When choosing a loan management system (LMS), there are many features your company is going to need based on the products and services you offer, business size, and traffic. There is, however, one feature your company should choose no matter your other business requirements: low-code or no-code technology. A 2021 DZone trend report on “Low-Code Development” showed that 82.3% of software professionals have used low-code platforms, and 85.4% admit that the platforms are useful for business process management.
Tech experts and industry leaders agree across the board – it’s one of the best features to look for when considering any new SaaS system.

What is low-code and no-code software?
A no-code software solution allows users to easily customise applications, whether you have experience in programming or don’t. “While low-code and no-code platforms were designed to meet different needs for different user bases, the line between the two technologies, in practice, has become blurred,” Fixate IO representative Chris Tozzi writes for TechTarget. While a no-code solution doesn’t require you to write a single line of code, a low-code solution may require minimal lines of code.
The lack of code writing doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t require any customer support when setting up or customising your new system, but it will definitely be more logical and intuitive. Implementing and maintaining a no-code system still requires skill, although you won’t be required to write any code. No-code systems include pre-built modules that you can then customise without the need of a programming team. Features include such aspects as drop-down menus and drag-and-drop options to simplify the functions.
What are the benefits of low-code and no-code software?
1. Democratise entrepreneurship
If the only way to get your fintech product up and running is by becoming a programmer and writing code, that greatly limits the amount of people who are capable of starting a business. With a no-code or low-code solution anyone can build their own product and launch a company without needing to become a developer or hire a whole IT team. You can do more with less capital, which makes becoming an entrepreneur more accessible.
2. Increased agility
Less time spent on coding means systems are implemented and developed more quickly than standard systems. “They bring the same benefits, including faster development, more resilient solutions and the ability to quickly adapt to new requirements,” GT Software Representative Steve Hassett told Forbes. You don’t necessarily have to go with a full new system either, as no-code solutions can easily integrate with legacy systems.
3. Higher productivity
No-code systems make day-to-day changes much faster, allowing your team to get more done in less time. If your business team wants to create a new product, you don’t have to wait for your IT time to get their developers involved, and you can launch more quickly. A no-code solution can also help avoid IT backlogs of changes waiting to be implemented and bug fixes, which you’ll have less of with no or low-code options.
4. Focus on development
All of the previously mentioned benefits are directly related to your company’s pocketbook. Any time you’re minimising time to market and increasing efficiency, it leaves your business with more money and resources to spend on development and scaling your company’s growth. No and low-code systems can drastically speed up development cycles. “Flawlessly functioning products and visually appealing designs can be created in a matter of minutes instead of weeks. That’s game-changing,” Dogtown Media LLC Representative Marc Fischer told Forbes.
