Businesses use no-code development platforms for various reasons such as:

  • Prototyping a new idea or a product
  • Automating processes or workflows
  • Building an application 
  • Automating simple tasks
  • Building a website.

However, finding the right solution that suits organizations’ needs is not easy as there are plenty of no-code software solutions in the marketplace. That’s why we compiled this article to inform business leaders on the capabilities and the features of no-code tools and the list of top vendors in the marketplace with their market presence and the capabilities.

What is a no-code development platform?

A no-code development platform is a software application that provides a visual development environment for users, often non-programmers or business users, to design and construct applications without the need to write code.

The popularity of no-code development tools brings the question of “Does no-code replace developers?”. However, no-code software was created as a business solution to complement core and enterprise solutions that require technical knowledge or coding abilities and that can be used by non-technical users that are often referred as citizen developers. 

This technique democratizes application development by bridging the technical need and practical execution division. No-code approach enables companies to quickly adapt and evolve, allowing non-technical employees to participate in the development process.

Top 7 no-code software solutions

While determining the vendors to examine in our research, we narrowed our vendor list based on some criteria. We used the number of B2B reviews and employees of a company to estimate its market presence because these criteria are public and verifiable.

Therefore, we set certain limits to focus our work on top companies in terms of market presence, selecting firms with:

  • 500+ employees
  • 200+ reviews on review platforms including G2, Trustradius, Capterra
  • at least one Fortune 500 reference

The following companies fit these criteria:

1- Creatio

2- Airtable

3- ServiceNow App Engine

4- Salesforce Platform

5- Quickbase

6- Jotform Apps

7- Microsoft Power Apps

We have analyzed the vendors in terms of market presence and commercials (e.g., free trial & price). You can sort Table 1, for example, by the ease of use ratings.

Here, we also analyzed the capabilities and features of the no-code software. As all vendors offer workflow automation and app building capabilities, we didn’t include these in the table. You can sort Table 2, for example, by the integration possibilities.

No-code software capabilities to consider while narrowing down your options

Workflow automation

This functionality enables organizations to automate business processes within their organization. When the conditions and triggers are established, the no-code program automates these activities, enhancing efficiency and decreasing manual effort of business users.

App building

No-code platforms enable users to build mobile apps using a user-friendly interface, which frequently utilizes drag-and-drop capabilities. Thus, individuals with little or no coding skills can create apps that satisfy their needs.

A restaurant, for example, could develop an app to manage table reservations. They can create an interface that allows customers to select a date, time, and table, and the system will update the restaurant’s availability in real-time without writing code.

Customizable UI

Businesses can design their app’s user interface to reflect their brand identity and improve user experience. This creates a consistent brand image across all digital touch points, potentially increasing customer loyalty and satisfaction.

AI/ML models

Some no-code platforms come with pre-built artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models. These models can be integrated into the apps to provide advanced features and capabilities that can aid in decision making.

Integration with other tools

No-code software frequently integrates with other tools and systems, allowing for easy data transmission across platforms. This capacity can assist businesses in developing a cohesive technological environment within their company.

Offline functionality

Applications that can run offline can be created using some no-code platforms. As a result, users can utilize specific app functions even when they aren’t online, and any modifications or updates they make will be synced as soon as they connect to the internet once. This guarantees that even in locations with poor connection to the internet, users may access and benefit from the software.

Customer support

No-code platforms offer customer service to help consumers use the platform and troubleshoot any problems they might run across. This ensures that customers can efficiently use the platform and address any issues they might run into and might take the form of tutorials, a dedicated channel, live chat, email, or phone support.

Data security

In no-code platforms, data security is a crucial feature. To safeguard the private information handled by the apps created on these platforms, strong security measures must be in place. This can entail safe user authentication and adherence to relevant data protection regulations. Data security ensures that all of the data associated with your company, as well as any data from users or customers, is kept safe and secure.
