"Quickbase is the easiest platform for non-profit tracking "

What do you like best?

We like to organize the different non-profit and fundraising programs with which we are working. Quickbase aligns all the information of the work in the cloud, so it is easy to share it with volunteers. Actually, it offers 100% visibility to our activity. Its price is only $ 15 per month, and its using SaaS tools is excellent. It also offers good technical assistance, which we can follow up on. Call routing is convenient and highly automated, and has large document storage capacity.

What do you dislike?

Quickbase does not include an email marketing system. This greatly limits the way we share information with volunteers for our campaigns. Importing extensive databases within the platform can cause it to end up collapsing, as it usually exceeds its capacity, and slows down. The sales forecasting tool is also quite slow. Quickbase does not handle accounting, nor does it allow to automate content through social networks.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase is an excellent alternative to all those uncomfortable non-profit and volunteer management platforms. It is highly recommended to automate the management of time and attendance, and to improve supply chains and shipments.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickbase gives us a better tracking of problems and technical support tickets. It helps us to measure the performance of each volunteer, and to organize contracts. It has also served to manage incident reports, and to track the budgets of each activity. The management and monitoring of subsidies has also improved a lot.

"Quickbase is very good for managing non-profit programs "

What do you like best?

With quickbase it has been especially entertaining to manage volunteers for large fundraising projects. We like its price, it costs only $15. It has several functions for the optimization of technical assistance, such as automated call routing and the review and monitoring of customer service tickets, with which we can always keep abreast of the needs of our public.

What do you dislike?

With quickbase there are not enough communication channels with which to work, since it is limited to handling emails and tickets. It does not include any tool for live chat with which you can take better contact with the volunteers and employees of each project. As for the management of human resources, quick base is quite outdated, because we can not review the entire life cycle of each person.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase has collaborated in the systematization of our planning of non-profit activities, and in monitoring the profits of each activity. Thanks to its subsidy system we can better take online applications, and its marketing automation system has helped us to create marketing campaigns, and review their progress from different points of view.

"Quickbase is quite geared towards event management "

What do you like best?

The platform is quite capable of handling business contacts. It's easy to organize them, and since you have a good integration with Microsoft excel, it's easy to import databases into spreadsheets from one platform to the other. It also offers the possibility of managing sales funnels in a personalized way. We are fully satisfied using Quickbase, due to its excellent starting price. It is excellent, and proves to be a good investment in a short time. Quickbase integrates surprisingly well with external platforms through the use of API services. Its open API is excellent, highly recommended for it. It has a very complete customer service support, full of speed when answering all the questions you have. They are quite punctual. The community of followers of Quickbase is quite extensive, and in his majority is about people with desire to help and collaborate with the new users.

What do you dislike?

Quickbase lacks an adequate workflow management system, since it can not review the automation of business processes, nor does it have a graphic editing tool for workflows. Neither allows you to configure them, or configure at least the access controls to these. When it comes to mail marketing campaigns, quickbase does not have much capacity to handle them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We recommend using Quickbase to sales and event organization teams that want to better organize their group work, and their sales funnels. It is also advisable to human resources teams, since it allows to review processes of hiring of personnel, and databases of employees.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickbase is a most effective non-profit management application. Its event tracking processes are fully customizable, and it can handle the product supply chains for events quite well. For example, it allows you to manage shipments, inventories, and schedules of all kinds of sales operations.

"Quickbase is an interesting platform. It is very systematized "

What do you like best?

Its incident report creator is very easy to customize. The Quickbase platform is generally used to manage RFI, and to update customer databases. In relation to supply chains, with quickbase we can handle shipments, organize warehouses and inventories, and do merchandise order treatments. This service has been the best solution for the management of our non-profit programs. The platform is very intuitive and easy to use. It has fascinated us. If you have any problem with the platform you can easily go to their technical support service. They work on a regular schedule, and they respond very quickly. We thought that the price contract is beneficial for us, since the payment plans are quite flexible with the users. In addition, they are economical. We have achieved a high level of satisfaction with our experience of using Quickbase. It has been very easy to use, and its price shows that it is a positive investment.

What do you dislike?

You can not administer providers, nor transport. Workflows are not configurable (you can not even choose access permissions). It does not have a progress system based on tasks to be performed, which means that the work can not be fully organized. Does not allow to review potential customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase is a stable platform, very convenient for the realization of profit and loss reports, and for the administration of sales funnels. It is excellent for the management of members of non-profit organizations, and to improve the technical attention given to customers. It can even do call routing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its multichannel system has been very advantageous to improve communication with our customers, and therefore the automation of our sales force. We think it's excellent to be able to handle payment commissions, and to be able to make sales forecasts, and make budget follow-ups.

"Quickbase is the one to handle accounting"

What do you like best?

The integrated tool to keep the accounts of non-profit organizations has seemed excellent, very didactic. We really like your billing management system, as these are easy to customize. We like your sales funnel manager, and your ability to import contact databases using spreadsheets. Quickbase is a good platform to handle RFI and shipments, and to handle online applications, in the case of grants.

What do you dislike?

We do not like your supply chain management tools, as in the case of your supplier and transport manager. It does not have an adequate integrated CRM with enough capacity to handle prospecting tools. Its mobile access is slow, and tends to close. Your list of tasks does not allow you to configure the view of them. Does not have integrated chat.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase is a highly recommended software if what you want is to monitor work costs, or simply monitor social networks, thanks to its good integration capacity with them. We are satisfied with quickbase, we recommend it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quickbase is an excellent service, which has helped us a lot with the management of our fundraising events, and with our volunteer management (to communicate with them, mainly). Its technical assistance management is very advantageous to handle interactions with customers, and to monitor support tickets.

"Manage project from the cloud"

What do you like best?

What I like most about QuickBase is the great capacity it has to store data and its configuration to cover the needs of your company, you can make customized reports and save them in spreadsheet format, and your customer service is a great help for Any doubt that comes your way.

What do you dislike?

Its price seems costly, and if you "integrate" some other feature increases and if you increase your users too, some features have an advanced language a bit difficult and cumbersome, the technical service is always ready, but you should even have a specialized employee it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

QuickBase can represent a great solution for Project Managers, construction and maintenance companies like the one that currently lend my management service, its platform has excellent functions and will provide everything you need to progress, solve and market your company among the best .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With QuickBase no data is lost, we had many problems in the past with that point, and due to the characteristics which we understand and execute as: creating applications from scratch and integrating them into the system and beyond the basics has an incredible functionality.

"The base for a quick good working..."

What do you like best?

The connectivity with others app and software we use at the enterprise is just perfect to synchronize all the data to create really useful info into the Quick Base. The easy way to create forms, reports and many types of charts is pretty well. . . The way of presenting the info is good.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the first time I did a relationship, but you can resolve that issue studying a little. . . There's missing a Quick Base manual for amateur and of course, for experts. . . It's been a long learning way to have and we have now, and it's not finished yet, so I hope that someone can do this manuals to improve the very first experience for the users.

They also need to create anchors on the tabs, so you can redirect directly to an specific tab of an specific form. . .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I didn't like it at first cause I was only a user, but now, I am making my own app for the my company. Is so useful if you know how to take the maximum advantage. The Quick Base people is always offering training and certifications. So, it is possible to became and expert if you want to. . .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connecting the accounting software and the control project software with Quick Base let us use the earned value method, so we can have a pretty certain projection (on the go), of how the well the project is and will be in terms of cost and time. . .

"Quick Base is the Solution to your Business Issues"

What do you like best?

I like that Quick Base is a no-code app building platform. Its gives the chance for non-IT people to build apps to solve their complex business problems. We are able to collaborate across departments, locations, and even with external people. It gives us measurable goals and allows us to rely on documented information, rather than having information stored in someone's brain or on their hard drive, which is inaccessible to others. I'm also very impressed with their customer support. We have a 2 hour service agreement, but they have never taken even close to two hours to answer and solve my issue.

What do you dislike?

Quick Base does not currently have a geo-location function. They are limited on their maps by street addresses. This is a minor issue though. Also, we are unable to upload more than one document at a time.

Overall, there are very few problems with this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quick Base is constantly looking for ways to improve their product. Their support is incredible, answering questions quickly and efficiently. If you are looking for a solution to business collaboration needs, Quick Base is an awesome option.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to collaborate across teams and departments to plan projects and work together. There have been numerous benefits including: measurable goals for management, increased communication with employees at remote locations, historical information repository, project lead transfer of information. We had an employee leave suddenly and because we were using Quick Base, information was able to be transferred to his replacement with ease.

"Awesome program that can be used for just about any business service."

What do you like best?

I love that Quick Base is fully customizable for any business application that I need it for. I was introduced to the program but a colleague in a different department to use to replace our database of Alumni in Microsoft Access. Once I saw everything it could after attending Empower 2018, I was hooked and began brainstorming about other business projects that it can help with. I wear many hats in my department and I have been able to streamline my many different responsibilities and make my job a lot less stressful and less paperwork. I was that I had heard about Quick Base sooner.

What do you dislike?

Not sure if there is a way to do it now (I've only been working with Quick Base for 2 months) or if they are working on them now but I would like to see a way to track via Geo Location on a mobile device so that we can track Alumni involvement at our events nationwide.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick Base streamlines so much. I have solved reporting for Research poster requests, Image Releases for photography and videography, recruitment information requests and I am still working on many others.

"Quick Base will revolutionize your business processes!!"

What do you like best?

Quick Base is fully customizable for each individual user. This has allowed our team to create useful, dynamic tools that suit the needs of our end users. I love that I can create solutions for our business without knowing how to code, and the customer service is outstanding!

What do you dislike?

I wish the reporting was more powerful (and this is something that Quick Base is working on). The ability to add trend lines and weighted averages to reports would be very helpful to our end users. Currently, we still have to report on this in Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are using Excel or paper processes anywhere in your business, I urge you to reach out to a Quick Base customer representative today!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to standardize and streamline our Quality Control process in our Engineering department by building an app to track this information and report on it. Previously, the different groups/project managers were all tracking QC differently (using spreadsheets, paper processes, or not tracking it formally at all. Now the management teams can monitor project health by being able to identify problem areas and provide additional training for our production teams.

"Change the way you think about data management"

What do you like best?

Quick Base's new motto is "Do What Matters." That is exactly what they've done for us - they've allowed us to implement smart business solutions so that we can spend more time focused on growing our business and delighting our customers.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see more robust reporting capabilities, which is on Quick Base's roadmap. My users are interested in adding trendlines and being able to easily calculate weighted averages.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve problems across the company, using Quick Base in multiple ways. We manage project milestones and workflow, manage travel information, send out user evaluations to get feedback on how to make Quick Base better for our users, provide data to our managers for at-a-glance project health, and many other use cases. Quick Base has given us an unprecedented amount of visibility into our data that we could have never imagined.

"Low code Soultion for all business needs"

What do you like best?

Quickbase is very easy to learn, The company provides a very strong online library of training videos, Webinars and in person training opportunities, to get your development team up to speed quickly

What do you dislike?

Coming from a traditional database background I find that the table relationship model is a little weak.

It is difficult to reference. The lack of a coding module makes custom procedures difficult to create

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase is best in class for low code online data management. I have tried many other solutions and Quickbase is far superior to any thing else out there

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

our primary use current is work flow man agent we have work groups in 37 states all needing to utilize and share data the online aspect of this platform allows us to share in a way that inside databases cant provide

"Quickbase is an interesting platform for managing non-profit"

What do you like best?

We believe that Quickbase is very good at improving the automation of sales forces, based on its excellent manager of communication channels, potential customers, and marketing campaigns. Freshmarketer allows you to handle calls, forecast sales, and track tickets and problems (has several Help desk tools). We also liked your automated routing for technical assistance, and that allows you to manage donor information.

What do you dislike?

We do not like its creator of incident reports for RFI management and merchandise shipments. We do not like your tracking of budgets and labor costs. We also do not like its commission manager for clients, since it does not categorize them according to pre-established filters. We do not like your email integration because it is slow with the majority of platforms that we attach to your system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quickbase is recommended first hand to manage memberships within organizations, as well as to handle quotes, donors and volunteers within them. We find it quite useful to review the life cycles of each employee within that organization, and to follow up on job interviews.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Quickbase we have been able to resolve a lot our change orders, and our recommendation follow-ups. It has also been useful to keep us in better contact with our clients, since it is easier to manage databases of them. It is also good for the management of non-profit organizations.

"Quick Base has revolutionized our data storage, replacing a lot of scattered spreadsheets"

What do you like best?

Quick Base allows us to develop our system databases over time, making changes and improvements as users communicate their experiences and needs. Quick Base continues to provide improvements and enhancements that make the developing of the apps easier and resulting in a better experience for the end users.

What do you dislike?

Not having enough control over the screen forms and the complexity of the form design, all the fields are listed vertically in the design side even though the fields are arranged in rows.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great citizen development software. It does require time and effort to design what you want to get out of the program but if you invest the time to understand your processes and how to design the features within Quick Base, the software will provide the results you are expecting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving a few problems. First of all, we are using Quick Base to track all our project management and customer data related to our solar installations. Instead of having various spreadsheet spread through out the company, some of which were different for each branch even though the data within each spreadsheet were essentially the same. We are also using to track our IT assets, our vehicles with driver assignments and maintenance. We also use it as a knowledge-base of municipality info.

"Terrible customer experience, worth it if you never need to contact Intuit"

What do you like best?

The reporting was very well built in Quickbase and easy to use. The system is built pretty intuitively and makes creating an app pretty easy for a novice to jump in and build something quick for your company.

What do you dislike?

The customer service is terrible. Twice I've requested communication and didn't receive anything back for 30-60 days later. The rep replied back "did you still need help with this?" - it's a joke of customer service. Their licensing model is terrible as well. Doesn't take into account if you have a business where you onboard 50+ reps.

The customer service is so atrocious I can't believe this company can still have the rating it has currently.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you require 0 support, this service can work for you. If you require any interaction with their customer support - good luck.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building a CRM that manages both the sales cycle and the install cycle for customers. We also want it to work with some customer facing side of things. Has notifications that send to customers based on a certain criteria set in the database.

"Great no-code/low-code platform"

What do you like best?

It is very simple and fast to get started with creating an application for your business needs. A person without any programming language can quickly learn enough to create their first application and learn more along the way to make it better every single day.

What do you dislike?

If you want to extend the provided functionalities, you will need to inject your own code. The code you inject won't be running on the back-end, because even the admins won't have access to the real back-end so you end up have to use the front-end code, most likely by injecting Javascript.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try to build a simple yet fully functional application in Quick Base platform. You will be shocked at how little time it takes!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can quickly have an application up and running, and be able to make real time changes. It can be used as proof of concept and/or mature it into a production application. It is also easy to make changes on the fly, there can be no delay from development to production.

"We use QB for all our internal office project management."

What do you like best?

For me I like QuickBase because it is a full project management software. It has all your invoicing buttons such as PO's, Payables, Invoice status etc... We also use it as our internal ticketing system to know which stores we are visiting for repairs.

What do you dislike?

There's not really much I dislike at all. Everything is very customizable so anytime there was a feature I could have used QuickBase usually had it available in code.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try! If you're using many other platforms or software for different aspects of your business I would recommend trying out QuickBase. It's very nice to have everything consolidated into 1 app. Very customizable so you can get the look and feel that you desire.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's beneficial because it's a one stop solution for us. Customers send us a ticket, we create it in the system, we track it in the system, we can assign reps to it, we can close it out, create the invoice and anything else all with this one program.

"Quickbase for all "

What do you like best?

We use quick base for literally EVERYTHING for our company. I am literally in quick base for my entire work day. We this for everything from implementations to client support. We use this to make "cards" for our development team and everything being in one place is AMAZING!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there is a lack of things we can do on our dev ops board, but that is expected because its not really meant to be a true kan ban board. But overall we love this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely recommend to use for all purposes of a company. We use it for billing notes, contracts, client lists, etc.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business benefits are HUGE. Since majority of the people in our company have access to the quickbase system, they can see notes for everything for our clients processes. That way, our client management team has all eyes on what's going on.

"As powerful or weak a solution as you want it to be"

What do you like best?

I enjoy that this product is extremely flexible and can be tailored to meet just about any business need that needs capturing, tracking or reporting.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that this product seems to be primarily focused on mature products/projects with agile methodology. It becomes a huge time suck to set up 1-off or maintenance tasks for myself or other people. The amount of setup/investment needed is quite extensive and that setup can feel very restrictive if the work/project mix changes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you have the initial buy-in and requirements for the initial version of the application you would like to build within QuickBase before committing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This could be our specific deployment, but I feel like we are trying to solve a lot of or all of our problems using one tool: Sales/Lead tracking, Project Management, Product Management, Reporting, Time Tracking and Accounting. While we are realizing some benefits in all of these areas, I don't feel like the tool excels at any of them in particular.

"Easy to use & efficient"

What do you like best?

For the projects app, I like the ease of creating reports. You can customize them to do pretty much anything you need them to do.

What do you dislike?

Fixing mistakes is a bit of a pain since every entry is time stamped and you are not able to edit. I understand the need for that but it would be nice if that was an optional feature.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great, easy way to keep accounts organized. I would say I'd like to be able to customize it a bit more but it could also be that we just haven't taken the time to figure out how to do that. The reporting is my favorite feature. For my job, it is imperative and the level that you can customize the reports to fit exactly what you need is something I haven't been able to find in other platforms.

"Platform user friendly, many apps are confusing."

What do you like best?

I like that you can go from app to app easily, and it is a platform that is compatible with many different applications.

What do you dislike?

The format for many of the applications within quickbase are confusing to use, and not very intuitive. Field and Contact organizer have a lot of hoops to jump through and isn't totally clear how they operate. Movement builder seems to glitch a lot/people's applications don't always show up for me.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to organize contacts and interactions, and also for recruitment. For recruitment it is nice to be able to track applicants and where they are in the process. And it's a good location for storing all contacts.

"The best low-code solution I have tried, but lacks an international language protocol"

What do you like best?

Quickbase is an easily learning and trustworthy low-code platform for development of applications. Quickbase provides learning material and has a wide base of users that publish solutions for daily problems in blogs and in youtube. They have also a prompt support.

What do you dislike?

Lacks of an international language protocol, therefore, all the data using portuguese, french and spanish caracters like: ç, è, é, ã etc will be messed when you try to sync data between tables and gmail. The lack of an affordable customer portal is something that really bother us: if your company would like to provide access to your customers/clients in a controled area (with login and password) Quickbase will charge you 15 ou 25 dolars for every user (even if they are only view users).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Like many others plataforms you can try before buying. If you are looking for a Low-code development, you have to consider Quickbase. Brazilians, portuguese, spanish and french fellows: you will face problems with non-english caracters (like ç, é, ã etc.).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using Quickbase for more than six months and have developed it so far: a contact database for our company, a CRM for our sales team and an application for control and verification of electric bills, which also provides efficiency indicators. We also create processes (BPM) to make our applications work together and synchronized.

"Quickbase Review"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and how it divides the different tasks by colors so you can see where the project status is in the testing levels. I.E. Pre-QA testing up to live testing, complete, etc.

What do you dislike?

The user can't edit or delete an existing task on a project once it has been made. The admin for our Quickbase account seems to be the only person who can edit/delete tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great software for project ticketing. It provides an easy to use interface that allows a quick visual of the number of projects that are being tested and what their status is (preQA testing, on hold, QA testing, live testing, etc). On each active project ticket, you can open it up and view the dates and times of all entries/changes for that ticket and who is assigned to each task so it helps the users to see who all is included in each project.

"Above average application software"

What do you like best?

They have a great customer support service. I'm able to submit questions to a representative or I can post them in a discussion board. There's also an easy feature where I can search through their guides and instructions of different elements of making an app.

What do you dislike?

It's organized in a semi-confusing way. There's buttons that might or might not lead to where you want to go. There's a customize this page button and an page settings button that are very similar. Quickbase also uses their own vocabulary like fields, pages, forms etc. The API can be hard to use if you need to do something as simple as adding an image to the main page of an app.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're digitizing many of our systems and reducing the paper trails. It's beneficial for people to use with no prior training.

"Amazing capabilities and endless potential!"

What do you like best?

My company has been using QuickBase for years now to grow and expand our multiple businesses. It is perfect for our flexible and fast paced business model. We can build new apps and get new projects up and running very quickly. It's the best solution out there for us and we plan on staying and growing with QuickBase for the foreseeable future.

What do you dislike?

The platform could use additional native integration features. However, they have been getting better and adding more options for us, so I'm very optimistic for what the future will bring. The platform is good at syncing data in, but not capable of pushing data out through API. Notifications are a great workaround however. You can setup automatic emails to deploy to certain people or applications. We use this to trigger an IT ticket via email notification.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to be able to control your own data and build flexible applications, QuickBase is the perfect solution. They have a great online community and educational resources which will help anyone become a master. Getting the right licensing plan is key to making this solution worth the cost.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use QuickBase across multiple departments; sales, marketing, executive, accounting, and client services. Workflow management and getting our employees out of spreadsheets are the biggest "wins" for us. The reporting capabilities are also amazing. We can collect our data points and create year-over-year reporting. Our executives love this solution.

"Excellent no-code platform"

What do you like best?

I love that with no IT or coding experience I am able to think up a solution and make it a reality using Quick Base

What do you dislike?

The only downsides of Quick Base are minor integration issues with some of our other programs. Much of this is on our side of the fence, not Quick Base's

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend setting aside some time, dollars, and manpower to map out your processes and run Quick Base as a trial. For limited upfront commitment you should be able to get a good grasp on how well it will work. Once you have the data/information in Quick Base it is outstanding how many connections you will be able to find to either automate additional steps or report out/up data that wasn't available or wasn't available as easily before.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are a lot. Nearly all of our processes are mostly or entirely dependent on Quick Base now. Quick Base has replaced dozens of excel documents for tracking.

"Easy to build apps"

What do you like best?

Quick to make stuff (once you learn how). Easy to customize. Affordable.

What do you dislike?

OMG, where do I start...

#1 most annoying thing: Cannot write data to a reference field. In other words, you can view parent table data in a child table, but you can't edit/write data from the child table view back into the parent. It is SOOOOO annoying to the user experience. Just fix that, and you'll save years and years of wasted clicking by users as they navigate up the table chain to find where the data lives.

#2 most annoying thing. Doesn't have a really responsive search (sometimes if there are too many records, it actually gives you a pop-up window to select the record from). WTF? Seriously? There needs to be some kind of super-fast auto-fill guessing like when one types in the search box of so many other websites.

#3, There's little flexibility with visual look & feel.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give yourself a month to learn it. Look at other solutions. Once you start building apps, the switching cost is high.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asset management, process tracking, CRM, data hosting for other web services (using the QB API).

Quick Base is very easy to customize to our business' use cases which means that I can create an app that fulfills exactly what my clients need. Finally, Quick Base is constantly improving the product with new features.

new features

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was a small teams pricing plan for 2-5 team members. Also, getting reporting just right and creating complex database relationships are still issues for me. However, Quick Base is already working to resolve these issues. I

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Spend some time getting to know ,and play with, the Quick Base product. While its easy to set up an app, enter data, and create simple reports on that data; it can be a little more difficult to modify your basic set up until you've learned how to use the product. Spend time taking courses in Quick base University, it's a wealth of knowledge. Finally, spend time in the Quick Base community. There are lots of very knowledgeable people who are happy answer any questions that you may have while you're learning.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have effectively used Quick Base for every are of our business; Operations, Marketing, Financial, HR and Asset Management to name a few. Our Quick Base apps answer business questions like how accurate are our project estimates and how much does the estimation process cost us?

"Fantastic Company and Community to Build a Great App"

What do you like best?

Quick Base is a great tool to build our project management tracking tool and incorporate multiple existing database files and Excel/PDF documents into one, localized place as opposed to spread across multiple drives. They also have a fantastic and responsive customer IT service that will reply in 1 hour or less.

What do you dislike?

Quick Base is lacking in some simplicity found in Excel is Access/Oracle. There are some points of design that need help, but they are working on it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool. Use the community for help, and ask questions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a tool to replace a broken project tracking tool built in Excel. Creating a simple app is nice, but the ability to create a top-class app with some simple programming and JavaScript is amazing. The tool also allows our client to see, in real-time, the state of a project. Our client uses Salesforce and that app is useless. They depend on us.

"App Building Platform for Anyone and Everyone! No no need for coding!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can envision what I want my app to look like and then I just drag and drop things into place! It's so easy and saves so much time I used to use on creating powerpoint deck, after deck...

What do you dislike?

I wish we could customize the look and feel more.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Understand how relational databases work and the theory behind it before building your apps.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There was a lot of communication issues some of the groups I have helped build apps for were experiencing. We created more efficient processes with cloud-based collaboration solution and all the teams use their apps to get reports in seconds.

"Everything you need in one spot"

What do you like best?

Quickbase lets me customize the entire app to my needs and specifications. Whereas other services similar to Quickbase offer the same idea, they do not let me do what Quickbase does. I feel like this is my page that houses my information. And that makes me feel like a valued customer.

What do you dislike?

The table size limit. I understand that this is a SQL limitation on behalf of Microsoft, but I do have a need for greater than 500 MB per table. Also, when I use Grid Edit, it needs to be able to fire Form rules. This is a must!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a quick platform that centralizes all of your information and is always there. Not only that, Quickbase always has your data safe. It's a company that will keep your data safe and available at all times.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of my files and information is centralized and we can all be on the same page at the same time. Not only that, we are able to all track the records at the same time. It's made having everyone on track so much easier and better.
