Overall Satisfaction with Caspio

Caspio is used by the research services department, which conducts compensation and benefit surveys along with other reports specific to human resources. Caspio is used to collect participating organizations compensation data and is used for compensation reports. This data is made available to organizations for future surveys but is also used to compare their data to survey results. The database also stores surveys and reports that the organization may access anytime.
  • Caspio is an online database platform. It allows one to create multiple tables and views to be stored via the web. Tables can be configured to not only hold data but also to hold files like Word docs and images.
  • Caspio is great at creating online forms and reports. It allows the user to create forms to capture, update data, whether it's password protected or just a simple form.
  • As a database platform, one can create online tables and forms linking multiple tables and views to each other. I would say it is the Microsoft Access of the online platforms.
  • The system is very easy. Wizards allow one to create forms, tables, and datapages. Since the platform is online, you may access your database anywhere.
  • Reports are one of the features that I think could be fixed. At the moment it will show you the raw data itself but we would like the ability to summarize that data for reports.
  • For over 10 years Caspio has been a great tool by allowing our users to retrieve data they have submitted in the past to update data to be used for current surveys.
  • The system is used by over 80% of our users instead of the usual online forms.
  • Fees have always been low, especially helpful for a small department of 3 members. Always reliable and affordable.
Microsoft is a really great tool for databases though its biggest drawback is that it is really difficult to share the data via the web. Caspio helps by not only mimicking databases, views (similar to queries) and forms for entering data, but also allows for online reports. Creating web pages and being able to place it within our own website pages is great.
For a quick platform to be able to capture, edit, show data at a very reasonable price it is great. Caspio allows the data be shared across the web, giving everybody access or to only some by using the authentication feature. The ability to work from anywhere with just a computer and online access is a really great feature.
