Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

It started being used in our Studios Engineering group only. We managed IP addresses, daily work tasks, financial responsibilities and were even able to gather metrics on hardware failures. After our recent re-org the financial team has expanded on our usage to include the procurement team. They have set up an instance that allows engineers to request parts and quotes through a Quickbase page.
  • Tracking how many failures of parts over a given time.
  • A centralized location where IP addresses can be stored and requested.
  • The ability to request purchases without the requester being able to bypass a mandated process.
  • I have yet to come across anything that Quickbase has struggled to handle.
We have. There have been many tools built including a simple tool I built myself with very little guidance. I feel that this is what makes QuickBase so useful.
  • Excel
I can't think of anything similar other than Excel and the ease of use of QuickBase far outweighs Excel.
I have very little training with QuickBase and I was able to quickly and easily build several tools that are used on a daily basis by my team. This makes it much easier for me to manage my team and they don't have to spend an inordinate amount of time tracking issues.
  • Improving our ability to drive insights from our data
  • Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
Simple and straightforward, which means I will take the little effort is required in order to keep the application up-to-date.
Financials. The ability to embed quotes easily into a web-based system.
