Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

We use QuicBase primarily in our risk management department. We have a claims module for managing property and liability claims. We also have safety, environmental health, emergency management, and other modules. Some of them are set up for others in our company to access and input information such as submitting reports or making service requests.
  • Easy to develop new apps and tables - including linking tables and apps.
  • Easy to manage users and roles.
  • Easy to connect people throughout the organization and external stakeholders.
  • Would be nice if it were easier to plug-in html coding for customizations.
  • I would like an easy way to offer the apps I've developed for sale to others rather than just sharing them.
  • I'd like to see more advanced graphing and reporting features.
  • I'd like it to be easier to share content with non-users.
We have built all of our own custom apps and use most of the apps daily. I would like to grow our use of Quickbase but our technology department prefers SharePoint and has actively discouraged any other departments to use QuickBase.
Simply, QuickBase is customizable way beyond what others offer and much less expensive.
QuickBase is somewhat easy for a competent non-technical developer to get started. It does require more time and competence to build complex applications. Our IT department doesn't like it because we can solve our own problems quickly and easily and don't need them to develop products. As such, they are completely unwilling to support QuickBase or us and its use.
  • 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
I update our apps very regularly for things such as adding fields, making new tables, reports, subscriptions, notifications. I recently made a Risk Ledger table to track issues and how they are resolved. It took me less than 30 minutes and works great.
Quickbase is well-suited to fast app development. It is very useful for managing a variety of databases and integrating across apps. QuickBase is not as good at letting non-users interact without giving access to all people with the link.
