Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

Currently, Quickbase is being used by our IT software department. We have been using Quickbase for several years in the areas of project management, and as a communication tool to our field members and as a help desk knowledge base. We communicate to the field and they communicate to us via the integrated email functionality.
  • Quickbase is an easy to use, easy to set up tool that could be leveraged for any type of database storage. We use for IT project management, but it is scalable to be used across any and all areas of business.
  • Although Quickbase is easy to use and easy to set up, when you look at comparative software packages that are for help desk and project management tools, they are a little more intuitive when it comes to use. The thing that offsets that with Quickbase is the ease of customization.
We have achieved this in the area of project management. We use it extensively for that and continue to build on the infrastructure we have utilizing Quickbase.
We have looked at MangeEngine.
We built our pProject management tool with Quickbase as a group of software developers so it was relatively easy for us to accomplish. For the 'citizen developer' it would still be attainable, but may take a little more time to develop. Quickbase has a lot of nice tutorials or existing platforms to start from and customize from there, so that would be of a big help to end users without a development background.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Improving collaboration across one or more teams
  • Solving a specific business challenge
We have continually maintained and developed our project management application using quickbase tools. We have added new data fields, we have added email capabilities, we have merged data from one system into and out of Quickbase with relative ease. We are in constant drive to make this application better for our end users and us as an IT department.
I can only speak to what we use it for, but it has suited us very well in the project management area of IT. We control and track all of our IT projects with Quickbase, from the time a user inputs a project, to the time that project is completed and closed.
