Overall Satisfaction with QuickBase

I like Quickbase because it provides a very flexible toolbox for designing the forms that users use to input and manage data. It also allows us to send out reports on that data on a specified interval, which my higher management team really likes. Users can quickly and easily learn how to use their views which facilitates buy-in during the adoption and training phase.
  • Cloud-based, which allows remote workers to enjoy using the same product that they use when in the office.
  • Consistency - the base platform hasn't changed in significant ways that cause user confusion.
  • Ability to export data for alternative analyses.
  • Cost. We have trimmed our license count down substantially, lower than we would like, in order to reduce costs.
  • Slight learning curve on getting used to the report configuration page.
We have been able to build and deploy very custom tailored applications for very niche applications in our organization.
Smartsheet is nowhere near as capable as Quickbase in some areas, but it also costs much, much less.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Improving our ability to drive insights from our data
  • Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
Application updates are always possible but sometimes there is a bit of a re-learning curve as we dig into areas of the application config that have not been viewed in many months. Luckily it is not easy to "break" the application when making modifications.
More suited for manual data entry, not so much for integration with automated products/processes.
