About RapidApps

RapidApps' goal is to help business develop applications faster and change them more easily to service and adapt to changing business conditions. We believe that application development should not be a long or expensive process, but should deliver working systems in weeks, not months or years. We have invested in technology to help achieve that goal. Specifically we can:

  • Develop a new application from scratch in a matter of weeks
  • Develop new functionality for existing applications
  • Move existing applications to an open platform
  • Migrate Microsoft Excel applications to be web applications.
