CLEVR Debuts Low-Code and No-Code Tools to Raise Bar on Software Development

CLEVR, the company that helps enterprises accelerate their digital transitions through low-code and no-code development solutions, is launching its international expansion of the CLEVR brand and unveiling the company’s business model.

When Mansystems and Flowfabric, two leading Mendix partners, merged to create a superpower in services and software development, they named the combined company CLEVR.

The company now employs a hybrid business model, equal parts solution and services, that it calls Software with a Service (SWAS).

The model is designed to assist the legions of people around the world involved in the daunting task of digitalizing enterprises: CIOs and enterprise architects, product owners, medium-sized-business owners and IT service providers.

The CLEVR team relies on the Mendix platform, recognized by research firms Forrester and Gartner as a world leader in low-code and no-code.

Not only has CLEVR accumulated years of expertise creating problem-solving software apps with Mendix, but the company now employs more expert Mendix developers than any other, according to the vendor.

“There is a silent revolution happening in software development, hiding in plain sight,” said Angelique Schouten, who took over as CLEVR CEO in March. “And that’s the rise of low-code and no-code, a visual approach to software development with the power to accelerate the world’s digital transition. However, I believe many of the low-code and no-code companies are selling a false promise. Low-code and no-code by itself is not the solution to all your challenges because you still need to consider security, architecture, infrastructure and performance when developing software applications. If you use low-code and no-code solutions and don’t consider these areas, you’ll run into enormous problems when apps become more complex, start to scale and support business-critical processes.”

Part of CLEVR’s business is offering professional services and assisting companies—in financial services, energy, government and manufacturing—to create dynamic and useful applications that advance at a high velocity their own or their customers’ digitalization efforts.
