Recently, Google has made the App Maker generally available. Its main purpose is to make it easy for teams to build custom apps to speed up workflows and make processes better. The G Suite low-code development environment is included with G Suite Business and Enterprise editions, as well as, with G Suite for Education
Why do you need custom apps?
According to CDW, the right custom mobile app can save each employee 7.5 hours per week. In addition to that, companies that use custom apps record an average revenue gain of 16%. Businesses are realising these benefits and are allocating more of their budget on custom mobile apps and related technologies. Global Mobile Enterprise Business Application Revenue reported that the mobile enterprise app market will nearly double from 2012 to 2018, growing from $31 billion to approximately $61 billion.
App Maker was created to enable your line-of-business teams to build apps for the jobs these bigger apps don’t tackle.
Shape company processes like requesting purchase orders, travel forms, employee appraisals, document approval and change request control forms, or you can speed up business workflows like filing and resolving help desk tickets as if you designed and built the processes yourself.
