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.

The cost and also to get people to change from old systems to new systems. It is not easy to get people to change from using Word to using XaitPorter.Those who are willing to change and start using say "why haven't I started using this before". :-)

Pros

Airtable

  • The website is very well laid out. It is uncluttered, easy to navigate, and is highly visual. There are a great range of field types and add-on blocks.
  • Setting up bases is very straightforward. If you get stuck the help section and videos are excellent. You can also access Airtable Universe to see examples of how the product is used by others.
  • I have submitted a number of queries by email and in each case the staff were very helpful and responded quickly. Given that I was using a free account at the time, I was very impressed.
  • Given that I have used the product with very young children successfully, I think that it is extremely well designed.

  • Xait puts together some really attractive proposals that are sent out to clients.
  • Xait is an effective repository to store responses to tenders.
  • Xait keeps all attachments for each section separate, which is a huge plus.
  • Xait shows you on the right side what each figure within the section will look like.
  • Xait generates TOC's for attachments and figures.

Cons

Airtable

  • entering a single record seems to have to be done across several screens. Perhaps just the way we did it, but would be easier if it were all done on one screen
  • can't figure out how to "hide" a record once one of the people we are visiting dies. We don't want to delete the record, just hide it from the primary view.
  • eventually, it would be great to be able to integrate into Gmail--eg to hit the email address and have that transfer to an email...but perhaps not possible without permission from google...

  • Xait is hard to manipulate in terms of page breaks and where words and objects will fall when printed.
  • Xait has to be manipulated if the client is not wanting the typical "Section 1,2, 3 etc." After you figure out how to change to change the numbering it's easy, but figuring it out is not so easy.
  • Xait does not put pages in between the attachments.
  • When finishing the tender etc. in Xait, there is a step-by-step check box you have to go through and if you check the wrong box, you have to start over, which takes time.
  • To assemble the entire document sometimes takes 15 + minutes and if you are at the very last minutes to submit, this is not a good thing.

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

XaitPorter is always there even though we have issues with outages (suddenly the network does not work, but that is internal issue)

Our reports/Tenders complete in a reasonable time frame, actually faster than Word. We have not integrated with other systems or softwares.

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

We do use Social Studio and Sharepoint for other tasks, but for project planning across a wide variety of deliverables, there wasn't enough flexibility all the time. Asana was harder to use and get into and didn't provide an easy way to adjust views/sorts.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • Productivity is an easy place to start with ROI. The quickest and easiest way for us to see our ROI with Airtable is the ability to handle large processes and task very quickly and easily, and in many cases with automation. We have specifically seen this within our hiring and application process, where an applicant fills out the form on our website, and after submission, it lands in Airtable where it gets worked through the process.
  • Still on productivity, we have seen great impact on management the project plan for the launch of our founding school in Philadelphia. We have been utilizing Airtable to task plan each step of the process for launching the school from vision to building.
  • There has been a bit of negative impact due to limitations of the tool. Specifically the task planning an inability to nest task within the project. We have also had a few issues with the lack of the ability to link records between bases, which would help centralize data better.
