Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

QuickBase is used across all departments in the business to assist with key KPI reporting and tracking as well as an operational tool for project management and tracking. Key use cases in our business for the application include risk management, IT work request recording, approval, scheduling and change board approval, internal audit tracking, client implementation project management and task allocation, departmental planning and tracking.
  • Easy importing facility from Excel which allows a transition from manual systems to the database system.
  • Easy to build dashboards of key business KPI information.
  • Easy to use even for non-technical individuals.
  • More user friendly tools for building complex dashboards would be useful. For example it can be quite difficult to group data items to calculate a total that can then be compared to another key metric.
  • Exporting dashboards as PDFs or into MS applications would be a good enhancement as currently I need to take screenshots and this isn't ideal.
  • Better defaulting of colour schemes related to the dashboards created would be good as I currently need to manually make changes as the same colour is being used to represent different data elements.
We have achieved this because it is easy to use and learn to use. There are also many default applications to chose from which saves time in creating from scratch. Although I must admit we have built pretty much all of our applications ourselves because we have specific requirements - this has been easy to do.
All of our current applications have been built by business users and not by IT. The application is user friendly, has good standard templates to choose from and it is easy to train new users to use the system without the need for a technical background. The dashboard creation and data importing services are particularly easy to work with.
  • 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
Very easy to update the application.
Quickbase is a great tool for relatively straightforward data analysis and reporting with very easy to use dashboard creation tools. For more complex analysis of the data it is quicker to export to Excel and work on it there.
