Quick Base software


Quick Base is an application development platform that enables people to build business applications without coding. The platform is cloud-based and accessible on any browser or mobile device.

Users can build apps on Quick Base by selecting a template, uploading an existing spreadsheet or starting from scratch and building out tables, forms and records with point-and-click actions. Users can create automated workflows and “triggers” that add or update data on any Quick Base app based on actions that happen elsewhere.

Quick Base offers integrations with several other cloud solutions, including Salesforce, NetSuite, Gmail and Box via pre-built app connectors. Security and governance features include granular roles and permissions, enterprise user management, compliance with stringent compliance standards and enterprise physical and data security practices.

The Quick Base report builder generates customizable reports from a drag-and-drop editor, plus report subscriptions and sharing options.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    Pros

    As a portfolio manager, Quickbase allows me to access a snapshot of my team's portfolio with a click of a report.

    Cons

    The filters in the CRM can get confusing at times. I have to constantly check and uncheck the filters to ensure I'm selecting the correct option.

    Easy to use, useful reports.

    Pros

    I am a new user on Quickbase. I have gone through some of the tutorials and have done some updating to the contracts we store in QB. So far the tutorials have been easy to understand.
    As I use the program I hope to find other ways to make use of this software, it appears to be able to do a lot of things. I love being able to edit from the grid, it's a great way to see the big picture and edit errors.

    Cons

    It's a bit more complicated that some other programs I have used. Not everything is intuitive, but once a file is created it's very easy to change.

    Quickbase has a lot of potential and power, but is possibly a steep investment

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support

    It allowed us to replace an old program that was obsolete and no longer supported by the original software developer, and streamline our company's data/workflow needs. However, we have to put up with system quirks we can't afford to fix.

    Pros

    Quickbase has some flexibility, it can hold a good amount of data, you can set user controls for different users, and it can be customized to fit your company's needs. You can build apps from scratch or find apps others have developed and incorporate them into your system. You can do custom reports for your company reports or data collection, and save these reports in a spreadsheet format. You can filter your reports as well. It's based on laymen's programming language. They have pretty good customer service.

    Cons

    Quickbase is expensive, especially the more users you have. Some features require paying a higher price each month. Quickbase's biggest downfall is if you have the app(s) customized to do something in your organization, i.e. barcode scanning or advanced reservation capabilities, then that section of the app will have advanced programming language that you might not be able to edit. Our company doesn't have app programmers, so since our app was customized, to make significant changes we'd need to shell out big bucks to one of their third-party developers, or we'd need to have a staffer who could make changes. However, different companies have different workflows, so there have been instances where even Quickbase customer support couldn't make a change to what the third-party developer created, so your own company's programmer might even be at a loss. This was very frustrating for our company since we were led to believe we'd invest more money upfront and then just pay to maintain the software and have the support we needed so the app would grow with our company, not end up costing more if we needed changes. If you're a big corporation with lots of money, this is probably the way to go, but if you're a small company you might want to think carefully before investing in Quickbase for anything requiring customization.

    Easy to use if you know access, and the fact that you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection is great. We use it to let our stores at different locations access customer information that is shared.

    Cons

    You need to have a base knowledge of databases. The software is not drag and drop. Overall great product though.

    Pros

    I can not deny that it has been a very useful tool. It made our financial management easy and organized.

    Cons

    When we needed help, it was very hard to get someone from Intuit on the phone and it took long to get answers for our questions.

    Quick Base is a useful and reliable all-in-one development platform that helps businesses and organizations collect, track and manage information in an efficient way.

    Pros

    The software offers all sort of management solutions within and between organizations like document storage, optimizing recruitment, managing financial data and more. It even has a stable pre-built marketplace and third party integrations.

    Cons

    All solutions are very useful however when you need help, calling Intuit is a bit of pain. It takes time for a representative to pick up. Nevertheless, if you are patient, you can rely on their guided tutorial courses instead.

    The software can be made HIPAA compliant and we were able to gather data from it in another form. Those were the top 2 benefits.

    Pros

    The customization capabilities are impressive. You can create pretty much anything using this software, and what's even more impressive is that you can gather data using this software. I used it to create satisfaction surveys (both internally and externally) and it proved to be an invaluable tool in that sense. Additionally, this software proved to be a fantastic asset with maintaining patient portals, employee profiles, etc.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, profiles (as easy as they are to create) are very easy to delete and screw up. You can manipulate security access and such, but if someone makes a wrong move and deletes a profile (or worse, a FIELD), you're in trouble. ALL of that data will be lost if that happens. It would be nice to have an automatic backup of some sort just in case, but we did not find that to be an option in our testing and use of the product. There are a few odd quirks, as well -- for instance, you may have to create relationships that are multi-faceted or "backwards" to get profiles to "talk" to each other. Sometimes that feature is not as intuitive as you might hope.

    While it does integrate with Quickbooks desktop version, we often ran into sync issues. We are now on Quickbooks online and it integrates seamlessly.

    Flexibility is key with quickbase, you can literally build out anything you need, with the caveat that it will be manual and you might hit glitches/bugs that make the user experience more difficult until fixed.

    Pros

    It is SO flexible! It allows us to create any report, view, or feature we need as a company. Allows us to pull different data in different ways.

    Cons

    It flexibility is also it's downside as we have to make all of these changes manually. This can sometimes, very often, be time consuming and forces a few of us to work late hours in order to meet the demands of leadership.

    I am not a developer, but Quick Base has enabled me to set up databases for users within our organization that have been widely used over many years.

    Pros

    You don't have to be a programmer to create a database in Quick Base. But if you are a programmer, Quick Base offers many sophisticated options.

    Cons

    The "development sandbox" is not a true sandbox, because changes are not easily promoted to production. Licenses are considered expensive, so we have to limit the number we provision at our company.
