4 Advantages of No-Code Software for Building Internal Tools

March 21, 2022

No-code tools bring so many advantages to an organization. They relieve developers of the grunt work and repetitive tasks often required to build applications. For anyone with no coding experience, the ability and satisfaction of designing and constructing an app from the ground up is incomparable. That's why we built Blaze: we take care of the coding and free up your engineers' time so you can focus on improving and delivering your vision as quickly as possible.

Knowing how and when to leverage Blaze can provide incredible value to your customers and colleagues. You can build tools like a customer portal, customer service portal for returning products, new product launch workflow, and new employee onboarding dashboard from start to finish in a matter of hours rather than months.

What is No-Code Software?

Using no-code app builders, you are able to create applications without writing a single line of code. If you don't have any coding experience, this is a terrific option, but it sometimes means you get restricted to the available features. With Blaze, we built our no-code software to be easy to use and powerful to give you the flexibility of realizing your vision, no matter how big.

No-code development on Blaze also allows you to still use code when you want it. We help you focus on creating the task-specific logic you require instead of worrying about the program as a whole. By relying on the platform to handle routine operations, you free up time to work on more complex features or specific business logic.

Reasons to use No-Code in Internal Applications

There's a lot of reasons to use a no-code tool to create your next application or project. Here are four that stand out.

Launch Quickly

Traditional software development is much more time-consuming. No-code applications takes less time to get up and running since the application gets constructed using visual tools, and you can add specific functionality with just a few clicks of a button. Compared to typical applications, research shows a 50-90% reduction in development time.

Low Cost

Developer time is the most expensive part of a software project. Hence no-code apps tend to be less expensive. Your team's developers are paid thousands of dollars each month on average, so even if you pay the toolmaker a monthly charge, it is unlikely to be more than a fraction of that. You may use this cost argument to persuade your management team. Show them the figures and change their minds in an instant.

You will upgrade No-code apps’ built-in functionality in tandem with the platform. That means you don't have to worry about doing any maintenance. It's easy to update your app to the newest version of the software if you need a security repair or if an API change requires it.

An added benefit is the platform's readily interface with other systems. Apps that don't require coding can easily share data with other programs. Zapier, Airtable, Discord, and a slew of additional apps could all get included here. Having the ability to integrate with them in a few clicks may save you a lot of time and effort.

Great Support System

There is a lot of help available if you run into problems creating a no-code application. The citizen developer community has grown significantly in the past few years. From Reddit forums to sites like No Code Founders, you'll find abundant resources to help you with your project.

As a result, no-code is also a great option for beginner coders because of the degree of support. Enable your junior engineers to work on no-code apps if all your senior devs are busy with client-facing products.

Limitless Opportunities

Finally, making no-code apps is a lot of fun. Whether you're an engineer or a non-coding manager at a company, you probably like the creative process of turning new ideas in reality. What you and your engineering colleagues might not like is the tedious backend work that goes along with so many projects. Blaze becomes your backend engineer that does all the data connections and integrations for you. In addition, Blaze becomes your frontend engineer that gives you all the components of your interface to drag and drop.
