Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

I use Quick Base in a number of ways. One is to make reservation requests to rent my vacation rental at the Mana Kai Maui. Another use is to load into it the NAICS data, which enables tagging records and makes sorting and selecting a lot easier than in a spreadsheet. Another use has been to identify job skills required by product managers to be able to succeed. Another is tracking the status of multiple chapters and videos for my Wiley book entitled "Successful Product Design and Management".
  • Ease of configuration
  • Ease of making enhancements
  • Rapid report writing
  • Helping database managers understand how Quick Base's relational database features work and can be set up.
Yes, like in the examples mentioned before. I wanted to be able to flag records, sort, select and build custom reports quickly. Quick Base enables that. Before Quick Base, I used File Maker Pro but since File Maker Pro was not cloud-based, Quick Base fit my needs. I also wrote, deployed and reported on Oracle employee's satisfaction survey.
Microsoft Access: Nearly impossible to use.
MySQL: Requires a great deal of training and knowledge.
File Maker Pro: Until recently a lack of cloud usage.
All spreadsheets: Hard to do sorts and selects, plus report writing.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Improving our ability to drive insights from our data
  • Improving collaboration across one or more teams
  • Solving a specific business challenge
  • Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
I have been able to accomplish all of these outcomes.
It just works. For example if I needed a new view or report, it was easy to go in and do it.
Anyplace where a quick to create and use database is useful. Frequently to replace error-prone spreadsheets. I have used it, for example, to provide a place for questions for my Wiley book. I have also used it to identify sized and target markets. Before Salesforce, I used it for multiple salespeople to track sales leads through the sales cycle.
