What do digital applications and food have in common?
Once you’ve tasted a great Thai curry, you’re hooked. And the only thing that tastes better than someone making a meal for you is the triumph of making a better one yourself. What if you could take the same approach with building Apps?
Like Hello Fresh, Softools provides all the instructions and ingredients out of the box.
With your new-found hankering for a Thai curry, let’s explore your options when it comes to sating your Appetite (hah, get it? Because App… Appetite? I’m accepting bookings)
The First: Cooking From Scratch
Laborious, involved, and time-consuiming, you can make a meal yourself from scratch. Buying all the ingredients from spice to rice, preparing everything as required. A labour of love, but one that requires a significant amount of knowledge. Messing up any one of these stages will result in a sub-par meal. At which point… You probably should have had someone else make it. Cooking for your own pleasure is one thing, but if you’ve a room full of hungry guests relying on your hospitality, one way or another you’re going to need to deliver.
The Second: Cooking From a Packet
Spices? Schmices. Why worry about making sure your pestle and mortar is good to go, if you can buy spices that are good to go? This option is the equivalent of low code - much of the complexity has been removed by a balanced spice mix fo correct proportions being provided for you, but you still need to know how to cook it. When and how to add the other ingredients. The order in which things need to be done to bring about your reduced-complexity (but still yummy) meal.
The Third: Cooking From A Box
This is where something like Hello Fresh comes in (not a sponsor!) - For far less than attempting the whole shabang from scratch or half of what you need. When Cooking From A Box, everything you need is brought to you, in a form that’s easy to use, and is accompanied by detailed instructions to take you from A to B in short order and without confusion.
This one is our wheelhouse. Softools specialises in giving you an environment with all the tools you need, without the need for coding or special recipes. You can build an App in minutes, and learn how to in mere hours using our world-class training course. It’s simple. It’s quick. It comes with instructions AND it’s entirely free-form. Once you have a feel for it, you can do what you like. What’s not to love?
The Fourth: Get a Takeaway
We’ve all been there. It’s late. You’re tired. You don’t have time to cook or you don’t have the ingredients or you don’t have the time or willpower to go get the ingredients. You pick up the phone. And someone awesome not only cooks it for you, they then deliver it to you. This is another instance where Softools comes in - if you need something, but don’t have the time or knowledge to do it yourself - we can do it for you. Better yet, we can do it alongside you, and train you in how to use it along the way.
In summary, each has its merits, and each has its uses. The sort of approach you take should depend on the situation at hand; none of these methods is the correct one to choose in every scenario. Requirements will differ, as will the time and resources to get the job done. But they all still end up pretty yummy, when used correctly.
