We believe there is better way of creating your business application. With our agile platform it is easy to build professional business applications at the speed of light, highly adjustable, open and secure on any device (pc tablet mobile).
We're offering you a full fledged user friendly model driven experience. It’s the way coding should be: most of the plumbing has already been done for you and time to market is reduced to weeks rather than months. And all with maximum flexibility for the developer
We're following the design guides used by Microsoft, Google and Apple because your software application must be as easy to navigate and use as possible. The difference between a good app and a bad app is usually the quality of its user experience (UX). A good UX is what separates successful apps from unsuccessful ones.
We've created a platform for power up your line of business application, including data storage, user authentication and role-based access, configurable workflow engine, import/export data mapping, MS Excel export, reporting, full API support. Its all there and we're waiting for your business processes.
We're a team of highly experienced Microsoft-certified developers and consultants located in Leiden, The Netherlands. We are supported by a Board of Advisors. In 2009 42windmills was launched. Since then, many customers have migrated their legacy systems or developed completely new web applications with our platform.
Creating a new software application raises a lot of questions: what architecture do I need? How much flexibility is required in the future? How about security and role management? How do I connect to other systems? Most questions are not about the application-to-be but about the ‘plumbery code’. The 42windmills platform has all the plumbery code already in place. Start thinking about the functionality you need because this is all you should worry about.
Many companies deal with existing 'applications' - like MS Excel, MS Access, FileMaker Pro or FoxPro - being used for critical processes. Oh no, we have seen this many times. These applications worked fine at first, but the lack of good multi-user functionality, availability anywhere, security and high costs on maintenance makes companies want to migrate. But this sounds easier than it is. Usually documentation is poor and maintenance is done by a single person (or no-one…).
Simple applications can be made without being a developer, the more complex ones can be generated for the greater part and enhanced by a 42 developer with custom logic. 42windmills is unique in generating all layers a webbased business application requires: from MS SQL-database, data access layer, all the way to the user interface. The end-result is not code but a real working application. By using extension points we can extend and further customize your application.
Whether you want your application in a public or private cloud, applications developed by 42windmills can be hosted with us, at your own site, with Windows Azure® or on any webserver. Zero server hassle anymore. Sit back and relax while our experts take care of hosting your 42windmills application. 42windmills offers an unique 1-click deployment to any server. This can be a cloud environment, your own on-premise server or a hosted server.

Every 42windmills application has an integrated workflow engine. You can define your own business rules to automate repetitive processes.
Out of the box you'll have a role-based security, access is not granted to individual users, only to security roles. Users are assigned to roles. A user who is assigned to a security role has access to the set of privileges that is associated with that role. A user who is not assigned to any role has no privileges. Every modification of your data is logged.
Your application isn't a stand-alone application anymore. These days you'll need the means to integrate with other software systems you're doing business with. It is not surprising, then, that one of the most important uses of APIs is to provide the foundation for "becoming a platform" – in other words, we provide exact integration points for customers, suppliers, distributors and integrators.
All your existing data can be imported, even multiple times using self-defined datamaps. Every import can be reviewed and, if necessary, deleted again. Create your own data views and export them easily to MS Exel.
Should you need a responsive website or a mobile app? Well, the answer is that you should do both – if you can. Many businesses end up choosing between the two for budgeting reasons, but with our 42platfom available, that’s probably not necessary.
