Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has been improving the quality of life for people through the arts, charity, science and education for more than 65 years. On a mission to ensure sustainability, innovation and social and cultural cohesion, the Foundation sought a true no-code platform to mass digitalise and build complex, integrated workflows.
A mixture of paper, excel and cumbersome systems derived many challenges for the organisation. Long software development cycles, lack of flexibility within current systems, inability to integrate data sources and apps and inefficient collaboration were amongst the difficulties Gulbenkian faced prior to adopting a no-code approach.
Moreover, relying on professional developers meant waiting at least 6 months for a new system or process. In addition, the complexities of traditional software development made it very difficult to modify or extend solutions when new requirements were needed. As a result, the Foundation lagged when it came to creating new solutions or maintaining current solutions, affecting their ability to adapt to organisational demands.
Using Kianda, Gulbenkian have digitally transformed a variety of core business processes and have built 80+ complex workflows fully integrated with their data systems, involving customers and multi-functional teams. They have built fully integrated workflows in as little as 24-48 hours, significantly enhanced productivity, data collection and reporting and customer interactions along with enabling successful remote working.
“Kianda allowed us to evolve the entire lifecycle of the process, from the first input to the report about it.
It’s really no-code! It’s easy to use, easy to understand, fields and rules allow us to do everything we need on our own. It’s also easy to change, to adapt and to deploy new versions to customers.
For 21st century, I think platforms must react like Kianda does.”
