valence software

Build experiences that users love.

Don’t settle for screen-scraping and browser-enabling. Valence creates rich, meaningful experiences that help users work more efficiently to accelerate operations and advance your business.


Valence is Device-Independent

Valence apps run on a single page in a web browser, or as an app in iOS or Android mobile devices. Our development tools bring the most advanced web capabilities to your apps.

Valence is Truly Modern

Free your users from old-fashioned, unproductive interfaces. The Valence UI is designed with an advanced JavaScript framework ideally suited for developing modern, enterprise-class business applications.

Valence is Integrated

With Valence, your IBM i application development expertise supports truly modern applications. Actions performed on the browser-based graphical user interface trigger calls to web services written in RPG or Node.js.

Valence is Simple and Powerful

The design methodology for creating Valence apps on IBM i is similar to that of the most powerful modern apps created on non-IBM i systems.

Hear what our customers are saying.

“We obviously adore those guys.” “They’re very, very good.” “It seems like their desire is to exceed our expectations. Every single time. I’m not kidding you.” We're proud to hear feedback like that. Read and watch what our customers are saying about working with CNX.

CNX provides next-level solutions. And for companies like mine who are sitting on 20-year-old ERP software, they made it real easy for us to modernize and breathe life into that system.

Valence Nitro App Builder really opens up the door because you don’t even have to be a programmer to develop apps. And if you are a programmer, you will be able to create very productive apps right out of the box. I was able to take our ship-to addresses for all of our customers all over the world and display them on Google Maps. It took 10 minutes. That’s how powerful that sucker is.
