As mentioned previously, I currently developing an Airtable base to track student data and other teaching resource inventory. The children create year group databases. All of which work very well. I haven't encountered any issues or unsuitability thus far.

Well suited for companies of all sizes. I can't think of a scenario where it wouldn't be appropriate.

Pros

  • It's very easy to use. I was able to start from scratch and get a pretty complex workflow set up in just a couple hours.
  • The ability to create one "master table" with every piece of possible information is good for the "deep dive" members of the team, but then it's easy to create views and calendars based on just a few pieces of data that are better for one specific use or person.
  • Being able to store draft content on the system as attachments means that the review copy/image can be included in the workflow rather than as a separate email or in another tracking system.
  • The ability to quickly group, sort and filter on the master table make it easy for the power-users to work with the full set of information, but still find a specific project quickly.

  • Theme customization by changing CSS code, logo, colors, header, footer, etc.
  • Free version for product evaluations and pilot projects up to 10 users.
  • Clean interface - Good UI and UX.
  • File sharing, meetings schedulement, forums and tasks control for teams

Cons

  • In a base, I need to lock specific tables for specific people in the team. I want to have all the information in one base - I do not want everybody to see the budget and all the donors, however, I want to have one database of donors to be integrated with MailChimp. Either I need to link two bases or I need to set specific access rights fro every table.
  • Iphone app might have a calendar view, and block as well, also missing grouping would be great in a mobile app.
  • In charts, more series would be helpful - not just one line in a line graph, a pie chart would be nice too. Pivot tables might also allow more fields and options.

  • Pricing can lead to high costs.
  • Users without CSS knowledge may have a hard time to customize themes. Maybe more graphical options to change layouts would be nice.
  • NO SSO and LDAP authentication methods available in the basic version.
  • Languages support in the basic version.

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

There are 2 main competitors I feel, Google Sheets and MS Excel. Both are great for creating complex spreadsheets with complex logic and interlinking in between them, however, the speed of quickly creating process flows, data management systems and more in Airtable is way better.Given the fact that we also have a large proportion of our team that is not very tech-savvy, we've faced difficulty in getting people to use formulae like VLOOKUP or conditional statements etc in traditional spreadsheet applications, and now with Airtable they can create their own process and logic flows without writing any code.

Igloo was much more intuitive to set-up and navigate. In addition, Jive did not have file folders for documents and that was really needed.

Return on Investment

  • A bit early to tell on pure ROI but Airtable is a relatively inexpensive to roll out new ideas and dashboards so the investment has been low. We've saved $1000s on annual SaaS costs for other platforms that didn't do what we wanted.

  • Compliance: we have easy to access and version controlled records of important documents.
  • Central repository of resources: employees have a place to go for the latest templates and processes.
  • Employee satisfaction: place to share good news, ideas, or ask for help.
