A low-code platform for creating apps quickly and connecting work activities, but it needs a modern UI and better connectivity with other platforms
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "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."

How has it helped my organization?

For us, it's very helpful for low-code development. Different leaders and employees are able to go in and create their own apps and connect their work activities. It has been really helpful for that. We don't have to constantly go out into the software for developing a new solution or workflow. It gives the employees a little bit more freedom to own the work that they're doing.

What is most valuable?

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For where we're currently, it's a very valuable solution. As we continue to scale, there are definitely other platforms that will be a little bit more beneficial, but where we're currently, it makes a lot of sense for the work that we're doing. I'm pretty happy with the platform. Down the pipeline, Salesforce is something that we might potentially move towards, but at the moment, QuickBase serves our needs. As we grow into a more enterprise, Salesforce could be something that would be really beneficial for us.

Currently, we have about 150 employees who are using the application each and every day. Each department and everyone is utilizing it. We use it for different things, such as our CRM, our help desk ticketing, HR function, etc. It touches every entity of the company.

How are customer service and support?

Their support is definitely very helpful. They've been amazing. Whenever I reach out, it's been constant communication. They try to help us find the right solution. They just take their time with us through the process and really understand our needs. They've been awesome.

How was the initial setup?

It was pretty straightforward. They do provide training as well. It's called QuickBase University. Within that, they have modules where you can go in and learn how to create your different apps, how to modify your workflow, and push things into a sandbox for testing and then push them to the development as well. That has been really great for us. Being able to work with the QuickBase customer success team has been really beneficial for us. It has helped us learn more about the product and make sure that we're utilizing all the capabilities in an efficient manner.

In terms of the implementation strategy, before I arrived here, it was more of just trying to test it out and learn what you can actually do with it. There wasn't a whole strategy behind deploying different apps. Since I came on board, we standardized a process for creating apps so that we don't have apps that are created without understanding how they drive the mission of the company. That is an added bonus for those who are currently utilizing the app.

What about the implementation team?

Most of its implementation was done in-house. At the moment, we are consulting with QuickBase to see how we can align the apps more effectively. That's just because we didn't have that prior knowledge or real understanding of the capabilities. So, we are doing a restructuring of what we're currently doing.

For maintenance, we have a few people who are QuickBase experts, and they are maintaining and consulting the solution at this moment. We have about 10 people for that.

What was our ROI?

Anytime you're deploying any type of software application, there will be some type of return on investment. As we continue to scale and reorganize our apps, we'll see a greater return on investment that will then also increase productivity because everything will be able to talk together in a seamless fashion.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is probably about 300 per license per person. There is just the licensing cost. There are no additional costs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not a part of the conversation. This was bought before I came on board.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone looking to implement this product is to just sit down with customers and map out the process and the strategy, not only for the short term but also for the long term. From there, they should do a gap analysis in terms of where they are and where they are trying to go. It can definitely get them where they need to be. That's a part of working with a solution like this.

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
