We performed a comparison between QuickBase and ServiceNow based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about ServiceNow, Microsoft, Salesforce and others in Rapid Application Development Software.
"It is low-code. We are able to go in and create apps quickly. It is very helpful for the size of our company. We're a mid-size company, and at this moment, we don't need anything externally. We don't have to go out and consult a consulting firm to build something from the ground up. So, the ease of that and being able to get development quickly up and running has been good for us."
"It's great to do statuses or to review tasks."
"A workflow automation platform that's reliable, performs well, and has good reporting and integration."
"The solution has very good automation tools."
"It can scale well if you are managing IT assets."
"Great that it's knowledge-based and you can use the flows in ServiceNow."
"I like that in ServiceNow creating workflows is simpler than that in HP Service Manager. Also, I really like the customization feature. It allows us to customize the service portal and permits us to do a lot of customization per business needs."
"If you stick to the out-of-the-box solution, it's an easy setup."
"We have found the service easy to use, although, we have ended up customising a lot of parameters."
"Its UI needs improvement. They should improve it and make it a little bit more modern. We should also be able to have more real-time information that connects with other software platforms. It has an open API, but it doesn't always connect with some of the other platforms that we would like to utilize. These are probably two of the biggest things for us, and hopefully, they will keep ensuring that in the future, they continually build QuickBase to be a little bit more efficient in that regard."
"The pricing of the solution could be better. It's a bit high."
"The licensing needs to be divided into tiers in order to attract lower-level users."
"If you have advanced questions, technical support often doesn't know the answer."
"The asset management application could be improved. They have a lot of the infrastructure built, but it does not come with already made compatibility with some of the most popular vendors, such as Cisco and Microsoft. You have to fix it yourself."
"I know that discovery tools are not meant to be simple, but somehow, if they could make it more simple and robust, that would be great."
"There is a need to learn scripting because as in the case of all the ITSM tools, scripting is needed for customization. If you're not very comfortable with scripting, then you may feel that you cannot do everything in ServiceNow without learning scripting."
"Licensing costs are very high."
"This solution needs to be improved for global use. Currently, it's very oriented to the processes and needs of the US customer base, like their compliance solution or GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance), and not so much for customers from other parts of the world. Some users may like the things that ServiceNow is improving, but those are very oriented to users based in the United States and Europe."
