Frequently asked questions

Understanding what low-code can do for your business

What is low-code?
Low-code is an approach to development that requires minimal custom coding. It uses a modular framework and pre-built components to create applications, rather than writing code from scratch.
What is the difference between low-code and no-code?
The main difference is the level of human intervention. Low-code allows developers to add custom code and modify built-in code, while no-code relies solely on pre-built configurations without the ability to add custom code.
What can you build with low-code?
Low-code platforms can be used to build a wide variety of web and mobile applications, from simple tools to sophisticated enterprise apps. With Slingr, you can also build on-premises deployments that run on your business’ machines.
What are the benefits of low-code?
Key benefits include faster development, lower costs, easier long-term support, and a robust integration ecosystem that makes it easy to work with 3rd party tools.
What industries can benefit from low-code?
Low-code has context agnostic and can be utilized across a variety of industries, but many of our clients are in manufacturing, healthcare, and laboratory sciences.
Can low-code replace software developers?
No, low-code won't make developers obsolete. It allows developers to focus on more complex tasks by eliminating routine work. In many cases, managing the software architecture and testing edge case utility requires a professional engineer, even for a low-code platform like Slingr.
Is low-code HIPAA compliant?

Can low-code integrate with existing systems and APIs?
Yes, Slingr has a robust set of integration tools to work with API-enabled 3rd party tools and software.
How can I know if low-code is right for my business?
Low-code is context agnostic, but some businesses may not benefit from using low-code. Low-code may not be ideal for businesses that need close control over their cloud provider, low-level code, or other infrastructural details that are typically handled by the low-code vendor. The majority of businesses do not need such a deep level of control.
Is low-code expensive?
No, low-code is typically more cost effective than custom coding.
