Likelihood to Recommend

Airtable

Good for replacing administrative spreadsheets, creating resource assignment and calendars, planning activities, creating on the fly data stores, outputting simple mobile data entry forms. Dealing with mobile staff needing to enter simple data quickly or with managers and officers who need to see real-time snapshots of information. When dealing with smaller data sets and not requiring blocks, then for a non-profit it is useful to have the free workspaces where everyone can fully collaborate and update records.Less good for complex financial work you should stick with Excel or your finance system. If you have a very large number of records and need many people to be able to update records then you need to consider the costs (however most off the shelf products you will be looking at to do your specific tasks will probably cost more when you evaluate them).

Zenkit

Well suited to most small business productivity requirements. Can be used as a basic CRM, used to manage projects. There are even use case templates for ERP, Inventory & Order Management, Document Management & HR. So in the absence of software covering these business functions in a business, they could use Zenkit to manage these simple processes at a bargain price (Free or $9per user per month depending on subscription).Less appropriate if you have more complex business process requirements.

Pros

  • The ease of the relational database capabilities are key for keeping tracking of how our contacts, partners, donors, and event attendees are all related.
  • The map block feature is great for when we're on the road visiting partners.
  • The custom views are extremely helpful for viewing the most important information quickly.
  • As a nonprofit, the reduced prices are also greatly appreciated so we can put more funds towards the youth we serve rather than into infrastructure.
  • Of HUGE importance is the care and feeding I've received from customer support. I ask a question and get a response within 24 hours and the response is personalized and makes sense. The conversation with a single representative is such a relief and makes it so much easier for me to be productive.
  • I suspect that the technology integrations with other apps, using Zapier or otherwise, will become more and more important to us - we're working on getting PayPal payment completions to populate our event attendee lists right now!

  • Multiple Views - Kanban.Cards, Lists, Tables & even Mindmaps
  • Addition of custom fields which included numbers
  • In table view this can be filtered & numbered fields can have totals at the top.
  • Zenkit has handy pre-buitl templates for different kinds of use such a CRM
  • Has the ability to change field content across cards via bulk action. Neat!
  • Can have formulas in Cutom fields
  • Calander syncs to Google calendar
  • Can bulk import Trello lists & cards easily

Cons

  • I can't actually think of any road blocks or insufficiencies yet!
Dana Luco profile photo
  • App sometimes a wee bit slow to sync but this has improved
  • Would like ability to reorder the position of a custom field in the card
  • Currently can't link emails to cards as in other CRM systems (ie use a bcc dropbox email address)

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.

In a previous review for Trello I said it was great, which it is. Zenkit, however, is Trello on steroids and previously only thing holding me back from moving totally to Zenkit was the fact they didn't have mobile apps. They now have a both Android & Iphone apps. So I will be completing the transition across to Zenkit. Will still use Trello on occasion.

Return on Investment

  • If not for Airtable I would have had to pursue a CRM system and an asset management system, plus some sort of task management system for multiple employees, and manage my budget in Excel which is a pain when it gets complex. Airtable lets me put all this in one system, light weight, extremely powerful, and extremely efficient. Exactly what we needed. I am so happy this system exists.
  • Airtable is free and you can get quite a bit in there and use it for a while before deciding to go to the paid version. Therefore the proof of concept was quite easy to bring it into our organization. We've been using it for a few months and it's made everyone's lives easier, so moving now to the paid version is a no-brainer. I didn't have to ask everyone to take a big leap of faith in the beginning and there was no big up front resource investment either, at least relative to setting up any other software or even complex Excel workbooks.
  • Several people in our organization have commented that this system has made their lives far easier, because we can now keep track of our tasks and our events. Our key people are both saner and more efficient.
  • The paid version of Airtable is DIRT CHEAP in comparison to the systems it stands in for. I cannot emphasize this enough.

  • For the price, it is definitely worth a punt.
  • Helped me manage tasks, processes and strategic goals thus saving time & being more efficient.
  • SImple to learn & plenty of tutorials so onboarding was straightforward.
