“We have already experienced the power of Rappit firsthand, allowing us to bring to market a next-generation digital platform at record speed. The possibility of translating our user stories in first developments to show to clients is unique and really helps sell our solutions,” says Brend Kouwenhoven, General Manager, Color Concepts.

Rappit accelerates application development by starting the process with smart requirements gathering and documentation completed by consultants, then progresses to instant prototyping, royalty-free code generation, and flexible cloud or on-prem deployment options.

Vanenburg developed Rappit to address the problems with typical developer tools. Unlike low-code platforms, Rappit provides the following advantages:

  • No vendor lock-in
  • Easy customizations
  • No runtime licenses
  • Deployment at scale

While optimized for the leading and open Google Cloud technology, applications generated with Rappit also run on other major cloud platforms or on-premise.

“I am very excited to introduce Rappit to the market after using it ourselves for many customers. What’s new is that Color Concepts and a multinational manufacturing company are now using Rappit in-house. This product release is a fundamental milestone for Vanenburg. With Rappit, we can now provide developers with a time-saving alternative to developing applications completely from scratch. And we do this without creating vendor lock-in. Users own the source code generated and can easily extend the applications by themselves,” says Ardjan Baan, Co-CEO & COO, Vanenburg.

“Rappit brings together our deep experience in application development and building leading enterprise IT solutions. We could create this product due to our long history of building industry-leading software platforms. I am very proud of our team, who turned our vision for the future of software development into a leading product,” notes Jan Baan, Founder & Chairman, Vanenburg Group.
