Overall Satisfaction with OutSystems

We use OutSystems as an addition to our SAP systems. We especially do web and app development in OutSystems with a connection to our SAP environment. The connection is both ways. The developments we've done have met their goals, and we were able to speed up the arrival and departure of the barge handling (inland waterway) process by about 40%.
The event manager we built in OutSystems was a big success, as we could extend the SAP functionality but also improved the process tremendously.
On other terminals, SAP is not used, but Navision. Our goal is to have our external web sides integrated with SAP in Navision. At this moment it's a big challenge.
  • Very good user interface. Easy and simple to use. We were able to make a website for external users, without giving them training or an explanation.
  • The ability to upload/download documents as transport papers and customs papers.
  • The ease of developing. Development really speeds us up, and is very simple.
  • The possibility to solve defects/do changes in a very short time.
  • We had very much trouble with synchronizing data between an app in the central database. We had to take into account that the app was temporarily not online. Data synchronization gave us a hard time.
  • Changing characteristics of data elements. E.g. if the length/name of a data element has to change, a new data element is created and we need to adjust all software using this data model.
  • We've seen a positive impact, as we were able to handle our barges faster. This means the jetties are available earlier, and actually we can handle more barges a day,
  • The split of systems that departments are working in. Partially, they work in OutSystems and for another part in SAP.
None. I was not part of the decision process.
We had a connection failure between OutSystems and SAP. It took more than 2 weeks before Outsystems support came with a solution. Also, they changed the priority we gave to incidents.

Would you buy OutSystems again?


The development of the user interface is possible without a complete backend. Informing business users on how it will work can be done before the complex logic is developed. It gives us a faster ability to discuss the business process.
