Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

Our program developed apps to automate a workflow across a distributed team and manage the application deployment process. This includes obtaining real time operational metrics, processes to manage exceptions, management of multiple
environments, centralized tape library, contacts & management reporting.
  • 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.
  • 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
Within my work stream I was able to model a workflow and develop a Quick Base application to replace a very manual execution process. The overall process was optimized and provided improved, accurate reporting metrics. As the program expanded, extensions to the app were made to manage & report on new tasks added to the workflow.
A centralized library in Quick Base was created to manage media received from external stakeholders. Prior to this, there were multiple Excel spreadsheets in different locations making it very difficult to determine the status.

Reports can be generated very rapidly in a very dynamic environment compared to MS Excel. The use of customized dashboards makes it easy to share information with other team members.
