What is Thincloud?

image description

Thincloud apps are web-based applications that streamline operations and manage your business. A primary advantage is the ability to integrate offline, or software-as-a-service systems, into an easy-to-use interface that allows transactional communication between customers, employees, owners, vendors and partners.

"The New Leaders know how to build web applications. They have an amazing eye for usability and can take a concept and develop it into something really compelling, in an amazingly short amount of time." — Jon Walker, Founder & CTO of AppFolio

Built for Ruby on Rails

image description

Ruby on Rails is the premier, agile-development language and excels at delivering powerful solutions with minimal code. By leveraging this framework, we are able to convert all Thincloud applications to plugins. Each plugin is updated over time to increase performance and enhance functionality. Our platform is a Ruby on Rails application comprised of plugins in limitless configurations, allowing us to create a solution that is custom tailored to your needs.

Web-Based Estimate Process

Once we understand your needs, we will create a web-based estimate that outlines the approach we recommend and the amount of time your project will require from our team. This allows us to provide an estimate quickly and allows you to review it online to make sure that it meets your requirements. We will make adjustments based on your feedback to tailor the scope of the project to fit your budget and goals.

Building a Thincloud for your business.

Thincloud provides powerful solutions to what seem to be complex business problems. Thincloud applications provide real-time reporting and accounting so you can make better day-to-day decisions about your business. Thincloud can also form the foundation of a minimum viable product, eliminating the need to start from scratch. Our Thincloud platform brings along a host of technologies so you can be up and running quickly without having to consider the basics such as user account management, server provisioning, document hosting or transaction processing.

Thincloud Deployment

New Leaders can quickly deploy a new Thincloud instance within minutes. The basic installation provides user accounts, document hosting and an API for customization. We've custom tailored the installation to meet New Leaders cloud computing infrastructure perfectly, meaning you won't be responsible for maintaining a complex hosting environment.

Customization

We have designed the Thincloud framework around small, single-purpose applications we call plugins. By combining different plugins, you can solve a plethora of problems. For example, we can combine the ability to create online estimates, take payment through your website, and maintain a checkbook ledger. Together, these plugins create a powerful workflow for generating and accounting for revenue. Since all of the applications are web-based, they can be collaboratively shared with colleagues. Every business works a little differently, and it is our goal to adjust the context of our applications and features so they can support those needs unlike one-size-fits-all solutions. We also will work with you to define, design and develop custom made-to-order modules that solve your unique problems. These applications can be as simple as a modification to an existing plugin the development of a new one from scratch.

Integrate with third party APIs

Have a legacy solution you can’t leave behind? Want to incorporate a solution into which you’ve already invested? No problem. We have worked with many different APIs such as Basecamp, Google Apps and Salesforce to ensure that you can integrate them into your Thincloud application. If you'd rather migrate wholesale to your own systems, we’ll even help migrate your current data from those services into your new Thincloud environment.

Multi-Platform

Thincloud is web-based, which allows you to access your operations over the web using any major web browser on either Mac OSX or Windows. Customers who use Macs see the added benefits of using Webkit, built-in web browser software that can run independently of Safari and provides a desktop-software-like experience. This technology is known as Site Specific Browsing (SSB). Thincloud applications are built using web standards to ensure that your systems are accessible from any major web browser — Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Webkit, Opera and Google Chrome. Web-based computing can provide a streamlined collaborative workflow that keeps you and your team informed with the most up-to-date communications and information at all times.
