"GeneXus enhances the evolution of our business, taking care of technological evolution"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

Being able to work with a multidisciplinary but small team of professionals with a lot of focus on the needs of the business, leaving GeneXus to take care of a correct and constant improvement in the code, the security and the performance of the solutions, and especially the permanent evolution of the technology.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

The limited availability of rich user interface components, and easy incorporation as they exist in other platforms

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

Develop a large and complex product, integrated with multiple tourism service providers, reservation systems, and e-commerce sites, with constant needs to adapt to changes and innovation in business and technology, with a small development team that must have a lot of business knowledge

"Productivity and future proof"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

One of the core GeneXus strong points that I highlight is that it is a very powerful low code platform that generates applications in different platforms and programming languages using the same code in a very short time. This is valuable both for small and big companies. Another very important thing is the short learning curve of Genexus that allows any company to create a Genexus development team that can achieve results very quickly. This saves money for the company and allows them to do more with the same team. Also, GeneXus is a tool that allows expansion and integration with others development tools allowing further enhancement of the software development process. One of these tools is K2BTools, which has the same development philosophy as Genexus and allows any development team to achieve even higher levels of productivity.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

Genexus evolution is so fast it forces us to be alert and work to be up to date. This effort has its rewards as it makes our systems to stay current with the newest technologies that appear every day in the software development industry.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

In our company we provide GeneXus solutions for different business areas like: industrial, health, logistics, government, telecommunications, education, financial, agricultural, etc. Among those one is a world class ERP that was 100% developed with Genexus & K2BTools whose name is K2B ERP , created for the private and government sector.

"Desarrollo rápido, fácil y multi-plataforma"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

Como consultor de aplicaciones puedo experimentar en cada proyecto la versatilidad y rapidez de desarrollo, es cierto que no es un generador de propósito general, sin embargo, se puede extender la funcionalidad brindada por Genexus de forma rápida.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

Costo de licencia y poca expansión en el mercado.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

Sistemas web empresariales, e-comerce (web, Android, ios), Gestión documental, CRM, etc. Los principales beneficios es la velocidad de desarrollo, código generado estándar (minimiza los riesgos de programadores poco experimentados), un solo programador Genexus es capaz de programar todas las capas de una aplicación.

"Great for business websites and mobile apps."
What do you like best about GeneXus?

Allows you to focus on generating speedier apps rather to worrying about the complexities of developing a new software product. In addition to being able to connect to practically any database, it allows you to run your work in a variety of various settings.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

Small and medium-sized businesses may struggle to implement it due to its high cost. Many times it is tough to discover a solution to the unexpected occurrences that you may face due to the lack of documentation for this program.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

Throughout my career, I've relied on GeneXus in a variety of high-stakes work settings. This improvement in productivity and quality has been seen since our first assignment together. The GeneXus platform has adapted to the current technical developments, allowing us not only to produce outstanding online applications but also native mobile apps. Complex software systems should be developed and maintained by creating an abstract model and allowing GeneXus to handle the technical aspects.

"Very versatile and supports a large number of programming languages"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

This software is very versatile that offers a great capacity to generate applications and Framework in almost any language (Visual Basic 6.0, ASP.Net, Visual.Net, Java, Javascritp, HTM, XML, C ++, C #, etc, etc.). It depends on the modules that the company has. You can generate Desktop applications with Web communication and vice versa. Its power is impressive

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

It's a bit heavy and generates too many tables. It should be noted that it is also an "expensive" product and that the maintenance of the applications can only be done through genexus itself, which even if it throws you code like Java, VB or C, you will not be able to exploit it from those languages. Making a custom program will be limited by the same Genexus limitations.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

It is much easier to create and maintain web applications with this tool since its generated is executed in such a way that it saves us many programming lines. Also you can test the applications before giving their final finish. It helps us a lot in the creation of native applications for various devices with a professional appearance and great stability.

"Review de un viejo programador."
What do you like best about GeneXus?

Que al cambiar un atributo se actualizan todos los lugares donde se utiliza y la función References.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

Que los bugs solo se reparan para versiones nuevas, no hay una política de mantenimiento de versiones anteriores. Siempre la solución a todos los problemas está en la próxima versión.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

ERP corporativo, facilidad de mantenimiento con el paso del tiempo.

"Easily solve major issues, however struggle in simple stuff"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

Not only effortlessly but also in a simple way you can set up your database and it's backend. I really appreciate it. With just a few clicks the database can be established. It enables the use of tamplates to set up a consistent layout.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

It struggles to set minor changes in the front-end. Despite having bought Work With Plus, which is supposed to solve front-end issues, I spend most of the time fixing paddings or alining items. Moreover, I find frustrating the time it takes it to build. It should be a 64-bit program. The documentation provided is pathetic. There are just a few examples, no idex, vage explanation. That cause that learning requires plenty of time. The support that Genexus provides is awful. It never gets the point,

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

I am currently implementing web apps in the factory, addressing several issues that were previously tackled with excel, dramatically increasing production and diminishing workload to users. Furthermore, we were able to gather information that was in excel files onto one extensive database.
