Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

At People's Bank nc, we purchased quickbase as a way to mange our many ongoing projects, but we quickly figured out that the software is very flexible and found other uses for it. The apps are built by myself and can be used by anybody.
  • It's very easy for the end user to learn how to use the software.
  • It's very easy to learn how to create custom apps and quickbase offers plenty of training.
  • It's very flexible, almost any app can be built for any purpose.
  • I wish it had better HTML integration for more customization options.
  • Quickbase can do just about anything, but you might have to upgrade your plan or buy extra plugins for it.
  • More advanced app building can be difficult to diagnose problems.
Quickbase custom apps are quick and easy to get developed and pushed out. Some apps can be made and ready to use with in a few hours or a few weeks for the more complicated apps.
We was so impressed by the quickbase demo that we didn't look anywhere else
Quickbase is easy enough for a non technical person to develop simple apps and reports, but I've found it easier to develop the core functionality of the app myself and allow the non technical user to have the ability to make changes and fine tune the small stuff like field names and reports.
  • Improving collaboration across one or more teams
Quickbase apps are easy to update, I do have one app that Ive built that requires constant update requests from the department that i built the app for. If it's a visual or naming update, the department have the ability and know how to do it, but for functionality updates I usually update the app for the department.
QuickBase is great for project management or task management. I wouldn't attempted to use QuickBase as a data mining tool.
