Crowdbase (discontinued)

I wouldn't suggest Crowdbasefor smaller companies, even for bigger companies a more integrated solution would be desirable. It may suit companies that want their collaboration separate from project management and CRM, but at least for our organisation it seems to make more sense to have most of our work tools in one place

This is great for running challenges as you can hold and manipulate the data however needed. I use it as an advertising CRM very effectively. Displaying info where a calendar is involved is very useful as it means I can see the dates in date format rather than text. The scenario where it's less suited is where you need two sheets or ways of displaying a sheet next to each other (as far as I've found) - Such as the way Grist displays widgets.

Cons

Crowdbase (discontinued)

  • It is very limited
  • Although it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.
  • It isn't customisable like podio.

Stackby

  • How a stack is displayed after embedding into another page using their provided script. Currently, it shows the rows in a completely different layout.
  • Currently, no support for custom domains.
  • Cannot customize cell colors. Currently, can only change colors for predefined texts within a cell.
  • Lack of integration with Google ads or YouTube ads. Currently, only integration with Facebook ads exists (although I believe more will be added later).

Extremely responsive, helpful, and friendly support (unlike many other SAAS teams out there).

Crowdbase's strength may lie in its ability to do just one main thing well, but for us this was a massive limitation. I know that it is not trying to be Podio and it is therefore unfair to compare the two but there are features that overlap. for us Podio was better suited.

Airtable - better all round than Stackby but way more expensive (actually not all round - Stackby you can actually backup unlike Airtable)Infinity - bought this and wished we hadn't. Its data structures and terminology are super-confusing and it's really hard to set upNotion - not strong enough as a database but very lovely to look at!
