Clarizen One

Clarizen got the job done with time tracking and expense reports, but it didn't do enough to make our organization continue using it. We ended up switching because the key stakeholders (resource management) were unhappy with its offerings. This might be a good fit for smaller organizations that require less feature and capabilities. Instead, our company switched to OpenAir, which has more robust time tracking, expense reports, and PTO accrual and monitoring programs.

Quickbase has made our team well known throughout the company. Our team is quick to ramp up new projects, meet all the requirements by the project manager to a specific project, and provide the necessary reporting & insight to the progress of their team more efficiently than other programs.

Pros

Clarizen One

  • Highly customizable, can develop organization specific workflows, modules, etc.
  • Interface (in most instances) is easy to use. Timesheets, project details, and report modules are fairly easy to navigate and understand.
  • Good comms tools like discussions, group pages, automatic reminders and notifications.

Quickbase

  • Create reports on the fly to know what's happening in the company.
  • Build dashboards for users in different roles so they can focus on their specific tasks.
  • Mobile apps let people use Quick Base anywhere they have Internet access.
  • Automatically send notifications based on criteria.
  • Powerful form design.

Cons

Clarizen One

  • Export: I'm not wild about the export options. We created a custom project plan formatter to turn the ugly export in CSV to a customer facing color coded PDF. It's not super easy to give your customers something pretty to look at (although they do offer PPTs)
  • Gantt Charts: All I want in life is a nice little high level set of milestones to pop into a slide I'm showing to a steering committee. It's just not something the system does. I've just had to screen shot a hard to read gantt from the system or recreate in PPT or Visio. No fun
  • Speed: I am not sure what's going on here but Clarizen can be pretty slow to update small changes to project plans. It's rough when you have a laundry list of changes to make but the system is waiting

Quickbase

  • It would be nice to have a more interactive UI in line with the kanban report that was released. Things such as drag and drop records to update data.
  • More flexibility with purchasing options, such as any number of users and less expensive space options.
  • Being able to view multiple levels of cascading children in a single form.

I give my renewal of this product a 9. It's only because we never know what product may come out next and how other factors in our office political environment may cause impact upon this. If I always had my way, this is what we'd settle on as our de facto project management system.

With Salesforce being such a presence in business operations, we've had to "fend off" being asked to replace our QB apps with in-house/out of the box apps from Salesforce. With the cost of Quick Base and having to justify keeping it instead of Salesforce, it's been a challenge we've been fighting.

Usability

It is easy to configure, intuitive. The customization process is in some ways better than Salesforce.com. It has a great UI. It does however depend on how it's implemented.

The design of it is generally fine, however the ability to data upload people from a spreadsheet is an obvious miss.

Quick Base has done everything we have asked it to do and then some. Our original goal was to have one system for CRM that encompassed both the sales process and the customer management. We have gone w-a-y beyond that with analytics, project management, system bug logging, and historical effort reporting.

Once we did get Quick Base configured and customized it was reliably available when we needed it. We may have had one or two occasions when the product was inaccessible but those were few. The greatest challenge with its availability was its difficulty with integrating with our systems.

Some of our tables that hold over a million records are starting to perform poorly, with some summaries taking over 20 seconds to load. This may be an indication that it is best to archive old data when reaching large volumes like this.

It's a good experience overall. Clarizen was useful when needed. It's mostly needed for advice on how to do more sophisticated actions or how to change something that was set up administratively. It's seldom used otherwise. The product consistently works, the documentation is acceptable, and the generally intuitive product is easy enough for most staff to pick up without much issue.

The help and documentation are top notch and available 24/7. The community also provides an additional layer of assistance and creativity in problem solving. For bugs and support the QuickBase team themselves are second to none. Immediate response with a case number and personalized support. They do not quit until they've solved your issue - even if your issue is that you're confused about how something works and misinterpreted or couldn't find the documentation. They'll helpfully and knowledgeably walk you through any problem from the syntax of a difficult formula to enterprise level governance and data management issues.

• We worked with a Project Manager on their side. He was very good about developing a project plan to hit our goal. I think we had weekly or twice weekly calls – very steady cadence over 3 month period.
• Their PM skills were great – kept us on task. For the last week, they sent 2 people on site and they did training for power users. After that a couple of them revisited here

Our trainer, Alex, is exceptional and knows the product really well. I swear he must have wrote the product himself! His manner with training is very easy going, gives you homework that is applicable to what you need to learn and stages it correctly for you. It was a pleasure to be trained by him.

I performed the implementation with our Clarizen provide trainer, who knew the product 100% and it went quickly and without a problem. It was a pleasurable process without the problems other software implementation often encounter. Kudos to the Clarizen team for making this a worry free process for their clients because it is worry free.

I was not directly involved with the initial account implementation, only a bystander. For the app I directly implemented for my department only, I wish I had know to create an app diagram first. I don't remember if that was suggested. I think that would be a great help tip tool when a new app is created, to have a page with a check list of what is needed or how to get started. If you are a regular app builder, then you can bypass it or have the ability to turn it off in the app settings.

Alternatives Considered

Clarizen One

There were several others I reviewed that I can no longer remember but none of them compared to Clarizen when it came to flexibility. Many factors sold us on Clarizen but most importantly it was that Clarizen was capable of wrapping itself around our existing processes instead of us changing to to meet the software tool. With that said, we are now looking at changing some of our processes due to the fact that Clarizen is such a powerful tool!

Quickbase

While Salesforce has a much larger market share, I prefer Quick Base when it comes to custom app development. Even with Lighting, many of Salesforce's back-end tools needed to customize forms and processes are not actually low-code and require a pretty good understanding of Ajax and other coding languages. Salesforce is also more expensive per user than Quick Base for comparable plan levels.Where Salesforce shines over Quick Base is that you can start with an "out of the box" solution like their Salescloud CRM that will work on day 1 and then tweak from there.

It has evolved really well with our company, but there is a hard limit to the table size that has begun to affect us and not let us grow. The table size limit is set at 500 MB and we have had to jump through quite a few hoops to be able to get by.

Return on Investment

Clarizen One

  • Great customer feedback related to real-time availabilty of project status. We could tailor gant charts to various customers within an organization fairly quickly.
  • Seeing real-time breakdown of costs and time for projects was great. The main page with summary charts was a great way to get information at a glance.
  • Clarizen use definitely helped us stream-line project planning and assisted with identifying bottlenecks.
  • We run many projects in parallel with similar timepoints (pre-, interim-, and post-). The software was pretty straight forward, permitting us to create one project outline then dupiclating it (as a template) for a number of others.
Carlos Chang | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quickbase

  • Improved Customer Satisfaction by reducing time to market that too with a product with a great user experience.
  • Huge Cost Saving by FTEs reduction and Improved productivity
  • Added efficiencies
  • The client asking for QuickBase but having a huge user base, due to licensing cost we have to offer another alternative solution.
