Airtable

I recommend Airtable to everyone! It helps manage:
  1. Assets
  2. Tasks
  3. People
If you're involved in any of those, I'd highly recommend it

We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Pros

  • Airtable has robust API access with a self-documenting API. It's vital for us to be able to access our data via an API and it's easy to do all the operations we need using an open source Python client library.
  • Airtable has robust column definitions and the ability to create formulas, lookups, and rollups so data integrity can be guaranteed.
  • Airtable handles user access and authentication and provides all the 'interface' elements of a database system so we can focus on writing business logic.

  • Project Management - Creating projects and tasks is really easy
  • Timesheets - Logging time is super quick and simple.

Cons

  • I have the same three people on several teams as a way to break up the bases. It's a lot to have one team with 20 bases, so we break them up into much smaller groups. Then when it comes to paying, I have to add them all back into the one paid group or I'm double, triple paying for the same people. Very frustrating to not have sub-folders or sub-categories within each team.

  • Recurring Projects - Right now you can create recurring tasks with a project, but if you have a project that recurs monthly with a client, as we do, you have to manually create it. Ideally, we want to be able to have this happen automatically.
  • Xero Integration - If you create an invoice based on hours, you aren't able to adjust the inventory type. Also, for the integration, you are not able to have endless inventory types mapped to GL accounts in Xero. You can only have one catch-all if you are creating invoices from timesheets.
  • Stripe/ACH Integration - Since it already integrates with Stripe to accept payments, it would be great if the user can choose ACH through Stripe instead of just Credit Card. The functionality already exists on the Stripe end, but it has not been integrated with Avaza, yet! Recurring payment options would be great as well.
  • Estimates - It would be awesome if invoices worked more like Quotes or Proposals where the client can choose an option, accept and provide a signature.

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.

They are always available and open to doing a call or a shared screen to walk through the issues.

Alternatives Considered

I don't intend to replace Basecamp with Airtable, rather enhance my use of it, limit it to what it does best, which isn't ongoing tracking of data.Not wanting to build this in something like Access, which I've used previously, I did a search for services like Airtable that would help me build a relational database online and compared them. I selected Airtable as my first choice to test, and haven't gone further. It works well. So, I can't give comparison information here. I would say start here.

This is miles ahead of ActiveCollab. It has more features, the interface is easier to use and the invoicing is easier to use. Across the board better. We migrated from ActiveCollab, but that was just essentially a Fancier Wunderlist. If you just need one project and a few tasks it works, but for company use, it is overly complex, yet missing a lot of features as well.

Return on Investment

  • Productivity is an easy place to start with ROI. The quickest and easiest way for us to see our ROI with Airtable is the ability to handle large processes and task very quickly and easily, and in many cases with automation. We have specifically seen this within our hiring and application process, where an applicant fills out the form on our website, and after submission, it lands in Airtable where it gets worked through the process.
  • Still on productivity, we have seen great impact on management the project plan for the launch of our founding school in Philadelphia. We have been utilizing Airtable to task plan each step of the process for launching the school from vision to building.
  • There has been a bit of negative impact due to limitations of the tool. Specifically the task planning an inability to nest task within the project. We have also had a few issues with the lack of the ability to link records between bases, which would help centralize data better.
