Overall Satisfaction with Quickbase

My previous organization used QuickBase in multiple departments to support cross-functional processes. The processes range from fixed asset management to salesforce automation to project management and resource allocation.
  • QuickBase is extremely flexible in helping you design a solution that maps to the process you are trying to automate. There are very few process issues that I've not been able to create a QuickBase solution to improve.
  • QuickBase has great reporting and dashboards that are easy to create and customize to help line managers visualize and manage the business.
  • QuickBase makes iterative system development possible and even easy.
  • QuickBase connects seamlessly with existing systems like salesforce.com.
  • Quick base automation capabilities have improved immensely in recent years, and I have been able to connect many systems and automate many processes that previously required manual imports.
  • QuickBase administration, particularly their legal department when negotiating a new account agreement, is quite difficult.
  • The QuickBase document management capabilities are ok, but could be improved.
  • QuickBase does not handle non-western letters and characters (I.e. Chinese or Japanese) well.
  • I'm grasping for areas of improvement. Honestly, I am able to make the QuickBase system do almost anything. It's that easy and flexible.
  • Quick base has allowed us to increase efficiencies across the organization, freeing up resources to focus on greater value work streams.
  • Quick base has improved access to data and data transparency.
Most “problems” with a process revolve around handoffs from one function to another. Quick base makes these handoffs easier with email alerts and easy exception reporting.
3 years ago, we were all 100% remote. We adapted our Quick base applications so that we could continue to meet business and customer requirements.
Our projects aren’t any more complex than “before”, but Quickbase has developed some great new connection (integration) tools and has greatly improved its pipelines capabilities. We can now integrate with most other systems and automate (via pipelines) many functions.
Unless you have a SQL server database attached to your SharePoint site, SharePoint is not even in the same league as QuickBase with regards to functionality.

Salesforce.com, verva crm, and service max are designed for specific processes within the customer resource management realm. You can customize those applications, but typically need a developer to do so. We build our own quick base apps for a lot less money.

Do you think Quickbase delivers good value for the price?

  • 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
We have achieved these outcomes many times over.
Absolutely...I've already added this info as QB strengths.
I'm not sure how to answer this question. I started as a "citizen developer" in the QuickBase environment but quickly became the QuickBase guru and have developed or helped develop all of the applications currently in use at the company.
Easy and quick development also translates into easy and quick enhancements. This is a huge strength of QuickBase. Because changes in QuickBase take minutes/hours instead of days/weeks with other systems, I regularly do enhancements on my heavily utilized applications.
We have used QuickBase for asset management, project management, resource management, salesforce automation, customer surveys, employee idea trackers, and salesforce iPad tools. All have been successfully deployed. I do think QuickBase is best at project management and probably less good at document management.
