skuid_rgb_1200pxIn the past, business leaders faced a tough choice when they wanted to create custom Salesforce apps, portals or sites. They could hire an outside Salesforce developer or have an internal developer learn Apex. Even the simplest project took months and cost thousands of dollars.

With Skuid, anyone can radically transform their Salesforce user experience with simple drag-and-drop tools. Skuid takes you way beyond simple customizations. We’re on a mission to make Salesforce users’ lives easier by giving them the power to create tailored apps, fully aligned to their business processes and brand. Skuid functions as a complete platform for creating custom user experiences — including dynamic visualizations and data from multiple platforms — without writing a single line of code.


Create Custom User Experiences

Skuid gives you complete control over both form and function of your apps, portals and sites. With Skuid, you can easily create experiences that mirror how your users behave. You can also maintain a consistent brand image with custom themes to match your colors, fonts, headers and footers.

With Skuid, you can prototype an app, site or portal and then deploy it instantly once you’re happy with it. Plus, once created, you can continue to iterate, making adaptations on the fly as business needs change. Skuid is massively configurable, giving you the flexibility to build dynamic, flexible, data-rich experiences in a fraction of the time, as compared to custom coding.

Bridge the Gap Between Visualforce and Lightning

User interfaces must be future-proof so that what you build today still works the next time Salesforce updates their platform. Because Skuid runs in both Visualforce and Lightning, Skuid functions like a bridge between Visualforce and Lightning.

Skuid is completely backwards compatible. There’s no need to wait for a new user interface or framework. Create the user experience of your dreams today, and let your imagination go wild tomorrow with Skuid running on Lightning.

You can take it one step further by creating your own Skuid components or running Lightning components in Skuid. With Skuid, enterprises can transition from Visualforce to Lightning with ease.

Connect to External Data

Our customers wanted a better way to see add, edit and delete data from different systems in one place, and we listened. Our upcoming product release, Banzai, lets you connect to external data sources from inside your Salesforce user experience.

Display data from sources that use a standard exchange format like OData or REST within any Skuid UI component, including graphs, tables, wizards and more. With Skuid, you can add, edit and delete records from many databases from one place in real-time.

Point and click with the Action Framework, or incorporate JavaScript and CSS

Part of Skuid’s “secret sauce” is the point-and-click Action Framework. With the Skuid Action Framework, you can perform multiple actions when the user interacts with certain elements in the page (Buttons, Row Actions, Mass Actions, etc…) or when changes are detected on Models. You can do it all without writing any code and even apply actions to imported Lightning components, dramatically extending their usefulness.

Developers can also extend Skuid with JavaScript and CSS. The rich Skuid JavaScript API provides full control of your user experience. You can create your own custom, configurable components and incorporate Lightning Components into Skuid interfaces.

Customizing your Salesforce user experience is easier than ever with Skuid. Want to learn more? Check out Skuid’s AppExchange listing to get a 30-day trial.
