Quip

Quip is well suited for a company with a sizeable Salesforce investment and wants a lot of features around collaboration. You want office type documents but you don't have a huge existing library that you also have to integrate and work with.Review the Apps that Quip makes available. They have done a good job of coming up with many team-oriented documents for different tasks. While not super full-featured, they give you enough of what you need and you will not have to spend money on other products.I am unsure of pricing but I have heard it is not cheap. There may be cost barriers to smaller companies. Google and O365 may offer more cost-effective alternatives.

Pros

  • Airtable is easy to use. It has an intuitive interface and plenty of video/help support for what is not.
  • It makes not only organizing your data efficient, but connects that data to everyone on your team in one centralized database. I love that multiple people can be editing the same records at the same time, and Airtable captures it all in real time!
  • Easy to link data between tables. This makes a lot of information available to users with just a few keystrokes - which makes the frustration of hunting down information a thing of the past.
  • Really appreciate being able to use Zapier to connect Airtable to several of our other systems that house data - MailChimp, SurveyMonkey, Quickbooks to name a few.
  • Being able to change the data views is one of the bigger fan favorites on our team, whether it is in Grid, Gallery, or Kanban, to grouping and sorting by Field Type. There is something for everyone's needs there.

  • 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 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.

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

SAIC is a gSuite campus and Airtable is a very good companion to the gSuite. The Airtable gDrive integration is quite good and Airtable solves problems that gSuite simply does not solve.
Though it does not replace them, Airtable also plays well with our Project Management toolsets.

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.
