Are you looking for a way to create custom business applications without any prior coding experience or IT knowledge? Zoho Creator is the perfect solution for you. This cloud-based software allows you to create custom apps in days instead of weeks, with its drag-and-drop interface. With Zoho Creator, you can collect data, automate business processes or workflows, analyse the data in reports and collaborate with your app users. At its core, a Zoho Creator application consists of Forms and Reports.
Forms are used to collect user information and store it in the database, while Reports are used to view, filter and search the information collected through Forms. Additionally, Zoho Creator has a range of features that make it easier to use, such as validating email-ids, supporting video, audio, geocoded address and more. Zoho Creator also has a dedicated portal for customers to log in and access their data. It is a low-code, all-in-one application development software that is designed to help businesses digitise their operations without the hassle of traditional development.
It also allows external applications to access your data. Mobile applications allow users to access all Creator applications, including personal, workspace and shared applications. Page Creator allows the formation of interactive dashboards as well as web pages to collect data from various sources with a drag-and-drop interface. Zoho Creator also has a unified database for its custom applications; therefore, all applications created in that tool share the same database.
The Zoho teams realised that approvals and notifications are the most used workflows in the business process. To make this easier for users, Zoho Creator has low-code capabilities that allow you to create workflows visually. It is a very powerful product but because it is a proprietary, closed source solution, you are somewhat at Zoho's mercy for answers to your programming questions. Applications built in Zoho Creator are built to auto-scale back-end infrastructure seamlessly as business demand grows.
