Uiflow is accelerating development across all industries, but we’ve noticed a recurring use case: management systems. These systems (or portals) are web-based apps that centralize management and/or organization for specific aspects of a company, like content, jobs, or logos. Many deployed Uiflow applications are portals focusing on projects, customer relationships, content, business processes, and inventory management.

What makes Uiflow the go-to tool for building mission-critical use cases like management systems?

No-code is already disrupting software development. Compared to traditional lifecycles, no-code is opening doors to faster iterations, building transparency, and quicker handoffs/feedback cycles. Uiflow takes the no-code revolution to an entirely new level by offering the increased flexibility and extensibility required to build complex, scalable software. Our product incorporates no-code benefits into a design that keeps your existing backend infrastructure and requirements in mind.

We’ve observed emerging UI logic patterns within Uiflow management portals that include authentication and connecting to external data sources. Let’s look at how Uiflow’s flexibility makes it incredibly simple to get data—no matter where it lives. We’ve invested in an easily extensible framework for adding providers like Auth0 and data sources like Firebase to your web projects. Moreover, our data flow design makes combining multiple data sources and creating complex actions easier than ever.

Even though we’re optimizing studio design for significant use cases like management portals, we’re still working to equip you with the tools you need for any situation. While our command line interface (CLI) lets you import your design systems, data connectors, and custom components, our workspaces compartmentalize the development process into Design, Connect, and Logic tabs, so your whole team can collaborate and build together. The CLI is a recent addition to our platform, and we’ve already seen developers import code for several exciting use cases like web3.

Let’s look into some management system use cases to understand how developers can take advantage of Uiflow.

Project Management

Uiflow is accelerating development across all industries, but we’ve noticed a recurring use case: management systems. These systems (or portals) are web-based apps that centralize management and/or organization for specific aspects of a company, like content, jobs, or logos. Many deployed Uiflow applications are portals focusing on projects, customer relationships, content, business processes, and inventory management.

Customer Relationship Management

Another major use case for Uiflow is building out customer relationship management (CRM) tools, which help organizations manage and analyze customer interactions and data throughout the sales cycle. With Uiflow’s flexibility, you can set up data flows and custom modules tailored to your exact use case within hours instead of weeks.

Content Management

We’ve seen Uiflow developers build content management systems to view, modify and publish different kinds of content for users and persist the information to their back-end database. Joyraft, a startup that helps connect you with unique local experiences, uses Uiflow to power and manage content flow in its mobile app. Their CMS enables multiple contributors to create posts and other data (e.g., venues, user data, tags, etc.) and edit them as needed.

Business Process Management

Another critical use case for Uiflow is the development of business process management systems (BPMS), which organizations use to manage and automate their internal processes, such as purchasing and invoicing. Some Uiflow developers have integrated advanced features like panel automation to enable users to fill out forms with different data points and admins to grant approvals, take notes, and ensure compliance.

Inventory Management

Lastly, Uiflow can help you build inventory management systems (IMS). Organizations use these portals to track and manage their inventory, which includes everything from raw materials to finished products. Uiflow developers have built IMS to help with more specific use cases like traceability, which enables their users to ensure materials in their manufacturing processes have been sustainably used from the start. With Uiflow, you can improve the accuracy & reliability of inventory data to help avoid stock-outs and other inventory-related issues.
