Best RAD tool for web-based development in the world

We market and sell the following cloud-based solutions that were built with PHPRunner: Employee Performance Management (with built-in 360 Feedback); Customizable Industrial Skills Testing; and Employee Engagement and Survey solutions. All built and improved over several years using the capabilities of PHPRunner.

Pros

PHPRunner solves complex web-development problems with a holistic approach. It has a friendly Windows client for design and development. Your DB scheme can be developed within the client, using Maria-MySQL, MS-SQL, DB2, MS-Access, Postgres, Oracle, SQLite, ODBC, you name it. Authentication for your app with static or dynamic permissions is built-in and easily modified. A flexible interface with many design themes can be used to design your pages, including modern interface (grid sorting and rearrangement). Reports and charting (bar, line, gauge, pie, donut, stacked column, etc.) are easily done with the platform. Import and export of data is supported. Mobile web app interface can be included. Built-in menus with customization, built-in email capabilities, etc. etc. etc. Built-in distribution/update to your host. I could go on and on. Most importantly, event customization capabilities that allow you to tailor special features above and beyond the system is easily retained and re-merged as you enhance and add to your application. My experience goes back at least 5 major and many minor versions and over 8 years. Support is very good. They have REALLY helped me and my business!

Cons

There is very little to dislike. If anything, keep in mind that you should strive to stay reasonably current as web methodologies change (like the advancement of PHP versions). Keep up to date with your web host and their PHP and MySQL/Maria versions. Xlinesoft has done a great job improving and enhancing this offering, and in keeping the solution current with modern web technologies.

The best database application software ever

I designed many web applications using PHPRunner. Some of the biggest are call center environments, Help desks, shopping cards, ToDo lists, SMS functionality, Management dashboards, Literally hundreds of insurance applications, and last but not least, Lean Sigma six process applications that can monitor any process and its behavior using standard deviation.

Pros

PHPRunner can connect to your current database and create professional business applications in minutes. You do not need to be a hardcore programmer; however, if you can do a little coding, you will create big sophisticated applications as an individual, that will leave development teams asking, how did he do all of that in such a short time. The end to end process of creating an application from scratch is well thought out. It can be overwhelming if you open PHPRunner for the first time, but following the instruction and spending some time following available tutorials, you will be up and running in no time.

Cons

One can build anything using PHPRunner. Some advanced topics like custom CSS can be challenging as some visual CSS effects need to be coded.

Reasons for Switching to PHPRunner

Qlikview can only read data. PHPRunner can Add, Update, Delete. You have full control over the data using PHPRunner. QlikView is not for web applications. PHPRunner is.

Initial project build with PhpRunner

I am working on a rewrite of an Access case management system that I built 12 years and have supported ever since. I am amazed by how relatively easy it has been to build and get the features I needed. Support here on the PHPRUnner User Group on Facebook is very fast and helpful. Since I am in the 12 months after licensing, I get free support via email from the company (not code) and it has been very responsive. The most difficult part for me has been in figuring out the code I need to write to do special things. Again great support from other users. I have been making a list of places to get help or training available for PhpRunner. Cory's videos are wonderful, the vendor has Live Demos where you can run them to see what is possible and download the project and data and run locally and see how it was built. I could go on and on about resources available to help you.

Pros

Almost everything. You can do a simple app with default features very quickly. When building something more complex I typically find there is an option in the software to do what I want.

Cons

Somewhat difficult to figure out what code I need for events

Database Management Made Easy

Database management for a performing ARTS hall, and website for an HOA association.

Pros

PHPRunner always works! I never have to wonder if there are going to be issues when I build a new database.

Cons

I can't think of any. The software is fantastic, and support is better than that!

Reasons for Choosing PHPRunner

I did demo's of both programs three years ago. With PHPRunner I had a functional database and website built in less than an hour. With Scriptcase, I worked on a site for two hours and never did get it to work correctly.
