Any sort of database--keeping records of all of our volunteers, recipients, organizations, etc

Quick Base

For us, Quick Base gets used when we want to collaborate across companies (or even distant offices internally), when we have a need for a database come up on very short notice, and/or when we expect the needs of the application to frequently change. Quick Base allows us to manage all of those things easily, and we have not found another solution that does so.We don't use Quick Base if there are very complicated rules for data integrity, relationships, triggers, etc. We also don't use it to generate complex reports, although the data often resides in QB.

Pros

Airtable

  • 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!

Quick Base

  • Quick Base is easy to change, allowing us to adapt to our clients' changing needs. It's even so easy that sometimes project managers can make the changes themselves, rather than relying on a person dedicated to software development.
  • We don't have to worry about hosting and security. We can simply use it and share it with collaborators without going through all the red tape of exposing an internal server to outside parties.
  • The features of Quick Base allow us to do almost everything we need natively, so there's rarely a need to build custom solutions or hire third-party developers.

Cons

Airtable

  • The trial period should be a bit longer. I wanted to test it before I rolled it out to my team. Just after I felt comfortable and started to share, the trial period ended.
  • Shorter videos. I think there are great resources available and I really think that is a strength, but if I had to suggest something, it would be to make more short videos to give technical how-tos.

Quick Base

  • The biggest missing feature I run into is a lack of an ability to run a report across multiple tables, like you can with a SQL database. You can add lookup values to child tables, it's true, but that doesn't help you run a report that includes all records from both the parent and child tables, even if some parents have no children.
  • The second biggest feature I wish QB had is a way to intercept deletions and other actions of that sort. You can react to those actions (which is great!), but sometimes we want to prevent deleting records in specific cases, or would like to "archive" them instead of deleting outright.
  • It seems some formulas get cached and will have stale values, which makes it difficult to test if everything is working properly, especially if you're using formula fields to manage access.
  • It is a burden to manage access for a lot of users across many apps, especially if you are trying to balance giving access to those who need it and removing access from those who don't, so you can keep license fees down.

As I said, it's AMAZING, incredibly flexible -- totally intuitive, requiring almost no learning curve. I love that because it makes it easy to share with clients, without them having to learn how to use it.

It's highly available. During data center movement only once during weekdays, we found some fluctuations but that was communicated quickly with frequent updates and resolved timely.

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

I don't think there is a comparable product. Nothing I have seen is as intuitive to use and at the same time has such broad-reaching potential. I feel confident to onboard who have never seen Airtable only because it is so easy to use. At the same time, I feel we could spend the next year exploring the current functionality. It's probably the most exciting productivity tool I've seen in 18 months - I don't say that with hyperbole. It is going to change the game for our company and anyone else who uses it.

I would prefer to use Quick Base because it's customizable. I don't have to see what I don't want to see. I can make it look the way I want it to look. No other software does that as well as Quick Base.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • Saved time providing updates on where tasks are up to. Anyone in the team can go in and look to see where things are up to.
  • Allowed the team to have access to the same information at the same time, saving time in people asking each other for data and information.
  • Before Airtable we had information stored in several places - Excel, Confluence, emails, on individuals' computers - now we've put it all in one place.

Quick Base

  • Elimination of multiple points for data entry is the first impact that we have realized. This time saver is measurable and quite impactfull, it provides opportunity for people to spend their time on more valuable tasks.
  • Business process is something we are continually striving to streamline and improve and quite possibly eliminate is valuable to the business.
  • Some things are not as easily measurable because of the additional functionality which we did not have prior to QuickBase.
