LeapXL is a no-code, drag-and-drop app publishing PaaS with built-in API integration.
Drag & Drop App Editor
Our no-code platform makes building apps quick and easy.
LeapXL’s drag and drop editor makes creating apps quick and painless. You incorporate your existing spreadsheet and its formulas, so you don't have to start from scratch. You keep using your current skills and investment in what you have already built. Build forms, reports, and visualizations in seconds. Deploy with the click of a button. You can go from spreadsheet to enterprise-grade application almost instantly.
In LeapXL, data is encrypted while at rest and in transit, so your data is always safe. When at rest all data sits in an encrypted database. When in transit the data is encrypted with SSL certificates and the latest protocols. Build compliant applications that meet HIPAA, FERPA, and EU GDPR requirements.
Access is not allowed until user credentials are confirmed. Automatic logoff and screen lockout help keep data safe when a user leaves their desk. LeapXL also offers single sign-on that can integrate with Active Directory.
Collaborate in real-time with team members.
Data sharing means that different users not only have access but that access is controlled. LeapXL allows the administrator to limit access based on user needs. For example, some users may only be allowed to enter data. That data may be restricted to a few data elements or open as far as needed. Other users may only be allowed to look at real-time results. The combinations of how these controls can be applied is virtually limitless. Data sharing means being able to work together. Most users have specific jobs requiring specific kinds of data. Those users have ready access to needed data as well as ready access to add new data. There are also cases where data needs to be changed or the user needs greater access.
Does LeapXL have a centralized database? Indeed it does. All data, spreadsheets and row data, is stored in a shareable central database. When people say “we need a centralized database,” that often means more than just wanting to share data. LeapXL allows you to securely share data with people in your enterprise who need to know – in real-time. Data becomes safer with protections to reduce error and cleanly add it to a central data store.
APIs & Integrations
Robustly share data with your systems and web-based apps.
Seamlessly consume, add, or update data from other systems. Connect to databases and RESTful APIs without any programming. With LeapXL you can integrate spreadsheets, databases, and API data all within the same app.
LeapXL makes connecting to data easy with a unique drag n' drop way to do it yourself. Integrations can be for simple things, for example, moving billable time to a billing system or involve lots of data where differing subsets or data are moved at different times and shared with different systems, and LeapXL supports such complex integrations, for example, sharing data from the entire life-cycle of a customer transaction with an SAP system and some independent departmental systems.
Learn what's going on and what happened without any extra effort.
LeapXL stands ready to show how "it" happened. Detailed key-stroke level audits are automatically generated by all of the applications built using LeapXL. Information describes how the data is being captured and recorded. Audits can be searched or reported. Searching makes it easier to find a known value and then learn how it got that way. For example, someone entered $12,345.00, when it should have been $123.45. Searching the audits for $12,345.00 will quickly show who entered it, when they entered it, where they entered it, and how they entered it.
Know the quality, source, and completeness of your data.
Full transparency is often elusive. LeapXL makes business and data processes visible from start to end.
Business leaders need to know and understand the story of "what was" and "what is". LeapXL proves data in real-time. Dashboards graphically show the results as data is captured from anywhere. Data visualizations translate reports into an up-to-the-moment understanding of business health and activity.
Leaders, managers, and contributors alike, want to be able to understand the meaning of specific data. For example, when sales are up, what sectors are changing and which sales people are having more success. Which ones are having less success? Supporting data is always just a mouse click away. Users of all kinds need to police the system to find aberrations, responsible parties, and other things that have gone amuck. LeapXL always has the record of how data came to be in detailed audits.
Assign permissions based on a user's skill or role.
Groups of users can be granted permission within your LeapXL app, limiting or expanding data access. Access controls are similar to those found in major systems. Access controls can be strict and limiting but there are cases where security needs to be lax, for example, a data survey form published on a public webpage open to the world.
Security is automatically baked-in for all LeapXL apps. It's up to you to specify if you want a strict mandatory approach or some user discretion.
Access reports, visualizations, and forms from your phone or tablet.
LeapXL apps become available for full-screen computers, tables and smartphones. LeapXL will adjust to the screen size encountered, but you can define completely different experiences to better support the user's choice of device. For example, full detail may be desirable on a larger screen but only key values should be showing on a small screen.
LeapXL can run apps engaging processing from the server in the cloud, off-loading some of the heavy lifting in order to improve performance over cell networks and other slower access points.
Dig deeper into reports and visualizations to learn more about data.
LeapXL automatically adds full drill-down to applications. A single mouse click on an element in a report or data visualization graphic produces a report with the supporting detail. Each element in the drill-down report can also be drilled to find more and more granular detail until the initial numbers are found. In other words, it is always possible to find out how any total came to be.
Being able to drill-down on any element of data is part of LeapXL's commitment to transparency in systems. Transparency that shines light on summary numbers to take away guess work.
Erase mistakes by managing change.
You can continue to develop, maintain or improve applications while they are being used. Testers can be given access to the new version of an application (say a small group of current users) while other users continue uninterrupted.
Improvements can be “published” to take effect at a specific transition time (i.e., midnight). Improvements can be released in total or as a subset, as needed. For example, assume a change in business practice requires an immediate change to your application while you are prototyping other enhancements. You can create, test and release the required change while leaving your current prototype active with testers.
Who made which change to your application is automatically audited.
Reports & Visualizations
Create reports, dashboards, and visualizations in seconds.
It’s easy to build a LeapXL app that supports C-suite decision-making complete with comparative graphic data visualizations and summary reports. LeapXL can build real-time dashboards that support decisions for rank and file individual contributors to board members. Information flowing from other systems via No-code Connect or data being created in your LeapXL-built app can be observed in a real-time dashboard.
LeapXL empowers users to answer more questions supported by better data. On-demand, real-time and secure reports can be generated showing the actual data or graphic summaries. Both can be defined, but LeapXL will automatically generate reports showing supporting data with a single mouse click.
Gain better insights by knowing the origin of your data.
Leadership's risk doesn't stop at just making decisions on partial data. What about the data reliability, completeness and quality? Leaders want to know “how solid is this data?” 84% of CEOs say that they do not trust the data on which they are making decisions.
LeapXL not only audits how data moves and changes, the platform also "audits the audits". Access to knowing data competence is always a mouse click away. The source of data and how that data was handled is a direct indicator of reliability.
Data reliability varies based on the source and conditions when collected. For example, data coming from understaffed teams or facilities may not be as thorough as data coming from others. Data may be coming from other systems with limited management, less skilled users, or lax collection filters. The kind of business tools used to collect, process, and transport data can help perfect that data or add error at an alarming frequency. For example, knowing that cost numbers are coming from spreadsheets shared between users and departments might lose some comfort on the accuracy. People also have an enormous effect on the competence of data. Knowing the people, organizations, and kinds of business tools that collected, processed, assembled and reported the data is a direct measure of that data's reliability.
Improve data consistency and reduce errors with custom input forms.
LeapXL data collection forms make it easy to collect data and reduce errors in the process. No more cutting and pasting into a spreadsheet and having it go into the wrong cell. Collect data the smart way and gain a greater level of consistency with your data. With LeapXL you can create custom forms to suit your needs within seconds.
