Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

We mostly use Quick Base for project management but have apps that do parts ordering, purchase order requests, equipment tracking and delivery scheduling, contractor license management and many more. Quick Base provides us the tools needed to manage many areas of the day to day tasks.
  • Rapid deployment of apps
  • Intuitive and easy to use
  • Do not have to be a programmer to build apps
  • Can be linked to other software to push or pull data
  • Mobile capabilities, of which I use today
  • Feature to map an app and then build from that diagram
  • Reverse table lookups and relationships to pull child data to the parent
  • Better security features to excludes apps and users from some of the base security settings
I feel that we have apps that are long-term as well as disposable one-time use apps. Because of the speed of development and times when those last minute projects pop up, I have been able to spin up an app in as little as 30 minutes to address the needs of the project and meet the reporting and notifications requirements of the stakeholders.
I have not personally reviewed any other programs but I am being asked to review Microsoft Power Apps.
Most citizen developers do not necessarily understand database structure or table to table relationships. I myself am not a programmer by trade but have worked with databases so this was not a huge struggle for me once I got into the meat of Quick Base and started developing apps.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Improving collaboration across one or more teams
  • Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
Yes. We have been able to achieve our goals as well as to convert many processes from Excel sheets to a streamlined process that allows the entire team to work and collaborate at the same time.
My first experience with Quick Base was being handed a project program and a previously created application to modify to fit the needs of the program. This added a degree of difficulty since this was my first time not only using the program but also building an app. I was more than successful in being able to not only modify but also adding many new processes into the same app.
I honestly have not found any scenario where Quick Base cannot replace or enhance any process. As with any issue, defining the process and the needs takes longer sometimes than actually spinning up the app.
