Get Started with Reify
6 Reify Designer Accounts
Anything you build in Reify, you can deploy on your own, even as just pieces of a larger application! Find out more about Hybrid Development, the new development process that changes everything.
Make it easy for yourself, and let us handle your deployment.
No Lock-in - You're Safe with Us
Reify is not like other Low Code platforms - there's no lock-in. If you want to, you can host your application yourself. In fact, we make it easy.
That means our fees for managed deployments will always be reasonable. With other vendors, some minor change to your application can kick you into the more expensive "Enterprise" tier and suddenly your costs quadruple! We don't play those games. We need to win your business with managed deployment services that are worth what you pay, and we know it! So rest easy, you're safe with us.
Reify OnSite is like having your own private Reify.com behind your firewall. Your data and designs never leave your premises! Reify OnSite includes unlimited, behind-the-firewall deployment to compatible private clouds, or you can simply deploy on the Reify OnSite server itself.
Reify OnSite allows you to customize the Reify interface itself. You can add connectors to internal data services, add new features in the design environment, customize how deployment works - anything! Reify is just a component of the underlying SmartClient platform, so everything you learn about extending and customizing Reify applications also teaches you how to customize Reify itself!
Reify OnSite's pricing is based on a per-designer-seat basis, with no additional costs for deployment. Company-wide or division-wide licenses with unlimited seats are also available, still priced based on the anticipated number of designers.
However, if you are part of a corporate design & development team, please don't ask to buy just one seat at a time. Reify is a tool for collaboration between designers and developers, so buying one seat doesn't really make sense. We want you to enjoy collaborating and be free to invite more people into the process, rather than repeatedly going back to your Purchasing department for another seat, or worse, trying to share accounts (not allowed!).
But if you are truly a one-person (or two-, or three-person) company, then we'd love to work with you to find pricing that fits - just contact us and let us know a bit about your company and what you're up to!
To access tutorials in Reify, just click on the graduation cap icon at the bottom of the screen. This opens the Learning Center, which allows you to search available tutorials & shows you which you have already completed. Make sure to focus on the starred Core Curriculum tutorials, which are the best way to learn Reify quickly.
Our extensive set of learn-by-doing tutorials makes Reify by far the easiest Low Code system to learn.
Having said that, Reify is not just a tool, it's a new & better process. In the same way that "DevOps" shook up the boundary between development and operations, Reify shakes up the boundary between design and development.
The potential benefits of this new process are enormous, but there are pitfalls (just as there were with DevOps adoption). For this reason, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of the Reify training program, or better yet, our Reify Pilot program.
But please don't show off things that you rapidly built with Reify, and then go off and rebuild it (veeerrryy slowly) in another technology.
We know how easy that is to do, with disposable email accounts, etc, so all we're going to say is: stay classy.
Note that Reify is really priced per team and not per seat. The point of Reify is collaboration, so you always want at least a few unused accounts sitting around, to add new collaborators!
We also offer site-wide, division-wide, and company-wide licensing, which you will definitely want when you see what Reify can do! But we do recommend that you start small.
If our pricing is a problem for you, we can get you discounts via bundling with other services (like training and support) or pre-purchasing for many months or years, but trying to minimize seats is not a good way to get to a workable price.
Rest assured: the Reify team has a long history of working on projects with strict regulatory requirements (HIPAA, DFARS, PCI DSS, GLBA, etc). We have the vetted staff and processes in place to coordinate with your team.

Deployment pricing is on a “usage plus” basis: costs are based on industry rates for cloud deployment,
plus reasonable fees for the deployment management services we are providing. Since you can always
export your application and deploy it on your own, you know you’ll never be stuck with unreasonable
pricing! In particular, we will never charge you per-end-user fees.
The Deployment Management Console is included in all deployments and provides:
- User management and authentication services
- Direct administrative access to the DataSources used by the deployed application (search, sort, filter, edit, delete)
- The ability to export and import data to underlying tables
- Audit records: detailed records of changes made by users
- Usage data: detailed activity of users in the application
- Error logs: detailed data about errors users encounter

To make it simple - anyone who uses Reify to build applications or parts of applications needs to have a paid Reify account.
People who are only users of applications that were created with Reify do not need to have a Reify account. For example, an HR rep using an HR application built with Reify would not need an account. There is no limit to the number of people that can use the applications that you build with Reify.
Developers with SmartClient/SmartGWT licenses can help people with Reify accounts to overcome specific problems, however, they are not allowed to build screens using Reify unless they also have a Reify account.
And note that you can get a discount from just committing to multiple years - you don't need to pay upfront.
If you want to use Reify as part of a class, just contact us with a student roster and we will set up academic accounts.
For obvious reasons, the Deploy functionality is not available on student accounts. But if you want it available on an instructor account for demonstration purposes, just ask.
No, just kidding. We keep it in our DB and then we charge huge fees to get it back.
No, not that either. You can reinstate your Reify account at any time, and we promise to hang onto your work for at least a year in case you need it, but we do have to purge old data eventually.
We will send you an email if your data is about to be permanently wiped.
Remember you can also export at any time, so that's a way to hang onto your work if you are intentionally ending your Reify account.
