These Industries are Embracing No-Code Apps: Why You Should Too

 

Industries that have adopted no-code

Across a broad range of industries, more organizations are embracing no-code application development. They’re leveraging no-code tools to empower citizen developers, reduce the cost of digitizing workflows and forms, and quickly unleash new capabilities that accelerate operations and serve customers better.

In fact, Accenture calls the emergence of no-code and low-code a “revolution” that will drive an “explosion of user-generated innovation.” Innovative organizations are using no-code/low-code app builders to automate workflows (17%), create new applications (15%), speed up application development (15%), automate data collection and reporting (14%), and more, ZDNet reports.

Just where is no-code having the biggest impact? Organizations have achieved no-code success in these market segments:

Energy

The energy industry faces unprecedented change. But that disruption is a business opportunity for Trilliant, which provides leading-edge metering and communications systems for electric, natural gas and water utilities.

Trilliant used a no-code solution to automate business-critical web forms and web applications to support day-to-day operations. It also applied a no-code approach to create a process-mapping tool that allowed administrative teams to better understand and streamline workflows. As a result, the company optimized change management and accelerated customer-service response.

Healthcare

Healthcare providers are under pressure to improve processes to better serve patients. With multiple locations in northern Utah, Ogden Clinic needed a simple and cost-effective way to digitize workflow processes.

Ogden applied a no-code approach to optimize dozens of HR, clinical and laboratory processes, replacing manual, paper-based workflows while maintaining an audit trail to meet legal and regulatory requirements. The innovative healthcare provider saved costs, avoided administrative errors, and freed up time to focus on delivering care.

Insurance

For insurance companies, policy applications are business-critical. With licenses to operate in most U.S. states, Madison National Life Insurance needed to collect applicant data remotely in the field.

In the past, that workflow was hindered by paper forms and missing signatures. But using a no-code approach, Madison digitized the process and can capture the data it needs – wherever the customer happens to be. API connections and digitized routing automatically send the data to third-party systems.

Healthcare 

For today’s workforce management, temporary and gig employees are central to business success. All Medical Healthcare Staffing empowers healthcare companies with the recruiting – and associated reporting and compliance – they need.

All Medical took advantage of no-code tools to streamline employee on-boarding, handle compliance processes, and automate document collection for its HR department, employees and clients alike. The workflow process integrated smoothly with All Medical’s databases, making employee data easily accessible to authorized users. Support for digital signatures strengthened security and ensured a reliable audit trail. 

K-12 School Districts

K-12 school districts face a perennial need to minimize costs. That certainly was the case for Visalia Unified School District in California’s San Joaquin Valley. To support thousands of employees and tens of thousands of students across dozens of sites, the school district relied on more than 100 paper-based processes. Those manual workflows weren’t as efficient and cost-effective as they could be.

Visalia employed no-code tools to gradually automate administrative procedures. These processes included substitute-teacher requests, transportation requests, accident reports and more. The school system replaced dozens of manual forms with digitized data collection used by more than 2,400 educators and administrators. It reduced labor and printing costs, improved record-keeping and reporting, and achieved a positive return on investment (ROI) using no-code app solutions.

Higher Education

Like all institutions of higher education, the University of Tennessee at Martin (UTM) deals with many forms and administrative documents across their workflow processes. UTM leveraged a no-code app builder to automate a range of processes, beginning with managing the creation and distribution of student ID cards.

In the past, the university followed a manual process for ID card requests and photos that was cumbersome for both administrators and students. Now, an automated web form lets students upload a photo and request an ID online, avoiding long lines and reducing administrative demands.

The university then used another no-code web app to enable an enrollment wizard that facilitates registration, admissions, student vaccination forms and more – including electronic signatures. With no-code, UTM has replaced paper forms with digitized document management workflow processes.

No-code application development is powering use cases in other industry segments, as well, including financial services, engineering, retail and more. Innovative companies are finding new ways to apply no-code to accelerate processes, increase productivity, improve collaboration and optimize customer experiences. Your organization can, too.
