5 Low-Code Tools That Can Supercharge Your Productivity

Did you know that 42% of developers’ time is spent on maintaining legacy code? And that this amounts to about $300 billion annually? 

Now, combine this with the increasing expectation for companies to develop and release apps faster and with fewer resources. You’d agree that boosting productivity is the sine qua non to staying competitive in any market. 

This is where low-code app development comes in. If companies can double down on this to deliver software development in more productive ways with better results, there’s a large amount of time and money to be saved. 

On that note, we’ve compiled this list of powerful low-code tools you can integrate into your workflow to supercharge your productivity. 

Visual LANSA

The LANSA low-code development platform accelerates application development by eliminating the need to master the multiple technical skills normally required to produce software applications. With LANSA, only a single skill needs to be mastered to build applications across all different mobile devices, browsers, servers, and cloud platforms.

Here are more ways this tool can help you boost productivity:

  • Visual LANSA contains a full-stack language, WYSIWYG designer, and one-click deployment for all form factors to accelerate your app development process.
  • Visual LANSA’s application framework, which includes live prototyping, prebuilt navigation, auto-generated search filters and detail panels, user-access security, and a lot more, allows you to generate consistent, high-quality enterprise applications with minimal coding.
  • This tool allows you to integrate your existing data and assets with everything directly, whether the objects are in the cloud, on-premises, or on a local device, server, or workstation. 


The next tool on our list is Portalize, a fully functional, fully customizable portal framework loaded with the most essential portal features right out of the box. With this tool, your developers can focus on creating solutions rather than spending time developing complex features needed in today’s application portals.

That said, here are ways Portalize can increase your productivity:

  • With Portalize, your developers can now focus on solving problems and creating solutions instead of spending time developing a portal.
  • Portalize is designed for fast navigation between pages, resulting in an amazing user experience. By utilizing the latest web technologies available to Visual LANSA, along with optimized use of portal modules, users won’t have to wait for pages to load or actions to complete.
  • Portalize is scalable, so it can handle enterprise-level portals but works perfectly with smaller portals as well. Portalize can handle thousands of users yet is affordable enough to make hosting smaller portals economical and beneficial. You can start small and scale up, start big and stay big, or start small and stay small—each situation is perfectly suited for Portalize.
