node.js and react.js)

- Would be great if the community was bigger and more documentation was available

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dig into the possibilities of Servoy: Work with their support staff, attend the annual Servoy World conference, read documentation, watch video's/webcasts, engage with other customers

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

Minox provides accounting software for the Dutch SME market, with a focus on finance professionals. We were able to rapidly realize a market ready application with Servoy in 2014/2015. Currently Servoy serves as a stable backbone for our solution.

Successfully developed and hosted multi-tenant Servoy solutions for over 10 years

What do you like best?

What I like best about Servoy is the people behind the product. They have always done what they have promised, even when it was not easy.

What do you dislike?

The Servoy development environment has been consistently updated every year for the past 10 years. Sometimes it is a challenge to keep up with all the changes, however it is good to be using a product that stays current.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We highly recommend this product.

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

During this period of time our customers have been able to process hundreds of millions of ACORD form records for insurance applications, losses, binders, certificates of insurance, etc.

Reliable, potent, easy, fast... Best ever development platform

What do you like best?

Servoy has a beautiful API and plugins that allow us to develop application in a very short time. It was not very hard to learn (even I had never written anything using JavaScript, touched HTML and seen CSS).

We've been able to develop work of art / award winning solutions within record time, having an average of a few hundred concurrent users a day,

The whole team at Servoy is very friendly, helps a lot and listens to our needs.

Definitely the best move I've ever done is from Visual FoxPro to Servoy

What do you dislike?

From Servoy... Hard to say.

Maybe documentation for a beginner is not great

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check the official forum and the Wiki.

Use the forum as an starting point to get things clear. Servoy also offers a Servoy101 training that is very helpful and intensive.

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

We develop applications for the Medical and Legal industry in the UK, and previously I was a developer building business applications for companies in different countries.

Servoy allowed me to build applications for my customers very rapidly, offering my customers secure, fast and reliable solutions.

Productive Full-Stack JavaScript Development Environment

What do you like best?

Amazing productivity with automatic data-binding to any JDBC database and a WYSIWYG editor for point and click UI design. Begin coding quickly with the simple JavaScript API. If you need more, there is the ability to extend with the Java API so nearly anything is possible.

What do you dislike?

Documentation is good, but could be improved.

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

As a consulting company, I have helped many different business create custom applications with Servoy. Generally its specialized workflows that don't have off-the-shelf software available. So there are lots of business rules, data entry screens, reports, client-side portals, etc.

The speed of development with Servoy beats any other platform, and is easy to maintain.
