Technical support is easier to reach by the chat function instead of phone.

Review for Caspio!

2018-04-25

Pros

It is pretty easy to generate reports and it could be done by anyone on the team as it has almost no learning curve.

Cons

Just a bit difficult when you're accessing the application for the first time as it has so many things.

Simply awsome

2012-06-18

Since then I have designed, built and deployed well over 100 databases for non-profit organizations, government agencies and private companies.

Pros

I have also created smartphone applications and stand-alone programs.

Cons

Frankly, it's difficult for me to find anything about Caspio that I don't like. The product is secure, priced right and full of very cool features which I've often relied upon. It would only be better if Caspio actually clicked my mouse for me!

Great potential, but stay away if you're not an enterprise client

2018-07-09

Pros

- Basic database builder tools have more built-in options than similar software, so it's easier and faster to build more complex setups - If you don't know code, the interface and logic is very close to MS Excel, so the learning curve isn't too bad - Easy to embed and publish applications - Has an unlimited app user model (though not administrators), which is superior to other database app builders that limit user capabilities and charge based on users.

Cons

Basic paid plans have no access to APIs, Zapier, or automation/importing, which is high for the base plan compared to similar apps.

Caspio Bridge Second to None

2015-05-26

Not only is their PaaS (Platform as a Service) feature rich and extremely reliable but it is only surpassed by their customer service.

Pros

Their product is extremely feature rich. Very reliable Can't say enough about their stellar customer service.

Cons

The only standard feature which is on my wish list for them is structured report print output.

Caspio used to in a cold case homicide to organize massive unstructured data

2019-10-30

Given the power of the Caspio platform and my experience with the product, within 6 hours, I had a functioning portal that enabled us to manage a large amount of unstructured data fully deployed.

Pros

Caspio was the perfect platform by which to organize a massive amount of unstructured data while Apprentice University helped the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department attempt to solve a 14-year old cold case homicide.

Cons

I did have to find an alternative solution to create an X-Y scatter plot as the Caspio tools fell short of my needs in this case, but otherwise, there was nothing I disliked about the platform for this application.

Excellent foundation for applications

2017-04-16

After a couple of weeks of learning curve to become familiar with the terminology, we quickly configured 2 applications. The Online Live Training was the best of any product we have ever purchased.

Pros

Pricing is very attractive as unlimited database size or number of end users. API Set is good.

Cons

Caspio is lacking Scheduled Tasks, so we had to use their API Set to set up some tasks external to Caspio

Recommendations to others considering Caspio

There is a 2-week learning curve, and then it all slots into place. So budget 2 weeks of learning, and practice before you really start on your actual application. Take the online live training sessions - no cost - and use the Live Chat a lot - also no cost.

Definitely not NO CODE, add-ons kill value, good for basic apps.

2018-07-13

Quick "basic" web app and form creation.

Pros

Basic apps and workflows are pretty easy and intuitive.

Cons

Most workflows and apps I have built or needed required some functionality that had to be "custom coded" with javascript.

Saved our team!

2018-12-07

I'm sure there's other applications, but we've loved it for this.

Pros

We were using a small online database app for our scheduling team to have a searchable directory of 100+ clinicians by speciality. That website suddenly shut down and we had to scramble to rebuild. Caspio, found during a late night search, not only saved our team but added huge improvements over the previous software. Love it.

Cons

If you haven't built databases before, it might be hard the first time. Plenty of years of toying with stuff like this though and I had it up and running in a few hours.

Great product, expensive for what you can do.

2017-06-11

Great database, you can make almost anything you want.

Pros

-It works great -Easy to learn, takes maybe 2 weeks to learn, it's not as easy as using email but you can build very great stuff with it.

Cons

-Support is difficult because you have to explain with chatting what the problem is, try that with a database, it's just really difficult, yes you can give them permission to access your database and help you out but they don't really do it.

Definitely not "no-code", but still low-code and very powerful

2019-10-31

I felt very empowered with Caspio, but kept running into walls. I don't know Javascript or HTML so anything code-related that wasn't laid out exactly within a tutorial was frustrating to tackle. I also struggled to build out a front-end that looked good and tied to the datapages I was building, and the templates Caspio provided me still required that I knew web development to get running, and I did not know how to customize them. I did appreciate that pages could be easily embedded within Wordpress or other website builders. If I knew how to code, I would definitely use Caspio though. It gets thing up and running sooo fast. Using as a base for the backend is a great idea as it is 100% customizable. In that case I would totally recommend.

Pros

It is 100% customizable, and there are tutorials for just about everything. The community forums are also active, with Caspio support actively participating. Professional Services seemed very capable and able to do just about anything for you if you needed it.

Cons

For just about everything I wanted to do there was some need for a "custom" solution, and I was heavily dependent on my account manager who was always ready to refer me to Professional Services for even simple integrations.

Caspio Implementation Review

2019-01-08

We have produced several excellent, complicated applications with Caspio, using a 2-person team.

Pros

Many easy to use features, simple "point and click" setup, excellent training, online explanation videos, and live technical chat

Cons

Very many features - so best to have a brief consult with Caspio to get started in the best direction

2017-12-11

Pros

For me learning how to use caspio was very easy but what I loved the most was the way it integrated with my website

Cons

Not a lot, I don't like the fact that you have to access another software to build forms on the database.

Almost Instant Gratification...!

2012-06-15

We were astounded at the possibilities and potential of what we could do with Caspio. We needed a lot of support at the beginning (being non-developers) and we got it every step of the way! Caspio has not only fabulous support, but tremendous patience :) We were able to create all the fillable forms and databases we needed to flesh out the intangible (idea) to the tangible (website).

Pros

Once we got familiar with HTML and some programming, it all became so much easier - instant in fact!

Cons

Early on, being non-developers, sometimes it was difficult to imagine what we could do, having little exposure. We relied heavily on the ready made apps to understand and imagine the potential. Then Caspio stepped in to help us customize.
