Let me …..by showing you an example, the Parsons Brinkerhoff application. Parsons Brinkerhoff is working with MAVEN, a group of civic organizations, to get public feedback on transportation projects in the greater Atlanta area. Since it is an application aimed at civic engagement, it needed to be available to everyone, on the web, and to all citizens, regardless of which smart phone they accessed it from. So, Parsons Brinkerhoff needed 4 platforms – iOS – both the iPhone and iPad, Android, and Blackberry. Parsons Brinkerhoff approached us in February, needing their application up and running by April. 2 months. 4 platforms in 2 months. How did we meet this need? With 1 Developer. Our 1 developer wrote the application once and deployed it to 4 platforms. He was able to create all of the code for the iPhone, android phone, blackberry and web, start to finish, in 2 months. That is the power of GeneXus. 4 Platforms, 2 months, 1 developer.
