Reduce SharePoint Development Cycles from Months to Days

If users are prepared to use template-based products, as opposed to requiring a custom look and feel, then Quick Apps will bring down the time and cost of development of an application from 6-9 months to days and weeks. [For] example: [we prototyped] an international recruitment system with Quick Apps in 6 days. It would have taken months in C# with Visual Studio.

Rapidly Rebuild Lotus Notes Applications without Custom Code

Previously we used Lotus Notes. Now we are (almost) able to get the same functionality in SharePoint thanks to Quest Quick Apps. We are able to fulfill many user requests which otherwise would not be made due to the cost and effort involved in making custom solutions.

Code-free SharePoint List Rollups

We significantly reduced the amount of custom code and technical solutions needed to provide rollups and charting within our SharePoint intranet site. Multiple power users are now building out enhancements to their sites using the qListView web part. This would have required a developer working with the business in each example in the past.

IT Manager, Medium Enterprise Insurance Company

Create Custom SharePoint Dashboards without Custom Code

Quick Apps for SharePoint enabled us to provide dashboards in our Microsoft CRM application that weren’t possible with out-of-the-box SharePoint, because of combining multiple entities in one dashboard. End users can now see their status 24/7, which was great for user adoption.
