Dotmatics
If you need to use multiple softwares to compile data such as spreadsheets, another app to run statistics, or another software to make graph and layout, you can try Graphpad Prism because it can do all of this in just a few clicks.

Grist Labs
This is well suited to someone (or a team) who are technically minded and have a dataset that they need to be able to use in many ways. It's less appropriate for a team who isn't technically minded and/or don't have the data they need to manipulate. It would be useful for things that you could use a database or spreadsheet for such as CRM, Advertising database, Business tracking, Health tracking etc.

Cons
Dotmatics
  • The layout feature have been improved over the years but I believe it could be improved by adding more editing tool specially those for images.
  • Prism should have more packages for stat analysis.

Grist Labs
  • Making the user permissions more obvious on how to use them - They are highly adaptable, but hard to understand how to use them
  • Small changes such as auto colouring the choices/toggles options and being able to edit them once set.
  • Being able to copy the formatting from one column to the next

Return on Investment
Dotmatics
  • It improved a lot the way we show data, and therefore it increased our visibility.
  • Analysis performed by this software gives credibility.

Grist Labs
  • It's saved a lot of time in both creating an advertising database and managing it week to week effectively. I had previously created in others that haven't worked, and this does, saving me a good 1 hour weekly, and 5 hours or more each time I had problems with the last ones
  • Being able to stay on track with this has meant I'm following up at the right time (advertisers) and keeping a professional manner and not losing business due to missed communication
  • Saving me $ from buying a program like Access (or Airtable monthly) and then the learning curve that that has. This has a much easier learning curve to say the least.
