KeyedIn Launches Rapid Application Development Platform
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Solutions has launched a Rapid Application Development Platform,
KeyedIn™ Flex Platform that can speed up development time by a
game-changing 60-70 percent while simultaneously reducing costs and the
risks associated with traditional software development processes. The
Platform allows those without extensive coding experience to create and
deploy cloud based enterprise business applications.
The launch follows the company's successful acquisition of Iceberg
technology and its Irish-based development team. Rebranded as KeyedIn
Flex Platform, it offers a highly dynamic web-based tool that
reduces application development time by around two-thirds of current
levels. The acquisitin is another key ingredient that will further
accelerate KeyedIn's growth, which has gone from startup to more than
28,000 users and 19 global offices in a little over a year.
Flex Platform enables the rapid development of web-based business
applications, such as: CRM, HR, Invoicing, Workflow, Online Forms, and
Portals. It offers a 'drag and drop' form designer and easy integration
to other popular business solutions, such as financials or CRM.
Karen Adame, Chief Product Officer at KeyedIn, says: "With the
acquisition of the Iceberg technology and development of KeyedIn Flex
Platform, KeyedIn Solutions has the platform to not only build new
applications, but also to extend existing applications and to provide
customers with the tools to modify applications to meet their specific
"KeyedIn customers will leverage the platform to personalize their
implementation of the company's latest products and partners will be
able to use the platform to build extensions to our portfolio of
The first of the KeyedIn Flex Platform developed applications is
KeyedIn™ Manufacturing, scheduled to launch at Houstex in February, a
100% Cloud-based manufacturing application designed specifically for the
small- to mid-sized manufacturing sector.
Both the KeyedIn Flex Platform and the resulting applications are
available anytime, anywhere and on any device.
The rapid growth of KeyedIn has been fuelled by its focus on SaaS
(Software as a Service) business solutions. These have gained rapid
acceptance across the business landscape as challenging economies have
discouraged companies from on-premise installations requiring high up
front capital expenditure.
