Offering Glide as an Alternative

The last thing you want to think about, especially at this time of year, is having to migrate your internal tools to a new platform. If you’ve built your tools on, the announcement that they are sunsetting their services at the end of December likely throws a wrench into a lot of your important workflows. 

If you’re looking for a new home for the business apps you rely on, we hope Glide’s easy-to-use interface and powerful workflow support can help get you back to work with minimal disruption.

Easily migrate from to Glide

Migrating your essential apps to Glide is a quick and easy process with the support of our no code platform, extensive data sources, and thorough documentation.

Unlike, which required you to use a developer to set up APIs and databases, no code is required to build in Glide at any point. You can begin building today without needing to rely on developers to launch your new apps. 

Glide University has a wealth of resources to get you started, our Docs contain all the technical details you need, and our Community is a great place to ask questions. If your focus is on getting up-and-running as fast as possible, you can also choose to hire a Glide Expert to help you get fully functional on your new platform in no time.

Create mobile apps without extra effort

Glide apps are adaptive by default. When you build software on Glide, it’s automatically built to adapt to whatever device you’re using to access it. Your team will be able to use your apps on their smartphones, tablets, or computers without you having to do any additional work.

Maintain the data sources you rely on

Glide works with the data sources you’re already using to store your business data, such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQL Server, Google Sheets, Airtable, BigQuery, and more. It’s easy to connect them to your Glide app and begin building an intuitive and attractive front end for your software. You can also continue to use the Integrations you rely on, such as Stripe, Hubspot, and Zendesk

Rebuild and continue growing

We understand the headache of switching platforms and offer our resources and community to help you manage the change with minimal pain. We hope you’ll enjoy using Glide once the transition is through. 

We’ve spent the last year building the power of the apps you can build in Glide, including adding AI workflows. We plan to add many more. 

We appreciate how important internal tools are to the success of your business. We hope once you’ve done the hard work of making the switch, Glide’s growth and increasing power can be a silver lining for you, and you can continue to grow your business with our support.

If you’re coming over from, we would like to offer you 20% off your first year on a new Business Plan to help ease your transition. Contact sales to get started.
