Airtable

As mentioned previously, I currently developing an Airtable base to track student data and other teaching resource inventory. The children create year group databases. All of which work very well. I haven't encountered any issues or unsuitability thus far.

TaskRay

TaskRay is a great solution for small to medium sized businesses running multiple projects at the same time. It is very cost effective and their development team is actively adding new functionality regularly. If you prefer working from a tiled Kanban board view, this is highly worth evaluating.

Pros

  • One thing Airtable's power comes from is the fact that you can relate databases to each other. So you can have one table for your organizations that you work with, and another separate table for the contacts within those organizations, and then tie them together individually. After doing so it is very easy to jump between the contacts and their organizations profiles, and switch as contact to a different organization instantly. Very powerful when you have multiple contacts within single organizations, or any type of multiple data points that are linked to the same record.
  • Another thing that makes Airtable powerful is the views. You can filter, sort, and group a big table to show only the things you want to see at a particular time - but then save that view, and many other views, for later use. That way you can switch between different views of the same data on a continual basis, easily and quickly. Or different people can have different filters and sorts and different columns showing on the same table without interfering with each other.

  • TaskRay allows us to organize individual tasks across multiple accounts.
  • TaskRay will send a notification email listing out overdue tasks and tasks due today, this week, or later. This really helps to make sure no account falls through the cracks. We can also determine the frequency of notification emails. If one sales rep wants a notification every morning and another sales rep doesn't want to be bothered at all, we can control this.
  • We can create templates in TaskRay such as questionnaires that are used for every customer.

Cons

  • I think this thing has huge potential for us to manage our photos. We take over 10,000 photos a year and Airtable has the capability of easily loading, tagging and sorting them. It even has history and you could store edited versions of each photo within each original photo's profile. However - the ability to view these photos as thumbnails of different sizes, gallery style, is very limited. So that's a big additional feature I'd like to see, some optimization to use this as a photo management system.
  • If you include numbers into a table, automagically from another table via the rollup or lookup features, then you cannot use those numbers as part of a formula in a subsequent field. This turned out to be a major limiting factor on my using it as a budget manager. (Luckily I came up with a workaround but it makes me add additional columns to the table that add a bit of otherwise unnecessary clutter.)

  • Unfortunately TaskRay does not allow us to share templates externally with customers.
  • We have employees all over the world and we don't think TaskRay will support other languages such as Japanese. Note, I am speaking with a sales rep next week to confirm this, so we may be incorrect.

It's hands-down the best PM tool we have ever used. Nothing compares in ease of use and being easy to learn. It also looks great and makes sense immediately

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 intend to replace Basecamp with Airtable, rather enhance my use of it, limit it to what it does best, which isn't ongoing tracking of data.Not wanting to build this in something like Access, which I've used previously, I did a search for services like Airtable that would help me build a relational database online and compared them. I selected Airtable as my first choice to test, and haven't gone further. It works well. So, I can't give comparison information here. I would say start here.

TaskRay does not require you to be a certified project manager to manage your project like MS Project. We also tried using the Salesforce free project solution but it's not as tightly integrated with SF as the TaskRay and again not nearly as easy to use. We also used ConnectWise in the past but again it was it's own silo and not integrated with the rest of our business software so it was difficult to use it in practice

Return on Investment

  • Increased, improved communication among staff. Therefore, the staff spends less time in the dark and less time dedicated to communicating effectively.
  • Increased efficiency for workflow, which leads to higher productivity.
  • A better final product for the audiences we serve, and better accessibility to the information that they need.

  • It has highly increased the efficiency and communication with our teams. We are a virtual company and this is the most important benefit we get from Task Ray.
