Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

We use QuickBase across the organization in a variety of ways. We inject various data feeds from different operation departments to provide generated reports and real-time visualizations and dashboards for business and technical insights and decisions. We have also created workflow applications enabling self-service and targeted notifications for lifecycle tasks. And QuickBase is used as an intake tool for change requests and technical enhancement details.
  • Lightening fast database design and table creation.
  • Easy to use graphing and reporting including distribution to interested parties.
  • Ample storage for tons of data.
  • The licensing model limits my ability to share cool apps and information portals with others. A tiered user licensing approach (viewers cost little, managers and creators may cost more) seems more logical to get a wider usage across the company without going broke.
  • Need improvements in cross application visibility to better correlate different collections of data.
Yes. Data driven application development has never been easier.
I learned QuickBase basics quickly and have a broad technical background. It is easy to educate business analysts on ways to quickly realize value add apps for the business, and non-technical business users love the ease of creating custom reports and forms.
  • 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
App use causes requirement updates which is good, that means the app is being used. I had to update by including new tables, new feeds and creating relational tables to make sense of the data. It went well, and my support team from QuickBase is always helpful.
QuickBase is:
  • Ill-suited for enterprise-level data analysis (aggregation and correlation across multiple apps).
  • Well suited for department-level solutions and quick to market reporting and graphs.
