Airtable

I'd say if you're looking to consolidate project details across a number of functions where there's a lot of overlap, Airtable is a great choice. We've got a relatively small team of content creators and project managers, but we are often involved in a wide variety of media, content types and deliverables. So it helps to be able to put every activity on one master spreadsheet, but then be able to pull out views that pull out only select pieces of info for specific projects or strategies. The ability to search across fields means you can also use hashtags for folks who want to be able to locate their work using person-specific queues that don't need to be agreed-upon as part of the overall design of the table. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a content repository specifically or a DAM. It could do that in a very limited sense, but not if you're wanting to store large graphic or video assets. Also, as far as I can tell, you can't publish directly to social accounts from Airtable. So you'll still need to port your content directly to your social accounts or a platform manager like Social Studio.

Innotas is able to handle a mid-size organization extremely well, but due to its poor searching features, I can see potential problems for extremely large organizations. So a key question to ask would be what is the size of your organization? A lot of tasks are also non-automated (such as dashboard refreshing and filter time updates), so the organization should also be willing to have a decent number of employees who will maintain the system.

Also, depending on the budget or expertise of the organization's employees, an organization may want to consider a newer or more advanced database software. Despite Innotas doing what is required of it reasonably effectively, it is likely better options exist.

Pros

  • Extremely easy for low tech people to pick up and use. It feels intuitive and there are lots of examples that make it easy to learn.
  • The blocks make some pretty sophisticated stuff possible, even for people who lack a tech or database background.
  • Its a replacement for lead/case management, project management, and file storage - all in one!

  • Innotas does a great job of predictive modeling to align projects based on resource capacity, given user defined criteria.
  • Innotas has the tools and capabilities to effectively manage the day to day project execution.
  • Innotas has very flexible management reporting with the use of portfolios and dashboards.
  • Innotas synchronizes time reported by associates to tasks that the resources are assigned to in projects.
  • Innotas is accessible from anywhere there is internet access since it is a cloud based application providing flexibility for the user.

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.

  • It would be helpful to provide the ability to link projects and tasks within projects together more effectively to promote program management.
  • Features to promote Agile/SCRUM more effectively would make it easier to integrate all of the projects across our organization.

Besides the already mentioned points about the prowess of the technology, Innotas has fantastic client services. Our Innotas engagement manager that assisted with the implementation and configuration played a huge role in delivering the project on time, within budget and to exact requirement. He is still involved with our organization and assists with specific questions

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.

Both have their strengths and weaknesses.

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has made a positive impact on our organization by creating one app that allows us to do the vast majority of our work tracking and planning, in a fun and user friendly way.
  • I previously used other task trackers and could not get employees to keep them up-to-date. Something about the visuals of airtable, the micro movements, etc... that my team loves!

  • We now having a reporting mechanism to view status of all IT Projects
