Introducing trellispark Release 8!

by | Jan 15, 2024 | Blog, News

Our latest major release of trellispark continues our relentless pursuit to cut down the time and effort to deliver well crafted custom application solutions to production. Launch your MVP in weeks, not months. Replace existing business apps with a tailormade solution at one-tenth the effort and delivery time!

trellispark empowers non-developers to configure a forms-based custom business application user experience in real-time. Over 90% of the code normally required for the user experience and CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) is replaced with configuration data using trellispark. Without knowing how to create JavaScript or other coding, configure unique user roles and security requirements, record lifecycle transitions, optimized user flows, customer and supplier portals, generative AI capabilities, and much more.

By eliminating over 90% of the code, your effort and costs are substantially reduced and your time to value 🚀🚀🚀!
