Thanks to Skuid we have built our whole business on Salesforce. We track patients, medications, appointments, doctors, housing facilities, leases, utility bills, contracts, billing, caseloads, tasks, vehicles, vehicle maintenance etc. etc. Without Skuid the prospect of building customer wizards, custom pages that are visually appealing is possible but cost and expertise prohibitive.
This is how cool this software is. I got bids from companies to build out our custom UI for us and the bids came back at over $500,000. I hired a team of developers to develop a custom UI and portal on a different platform and after a year they did not have a working prototype.
I found SKUID, plugged it into Salesforce and within days I had a working prototype. I terminated the relationship with the developers and built out my custom platform. I can put any field anywhere I want. I can have tabs, calendars, images, wizards that all are created declaratively. Yesterday, we had to enter a bunch of data by hand into the system company wide. Realizing it would take a lot of time to click through all the pages to add the information I created a button on a page that loaded a data entry page where all the patients where listed and they could quickly tab through and enter all the data at once. Tomorrow I will remove the button and we will be back to normal. Had I needed this quick tool it would have cost me thousands and taken too long to implement.
If your brain can think it Skuid can typically get you there in short order. It is amazing. Salesforce is just a relational database. Skuid let's you tap into all that data and display it however you want. You want a pop up with data in it, you got it. What about a table of information with a button that opens up subdetail in that row, no problem. Need graphs and charts, easy peasy. You have to see it to believe it.
It has totally changed my company and my usefulness at my company. We saved over $500k in development costs AND I have over 100 new requests to improve the software and over 90% are implemented already. . .I am a sole admin developer with over 500 licenses.
I sound over the top. . . And I am, this software empowered me to totally change my company. It is amazing!
