Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

We currently use Quickbase to manage our portfolio of projects, manage research and development efforts, and we have even used it to develop an internal manufacturing and procurement system. These applications allow us to share information between departments, collaborate on projects, and to view statuses at all levels. The ease of developing within Quickbase has allowed us to develop custom tailored applications that provide immediate improvements to productivity, collaboration, and resource utilization.
  • Easy to develop - Good base templates for project management
  • Improves collaboration
  • Eliminates multiple spreadsheets
  • Standardizes processes
  • Mobile application is available but needs improvement
  • Pricing structures can be confusing if you do not have a good account representative
  • Must be online to access and enter data
We currently have multiple production applications in place, and we are developing more each day.
We reviewed multiple project management applications, and ultimately selected Quickbase due to the ease of customization for our business processes. This allows us to capitalize on our internal strengths and knowledge. Additionally the system can be used for so many different types of applications.
Applications can be simply built with standard templates, and customizing these templates is easy. As you work to improve the user experience (UE) for your team members you may find that there are customizations that are not possible through the standard interface. Luckily there are multiple Quickbase solutions providers that can build anything.
  • 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 find that we are constantly updating and adding to the functionality of our Quickbase applications. It allows for an AGILE development methodology, and enables us to develop as the applications are in use. We release new functionality and improvements on a weekly basis.
Quickbase is an extremely powerful tool for building databases. It is more suited to this task than MS Access ever was as it is online and built for collaboration. If you are looking for a powerful enterprise level WMS or ERP you will need to develop a custom application. This may or may not suit your organization. The Quickbase partners are excellent at developing any vision that you have for the application.
