IT solutions company ITBLOCKZ partners with Betty Blocks to build new applications and extensions to existing apps using the no-code platform.
PRESS RELEASE: The Netherlands – 4 September 2018 - Betty Blocks, the leading no-code application development platform provider, today announced its partnership with IT solutions provider, ITBLOCKZ. With expertise in the low-code area, ITBLOCKZ has also embraced no-code. Now using both Uniface and Betty Blocks, they can build new applications for new customers as well as extensions to existing applications rapidly.
ITBLOCKZ consultants have been building applications with the low-code platform provider, Uniface. Their extensive experience with the low-code platform gives them a strong foundation for using no-code. Building with no-code makes application development even faster and easier for both the developers and the customers.
As a software company knowledgeable about low- and no-code, ITBLOCKZ found Betty Blocks through a mutual connection. The block duo then came together over the need to provide existing customers with other solutions, find new customers and to make application development even simpler and faster.
“We want to give both our customers and our consultants a credible alternative to Uniface,” Jan Lex Draak, General Director of ITBLOCKZ, said. “For various reasons, there are a lot of changes in the Uniface world. Our goal with this partnership is to help our customers even better. We can help them using our Uniface knowledge, but we can also help them using Betty Blocks. Some of them are looking for alternatives in the low-code/no-code world and we want to be able to continue in helping them.”
After seeing the potential of no-code for its customers, ITBLOCKZ saw greater possibilities with Betty Blocks as its own no-code solution.
“It was more than a practical decision,” Draak said. “No-code is easy for the customer as well as the citizen developer. The Betty Blocks platform makes it easy to build extensions to existing (Uniface) applications. It’s also easy going to web using Betty Blocks, and easy to build mobile apps. That’s what the market wants now. It’s another benefit that the time to market is very fast.”
”Our team knows Uniface inside out, and soon we’ll know the Betty Blocks platform inside out,” Draak said. “We can provide solutions for our customers by maintaining their Uniface applications and building new functionality using Betty Blocks.”
“Our partnership with ITBLOCKZ demonstrates the logical transition from low-code to no-code,” Aad van Schetsen, VP of Channel Sales at Betty Blocks, said. “I formerly worked at a low-code application development tool provider and when it comes to rapid application development, switching to a no-code platform provides even more ease and flexibility for software developers. Therefore, more IT solution providers are either making this transition or adopting the Betty Blocks no-code platform from the start to help their customers achieve their digital business goals.”
ITBLOCKZ is a smart, agile software company in the Low-Code and No-Code space. Using both low- and no-code platforms, ITBLOCKZ builds applications for businesses seeking to adapt their business processes, divide into modules to modernize or migrate to other technology and expand with web or mobile modules. With Betty Blocks no-code platform, they realize new functionality at lightning speed. This is done for new applications and for extensions to an existing (Uniface) application.
