Low-code in SMEs

Today’s digital world is changing faster than ever before. SME organizations face a twofold challenge: how to remain competitive against the superpowers while also remaining flexible and progressive. How can you free up energy and time while strategically growing your organization? Low-code can be the key to digital transformation in SMEs.

The digital challenges within SMEs

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are navigating a digital age that presents both opportunities and challenges. Many SMBs struggle with outdated technology infrastructure, struggling to keep up with ever-changing customer expectations. In addition, limited IT budgets and resources can slow the adoption of new technologies. There is also a constant pressure to innovate quickly and stay competitive while ensuring cybersecurity and data protection. Furthermore, SMEs may struggle with integrating different business systems and efficiently leveraging business data for decision-making. All these challenges require modern and flexible technological approaches.

low-code in SMEs

Explaining low-code as a technology

Low-code offers SMEs an accessible way to create IT solutions without the complexity of traditional coding. Essentially, it enables teams to build and deploy digital tools faster and more efficiently, with the agility to respond to changing business needs.

Why SMBs need to embrace low-code

Level playing field with larger players

Low-code enables SMEs to launch and modify applications quickly, allowing you to be as fast or even faster than larger competitors

Maximizing limited resources

Instead of investing in extensive IT teams, low-code lets you use existing employees to develop customized solutions. We call this citizen development

Strategic differentiation

Low-code allows you to create unique tools and solutions that fit your exact business needs, something standard software packages cannot provide

100% fit

Traditional software can often be too generic. Low-code ensures that the solution built fits your organization’s specific needs perfectly

ROI of investing in low-code

Investing in low-code may initially feel like a challenge, given that it is an innovative approach to software development. However, once familiar, it offers remarkable advantages. Think more efficient development, flexible adjustments, and cost savings over time. By choosing low-code now, you are putting your company firmly in the marketplace and can respond quickly to changing needs.

Case examples of low-code applications

No two SMEs are the same, of course. So we list some common practical applications of low-code applications:

Customer Relationship Management Centralize customer data, track interactions and improve customer service, all tailored for your specific business
Inventory and supplier management Keep control of your inventory and optimize collaboration with suppliers in a way that fits your business model
