Airtable

Good for replacing administrative spreadsheets, creating resource assignment and calendars, planning activities, creating on the fly data stores, outputting simple mobile data entry forms. Dealing with mobile staff needing to enter simple data quickly or with managers and officers who need to see real-time snapshots of information. When dealing with smaller data sets and not requiring blocks, then for a non-profit it is useful to have the free workspaces where everyone can fully collaborate and update records.Less good for complex financial work you should stick with Excel or your finance system. If you have a very large number of records and need many people to be able to update records then you need to consider the costs (however most off the shelf products you will be looking at to do your specific tasks will probably cost more when you evaluate them).

I like that Avaya Communicator allows me to dial numbers directly from the screen by clicking on them. It helps me to work faster and smarter. However, Avaya Communicator crashes several times per day and the amount of clicks it takes to relaunch is a time suck

Pros

  • Airtable is easy to use. It has an intuitive interface and plenty of video/help support for what is not.
  • It makes not only organizing your data efficient, but connects that data to everyone on your team in one centralized database. I love that multiple people can be editing the same records at the same time, and Airtable captures it all in real time!
  • Easy to link data between tables. This makes a lot of information available to users with just a few keystrokes - which makes the frustration of hunting down information a thing of the past.
  • Really appreciate being able to use Zapier to connect Airtable to several of our other systems that house data - MailChimp, SurveyMonkey, Quickbooks to name a few.
  • Being able to change the data views is one of the bigger fan favorites on our team, whether it is in Grid, Gallery, or Kanban, to grouping and sorting by Field Type. There is something for everyone's needs there.

Cons

  • I can see where being able to connect several bases together within one workspace would be beneficial. Currently, we've created a lot of tables within one CRM base, and in doing so has made it a bit overwhelming (visually) for some of our users. Limits flexibility a bit.
  • The app for the iPhone is solid. The Android app needs some work/an update.
  • The formula functionality between cells is a bit limited (not the depth of say, MSExcel) and not intuitive for all of our user base.
  • The ability to create charts through the "Blocks" options is a great idea, but very limited in it's initial debut. Looking for more features (pie charts, series labels, dual axes, etc.) to be able to create more dynamic charts in the future.
  • I've gotten a browser warning or two about Airtable being "resource heavy." Time will tell if that becomes an issue.

  • Avaya Communicator crashes several times per day
  • By default, Avaya Communicator dials on speakerphone so I always have to switch to my head set. This is very annoying when making 30+ calls per day.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable is much more user-friendly and easy to navigate and update than Confluence. We still use Confluence as a wiki, but Airtable is used for all our day to day management.

Return on Investment

  • If not for Airtable I would have had to pursue a CRM system and an asset management system, plus some sort of task management system for multiple employees, and manage my budget in Excel which is a pain when it gets complex. Airtable lets me put all this in one system, light weight, extremely powerful, and extremely efficient. Exactly what we needed. I am so happy this system exists.
  • Airtable is free and you can get quite a bit in there and use it for a while before deciding to go to the paid version. Therefore the proof of concept was quite easy to bring it into our organization. We've been using it for a few months and it's made everyone's lives easier, so moving now to the paid version is a no-brainer. I didn't have to ask everyone to take a big leap of faith in the beginning and there was no big up front resource investment either, at least relative to setting up any other software or even complex Excel workbooks.
  • Several people in our organization have commented that this system has made their lives far easier, because we can now keep track of our tasks and our events. Our key people are both saner and more efficient.
  • The paid version of Airtable is DIRT CHEAP in comparison to the systems it stands in for. I cannot emphasize this enough.

  • By reducing human error and making it faster to dial numbers I can get more work done.
