Intrexx : Digitalisation Powered by Low-Code Development
Katrin Beuthner, Managing Director
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, digitalisation was a business-critical step for organisations across the globe that wanted to enhance their existing processes and operations with innovative tech-driven solutions. Today, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, companies of all sizes are forced to digitalise their operations to cope with the disruptions caused by the pandemic and ensure business continuum. In light of this, the current market continues to become a highly competitive arena where vendors battle it out to become the preferred digitalisation partner for potential clients. In fact, a majority of companies are seeking out partner providers that can offer solutions that fit the unique workflow and process requirements of a firm. However, a these customisable offerings come at the cost of significant pricing structures and a big chunk of an organisation’s OPEX, smaller firms with limited resources struggle to reach their desired level of digitalisation.
As an antidote to this challenge, SMBs are turning to low-code software development platforms that can help them reach the pinnacle of business digitalisation without draining their operational and organisational resources. Despite the use of low-code devs platforms, a prevalent hurdle on the digitalisation journeys of smaller businesses is the lack of a consolidated and collaborative digital environment where employees can gain the benefits of a digitally-enabled workplace in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Addressing these problems with its low-code platform that combines the functionalities of both a low-code platform and social intranet solution to drive employee collaboration is Germany-based Intrexx. The company’s low-code platform drives better workforce collaboration via its ability to perform rapid and accurate data integration and process automation from a single pane of glass.

The fast and user-friendly communication between all the parties helped the stores improve their inventory and meet customer demands on-time. “No matter at which stage of digitalisation the customer is, they can always benefit from our solution and scale it according to their needs.” Explains Katrin.
