Using the OCR control, end-users can convert the images into text using Optical Character Recognition and save time and increase accuracy in data entry.

SSO Implementation for Swift Users

With this release, users will now be able to authenticate using their Microsoft account through Azure AD. This means that you can now access the Swift apps and portals with your Microsoft account, eliminating the need to remember multiple login credentials. Instead, you can simply log in using your Microsoft account, and you’ll be granted access to all of the features and functionality you need.

To get started, simply click on the “Click here” option, located right after the “Sign in with SSO” button. Then, you’ll need to authenticate your Microsoft account.

Expanded MDM: Manage Devices with Ease

With this release, users now have the ability to manage and monitor all of your company’s devices from one centralized location. Whether your team is working on desktops or mobile devices, you’ll be able to ensure that only the users with authorized devices are able to access Swift apps and portals while adhering to your company’s security policies

More Robust Offline Capability

With this release of Swift, Users can now use the Swift app even if they don’t have internet connectivity. Both the applications and data are cached for offline use. You can not only navigate through the cached data in the offline mode but can also perform offline transactions.

All offline transactions get queued to be synchronized on the First Come First Serve basis. When the device finds connectivity, it automatically marks the user back online and provides the ability to sync the transactions.

Mobile App Branding

Grid-Level Media Support

With this release, users are now able to access media object support at the custom grid level. This means that users can now view and interact with media objects, such as images, videos, and attachments, directly within the custom grid interface.

When accessing a record in the custom grid, users will see a paperclip icon, which they can click to view all associated media objects for that specific record. This includes the ability to view images, videos, and other attachments, as well as any URLs that have been attached to the record.

Every account and server environment is now encrypted, safeguarding internal transactions and securing environment files. Benefit from end-to-end encryption for complete peace of mind, ensuring maximum security throughout your data’s journey on our platform.

Enhanced Functionality in Editable Grid: Search Filters and Checkbox Integration

With this latest release, users can enjoy the convenience of search filters in the editable grid, simplifying the process of finding specific records. By choosing specific columns as searchable, users can easily access them as search fields in the end user application, adding a valuable layer to grid functionality.

Moreover, users can now incorporate a user-friendly checkbox in the editable grid, visible on the screen for easy interaction. This checkbox allows users to effortlessly select or deselect it, sending corresponding values to the AIS.

How Swift provides the game-changing capability?

Most low-code, no-code platforms evolved as the next-phase of the original development tools, built a decade or two ago, and still follow the same development mindset in their DNA. Although they’ve tried their best to make them easy for the business analysts and the users, majority have fallen short.

To bring about the real paradigm shift and benefits of a low-code/no-code platform, a grounds-up rethinking was required to work at a meta-data level, and incorporate at the core of the architecture, the latest and greatest advancements in web and mobile technologies, integration, security, analytics and cloud-based server frameworks.
