Abdul Karmach,
CO-Founder @ AscendWare.net
"We founded the company doing low code but hopped around different platforms because they all had critical limitations and dead ends. We needed low-code, but also complete flexibility — and that’s precisely what 8base provides. It allows us to build any application while dramatically reducing the expense and labor. "

"Usually, you expect to get 80% of what you want with low code; the other 20% is nearly impossible and you just burn a ton of time trying to accomplish it. We have not encountered that 20% at all since transitioning to 8base."
