Softr vs.

Softr and Client Portal are often used to build user-friendly dashboards which help streamline client communications and collaborations.

Alternatively, Softr offers more robust functionality, features, and customization — plus 24/7 chat support.

“The design capabilities are incredible. I'm usually a 'template' girl, but the drag-and-drop blocks are so easy-to-use and versatile. The design capabilities are endless!
