Use QuickBase to develop robust business applications quickly and easily

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • QuickBase allows you to quickly and easily put together a working data-driven application within minutes, without the need for programming or database administration expertise
  • If you do have programming and / or database management expertise, QuickBase allows you to develop extremely powerful functionality into your applications
  • QuickBase provides a great library of in-built apps that you can use and customise to you liking
  • QuickBase has a vibrant community of enthusiasts and experts who can help troubleshoot any issues you may be facing
  • QuickBase offers extremely limited options for customising the user interface of your applications
  • Inter-table relationships have some odd peculiarities and are not very robust
  • While QuickBase has offered a way to plug other platforms and services into their applications, that selection is very limited at this point and has some staggering omissions (Office365, for instance)

The Best Platform for Custom Business Apps

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Can be completely customized to the needs of your business.
  • Can be implemented at a fraction of the time and cost of a custom coded solution.
  • Can easily scale with the changing needs of businesses.
  • Has limited "in-the-box" integration options.
  • Automated workflows aren't very comprehensive.
  • BUT will be rolling out a new tool called "Pipelines" to improve on automation & integration.

Pros and Cons

  • Quickbase allows us to create and customize forms and fields that can be tailored exactly to our business vernacular and needs.
  • Ad hoc reporting allows us to slice and dice all of our information in endless ways that help to serve a multitude of audiences.
  • By building applications in Quickbase, the platform enables us to model our business that helps us identify and implement process improvements.
  • More granular role-based access reporting would be useful.
  • Easier to use smart forms that incorporate conditional drop down boxes (if this... then that choices)

QuickBase, the defacto standard for developing Business applications for the Web.

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • QuickBase is a SaaS product. Therefore, it eliminates the need to have a dedicated department full of people to manage/administer servers for databases, websiites, web applications and so on and so forth.
  • It helps application developers get started with application development right away, without having to install any other software.
  • With an extensive point and click system for application development that still encompasses almost ALL types of programming situations, it makes it easy and quick for developers to build solutions by focusing on the business needs rather than the nitty gritty details of the implementation of the small programming components.
  • QuickBase is based on HTTP API calls and because of this, one can build custom applications using languages such as Java, JavaScript, Ruby on Rails, .NET etc so that the custom application can be the front-end while QuickBase is still the database and the backend as a service, including email as a service.
  • There are several third party products that work as an extension of QuickBase. I have personally used Exact Forms Plus to be able to generate documents based on data coming from QuickBase applications. This is possible because of the HTTP API calls that come with QuickBase This makes QuickBase extremely extensible.
  • Webhooks is a major extension of QuickBase that allows "triggers" to handle your business processes across a variety of other 3rd party SaaS products as well.
  • Automations (now integrated with Pipelines) go beyond webhooks. They use drag and drop, drop-down select type of coding with wizards such that one can't go wrong. It improves the productivity of the application developer by at least 100x
  • There have been several areas for improvement that QuickBase has collected over the years from their users via uservoice. Many cool features have been implemented.
  • However, I still feel that they should either get rid of the limitation or expand the number of form rules one can use in a form that has formula fields. Currently it is at 20!
  • I want QuickBase to seriously consider increasing datastorage at reasonable expense for developing applications that handle large transactions.
  • Get FedRamp certified. Get FedRamp certified. Get FedRamp certified. Do whatever is necessary for that. But don't move to AWS for that. Amazon is a monster. Stay away.

QuickBase Customer Service = Squad Goals

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Their customer service is best in class! Responsive, helpful, and always willing to go the extra mile.
  • Ongoing training and conferences are available to new and advanced users. Beyond just the company of Quickbase, the universe of users is such a large, connected, and friendly community of empowered citizen developers.
  • Ease of development - non-technical users can learn to quickly develop applications with Quickbase to solve longstanding business problems.
  • More advanced free-placement reporting, such as is available with Business Objects/Crystal Reports/SAP type solutions would be great.
  • More integrated advanced features into Quickbase itself rather than having to pay a third party "Quickbase Solution Provider" would be helpful also!

QuickBase quickly gives you a base to build your foundation for your project or department.

Score 10 out of 10

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • It is very easy to create apps specific to our needs.
  • It is a great way to manage and store documentation on many levels.
  • It gives us a one stop location where we can organize our entire restructuring effort.
  • I would like to be able to upload and store larger video files and Captivate files without having to zip them.
  • In our Learning/Training Department we have a need to share files so that we can have multiple sets of eyes on things as we design and develop learning elements. An easier or more intuitive method to share larger files would be great.
  • It may be because I am still relatively new to QuickBase, but it is not the easiest to navigate when trying to add new users, edit functionality of an app, etc.

Pros and Cons

  • CRM
  • Job Scheduling
  • Time Tracking
  • Notifications
  • Reports need to be beefed up. Setting up reports is not that easy.
  • Error reporting is sometimes vague. More detail about the error would make it easier to figure out what's broken.

Quick Base - rapid development of customized workflows & reporting analysis/insights

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Very agile & flexible. Apps can be developed very rapidly; it is also easy to make modifications to an existing app based on new requirements.
  • Multiple reporting formats. Can provide information quickly when adhoc requests are received from stakeholders for information.
  • Excellent customer service. The turnaround time to respond to questions is always very fast.
  • Easy access to educational tools via their on-line resource centre, Youtube & user community.
  • While 'Automation' is a very useful feature, performance is poor when processing a large volume of transactions.
  • The maximum number of dynamic filters in a report is 5. As a workaround a report is created with required filters as a result of this limitation.
  • Limited data storage for a table. While the reporting capability is excellent, workarounds have to be implemented to prematurely purge data & maintain the previous record status.

Success with Quick Base isn't by accident, they give you the tools to build your solution the way you want it.

Pros and Cons

  • Reporting on ANY given information criteria.
  • Organizing of data in an effective way that streamlines our daily tasks.
  • Customization is as easy as right clicking a form field.
  • For us, and we are a very specialized company, I would like to see more mapping features natively supported by Quick Base. Currently limited to 100 entries, limits us on how we are creating reports for our project managers.
  • The app for mobile devices is good, but it needs more tools for the administration of our Quick Base apps.
  • Price: Quick Base is an expensive solution when being used by medium-size or larger companies that will require a lot of logins.

Pros and Cons

  • Support response is phenomenal
  • Create your own workflows
  • Reasonably priced HIPAA compliant solution
  • Continuously adding functionality and features (automations are one of their main objectives this year)
  • More integrations and ones that out of the box solve immediate business needs (ex: Mailchimp, keep a list of newsletter audience bidirectionally up-to-date)
  • Mobile view/app is still terrible as the system has been built for desktop (lots of data rows)
  • More examples of truly complex (best practices) applications for easier planning of development

QuickBase - Much more than it seems

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Ease of use when starting from scratch. The ability to clearly understand how your data is being used, and how it links together is what really makes QuickBase a solid choice.
  • The community revolving around questions, real-life scenarios, and examples of fully built templates to gain inspiration and or use is a great stepping stone.
  • Price point is one of the best I have seen on the market.
  • I would like to see more integration with other vendors with employee time tracking, expenses from mobile apps
  • If there could be a functionality for a customer-facing portal or a front-end to interact with our data. We offer an online store that is linked through API to QuickBase, but we had to build the website to work with QuickBase.
  • Aside from the custom ability to create reports, I would like to see the ability to change the GUI in a drag and drop type functionality with Apps.

Pros and Cons

  • The automation and triggers to move data from table to table is very convenient.
  • The ability to organize apps and tables to display info that is most relevant, as opposed to some other programs that have "cookie-cutter" home pages.
  • There could be some more specific training available to learn some of the more complex formulas. There is a lot of trial and error, although I will say that the "help requests" are answered very quickly.
  • A decent understanding of MS Access and Excel will help you in designing your apps, but Quick Base does use a different format for creating formulas, so there can be some frustration when trying to create some automation in your tables.

Pros and Cons

  • Everyone has the access to the same information at the same time
  • All edits made can be instantly viewed and reflected on
  • It has great control over users access and permissions
  • Great ability to use different applications for different needs in the company
  • Customizable with layout as desired and adding personal code and scripts
  • Some times, it is difficult to search through some tables and applications
  • Grid edit needs to be used in a slightly more integrated way with APIs
  • Speed is a great concern for us, and when Quickbase is slow or the database is dragging along, we're hurting.

You Name It, We Track it with Quickbase.

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • It's immensely flexible and customizable, within each app and across different apps. The ways that you can use it are limited only by your ability to think about what you need. I haven't got much into script building, but have had some developers do that for us and that has extended its customization.
  • Reporting and notification. Again, customizable to the nth degree. If you can ask a question about the data in your app, you can build a report, notification, etc.
  • Reliability -- it's always working. Always up.
  • The email function. When you email reports and records to people, it bccs people so no one can see who else is getting it.
  • The search. It's almost too powerful and so when it returns records, it brings back so much that it's hard to go through. Granted, there's the advanced search, but it would be nice to have a down and dirty search that returns based on one or two main fields and returns results from newest to oldest. (We've built a report that does just that).
