We developed, tested, and implemented an HR Open Enrollment app that went live in 45 days with our no-code App Builder tool.
Low-code and no-code application platforms continue to gain popularity across all industries. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 70% of new applications developed at organizations will use low-code or no-code platforms–up from less than 25% in 2020.
These low-code and no-code technologies empower organizations to develop applications quicker without the need for IT resources, therefore reducing the burden on already overworked developers and engineers.
Since Jitterbit offers its own no-code App Builder, we decided to put it to the test.
Last October, we hosted our first virtual hackathon for 40 business and IT professionals to show off their talents and use our no-code App Builder tool to create a business app that solved real-world organizational challenges.
And, wow, did they deliver!
We invited customers and Jitterbit team members to participate in a two-week virtual hackathon.
Several teams from across our customer base and internal business operations all took the challenge to submit their best business app idea. The selected teams received one-on-one application and development coaching and App Builder support throughout the event.
Hackathon participants used App Builder to develop many new apps.
The virtual hackathon sparked innovation and collaboration. The most popular app ideas focused on organizing customer contact data and managing leads.
Teams made up of people from sales, marketing, finance, and operations worked on developing apps to improve workplace efficiency and productivity. A sampling of the ideas were apps focused on:
- Invoice management
- Lead tracking
- Field service management note-taking
Using Harmony and App Builder, we created an HR Open Enrollment app that went live in 45 days.
We couldn’t bid adieu to our first hackathon without putting ourselves to the test. Using the App Builder tool within our unified Harmony platform, our HR department built an app that automates the manually intensive benefits enrollment process.
The HR Open Enrollment app significantly reduced the time for employees to complete their annual enrollments, and the new automated workflows boosted our HR team’s productivity – and morale! Plus, it went live for employee use in just 45 days.
Solve problems creatively and increase productivity with App Builder technology.
No-code and low-code integration platforms empower your business technologists and other business users, reducing the workload for your already overworked IT teams.
At Jitterbit, we love to help our clients and employees leverage technology to solve problems creatively. To learn more about how we can help you leverage LCAPs, check out Harmony, our App Builder tool.
