TrackVia – Build Business Apps

Having basic programming skills has always been a prerequisite for building custom business applications — until now. TrackVia is a web-based tool that organizations can use to create their own business applications with zero programming required.

TrackVia aims to replace the generic software and Excel spreadsheets that most organizations use to track and manage their business processes. Instead, you can drag your existing spreadsheets and databases into TrackVia and turn them into secure online applications. The business applications you create with TrackVia can be setup to include everything from real-time reports to custom forms, and even dashboards where you can find everything in one location. Streamline your workflow by setting up alerts to notify you whenever colleagues have entered new information into your system, or schedule reports to automatically be sent out at pre-determined times each week.

TrackVia is designed to support a broad range of issues, including sales, marketing, projects, support, and assets. For example, a user could rely on TrackVia for tracking maintenance for all of his company’s assets. Setting a TrackVia application up requires little more than dragging a spreadsheet into place and adding a few new fields, which means a company’s IT department doesn’t have to be involved in the process whatsoever. For teams that are tired of relying on spreadsheets and databases for business management, TrackVia is an interesting solution to check out.
