Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

QuickBase is being used to track our new business process.
  • You don't need to be a programmer or IT person to work with QuickBase.
  • Online documentation is readily available.
  • The Empower annual gatherings are great to network, see what others are doing with QuickBase and especially see what is over the horizon.
  • A simple request I've made for several years and still nothing has been done. When a report is run have the ability to move from page to page at the top of the report. Currently it only appears at the bottom of a report which requires a user to scroll to the bottom of a report to move forward or backward or select a specific page of the report.
Yes, 1 application has saved an estimated 3-4 staff.
Access can't handle the volume and is too unstable for large databases.
  • 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
As a citizen developer who also has trained several other citizen developers, QuickBase is so logical that no IT help is required.
All our applications are constantly being updated. As users see what QuickBase can and does do for them they ask "can QuickBase do this or that?" and the answer I find is YES.
If you have many spreadsheets to track processes, inventory, anything at all, you can consolidate all that info into QuickBase which makes it easier for users to update and managers to see real-time information. No more gathering the spreadsheets on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to create a summary report. It's always there and current.
