Mobile Team Management SaaS App AthletiCloud: Developed 8 Times Faster with Alpha Anywhere

worldpay logoWe are proud to announce that AthletiCloud was built in record time in Alpha Anywhere

Cloudworks Global recently released a robust, scalable payment-enabled application using the Alpha/Worldpay API that is now built into Alpha Anywhere 3.0
Alpha Anywhere is a rapid mobile application development platform. Built in tools allow you to add data security and integration, offline access, and more. Alpha's low code framework allows you to rapidly build and deploy mobile, web, and desktop application. Cloudworks Global was able to deliver a mobile application in a fraction of the time with more functionality than anticipated.

The AthletiCloud app from Cloudworks Global serves as a mobile information hub for high school athletic directors, coaches, athletes and parents. It was built, tested and deployed dramatically faster than typical app development timeframes that Cloudworks Global had previously experienced and at significantly lower cost than alternate approaches.

The Alpha Anywhere mobile development platform flexibility allowed Cloudworks Global to quickly update the app to meet requirements, while seamless integration with Worldpay saved significant development time.

The application quickly expanded from high school athletics into a complete solution for anyone within a school system that needs to manage resources, scheduling and payments.

“Our mission is to create a universal platform that enables education and non-profits to more easily manage payments, connect and organize members, and communicate valuable information via mobile devices,” said Andrew Oldfield, CEO of Cloudworks Global. “We attempted to develop our second version of AthletiCloud using other technologies, but after ten months of development we were only 75 percent of the way there. By leveraging the expertise of Alpha Software and Worldpay, within two months, we built, tested and deployed our new app including new capabilities surpassing the original scope which enables us to seize new market opportunities. We delivered the app in less time, with less staff and for significantly less cost. We are beyond impressed."

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
