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

Igloo

We use Igloo as a platform to share information among teams across different countries. We link production (printing) instructions with the production files so that the manufacturers have the most up to date version. This works really well

Pros

  • Organization: Helps keep the various programs and rentals, along with all contact information, notes, and budgeting requests in line.
  • Task Management: Easy to share documents with both team members and outside contacts, such as board members and volunteers, to assign and keep track of tasks related to the various programs, events, and exhibits we host. Also helps keep track of priority of these tasks.
  • Flexible: Only having used the product for a few weeks, AirTable has proven to be a very flexible platform to use and adapt to our various needs. I am already looking forward to learning about the deeper functionality of the program and how we can adapt it for our use.

It's not perfect but it is really easy to use and I think most slightly technical people will pick it up quite quickly.

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

I don't currently have experience with other platforms that are related to AirTable, other than, perhaps, Excel. AirTable has, by far, much more adaptability and the ability to customize "smart" spreadsheets for our needs.

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

  • Airtable has allowed us to streamline and automate almost all of our repeatable processes, saving loads of team time.
  • Airtable has allowed us to document and store critical information on our network, then share select pieces of this information with an external audience via a shareable view link, meaning less back and forth emails to keep stakeholders updated.
  • Airtable has allowed us to embed our application form on our website and have all applicant data feed directly into our database for scoring and program planning,
