Alpha Anywhere

We use Alpha Anywhere to develop large scale business applications. So far, we haven't found any real limitations. This is exemplified by my response to my customers who frequently ask, "Is it possible..." I always interrupt them before this sentence goes any further by telling them, "with our development platform, anything's possible" (then we have to discuss whether the time/cost is worth the added benefit of what they're requesting).

ProntoForms is well suited when it is important to quickly collect data in real-time. It does this excellently and helps to simplify the whole process of capturing data.

Cons

Alpha Anywhere

  • Whenever I'm asked to criticize Alpha Anywhere, my first comment refers to the documentation. For sure, they've made some improvements, this year, but I still wish it were better. Because I moved from another development package, I really had to start learning from scratch... I've been at it, for years, and I still feel like I have a way to go. The good news is that Alpha has a very active Message Board and there are lots of people who generously give their time to answer questions and help solve problems. There's no "tech support" line to call for help. Alpha DOES offer a paid "mentoring" service, which I used, several times. Unfortunately, my experience with the mentors wasn't as positive as I hoped it would be.
  • Alpha needs to improve its "templates" to make them more modern for users. I've never had a complaint from users, but I'd like my applications to have a newer, flashier look.
  • Alpha advertises itself as "codeless" programming. It is! You can certainly develop an entire application without writing a single line of "code." Unfortunately, that application will be pretty basic. If you're a serious developer, you'll want to learn "javascript" and "XBasic"... it'll come in very handy, as will an understanding about how to create SQL views and queries (and, Stored Procedures), etc.

ProntoForms

  • Customer facing forms so that the user does not need a subscription to fill it out. As of now, I have no ability to send a customer a form to fill out, so we have to use other methods to do so.
  • Tools that give account owner ability to create custom outputs. Being that I have design and development experience and would be more than capable to design and launch my own custom outputs, I do not have the access to do so.

ProntoForms is user friendly and very intuitive. It doesn't take much time to learn how to use it. Customization is also a breeze.

The customer support for pronto forms was great for me in the only instance that I have had to use it. I called the phone number for ProntoForms customer support, they were quick with the correct answer for me and very reassuring.

Alternatives Considered

Alpha Anywhere

Alpha Anywhere is a more robust, complete and lower cost solution for rapid desktop, web and mobile application cross platform development.
Russ Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProntoForms

We looked for versatility of product and cost effectiveness when trying to choose vendors. Even though the product can be set up by the user or administrator, the more complex parts of the form required help to be done right. Vendors needed to be able to offer their services to get this done in a timely fashion. ProntoForms hit all the marks. We looked at other vendors and they just couldn't replicate or form closely enough.
