What is RailsKits and why do you need it?
RailsKits was recently acquired by Koombea, a web and mobile design and development agency helping both startups and enterprises launch successful products. Because we love using Ruby on Rails for our apps, we have been looking for ways to give back and help developers build their products faster without having to go through the hassle of writing the code from scratch.
This first kit was developed as a software-as-a-service kit gem, a library for Ruby projects, meant to provide app makers like you with an excellent starter pack. It comprises a well-tested recurring billing system with credit card payments, as well as a framework for building membership-based applications, including account signups/upgrades/downgrades, tiered pricing levels with customizable limits, multi-tenant data security in a single database, and more.
One of the hardest things to deal with when getting your idea off the ground is knowing how to validate and read your metrics. That is why our first Rails Kit focuses on software-as-a-service.
Why should you go SaaS?
For starters, it’s an estimated 21 billion dollar market by 2015 (Statspotting).
Some of its benefits include:
– Easier administration
– Automatic updates
– Compatibility (All users have same software version)
– Easier collaboration
– GLOBAL accessibility.
Point is… you don’t need to be a know-it-all to enter your MVP on the market. Follow the advice outlined in this article and you can easily build your app and service product into something successful.
So how exactly can the SaaS Kit Gem help you get your new app off to a running start?
Whether you have an idea for an app, but lack the technical knowledge, or you already have an existing project, but are stuck in the making, then Rails Kits can come to your rescue. Regardless of the phase you find yourself in the development process, this code package can serve as groundwork to get you started. It will help you save time and fill in the missing pieces.
What this means for your MVP is that because you are using a tested, reliable packaged code, you can start focusing on validated learning and gaining valuable insight on what’s working and what’s not for your business idea.
To help you make an informed decision, we recently launched a comprehensive documentation page. Know exactly what our kit offers you, learn how to integrate the code in your process BEFORE you decide on the purchase. This way you are fully aware of all the benefits you receive by the time you start using it. To learn more about Rails Kits, check out our webpage.
