Airtable

Airtable is best suited for any size company. Especially companies with many departments working on many projects. Airtable is also a great tool for regularly scheduled meetings to keep track of things discussed, documents used, and assignments. We use it to plan any event we hold for our company and our annual company retreat. It really keeps things organized and is very easy to access across any device. Outside of financial spreadsheets, this really replaces any spreadsheet software, including—and perhaps especially—cloud-based shared spreadsheets.

Quip

Quip is perfect for small businesses. I'm sure it would be handy for large businesses as well, but for small businesses, this is a magnificent solution to keep seemingly everything in one place. Also, it's incredibly affordable! There is a free version, but if/when you're ready to upgrade to the paid version, it's not expensive at all.

Pros

  • The website is very well laid out. It is uncluttered, easy to navigate, and is highly visual. There are a great range of field types and add-on blocks.
  • Setting up bases is very straightforward. If you get stuck the help section and videos are excellent. You can also access Airtable Universe to see examples of how the product is used by others.
  • I have submitted a number of queries by email and in each case the staff were very helpful and responded quickly. Given that I was using a free account at the time, I was very impressed.
  • Given that I have used the product with very young children successfully, I think that it is extremely well designed.

  • Quip puts a lot of chatting capabilities into everything - likes, tags, favorites, callouts, emojis, Giphy, attachments. So communication is rich and creative. And they link chatting communication into everything.
  • Quip allows for collaboration on all documents. Highlights on document or lines or parts of documents are allowed. So collaboration can be very specific within the document. There are date time tags so it is easy to trace historically. Quip also notes when someone sees something which is handy for possible follow-ups instead of waiting for a reply of some kind.
  • Quip has done a fantastic job of expanding Quip capabilities. When we first started, only basic office documents were allowed. Now they have many other apps for project tracking, calendar, working with Salesforce records, and integration with JIRA. These are all very simple to use. It is easy to start using with no training.

Cons

  • I can't actually think of any road blocks or insufficiencies yet!

  • It would be good to have the option of making the chat a little bigger when needed.
  • Sometimes documents can become too long, it would be good to add tabs for the same campaign.
  • Close down the white-space on the sides of the Quip document so more content can be seen at glance.

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

Excel and Microsoft 365 are good for what they do but don't fill the database niche the way that Airtable does. LiveImpact looks amazing but is currently out of our price range and better suited to medium-large nonprofits. Airtable is the perfect place to start our small org and I keep finding new capabilities in it to help us manage our infrastructure as we grow.

Quip is free. Again, as mentioned earlier: it is a fantastic tool that does most of the job if you do not have the budget for an MS Office license. It does the job well for most professional documents in Word or Excel type docs. It is more easy and intuitive to use since it has fewer features.

Return on Investment

  • It's too soon to have conclusive evidence of ROI, but I suspect our improved ability to manage our partner and donor relationships will improve, thus leading to positive ROI in the future.
Dana Luco profile photo
  • Quip has empowered me to stay up-to-date on project and company strategy without having to email anyone.
  • Our team is able to preserve knowledge and search for answers.
  • Quip has helped facilitate onboarding lessons for new team members.
