Is WorkXpress really the killerest app?

Lately in twitter I keep on stumbling upon WorkXpress posts claiming that the system is simply the treasure to work with and the next silver bullet.

That's quite a statement, isn't it?

Frankly, I kinda like to see how young companies are trying to strike out for themselves, even if they do it aggressively. And even the attempts to humble SalesForce, chasing SalesForce customers are pretty moving:

If WorkXpress was offered CRM solution like SalesForce, it wasn’t such an extraordinary thing. But the truth is it offers to create a CRM, and the difference is huge here.

I managed to find on WorkXpress site the system has a long history:
"After 6 years of R&D and over 4 years of customer testing, a 2nd generation of WorkXpress was released in 2008. Based on years of customer experience, WorkXpress holds the power to significantly raise the bar against which the marketplace evaluates software solutions."

So, I decided to take a closer look and check out the killer-CRM of WorkXpress and the way 5GL tools will blow my mind, what is that all actually about. Well, we’ll see.


  1. You bet we'll see. The same claims over and over. I call them PAASing gas.

  2. That’s actually kind of funny Alan, but in all seriousness what do you base your criticism on?

    Our vision is to deliver sophisticated applications without programming, and we see that vision provide real value to real customers every day. You might visit here; see a sampling of applications that non programmers have produced on our PaaS, or you might take the time to learn the platform yourself. You could even consider visiting a customer, and hearing from them directly.

    The value delivered is very real...shouldn't that matter?

    If we can agree that the vision is to deliver real value by rapidly deploying sophisticated functionality in a non-programmatic way that significantly reduces times and costs, then it is a fact, not a fart, that we hit home run’s every day.
