Will we get buy-in from our employees once we install Cora?
Cora has been designed and built as a no code low code platform to ensure immediate buy-in from all your employees. This means that it gets configured twice.
First, we take the out-of-the-box Cora and configure it for you so that it does exactly what you need it to.
Then, once you ‘go live’, the users that you’ve given access to will quickly and easily configure it for themselves, by taking the wide range of templates that are available to them, and dragging and dropping whichever features and elements they require for that particular functionality.
