Undaku, founded by three youngsters from Kerala, means ‘create’ in Malayalam. They have come out with a no-code application development platform with tools to help SaaS startups and small companies to create applications to run and manage their operations to help them steer their business to growth and profitability.
The beauty of this SaaS Builder Platform is in its
This is a no-code development tool using which applications can be developed by its drag-and-drop capabilities in an agile fashion thus saving cost and time. There is no need for high-cost software coders or developers to develop and deploy applications in a cloud environment.
Undaku’s vision is to help the tech startup ecosystem with opportunities to grow their topline and enhance the bottom line. How? Through these three models of delivery. Here is how:
The Undaku Builder Platform enabling startups and small companies to develop applications. This is without much initial investment for development and infrastructure and more through the OPEX route because you don’t need expensive resources to develop applications using the drag and drop feature of Undaku tools. Here, the recurring expenses are mostly for the usage of cloud environments on an on-demand basis.
SaaS development startups acting as Resellers/Channel Partners can use this no-code platform to develop SaaS applications for other startups to run their business. It is a win-win for both SaaS development companies as well as startup companies that need applications quickly at low operating costs and TCO. Here, the end-user companies will pay Undaku or the development company for the usage in the SaaS model.

In both the above models, the common beneficiaries are the end-user companies.
It is not necessary for the SaaS developer and the end-user companies to be startups. They can be existing or emerging enterprises. Though Undaku Builder platform is envisaged keeping startups as their end-user customers in mind because of the latter’s
need for less expensive, faster, and less complex requirements, it can be also used by bigger enterprises equally effectively.
This is not to say that the no-code development platform is a brand new concept and there are no similar products currently available in the market. There are many such platforms and tools out there in the market but they are mostly meant for and targeted at large end-user customers and are expensive. In that sense, Undaku SaaS Builder is a new idea conceived to enable startups to grow and expand their business resulting in a situation where all the players benefitting.
With nearly 1,000 funded SaaS startups and ten unicorns (those with a valuation of over $1 billion) dotting the space, the SaaS ecosystem collectively generates about $2-3 billion in annual revenue and employs nearly 40,000 people.
“The Indian SaaS space has the potential to create $1 trillion in value and nearly five lakh jobs by 2030,” according to the report ‘Shaping India’s SaaS Landscape’ The report was released recently by SaaSBOOMi, Asia’s largest community of SaaS founders and product builders. SaaSBOOMi, in association with McKinsey and The company, has researched the prospects for the SaaS companies in the country
