Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

We use QuickBase for project management and project accounting.
  • Revenue recognition
  • Project profitability
  • Project percent completion
  • Project management
  • Currency translation
  • Duplication of data entry
We have, but are still improving the applications.
Quick Base is much more flexible and robust. It's like comparing VisiCalc to today's Excel
Our apps were built by outside consultants but are maintained internally by finance and operations staff not IT
  • Improving our ability to drive insights from our data
  • Solving a specific business challenge
We view our current setup as a solid foundation that we are in the process of leveraging to reach these outcomes
It's as good as the person who builds the applications and maps the relational tables.

Using Quick Base

100 - Project managers, operations, finance
1 - No specific skills. I don't have an IT background but I have a basic understanding of databases and when I get an issue I can't resolve, I call on Quick Base support
  • Time keeping
  • Task completion
  • Project management
  • Nothing innovative yet
  • Dashboards for teams
  • Resource allocation
  • Profitability reporting
We thought about ceasing to use Quick Base and quickly realized we can't function effectively without it.
  • More accurate data
  • Easier to consolidate
