Over 5,000 companies use Skipper every day

We have good use of the tool. It simplifies our daily work, saves us time and is simple and intuitive to use.

Thomas Somoen, Try/Apt

Skipper is a stable and easy to use schema designing tool! No documentation, just design and everything is documented!

Siebe Vos, Inform'aid

It saved us a lot of time designing and configuring complex data models. It is impressive to see what this software achieves on its own.

Michael Stoye, ColorGATE

Simply put, for us, Skipper is not just a tool to master, but a mastermind that teaches us the best programming practices.

Can Berkol, Biber Ltd

We use Skipper on our daily basis for ecommerce software development. It lets us visualize at a glance the data models and work on them in a simple and easy way.

Dario Schilman, IDS Soluciones Ecommerce

It simplifies our work because it saves us time. With features added over time like adding behaviors to Propel in Skipper it has become an unmissable tool in our organisation.

Erwin te Bos, aXtion

It is faster and gives less errors to have Skipper create the mapping code instead of writing it myself. Later in the development process I often use the Skipper diagram as a quick reference.

Herman Peeren, Yepr

Skipper is especially helpful in the initial data modeling phase. Exporting the data model and scaffolding makes it really easy to get a first prototype up and running in a matter of minutes.
