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.

The reporting tools were a challenge for the majority of my team to use.

Simple Platform - Limited Applications Available

Pros

The platform is simple. It encourages organizations to use single sign-on for access to many of the tools needed during the work day. These tools can consist of booking travel, reporting expenses, hotel website, airline websites, file sharing tools, 401k information, benefits, links to where policies are shared, internal scheduling, etc. Lots of positive notes on the ease of use side, however, not all applications are supported.

Cons

The platform itself is well built, however, the improvements on allowing many more solutions to be integrated on this platform could be better. It has served our company just fine for now though.

A little complicated

Pros

I like that it is online and can be accessed anywhere with internet!

Cons

I found it a little complicated to use. There are almost too many functions/filters/reports that it was a little overwhelming to learn. It didn't organize in the most basic ways.

Poor experience as a Public user

Pretty poor, at least from the end user perspective. Those who are administrators to this system don't seem to confident with it either.

Pros

As an end user on a public state government site, once logged into system, forms are easy to fill out when they appear.

Cons

I'm not sure how much is Quick base Octo, but this system seems more cumbersome for what it is. The state government uses this system for inputting stormwater information, and it is a big pain to do. Sometimes the correct sections don't appear until after you "submit", then you have to go back and redo. Everything should appear at once. The logic is off. Also, it is easy to miss buttons and some input options. It is also really slow.

Best tracking for not for profit activities

Pros

The ability to generate reports with or without SQL is a great advantage filtering is very responsive and in all very intuitive with data

Cons

Can't complain much but there is a learning curve to this software and one needs to try their hands on every feature to fully grasp its functionality- but with the understanding comes the reward of better results

The best application to build your business empire.

Pros

QuickBase helps the users to create a workspace easily. The users could do this even without any knowledge of coding. The interface is very simple and neat. This application can be especially helpful and easy for users who are well equipped with Excel. Though initially there shall be some trouble in getting what you require, a little research can help you to build a great application. It is completely worth the money that is being spent on it.

Cons

The support team is not very efficient. The only provided method of contacting them is through emails, which take several days for a response. Other queries need to be dealt with the Solution Providers.

Helpful to keep things organized

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.

Big Potential

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

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.

Great Cloud Base Database

Pros

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.

Get your data captured and stored at ease by using the Quick base

Pros

Data including the very minor details are displayed, helping the management to make good decisions. You can create a report very quickly and these reports get send to the concerned staff automatically. You can customize the application according to your requirements. The import feature helps you enter bulk data. The application is synchronized, and whatever edits you make will be instantly done. You can customize the layout, the application has an easy to use interface. You get email notifications based on your invoices, delivery, and other updates. It does not take a tech-savvy person to work on the application.

Cons

The graphics capabilities are less when compared to other applications. The absence of regular audit trails.

Always more to learn, but always more than enough to create and execute successful projects!

Pros

Allows first-time users to start generating and designing projects right away, but also encourages deeper learning and exploration to discover more functionality and individual design. The learning curve is rewarding in that you can start creating right away, but you are concretely rewarded for however much time you put into training/experimenting by getting deeper into this holistic, robust platform and creating, as a result, projects more fine-tuned to your specifications.

Cons

For such an advanced and responsive software platform, the "look and feel" can be rather plain, even institutional, which can work against the creativity-fostering environment one wants to create within QuickBase for individual and team projects.

My Quick Base Experience

Still, I consider Quick Base as a reliable software for any type of business.

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 for all your Project Management Needs!

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.

A program that houses all of our client information in one place - awesome!

We use it daily. All of our projects are managed through the system and connected with the client. It allows for each person in our company everything that we have completed and billed for, for each of our clients. All in one place, which is key!

Pros

There is quite a bit of flexibility built-in which allows us to customize reports on the data that is most important for each manager in the company.

Cons

There are some limitations/restrictions that don't allow for as much customization as we would like. At times we have to hire a programmer to help us customize features to get more out of the data that we have stored in there.

Highly customizable! But only if you've got someone on the team willing to put in the work...

Pros

I went to an event where different companies showcased how they use quickbase and how's it's changed their workflow for the better. It can plug in with 3rd party applications and do inventory, pull reports automatically, really awesome stuff!

Cons

My team was trying to use QB for project management within a Marketing team--it's not rocket science. However, my team didn't have anyone technical enough to customize the product for us on the fly. We enlisted a single person consultant, but after the consultant's project was complete, we didn't have a user with advanced knowledge to assist us in any changes. The product wasn't intuitive enough for us to customize ourselves, and found that over time, team members wouldn't collaborate on a project within QB because they found it "too difficult" or the interface wasn't intuitive.

I believe the software could be helpful for someone with the write skill set. I'm not that person.

Pros

I like the ability to customize the software into whatever you want it to be. It can be the one tool you could use for your business if you spend time doing it.

Cons

To customize it yourself you need to have a bit of technical knowledge I wasn't there. I wish I could use it.
