Airtable

Airtable is great for event management and complex calendaring. It's also great for managing projects with lots of to do's by different people. I'm also considering using it for our participant database. I used to work in inventory management on a farm and can see how great it would be for managing inventory from field to distribution. Airtable is well-suited to managing lots of information vs other software that's more suited to number crunching and calculations (you can still do those things in Airtable...I think).

StatusPage

StatusPage is well suited for notifications on services and products. If you need to have a passive way to notify users, internal staff, or executives on the status of SaaS services, StatusPage is a low barrier way to do this with minimal setup and maintenance.StatusPage is not well suited for scenarios in which you want info kept private. If StatusPage is updated, the subscribers to those alerts will be notified so you just want to make sure you're addressing the right audience with updates.

Pros

  • Ability to link across tables, allowing information from one "sheet" to always be viewed in context with other relevant information
  • Ability to customize columns to have many different functions (single/multi select dropdowns, numbers, email address, attachments, of course long and short text, and more)
  • Ability to change and save "views" of the same table so that different team members can easily access different configurations of the same information depending on the task at hand; plus the ability to create shareable views for an external audience where our team can control what's visible

Cons

  • Airtable is a great project management tool, which is my primary use for it, but it does lack on particular feature, that I know will be addressed at some point. I am in great need of a way to nest tasks within a task line item. It has become very difficult to create a large scale project plan and be able to see the grand large picture of the project, but also drill down into the details. Creating a field option for subtasks would help pull related tasks, or steps within a task, to allow for this.
  • Airtable is great when it comes to integration, but the problem we run into as a non-profit, is that most of the automation comes from another service, which is another cost. I would love to see them develop some sort of integration in-house, or work with Zapier to offer a discounted plan when you sign-up for both of their services.
  • Airtable handles linking of records well, but another problem we run into, is the inability to link items within a separate base. An example of the goal for us here, would be to have the ability to create a centralized database of contacts, that can be linked to several other processes, like a separate on-boarding base, or a project or event plan. Without this, we end up with redundant data in several bases with no centralized place to look for what is needed at any given time.

  • StatusPage is nice because it keeps a rolling update on the previous statuses, but when it displays in Hipchat it just shows the last update.

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.

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 is much easier to use than any of these applications. The only features that give it competition are nesting tasks within a project, which Asana does well, as well as Trello and Flow. Airtable is also very flexible in terms of capability. The only completion there is Google Sheets, which is must more difficult to use overall, and not very user friendly or visually appealing. Airtable has endless uses, while these other applications are generally found only in the project and task management world.

I would say StatusPage on its own is a great service. StatusPage for Hipchat can only be used with that specific chat client. But on its own StatusPage can be integrated with many tools, like Slack, email notifications, text notifications, etc.I don't know of a tool that compares with StatusPage. You could essentially host your own status site with Greed Yellow or Red statuses, but you would be missing out on the robustness of a tool that keeps historical data, uptime, and segregates services based on components.

Return on Investment

  • Time saved in developing our in house employee management tool is massive! Was able to create a full-fledged HR system in 1 hour, v.s. at least 4-5 hours using Google Sheets or creating a custom web-based solution
  • We have also implemented it for managing our in-house PR process for managing journalist relations and task management for PR activities. This is in the process and we are yet to do a formal ROI analysis here
  • Project Management - We earlier were using a clunky and difficult to use software to manage our projects, but Airtable seems to be a great option for improving productivity and ease of use by at least 30-40%

  • StatusPage does not have a specific measurable ROI. We use StatusPage as an ad-hoc notification tool.
