“We are very pleased to have been engaged in this innovative approach to building user centric education IT assets in a shared services mode for the K-12 market. This allows us to demonstrate SmartGuide’s ability to quickly prototype, create, manage & deploy solutions seamlessly to the RIC’s secure environment” reports Philippe Lecoq, President and CEO.

All applications built with SmartGuide can also seamlessly be deployed at a later date in a secure private Cloud computing environment. As demand for Cloud computing is exploding, organizations seek to expand the impact of IT to deliver new and innovative services while realizing significant economies of scale.

About Alphinat

At Alphinat, we are driven by the passion to make application development easy for everyone. It always struck us as odd that the people with the vision of how a finished application should look and behave would only be involved at the start of the process. After all, what better way to ensure a favourable outcome than to provide those closest to an application’s end-users with a vested interest in its success throughout its development?

That’s why we bring you new ways to empower the right people at the right time in the application development process. At the same time, we’re constantly working to reduce the need to code in order to make application development and maintenance simpler and less error-prone.

So whether you choose to develop your applications with the help of our low-code platform SmartGuide®, kickstart your project using one of our pre-built apps or engage us or one of our partners to do the work for you, we’re here to help you deploy better applications in record time. Visit for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
