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.

Socialcast

For some reason, Socialcast does not get mentioned in a list of enterprise social networks often. Yammer, Jive, and Chatter draw headlines, but Socialcast is a very strong competitor in this field. Of course, the differences between full-featured platforms like Jive and so-called micro-blogging platforms is another discussion altogether. Suffice to say, if you're considering a Chatter, Yammer, or even Tibbr, you should look carefully at Socialcast

Pros

Airtable

  • All the hard work of trying to build a solution in Excel is done for you. You can create links to simple mobile-friendly forms and datasheets and it builds input forms automatically that can then be easily customized.
  • The relationships across tables are robust and deal with changes to fields and tables without the need for intervention or maintenance (like a proper database).
  • Initial set up and use require a minimal set of IT skills. Coming with an array of pre-built templates and the ability to import your existing spreadsheet and customize and fine tune it from there into a database
  • They don't contact me every day trying to sell their product (probably because they don't have to).

  • Share the collective knowledge of our company in a centralized location
  • Publicly praise and thank employees
  • Make strategic information and corporate values accessible to all employees worldwide

Cons

Airtable

  • 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.

  • There is limited functionality with some of the mobile device apps. I'm only familiar with iPhone, but I've heard this from other users. Photos sometimes do not render; you can sometimes not see links that were posted from the web view.
  • Socialcast does not offer presence which we'd find useful.

Beyond the value FactSet derives from using the platform, Socialcast (the firm) has been a good partner to FactSet. We've experienced very little downtime with the service and they have been responsive and fair with enhancement requests and 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

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.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • We are still in the early stages, but AirTable has allowed our small team of five to coordinate almost twice as many rentals of our gallery space for private events, thus providing out nonprofit with increased income that can be reinvested into improvements to our gallery and new programming.

  • Ha. We could not run our business without Socialcast. It is our primary channel of communication.
