Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

Quickbase is being used by our Education Department to register schools for field trips to our zoo and for outreach classes at the schools as well. We also allow teachers to register themselves online which takes a huge burden off of our staff's' shoulders and makes the registration process more efficient.
QuickBase allows one to custom design every aspect of one's application to suit our needs. They are always developing the program all of the time. Their tech support is fast and efficient as well which I find very rare.
  • Allows for creating as many fields as you need in an application.
  • Allows for flexibility with how fields work using formulas.
  • Tech support always answers you the same day and always helps you with difficulties and answers all questions fast and efficiently.
  • Easy to use. User-friendly. Formatting of forms is excellent.
  • Developing an on-demand calendar in DHTML.
  • Easier integration for use with a business website.
  • Expanding capabilities for external use outside of the business.
We have achieved what we wanted in our Education Department as far as streamlining our registration process [goes]. The biggest benefit has been the reporting end of this application is so useful. You can create any kind of report or chart in seconds. We could not run this part of our business efficiently without this level of report capabilities.
This is not for the beginner user. This is for intermediate or advanced users. It is user-friendly but you must have some computer knowledge. It takes time to build these applications but it is worth it due to the exact customization to fit one's needs. Requires mostly no IT help. Depends on what you are doing with the application.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Solving a specific business challenge
  • Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
It was a very easy to update and maintain my existing applications. Once you understand how it all works it is a breeze to maintain. I had to ask for help with Quickbase on some aspects such as developing formulas to make fields do what I want them to do. Formulas are the most difficult part of updating and maintaining applications but they have such fast and great tech help there are no worries.
Best suited for internal business use for tracking data and sales.
Works well with calendar scheduling internally.
Works well as a CRM
Works well for table to table relationships
Less useful with date and time scenarios for specific dates and time formats
Does not work well for resource allocations
Less useful for external data collection due to limited number of PAY_FOR users
