Airtable

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

Sococo

Well suited for large distributed teams. Hard to introduce where someone who should know better has mandated an inferior Microsoft product.

Pros

  • very intuitive and simple to use
  • bug-free
  • we are able to formulate it for our needs instead of fitting into someone else's idea of what we need
  • usable across multiple platforms and devices--desktops, laptops, iphones.
  • editing in real time, and several viewers viewing screens from remote locations

  • Good voice codex. Voices come across clearly and I've never had problems struggling to understand another person due to static.
  • Easy screen sharing. The screen sharing is intuitive and easy to use. In addition, it's easy for multiple people to be sharing a screen at the same time, and viewers can easily hop between the different shared screens.
  • Has a mobile phone application version, web browser version , and stand alone client.

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 great if it supported other major browsers. Not everyone has Chrome installed.
  • The ongoing subscription cost is difficult to justify. This is the only reason we stopped using it.

It's not perfect but it is really easy to use and I think most slightly technical people will pick it up quite quickly.

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

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.

Sococo lacks the power of Slack for storing and searching old messages but I think Dlack is overkill in most situations. When using instant messages ad an alternative to a quick phone call who needs a record?

Skype for Business is just awful for conference calls. You can't have ad-hoc meetings. Also people outside the organisation (contractors, etc.) won't have the client software.

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has definitely had a positive impact on our organization. It's helped up organize and manage our client information, keeping it current, accurate, and accessible to everyone on our team, no matter where they are. We are able to be more efficient and client-responsive because of this.
  • It's automated some of the tasks we were performing manually - capturing data that our systems like MailChimp and SurveyMonkey house - and importing it directly into our database through the use of Zapier, thus saving us time and potential data input error.
  • My only "negative impact" comment I'll put out there is that it is just really fun to use - and because of that I've personally "lost" a lot of time spent exploring and being inspired by so many new ways to house other business data!
  • All-in-all, it is keeping us in front of our data, freeing up time and resources, and giving us a better view into running our nonprofit more efficiently and effectively.

  • Sococo completely overcame the problem of staying in touch with remote development teams.
  • Enabled daily scrum meetings, sprint reviews, etc.
  • Helped keep everybody engaged in the project.
