Learn how to build internal tools for your team without writing a line of code

Welcome to Noloco

Noloco enables you to build internal tools for your team without writing a line of code.
Our no-code builder has been designed first and foremost with non-developers in mind. This means that our platform is easy to use and you can build internal tools from your data through a simple point and click interface.
At the same time, we've ensured that you can build powerful apps that perfectly fit your team's workflows by catering for a high degree of customisation with regards to how data is displayed and presented in your apps.

How does it work?

Noloco enables you to quickly builds apps from your data. You can either create Noloco Collections (database tables) to store data directly in Noloco or connect your external data source (like PostgreSQL, Airtable or Google Sheets).
From there, you're able to add collection views to your apps that list the records in each of your collections. Each collection view comes out of the box with record pages (so you can click into a particular record from the list) and also ready-made forms as well (so you can easily add new records from your app).

What can I build with Noloco?

Our customers use Noloco for a wide variety of internal tools: from backoffice tools, to contractor payroll management, to internal practice management to sophisticated CRMs.
Ultimately, the apps you build depend on your use case and the kind of data your team interacts with on a daily basis.
For example, watch the following demo to see how an e-commerce business could build a backoffice tool for their support team from their PostgreSQL data.
If you need some inspiration for your own app, you might benefit from using one of our free templates.
