Overall Satisfaction with Stackby

Used primarily by me, but extending soon to the whole team. It allowed me to build a streamlined CRM that suited our needs. It's a great alternative to Airtable - has a very similar UI and is very simple to use. Perfect for setting up straightforward online relational databases. Amazing value for money compared with Airtable.

There are the occasional few kinks - can be fussy with data formatting and we had a few issues when straying from the beaten path of Zapier / Mailchimp, etc to more unusual competitors, but overall it's just difficult to beat the value for money and the development team seems pretty onto it.
  • Relational databases
  • Custom spreadsheet-like data storage
  • Import and export
  • You can back it up!!
  • Integration with PabblyConnect could be better
  • Better tracking of customer facing activity
  • Less forgotten contacts
  • $48 US per month saved in Airtable fees!
Airtable - better all round than Stackby but way more expensive (actually not all round - Stackby you can actually backup unlike Airtable)

Infinity - bought this and wished we hadn't. Its data structures and terminology are super-confusing and it's really hard to set up

Notion - not strong enough as a database but very lovely to look at!

Did Stackby live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Stackby go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Stackby again?

Yes

Great for simple relational databases that you can custom build for a small business, or a large business with not too many requirements to handshake with other systems. It's very quick and easy to build interlinked business systems with just Stackby.

If you're a corporate and can afford it, Airtable is still the leader. But Stackby is exceptionally good value for money and pretty useful for our little company!
