Why EdTech Companies Need a Low-Code CRM

E-Learning Platform

EdTech is a fierce battleground. You face pressure from all sides: marketing wants to lower customer costs, training needs to onboard staff quickly, and compliance demands loom large. Excel and Google Drive no longer cut it – you know you need a CRM.

But for a CTO, this is the decision that can shape your company’s future. Many EdTech leaders we work with start with a limited focus:

  • “I need a basic CRM now, and I’ll worry about the rest later.”
  • “Those fancy features are too expensive; I’ll get something to start with.”

This guide aims to make you reconsider that approach.

The CRM Features You Absolutely Need (and Why Basic Isn’t Enough)

We talked about the pressure cooker environment of EdTech. When you need technology that solves problems, and you need it now, you are tempted to ignore the fine print (and that’s a big mistake).

Any good CRM will provide the following capabilities:

  • Lead management: A central hub for all your potential customer interactions. 
  • Omnichannel communication: The ability to interact with leads and customers across different channels – email, phone, social media, live chat – all within the same platform. 
  • A great customer experience: A CRM helps personalize the student journey. Imagine remembering a lead’s previous conversation or interests. You can tailor your communication and offers. This makes them feel valued and more likely to convert.
  • Customer data management (360-degree view): The platform brings everything together – lead details, course preferences, and past interactions. This gives everyone in your team a complete picture of each student.
  • Lead-to-Deal Tracking: Trace the path a lead takes to becoming a paying student. 
  • Automation for Boosted Productivity: Free yourself from repetitive tasks. Automate emails, send follow-ups, or schedule reminders – all based on predefined rules. 

But here’s the catch: These features are just the table stakes. A basic CRM will tick these boxes, but is that enough?

Think about this. Today, your company has 20 employees. The CEO or CMO can train new hires personally. However, in six months, you plan to grow to 50 employees. In nine months, you’ll reach 100 employees and secure funding. At that point, an investor may demand 10x growth within a year. The CMO can no longer handle training alone, so you’ll need to hire dedicated trainers. Then you realize: it’s not the same without you unless you have the CRM that can do the heavy lifting, and leave the employees to connect the dots. If you don’t have the right CRM, processes will break down, and your progress will wither away.

So, it’s clear: the digital solution you need today has to support the organization you aim to become in 12 months (or even 5 years). Beyond the core CRM features, you’ll require:

  1. Highly-assisted process management: Technology should guide who does what and when, and reduce reliance on manual management.
  2. Seamless onboarding: New hires should find the platform easy and exciting to use. That’s how you drive rapid productivity gains and high performance.
  3. No more information silos: Data should flow seamlessly across departments and functions.
  4. Gamified sales engagements: Integrate gamification elements within the same platform to motivate and engage your sales team.
  5. Learning and growth: Align employee efforts with organizational goals and support continuous learning and development.
  6. Top-down planning and execution: Facilitate target setting, performance reviews, and progress tracking against objectives.
  7. Single Sign-On (SSO): Enable secure and convenient access to multiple applications with a single set of credentials.

While these advanced features may seem like “nice-to-haves” today, they will become essential for survival and growth in the near future. The difference lies in adopting a marathon mindset instead of a 100-meter sprint mentality. And for those EdTech companies aiming for the podium in the marathon, today is the best time to get a CRM that can do even more.

They should demand an even more advanced CRM solution that:

  • Ignites the developer mindset in every employee, not just the tech team. 
  • Allows you to think and execute digitally, without constraints of time or cost.
  • Enables hyper-automation and hyper-agility, which means you should be able to use emerging technologies like generative AI without breaking the bank. 
  • Enables you to fail fast, iterate rapidly, and achieve success through continuous improvement.

The bottom line is that the CRM you choose today should not only meet your current needs but also position your EdTech company for sustained growth and future readiness. Can you have it easily, without spending a fortune?

Low-Code: The Power Behind Game-changing CRMs for EdTech

You might have concerns about the speed, cost, and technical expertise needed to implement a truly powerful, scalable CRM. That’s where Low-Code technology comes in.

What is Low-Code?

It means building software using visual interfaces and drag-and-drop elements, instead of writing complex lines of traditional code. Think of it like building with LEGO blocks instead of handcrafting every brick.

Why is Low-Code ideal for EdTech?

  • Speed: Low-code development can be up to 10x faster than traditional coding, letting you get your CRM up and running sooner.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Reduce reliance on expensive developers, lowering costs.
  • Agility: Easily modify workflows and features as your EdTech business evolves.

Important Note: Not all Low-Code platforms are the same. You need a true Low-Code solution that simplifies rather than complicates. This means avoiding platforms that are merely customizable high-code systems under a Low-Code guise, which often come with a steep learning curve and high management overhead.

Ask your vendor these key questions:

  1. Does your Low-Code platform have the depth to handle my complex enterprise?
  2. Will your platform create skill roadblocks or enable citizen developers?
  3. Can your platform strike the balance between speed and customization?

5 ways Low-Code can benefit your business

“A business’s true assets walk out the door every evening.” This smart and succinct quote captures a timeless truth of management – “people are the heart and soul of a business”.

Yet, people feel stifled at work, and IT systems fail to let them work at their best. Why? Traditional IT systems create a frustrating bottleneck because they’re expensive and rigid. 

Low-Code platforms change this. Low-Code technology is a revolution that finally puts the power of digital transformation in the hands of the people who run the day-to-day operations. This is why it’s said that Low-Code is the marriage of democracy and digital. Let’s understand how a Low-Code platform works. But first, the basics.

What are Low-Code platforms?

Low-code tools are software development platforms that use visual interfaces instead of complex coding languages. Think of them like building with digital Lego blocks. You drag and drop pre-built components, connect them to create workflows, and add simple logic – all without needing years of programming experience. This is fundamentally different from how traditional IT develops applications – by writing line after line of code. But with Low-Code, a user has to focus on the application’s logical flow and functionality, not writing code. In fact, instead of coding, you’d use drag-and-drop components, configure settings, and define rules and workflows visually.

Anyone with almost no knowledge of coding can now develop applications themselves, using low-code platforms. Let’s consider this example. 

Let’s say you need a shared workspace for your team to collaborate on projects. Traditionally, IT would need to build a custom application, which can be expensive and time-consuming. But with a low-code platform like Amoga, you can drag and drop pre-built components to create your own digital workplace. Imagine a central hub with tasks, calendars, document sharing, and real-time chat – all accessible from anywhere. Amoga empowers teams to skip the wait for IT and build the tools they need to work together effectively.

With Amoga, you’ll find such common use cases already done and you just need to customise them for your team. But that’s not all.

We have many other ready-to-use recipes that can make your organization digitally powerful like the best companies in your industry, but at a fraction of the cost. And there’s no limit to what you can develop – simply train your existing IT and entry-level developers in a month or hire Low-Code developers on-demand from Amoga, potentially at a cheaper price than your in-house resources. You don’t need to find experienced developers who are in short supply, as Low-Code development takes much less skill and time. The focus is on business logic instead of line-by-line coding.

This is the answer to the decades-old demand-supply gap in organisational IT. 

How does Low-Code bridge the IT demand-supply gap?

Let’s understand this demand-supply gap – something that traditional high code methods are to blame for. 

  • On the demand side are people close to the work who know exactly what they need and why their productivity is stuck. 
  • On the supply side is IT, groaning under technical debt, constantly firefighting, and understaffed and underfunded. 

This gap causes frustration, chaos, value leakage, and accumulating technical debt.

You see, the ones who know what solutions are needed can’t build them due to a lack of technical skills. And the IT team, though skilled, is overburdened and disconnected from evolving business needs. This creates a bottleneck. The consequences are grave: users are left waiting for critical solutions and waste effort on tasks that could be easily automated.  Productivity suffers. Low-Code bridges this gap.

It does this in two ways:

  • First, your non-tech employees can build applications for themselves and their teams by using Low-Code tools to build simple apps.
  • Second, your IT team can develop complex solutions much faster using Low-Code, at 10x speed and 1/4th cost compared to traditional methods.

Technically, Low-Code abstracts away complexities and offers reusable building blocks. This allows even small IT teams to assemble robust applications rapidly by configuring, not coding from scratch. The result? You do more with less, work gets done faster, and solutions align tightly with evolving business needs.

But there’s more that explains why Deloitte estimates that by 2025, 75% of enterprise applications will be Low-Code. Let’s unpack these benefits that you can enjoy with a Low-Code platform like Amoga. 

The benefits of Low-Code tools

1. 10X the speed of development

With Amoga’s Low-Code platform, you get the best of both worlds – simplicity and customizability. While it abstracts away coding complexities, you still have the flexibility to tailor solutions precisely to your needs. 

For instance, imagine you want to automate your sales process with a custom workflow. Amoga provides ready-made templates to get you started quickly. But let’s say the default options don’t quite fit your specific requirements. No problem – you can simply modify the workflow rules, forms, and actions using Amoga’s intuitive visual builders.

The work that took a 10-member project team a month to do, can now be done by a 3-member team in a week. That’s 10x speed for your IT.


2. 1/4th the cost 

Coding custom software is expensive due to high developer costs. Amoga flips this upside down. Your existing staff can build the solutions themselves with minimal training using visual tools. No more months of high consulting fees. You create what you need in-house rapidly and cost-effectively. 

Let’s say you need a custom CRM tailored to your sales process. Having your own sales staff build it on Amoga could cost 75% less than outsourcing to developers. The cost-savings are so massive that no development request will die out because of lack of budget. With 1/4th the cost of automation, team leaders are compelled to think in a ‘digital first’ manner. 

3. Reduced Shadow IT

Shadow IT is the use of unauthorised apps and services by employees. For decades, shadow IT has been a hard reality to grapple with for enterprises. Amoga’s Low-Code platform solves this problem. 

Instead of sourcing unapproved cloud apps that IT has no visibility into, teams can use Amoga to rapidly build secure and compliant solutions they need. Solutions are developed on Amoga’s governed platform following centralised IT policies and standards.

For example, if the sales team needs a custom app to manage their pipeline, they can quickly build it on Amoga. The pipeline can have authorised access to CRM data, rather than using an insecure third-party app. This democratises app delivery while giving IT full control and oversight to mitigate shadow IT risks.

4. Simplified integration

In the past, integrating data and processes across different enterprise systems was a nightmare of complex APIs and coding logic. Amoga’s Low-Code platform makes it simple with visual integration builders.

For example, let’s say you want to connect your ERP system to a custom sales analytics app, while also pulling in marketing data from your CRM. With Amoga’s drag-and-drop integration designer, you can map data flows across all these systems visually, without wrestling with code. Simply configure pre-built connectors for each system, visually define the integration rules, and integrate rich functionality into your app with just a few clicks.

5. Enhanced security and governance

Data security, user access controls, and governance are top concerns for any enterprise application. With Amoga’s Low-Code platform, these are baked into the core architecture from the ground up.

At the platform level, capabilities like granular role-based access controls, data encryption, audit trails, version control, and policy enforcement are prebuilt. So when you develop an app on Amoga, these security and governance features are automatically inherited without extra coding effort. Your apps stay compliant and secure by design.

Imagine needing a client portal with sensitive data access. Amoga lets you control exactly who sees what. It also makes compliance easier with features like audit trails and version history, vital if you work in a regulated industry. Whether you’re an SMB or an enterprise, Low-Code is the bridge between the promise of digital and the reality of being digital. 

Adopt Low-Code/No-Code in your work with Amoga

Low-Code is a mindset shift, and Amoga is the platform that delivers this shift to every member of your team. Low-Code works because it empowers your people to solve their own problems, frees IT to focus on innovation, and lets leaders build a company that can adapt as quickly as the world around it.

With Amoga you get:

  • A blend of Low-Code and No-Code: Get the ease of use and speed of no-code, with the flexibility and customization of Low-Code when you need it.
  • Security and reliability from day one: Amoga’s architecture prioritises data protection and stability.
  • Productivity-focused features: Built-in analytics, task management, and collaboration tools help you achieve real results, not just build apps.

Modernize Inventory Management: How Low-Code inventory management is a game changer

The joke goes around among supply chain managers: finding the right inventory management software can be as tricky as finding true love. Why is it so hard (to find the right inventory management solution, we mean)? Let’s look into this issue more deeply.

Many businesses rely heavily on their inventory. Despite this, they often need help with their inventory management software. Some issues include:

  • Not being able to set up the software to check data in a way that suits the business.
  • The software doesn’t help figure out the best amount of stock to keep or automatically order more when needed.
  • It’s hard to get useful reports or spot trends without having to work on the data by hand.

What’s the problem with traditional inventory management software?

The main issue is that traditional software isn’t flexible enough to meet the unique needs of different companies. This makes managing inventory harder than it needs to be. That’s why we created this guide. In this guide, we’re going to cover:

  • Why traditional inventory management software often disappoints
  • How low-code/no-code platforms address these shortcomings
  • The foundation of a powerful low-code inventory management software system
  • How Amoga’s solution can revolutionise inventory management 

Let’s go.



Why old-school software struggles with inventory management

Old-school inventory management software often falls short, and here’s why. 

First, inventory management is complex and demands precision. Every company has its own unique way of managing inventory, making a one-size-fits-all solution ineffective. Second, traditional software is usually built with complex coding and based on average industry practices, making customization difficult.

The gap in capability with traditional software comes from its design. It’s not built for quick, easy adjustments by the people who actually manage the inventory. Instead, it relies heavily on IT professionals for development, which can be slow and inflexible. The solution: low-code/no-code inventory management.

Low-code and no-code platforms offer a powerful alternative. They put customization and speed into the hands of those who understand inventory best.


How low-code/no-code inventory management software addresses the shortcomings of traditional software

To truly work, inventory management software needs to do four things:

  1. It should empower those closest to inventory management to quickly develop solutions.
  2. It should speed up development to discourage reliance on inefficient workarounds.
  3. It should allow supply chain managers to approve costs confidently, knowing that developing custom applications for different departments is cost-effective.
  4. And it should manage data so well that anyone in the supply chain can make decisions with complete trust in the accuracy of the information.

Can traditional software meet these needs? In theory, yes, but in practice, it’s often too expensive, too complex, and too slow, requiring specific skills and extensive IT support. But low-code inventory management software is designed from the ground up, keeping these requirements in mind. 

We can confidently claim this for Amoga’s low-code inventory management software, and that’s why it’s proven to be a game-changer. We’ll explore exactly why in the next section.

How Amoga makes inventory management better, fast, smart, and inexpensive

Amoga’s approach introduces four major advantages to make inventory management software truly work for your company:

  1. More Power for Citizen Developers: Those closest to inventory operations can build their own solutions, reducing reliance on overburdened IT teams.
  2. 10x Speed for IT: Tasks that used to wait on IT’s schedule can now happen 10x faster, breaking through previous delays caused by IT constraints.
  3. 1/4th the Cost: What was once too expensive becomes much more affordable, costing only a quarter of traditional development prices.
  4. Productivity Transformation: Amoga’s platform transforms how work gets done. This isn’t incremental; this is transformative, leading to significant improvements in productivity across the board.

Let’s understand each of these in detail. 

  1. More Power for Citizen Developers

Imagine these scenarios:

  • Reorder point woes: A warehouse manager needs to constantly adjust reorder points for seasonal items, but IT is swamped.
  • Data visibility gaps: The sales team wants real-time stock visibility for specific product lines, but the current system can’t provide it.
  • Manual reporting overload: A supply chain analyst spends hours each week compiling reports in spreadsheets instead of finding cost-saving opportunities.

With Amoga’s low-code inventory management software, these challenges become opportunities for those closest to the process.  Amoga’s visual, drag-and-drop interface puts the power of customization into their hands.  Here’s how it works:

  • Templates and Connectors: Get a headstart with pre-built components tailored to inventory management.
  • Workflow Automation: Streamline processes, approvals, and notifications without writing code.
  • Powerful Features for Inventory Teams:
    • Customization: Refine forms and data views to match your exact workflow.
    • User Interface Design: Create easy-to-use dashboards for your team.
    • Data Import/Export Capability: Move data in and out using tools everyone already understands.

With Amoga, inventory teams take control, IT gets breathing room, and the entire business benefits from tailored solutions. Some of the use cases we’ve helped citizen developers at our client companies:

  • Ensure accurate inventory counts with a mobile app with a barcode scanner, such that it eliminates manual data entry mistakes.
  • Easily manage inventory across multiple warehouses, stores, or even specific shelves and racks.
  • Track product quality issues, returns, and scrap for better inventory control and insights.
  • Streamline the procurement process with vendor communication features and performance tracking.
  • Monitor inventory costs and identify areas for savings through improved data visibility.

Of course, not all requirements are within the realm of citizen development. Sometimes, IT has to step in. But Amoga’s low-code inventory management platform means that even when a requirement is complex, IT can still deliver at 10X speed. Here’s how 

  2. 10x speed and 1/4th cost of development

Let’s consider a common request: connecting the inventory system to tools like email or chat for real-time updates on stock levels, critical orders, or delayed shipments. Traditionally, this is a complex project. Here’s why:

  • Data Integration: Making different systems “talk” involves understanding APIs, secure communication protocols, and data mapping.
  • Workflow Logic: Notifications need the right triggers, correct data, and go to the right people – otherwise, they’re just noise.
  • Reliability and Scaling: The solution must work flawlessly under peak load and adapt as the business grows.

Amoga’s low-code approach changes this equation. IT teams can:

  • Visually Build Integrations: Use pre-built connectors and intuitive tools to link systems in a fraction of the time.
  • Design Workflows with Ease: Define complex logic without writing code, ensuring the right people are informed at the right moment.
  • Focus on the Big Picture: Leverage Amoga’s robust foundation for security and scalability, freeing up time for strategic initiatives.

The Result: Complex inventory management requests that once took months can now be delivered in days or weeks. This is a win for IT and a major productivity boost for the business. Not only is new application development fast, but much more affordable too. Here’s how:


  • Effortless Data Entry: “Image Recognition” automatically pulls product details from photos, eliminating tedious manual work.
  • Smarter Inventory Management: “Inventory Forecasting” uses AI to predict demand and optimise stock levels, saving money on storage and preventing lost sales.

With Amoga’s low-code inventory management software, these aren’t just pipe dreams. What if you knew these cutting-edge features could be yours for just 25% of what you expected to pay? That’s the reality with Amoga. This platform makes it possible to request and implement features that were previously out of reach due to budget constraints.

Not only that, Amoga’s low-code inventory management platform is built for advanced reporting.  Generate insightful reports for data-driven decision-making, including sales trends, inventory turnover, and more. This empowers you to optimise every aspect of your inventory operations.

The result?  A significant boost to your bottom line and a powerful tool for transforming productivity.  

Of course, productivity isn’t what you get with such advanced features, it has to be a core attribute of the inventory management software design. That’s exactly how we do it at Amoga. 

  3. Transform every aspect of work in inventory management

Imagine a manufacturing plant with an immediate need for the following digital solutions:

  • Location-wise reporting, to understand where materials are at any given time and identify bottlenecks.
  • Vendor performance tracking, to analyse on-time delivery rates and quality metrics to improve supplier relationships.
  • Item-wise performance and momentum, to track sales trends and stock levels to optimize inventory and prevent shortages.
  • Cost analytics, to analyse inventory-related costs and identify areas for savings.
  • Forecasting, to predict future demand to optimize production and inventory levels.

Traditionally, this would involve a lengthy and expensive project to integrate various data sources and build custom analytics. With Amoga, insights are at your fingertips. Our low-code platform lets you quickly visualize data and track the metrics that matter most to streamline operations and reduce lead times.

Amoga’s inventory management solution lets you:

  • Build custom scorecards that show every employee and manager exactly how their daily tasks contribute to the overall objective of faster lead times
  • Set alerts and notifications so everyone stays informed about critical events like low stock levels or potential delays.
  • Share insights across teams so they can collaborate effectively and drive data-driven decision-making.

This is a significant transformation.  

Executives have a clear line of sight to the work that truly matters (improving lead measures), and managers can track progress in real time, fostering accountability across the team. Amoga’s flexibility allows you to adapt and adjust as needed, ensuring everyone is aligned and focused on achieving the common goal.

Move from chaos to clarity with low-code

Traditional inventory management software often feels limiting. Complex customizations are slow and expensive, and reporting leaves much to be desired. The result is frustrated teams, missed opportunities, and an unseen drain on the bottom line.

Amoga’s low-code approach shifts this paradigm. It empowers teams, reduces IT bottlenecks, unlocks previously unattainable features at a fraction of the cost, and transforms every aspect of inventory operations. It’s about more than just software – it’s about enabling your business to thrive in a competitive landscape. See the Difference: Book a Demo

Transforming Enterprise Application Development: The Low-Code/No-Code Advantage

In his book ‘Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture’, British software developer Martin Fowler defined enterprise apps rather succinctly.

“Enterprise applications are about the display, manipulation, and storage of large amounts of often complex data and the support or automation of business processes with that data.”

An enterprise might have thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of employees. Millions of customers could be interacting with their applications on a regular basis. Just think of a giant retailer handling 100,000 orders daily, each order potentially interacting with a list of millions of products. This massive scale puts unique demands on enterprise software:

  • Comprehensiveness: Enterprise solutions must handle intricate and granular requirements of the business process, and navigate a huge range of tasks and processes, often spanning multiple departments or business units.
  • Robustness: These systems must work reliably under heavy use. Downtime can lead to significant losses in revenue or productivity.
  • Scalability: The software needs to grow seamlessly with the enterprise. Adding new users, data, or features shouldn’t create bottlenecks.
  • Security: Protecting sensitive company and customer data is absolutely critical for any large-scale enterprise application.

The Complexity of Enterprise Applications 

Let’s understand each of these unique aspects of enterprise development in detail. 


Think of a small business app for a specific task (like point-of-sale or customer relationship management). In an SMB, everyone wears multiple hats and can easily communicate needs. 

Now picture an enterprise. For the same application, there will be stakeholders from dedicated departments (sales, marketing, product, etc.)  Each department has its own workflows, processes, and data needs. Each stakeholder has their motivations and priorities, and they’ll insist on getting the features they want. Enterprise applications have to accommodate every process. It has to integrate into existing workflows and support the way each team operates.

In the same way, a small business application may be able to overlook occasional exceptions. Enterprise applications have to account for even seemingly rare scenarios. Imagine a 2% edge case that, in an enterprise context, could impact hundreds of transactions or customers. This attention to detail, granularity, and inclusivity is what makes an enterprise application different from an SMB application.


Imagine the difference between a local coffee shop and an international airport. Applications for both need to be robust. But the implication of 0.1% downtime is massive for an enterprise.

An enterprise app needs to be available 24/7, with minimal downtime. Downtime can lead to lost productivity, revenue, or even reputational damage. An enterprise app is built with care for peak usage. Think of a retail app during the holiday season or a travel booking platform during school holidays. Such applications have to anticipate and overcome potential problems. This means having built-in redundancy and failover mechanisms. Even if one component experiences an issue, the entire system shouldn’t collapse.


Enterprise applications are built to adapt to multiple dimensions of growth. For starters, enterprise applications amass vast amounts of data – customer records, transactions, and analytics.  The app’s architecture has to support efficient storage and retrieval of this data, even as it exponentially grows.  

As businesses expand, processes and workflows become increasingly complex.  A scalable enterprise app has to handle new approval chains and integrations. It has to do so without compromising speed or efficiency. Many enterprises operate globally.  Scalability means supporting users in different time zones, complying with regional regulations (like data privacy laws), and offering the app in multiple languages. This requires careful consideration of infrastructure, localization, and compliance.


Enterprise security is a challenge

Zero Trust Architecture: The traditional idea of a secure perimeter is no longer sufficient. Enterprise apps are built based on a zero-trust approach which assumes no user or device is inherently trusted. Such apps have to support continuous authentication and authorization at every level of access.

Enterprises often need to adhere to strict industry regulations like PCI-DSS (payment cards), HIPAA (healthcare), or GDPR (data privacy). These frameworks dictate how data is collected, stored, processed, and shared. Also, enterprise apps have to support auditing, access controls, and reporting capabilities to meet these standards.

The unmet challenges of enterprise app development

Every enterprise wants a technology platform that’s faster, better, and more affordable. However, many traditional solutions struggle to pass the four-stage filter we’ve discussed: comprehensiveness, scalability, robustness, and security. For most of the past 25 years, this has been the reality.

That is, until the rise of low-code/no-code development in the early 2020s. Today, true low-code/no-code platforms are becoming the go-to choice for many Fortune 500 companies. Why? Because they’re finally a technology solution that caters to the specific needs of enterprises. They tick all four essential boxes while also delivering the benefits of speed, agility, and lower development costs. Let’s break down how low-code/no-code works.

What is Low-code/No-code Development?

Low-code platforms provide a visual development environment where applications can be built by dragging and dropping pre-built components, rather than writing extensive code from scratch. This accelerates development and allows for rapid iteration and deployment.

No-code platforms take low-code one step further by enabling even non-technical users to build applications through intuitive interfaces and configuration, without any coding required. While no-code platforms are suitable for simpler applications, more complex enterprise requirements often necessitate the use of low-code platforms. These allow developers to extend and customize applications using code when needed, while still leveraging the visual development environment for faster delivery.

Why Low-Code/No-Code Is the Game-Changer for Enterprise App Development?

Let’s be frank: traditional application development is a major bottleneck for most enterprises. The backlog is overflowing, IT is stretched thin, and finding highly skilled niche developers is time-consuming and costly. Low-code/no-code fundamentally shifts this dynamic. Here’s how.

  • Democratizing Development: By unlocking the app-building potential of citizen developers – employees who understand the business – enterprises can rapidly address niche needs. This frees IT professionals to focus on strategic projects and complex integrations.
  • Agility at Scale: Pre-built components and visual development tools dramatically accelerate development cycles. As Gartner notes, low-code/no-code platforms replace traditional development methods for many business applications and offer a quicker, cost-effective alternative to commercial software.
  • Productivity Gains for Developers and the Business: Studies indicate low-code/no-code can make developers up to 90% more efficient, and as Forrester notes, achieve a 10x speed increase compared to traditional coding. This translates into tangible business value – faster solutions, higher responsiveness, and greater overall agility.

But just any low-code/no-code platform doesn’t cut it. That’s why — Amoga.

Amoga – One-stop Low-code/No-code Platform For Enterprises

We all know that the devil’s in the details when it comes to enterprise software. True, your employees use numerous niche apps, each carrying a subscription cost and a security risk. But you can’t replace all those with a generic app builder. You need a solution built for the realities of your business.

This is where Amoga stands out.

Amoga allows employees to build custom applications for their specific needs. Think of a sales app built by the sales team, not just for the sales team.

Business Process Reengineering with Low-Code

Imagine if your business could change as quickly as the world around it. What if you could cut costs, delight customers, and outpace the competition – all without sacrificing stability?

It’s ironic that one of the most potent management frameworks that address these challenges first came to print in the 1990s before it was more formally known as the idea of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) by the mid-1990s. 

A Brief History of BPR

  • BPR emerged in the 1990s as a strategy for companies to improve cost, quality, service, and speed. 
  • Unlike Total Quality Management (TQM), which emphasises gradual improvement, BPR advocates for deep and fundamental changes. 
  • This approach was highlighted in influential articles by Thomas Davenport and Michael Hammer, although the term BPR itself was coined later. 
  • Hammer’s view was chiefly of ‘swiftly implementing radical changes’.
  • Davenport’s view was chiefly of ‘continually re-engineering business processes’.

What we know as BPR today, is how Thomas Davenport explained it in his book ‘Process Innovation’ in 1993. 


The power of BPR is most evident in companies with long, established histories. Consider the massive shifts experienced by companies like Netflix in recent years.  


Netflix didn’t get here by tweaking old systems; they reimagined how things could work. That’s the scale of change BPR can facilitate. It’s no different with the seismic shifts experienced by companies like Amazon or Tesla. Of course, most businesses don’t enjoy the luxury of being a Fortune 500 brand with enough appetite for adventures. 

Most enterprises and SMBs operate with limitations — rightfully so. Questions arise: 

  • Will BPR be too disruptive? 
  • How much will it cost? 
  • When will we see a return on investment?  

These concerns are valid and often prevent countless companies from experiencing the benefits of BPR. But what if there were a way to level the playing field? 

Low-code technology shatters the barriers that once separated the biggest enterprises from everyone else. With Low-Code, the complex becomes simple, the unaffordable becomes inexpensive, and the sluggish becomes fast. Let’s understand how. 

Why BPR and Low-Code are the Perfect Match

Management and technology often clash. When targets go unmet, one blames the other. However, the combination of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and low-code platforms offers a rare and powerful solution. It’s fascinating to see how a management philosophy from the 1990s has found its ideal tech partner over 25 years later. So, why is ‘BPR and low-code’ a match made in business heaven? Let’s break it down. BPR, at its core, asks those in power to come together and answer five critical questions:

1. Who are our customers, and what values are we offering them?

For a direct-to-consumer (D2C) e-commerce company selling speciality consumer audio equipment, the answer might be: “Our customers are audiophiles seeking exceptional sound quality and immersive listening experiences. We offer high-fidelity audio products that deliver unparalleled sound reproduction and luxury design.”

2. Are our current processes delivering the expected values? 

The answer is often a resounding “NO.” For example, if the customer value proposition is exceptional sound quality, the company’s strong suit should be processes focused on product design, audio engineering, and quality control. However, the reality might be different, highlighting a misalignment between processes and customer values.

3. Do our processes align with our long-term vision?

Again, the answer tends to be “no.” Market shifts and long-term goals are constantly in flux.

4. Do we need to fundamentally redefine or redesign our processes?

Almost always, “yes.” BPR isn’t about one-time fixes; it’s a mindset of continuous evolution in how work gets done. This highlights why the technology supporting your business must be equally adaptable.

5. If we were starting fresh, how would we build our processes?

This is where the need for agility becomes clear. Businesses need collaborative, flexible systems that match their dynamic outlook. Low-code platforms fit this perfectly, while traditional technology often creates bottlenecks.

Can you see why BPR and low-code are the perfect fit? 

  • BPR tells you to keep thinking about how work changes, what’s important to measure, and what processes need to evolve. 
  • Low-Code, in turn, enables you to continuously sculpt your technology to match your changing work definitions, key performance indicators, workflows, and accountability matrices.

How Low-code Supports BPR

Low-code platforms change the game when it comes to BPR. On top of it, Amoga’s low-code platform is built on the same philosophy that forms the pillars of BPR. In Amoga, you get a one-stop low-code platform with every tool you need to make BPR a way of life at your business. Let’s break down the key advantages:

  • Visual Development of Apps

Few can code; everyone can draw. Now imagine being able to build complex applications without writing extensive code. Amoga’s low-code platforms offer a visual, drag-and-drop interface that allows developers and non-developers alike to create software solutions quickly. 

How does Amoga bring app development from the realm of code-by-hand to build it visually? The pillars of Amoga’s low-code platform are:

  • Visual, drag-and-drop interface for building applications
  • Pre-built components, templates, and modules
  • Visual data modeling and integration tools

The result is obvious — you can build and deliver applications in a fraction of the time required by traditional coding methods. But it’s not just about speed; Low-Code also simplifies data integration. Visual data modelling tools make it easy to connect applications with various data sources, APIs, and external systems, ensuring a seamless flow of information across your processes.

So, two exceptional outcomes are evident:

  1. Low code makes people think along the lines of ‘how to digitize this process and eliminate all the manual work’ rather than ‘it’s quicker to do this manually than request a development from IT’.
  2. Low code makes it so easy to interconnect all your existing databases that all your low-code apps will be your most reliable source of truth.

But that’s not all. Low-Code becomes the biggest enabler of BPR by placing power in the hands that are closest to real work. Let’s see how.

  • Citizen developers

One of the most significant drains on productivity occurs when someone needs a digital tool for their work process, but IT is either too swamped to help or ends up delivering something that barely meets the original vision. The essence of what was needed gets lost in translation, resulting in tools that don’t quite hit the mark. Enter low-code platforms, which bring an end to this cycle of frustration.

Low-code platforms empower what we call citizen developers. These are employees who, while not professionally trained in coding, have a deep understanding of their needs. They can now take the wheel, thanks to user-friendly interfaces and intuitive tools, to quickly develop applications that truly serve their purpose. 

Note: There’s no need to worry about chaos or rogue apps; built-in governance and oversight ensure everything aligns with organizational standards. This shift not only speeds up innovation but also democratizes the creation of digital tools, ensuring they’re just right.

  • 10X Faster and 1/4th the Cost

For years, the problem has been the same: IT departments are drowning in requests, leaving only the most urgent problems to get solved. Over time, teams get used to finding workarounds instead of using technology to its full potential.  Low-code platforms, like Amoga, have the power to change that.

How does it work? When software developers can focus on design and testing, rather than the nitty-gritty coding of every single feature, things move fast. Reusable components and visual development can lead to solutions being built ten times faster. This isn’t just a claim – it’s reality and has been proven repeatedly, from creating simple dashboards to integrating complex features like QR code scanners for field sales.

It’s no wonder Gartner predicts that by 2027, 75% of enterprise applications will be built on low-code platforms. But it’s not just about speed. Over time, as organizations build up a library of reusable parts, the cost of creating new solutions plummets. Organizations can cut development costs to a quarter of what they would spend on traditional coding.

This fundamentally changes how businesses think. Managers start seeing what’s possible with automation. Analysts dream of dashboards updating themselves. CEOs focus on optimizing workflows to be faster, better, and cheaper. A pro-tech mindset takes over, and that’s where the true magic of low-code lies. The one core tenet of BRP — continual evaluation and engineering — becomes realizable because technology can now support the goal with speed and cost-effectiveness.

  • Secure

In a stable system, speed doesn’t come at the cost of security. Security is non-negotiable. Low-code platforms understand this. Features like role-based access (who can see and do what), data encryption, and compliance with major security standards are often baked right in. IT teams get centralized control to make sure everything stays safe and sound. Automated testing processes help catch potential security holes before those apps go live.

Imagine a healthcare organization undergoing a digital transformation to streamline patient data management. To do this on a Low-Code platform, everyone needs to have the confidence that the system is compliant with industry standards like GDPR and HIPAA. With low-code’s robust security features, they can confidently develop and deploy applications.

Ready for BPR + Low-code?

BPR isn’t an incremental improvement. We’re not talking about small wins here. Imagine your D2C e-commerce brand, focused on consumer audio, revamping operations so completely that you become an industry leader for the next half-century. That’s the potential of true BPR.

Today’s Fortune 500 companies didn’t reach the top by accident. They understand the power of agility and continuous process reengineering. While they might be giants, they have the speed and flexibility to adapt quickly. The ability to re-engineer processes gives them the agility of a startup with the strength of a century-old company.

Low-code makes this practical. We’d love to show how so many enterprises and SMBs are enjoying the liberation that only a true low-code platform can bring about. Let’s chat.
