The Digitalization Journey Of Drinkizz – Optimism Phase


Hello friends,

Welcome back to our ongoing series, “The Digitalization Journey of Drinkizz,” where we share our transformative experiences in adopting new technologies to drive our business forward. In our previous posts, we’ve delved into the early stages of our digitization efforts, exploring our initial forays and the inevitable hesitation that accompanied them. Today, we are excited to discuss a pivotal moment in our journey: the Optimism Phase from 2021. This phase was characterized by our discovery and successful integration of no-code solutions, which revolutionized our IT system and operations.

Embracing no-code solutions

In 2021, Drinkizz made a big change by using no-code solutions in our work processes. We chose this because we understood the many benefits these tools offered. We found that no-code solutions were not only cost-effective and agile in deployment but also required minimal technical skills. This was a game-changer for us, allowing rapid scalability to support our business growth without the burdens typically associated with traditional software development.

The Advantages of no-code solutions

  1. Cost-Effectiveness 
  2. Deployment Agility 
  3. Minimal Technical Skill Requirements 
  4. Scalability 
  5. Reduced Training and Development Time 

No-code solutions applied at Drinkizz

To manage our IT system effectively, we implemented several no-code solutions that enhanced data management, ingestion, security, and backup. Here’s a brief overview of the tools we used:

  1. Knack: Knack served as our unified data management platform, enabling us to create and manage databases with ease. It handled crucial aspects such as R&D, inventory, products, sales, marketing, HR policies, finance, and regulatory operations, ensuring data consistency and accessibility across departments.
  2. Make (formerly Integromat): Make was essential for data integration and automation of business workflows. It connected various apps and systems, facilitating seamless data ingestion and synchronization across our IT ecosystem, including external and internal data sources.
  3. WooCommerce: WooCommerce was used to manage our online store, integrating with our website for e-commerce and point-of-sale (POS) operations. It streamlined sales processes and provided a unified platform for managing orders and customer interactions. Data from WooCommerce was easily and automatically integrated into our no-code database, Knack, to simplify sales processes and operations.
  4. SimpleBackups: SimpleBackups ensured the security and availability of our data in Knack through automated backups and archiving. This no-code tool provided peace of mind by safeguarding our data against loss or corruption.

Why are businesses choosing no-code solutions?

No-code reduces IT costs/budget with more efficient development tools.
  • No hire more developers, or take months and years to finish projects.
  • No need for more time and budget for development tools.
  • Democratic tools that anyone can use with drag and-drop functionality.
Have a more agile and flexible response.
  • Instead of allotting weeks or months to solution development, how about days?
Gain confidence in security, governance and compliance.
  • Security, governance, and compliance are crucial in IT.
  • No-code solutions are purpose-built to meet requirements.

“No-code tools are a major productivity booster for businesses.” According to a recent survey highlighted in Yahoo Finance, 75% of companies reported that no/low-code tools significantly improve their efficiency and reduce development time by over 50%.

“More businesses are adopting no-code solutions to meet growing demands.” The same survey indicates that 64% of businesses have started using no-code tools to handle increased workloads without needing to expand their IT teams. “No-code tools also contribute to higher satisfaction among developers.” 68% of developers expressed that using no-code platforms makes their job easier and allows them to focus on more complex tasks

Navigating the challenges

While the benefits of no-code solutions are clear, it’s essential to choose the right platform that aligns with your business needs and growth trajectory. Many businesses face challenges in this area, often making mistakes that lead to slowdowns. Here are some insights to help you navigate this critical decision:

  1. Understand your requirements: Before selecting a no-code platform, thoroughly assess your business needs. Ensure the platform can address your current requirements and scale as your business grows.
  2. Evaluate flexibility and integration: Choose a platform that offers flexibility and seamless integration with your existing systems. This will help avoid disruptions and ensure a smooth transition.
  3. Focus on user experience: The platform should be user-friendly and accessible to all team members. A steep learning curve can negate the benefits of no-code solutions.
  4. Adopt effective methodologies: Implementing a no-code solution should be accompanied by effective methodologies and strategies. This includes setting clear goals, monitoring progress, and being open to iterative improvements.
  5. Avoid common pitfalls: Learn from our experiences during the hesitation phase. Avoid underestimating the importance of training, overloading your system with unnecessary features, and neglecting the need for ongoing support and maintenance.

So, What Next?

As we look ahead to the final phase of our journey, “The Future,” we will explore the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) to further accelerate our IT system creation and enhance team productivity. AI represents the next frontier in our digitization efforts, promising even greater efficiencies and innovations.

Stay tuned for our next blog post, where we’ll dive into how AI is shaping the future of Drinkizz and how your business can leverage these cutting-edge technologies to stay ahead in a competitive market.
