Breakthrough Technologies Launches Loco: A No-Code Citizen Developer Platform to Allow Anyone to Build Data Management Apps for their Enterprise
-New Product is a Fast, Easy, Secure, and Cost-Effective Solution for App Development, With No Coding, Development Language, or Database Background Necessary-
EVANSTON, IL (June 7, 2018) – Breakthrough Technologies today announced the launch of Loco, a no-code development platform that anyone can use to build the apps they need. By using Loco, businesses can build data management apps for their enterprise quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. Using Loco, they can tailor the app to do exactly what they need it to do.
Organizations today have more data than ever to manage, compile, track, aggregate, sort, collate, and tabulate. In the past, citizens who needed a custom app solution to achieve these tasks were forced to hire developers to build it, even though the problem they were looking to solve only required a simple digital solution. Loco gives these citizen developers the power to take app development into their own hands, building and customizing apps to their own specifications.
“Through all of our experience, we kept hearing the same thing: clients wanted a software solution that they could tailor to their unique needs without it costing them a fortune and without them having to go offshore to get it,” said Doug Wilson, Managing Partner of Breakthrough Technologies. “After building software products for two decades, we realized that most of the time we’re brought in to solve a problem that requires a simple digital solution via a website or application. The ability for any user to build such a solution didn’t exist, which is why we built Loco.”
“Loco gives anyone within an organization – whether the CEO, HR Department, Project Manager, IT, and everyone in between – the ability to build a custom application without a single line of code,” Wilson continued. “These applications are available on multiple devices and allow team members to manage their shared data and shared documents from whatever platform they find convenient.”
Loco is completely customizable, allowing users to build the app they need to solve the problem they have. Apps can be designed within minutes from any device without any formal programming training, then deployed to the cloud in seconds and made available to teams immediately. Basic usage plans for Loco start at $100 per month, with a cost of $400 per month for unlimited usage.
Loco is available at https://loco.build/.
“We built Loco from the ground up with the realization that the apps our customers need begin and end with their data,” Wilson said. “That’s because most business applications are really about two things: allowing users to manage data and allowing users to manage documents. Loco was built to streamline and integrate both processes.”
Because Loco is completely customizable, the apps that can be developed are restricted only by the user’s imagination. Since the user invents the data and the structure, there are no limits to the types of apps that they can construct. Each app is available to team members of the user’s choosing, or can be designed for private use.
