AOC Show 165: Building Custom Apps to Empower Your Unique Situation

Ellen Bensky
Steve Nonis

Turner Fleischer

Eddie Wang, Growth Hacker at App Sheet, and Mike Saltijeral, Owner of Industrial Fence Inc, join us on this episode 165 of Art of Construction.

In many recent episodes we have discussed the Big Data explosion currently happening in design and construction. When on this topic, the question usually arises of what exactly the best way is to utilize this data to help grow your business. If you ask AppSheet, the answer is that there is no one best way. In fact, the best way will inevitably be different for each and every company. It is with this mindset that AppSheet provides a no-code application development platform that allows users to create mobile, tablet, and web applications using data sources like Google Drive, DropBox, Office 365, and other cloud-based spreadsheet and database platforms.

We’ve had a ton of construction platforms on this show before, but AppSheet is unique in that it is all about empowering the user to create a custom app instead of selling the user something pre-designed. In order to better tell the story of why this is powerful, Mike Saltijeral joined us to explain how App Sheet has given him the ultimate freedom to create unique and innovative solutions to the situations his fencing company faces.

Mike is very adamant about using the word “situation” rather than “problem” to promote a mindset of constant improvement, which is something we here at Art of Construction greatly respect. As digital technology started to explode in the industry, he spent many hours assessing all the options he had at his disposal to try to improve his company. But when faced with long, drawn-out coding languages that were worlds away from what he was used to, the best way forward wasn’t exactly clear. Plus, his needs were far too specific to be able to easily integrate a platform that already exists. And so, for him, App Sheet became the perfect solution, allowing him to create custom applications to improve his business without going down the rabbit hole of intense coding software.

Mike’s story is one that many business owners currently adopting new technology can relate to. And for business owners that have so far hesitated to adopt new technology, his story serves as an inspiration.

Join Devon as he goes on a journey with Eddie and Mike to learn all about AppSheet, what it means to be able to build problem-solving digital solutions for your company without needing code, and what it takes to be a true leader and pursue these solutions in a way that benefits your entire team and your customer community.
