  • The customization of the Quickbase platform is extremely valuable, the fact we can utilize existing apps is also valuable.
  • An onboarding specialist is very valuable and Quickbase does a great job ensuring they set up your environment to your business needs.
  • I believe the room for improvement would be a more object oriented setup, instead of the database design or master keys and creating relationships, a more user-friendly, modular setup would be nice to have.
