Overall Satisfaction

Outsystems is used by us for rapid application development to give us custom software that works according to our practices, rather than us having to work in a way that suits a particular software system. Some example systems include a budget tracking system and a calendar system. These allow us to keep control of our data rather than surrendering them to somewhere in the cloud!
  • Very fast way to get prototype and proof of concept systems up and running
  • Most custom features we might want in an application are pretty easy to add, but you can shell out to C# if needed
  • Very easy roll-out of applications from dev to test to live
  • The underlying SQL database can get pretty complicated if you keep changing data structure - sometimes we define the database ourselves to get better control over it
  • It's allowed us to get systems that help our remote volunteers and department leaders to get access to information that was previously stuck in proprietary systems
  • The development times are very fast, so an idea can be a system very quickly to respond to a particular need
It does just what we want, and I'm not aware of any good alternatives for a comparable price
Not really geared at small businesses in terms of pricing, but if the pricing model were amended, it would be perfect for them
