Velocity IT has developed a revolutionary product called AppSprint for K2 that is disrupting the way we develop K2 Apps. AppSprint uses an ingenious way to quickly generate fully functional K2 Apps by simply uploading an Excel Spreadsheet into K2. It is an essential part of any K2 customer’s tool set. It turns days’ worth of development into seconds!
K2 Automated Testing Software
BenchQA allows full test automation of K2, including fully automated K2 SmartForms and K2 Workflow testing. It promotes test driven development for K2 and ensures continued quality assurance for K2 solutions. Easily apply changes to test cases to accommodate changes to K2 apps and ensure all apps are regression tested to avoid defects and assure continuous quality.
AppSprint generates the underlying SQL database, relationships and tables for you, and even upload all your data. What normally takes a few days, takes less than a minute.
Generating your K2 App simply requires an Excel spreadsheet containing your data. This is not actually a pre-requisite for AppSprint to generate Apps. If you have an existing database or SmartObjects, simply point AppSprint to them, and it will also generate the K2 App without the need to upload anything.
