Rapid application development and Alpha Five v11: How does productivity translate into business for developers?


Productivity is probably the single biggest factor that defines the Alpha Five v11 rapid application development platform, and  productivity is what  drives developers to choose to develop in it.

This past week we received the following email from a developer who has used Alpha for some time. We think the email says it all. (The name of the developers has been withheld for privacy reasons.)
Just this past week I made $3000 writing a quick  app for a client.  The client first went to a .NET developer who quoted the project at $30,000 and a 6 week turnaround.

I did it in Alpha Five v11 in a morning.  I originally asked for $1500, but the client was so happy with the results, he paid me $3000.  If that is not a testament to the power of Alpha 5 V11, I don’t know what is.  The project involved reporting  and the new Layout Table Report builder allowed me to easily and quickly meet the needs of the client.

Thank you for a great product.
