m Power Development Platform4.7
- Stephen C.Senior Consultant and Practice Leader
m-Power provides fast, easy tools for the modestly technically competent person to create new tables, upload data, create reports and visualizaions PLUS create powerful web applications in a low-code/no-code environment. The only programming course I have ever taken was Fortran IV in the late 1970's and yet I was able to accomplish all of the tasks listed here in the first line. The visualizations might not quite be as sexy as PowerBI but m-Power's data import tools, overall ease of use and ability to develop applications over top of the data make m-Power stand out from the crowd. The ability to write-back data is phenomenal - a developer can create a fast app for the end-user to maintain information like budgets for later comparison to actual results. The row-level and user-specific record security is exactly what is needed. Rapid deployment, user-creation and setu-up of the training environment by our VAR (MRC PRODUCTIVITY) was amazing. MRC's online education was very good preparation to hit the ground running for the instructor-led training by a top notch resource dedicated to our team of (6).

m-Power allows us to meet numerous needs and requirements of our agency where our other software platforms fall short. m-Power allows us to build very basic applications for our users, and at the same time, allows us to create elaborate, functionality-rich applications and systems, depending on the skill set of the developer. The documentation on the MRC website is exceptionally well done and easy to find answers to the issue you're facing. If the answer can't be found in their documentation or published tickets with solutions, they have staff ready and available (and highly competent and friendly) to assist. They also offer their services to build applications when our staff don't have the bandwidth or knowledge, and everything is extremely affordable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You dont need to know Java programming to build web apps. The built-in templates provide most of the basic functionality you will need to create a user friendly web app. Plenty of online documentation and videos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I do not like that you can't use a duplicate field name in a table, even if its in a different dictionary. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

When creating applications, I try to limit my use of m-Painter as much as possible because within my organization there are many developers that might make changes to current applications and if they are unaware of the m-Painter code changes on that particular application, it could be wiped out and not function properly for the end user. Some features such as populating only the last row of data, etc. can only be done in m-Painter and is easily rebuilt over. I would like the capability of doing that without utilizing m-Painter.

That it has limitations on the outputs such as GUI buttons and using it as the tool for dashboarding. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Easy, headache-free way to manage your projects. Implementation and onboarding/training for users is a breeze. The web-browser interface is phenomenal.

It might not be the world's most intuitive software, but the type of users we on-boarded aren't exactly tech geniuses either, I can't really think of any major cons so I had to mention something.
