Why should you consider using Ruby on Rails?

During several years of the Railwaymen’s presence on the market, we have specialized in the development of web and mobile applications using the advantages of Ruby language and the corresponding framework Ruby on Rails. Our realizations are characterized by functionality through appropriately selected tools and usability, which is confirmed by a wide range of satisfied customers.

Why is Ruby on Rails right for your project?

Ruby on Rails is a framework that is flexible enough to be used for a wide range of projects. Both from small startups to large enterprise applications. It does a great job in implementations that require rapid development, scalability and ease of maintenance. It’s a tool that works well for projects whose requirements change frequently. Moreover, existing applications can be migrated to Ruby on Rails, although in this case the complexity of the process depends on the choice of other technologies. The key is to thoroughly evaluate the migration’s viability and effort level.

Benefits of Using Ruby on Rails in Web Development

Efficiency and effectiveness

The Ruby on Rails framework is characterized by the principle of convention over configuration, which means that developers receive a set of best practices and default settings. The code required for typical tasks does not have a large volume and programming time is much shorter than with similar tools.

Readability and maintainability

The Ruby language behind Rails is distinguished by its elegant yet readable syntax. As a result, there is no problem with code maintenance and it benefits developers’ work on projects. Ruby on Rails’ module-based structure contributes to easy maintenance and long-term scalability.

Security and community audits

Ruby on Rails has a very active community that is eager to share its knowledge with each other while constantly influencing the development of the solution. In addition, it is eagerly involved in security, as evidenced by regular audits to identify and address potential security vulnerabilities. Constant updates and patches protect customer applications from threats.

Convenient integration with databases

RoR is a framework that has no problem at all when it comes to integration with the most popular databases, such as PostgreSQL and MySQL. Moreover, Rails allows connecting to several databases. A big part of this is the prowess of built-in Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) and ActiveRecord tools. In addition, Rails allows applications to handle increased traffic and load due to more servers. Therefore, in addition to facilitated integration, the framework is characterized by efficiency.

The most important is the architecture of the entire solution, where we decide whether to separately spin out the front-end by doing a single page app or undertake a collective integration.

We also take advantage of a large number of additional libraries that implement functionalities like authentication or authorization. In the case of external integrations, we try to do research on new libraries and available solutions for them. During the final stage of Rails development, we take care of the infrastructure. For this, we work with our in-house DevOps team to offer customers professional cloud solutions that are scalable. We have extensive experience in working on AWS (Amazon Web Services) and can offer the support of developers with certified skills in this area.

Our projects that were developed using Ruby on Rails


CostTracker is a cloud-based platform that helps companies save time and money by completely controlling costs in the organization. It is a tool that enables the creation of purchase order databases that can be properly automated. With CostTracker, any purchase order can be easily created, approved, archived and invoiced. This digital process management saves time and is easy to use. The platform makes it possible to track costs in real time in the companies covered by the system.

Hydr was built in response to customers’ invoicing needs.

Hydr has been integrated with as many as 7 external tools which translates into a level of security, credit rating and a guarantee of reliable verification. The software allows a high degree of automation, which allows for less analyst involvement, and so for a lower costs.


Shawarmer App is a bilingual software for FoodTech in the GCC region. The app, supported on iOS and Android operating systems, is used for efficient food ordering with delivery.

Tore Andreas Hansen & Torstein Floden,

CostTracker Founders
Railwaymen team helped us in rebuilding our Mobile applications with strong base. Their professionality made the process very smooth and fast. We did this in very short time even we had a lot of obstacles. Building the base in very professional way and as per the standard with the alignment of the up-to date technology helped us to start another project with them (KIOSK “self-service”) in very short notice and finished it as planned.

Abdulaziz AlMusaireae,

Brand Extension Director, Shawarmer
After speaking with several development agencies, we retained Railwaymen to turn our raw idea into first a clickable prototype for which we could obtain customer feedback, and second, into functioning software. They handled 100% of the design and development. Railwaymen is a first class, high-quality operation which charges reasonable rates and does great work. We are extremely happy with the relationship, and plan to stay with Railwaymen through future versions of the software. Creative design and problem-solving have had the biggest impact on my impression. But the unwavering support and patience of their team is a close second.

Nicola Weedall,

Co-Founder, Hydr

Because in my opinion, it is the most readable and elegant of all backend languages ​​I have come across so far. Programming in it is a lot of fun, and you can create a very clear and extremely readable code in it. Why Ruby on Rails? Because thanks to creating this framework in 2015, it became possible to develop fully independent web applications using the Ruby language.
