Easy to use tool with huge possibilities

We were able to produce some nice reports along the way, making sure upper management knew the progress of the project the whole time.

Pros

Easy to develop reports and quickly display them on the 'dashboard'.

Cons

I would like to have more BI tools but that's not what QB is intended to do.

Quickbase is highly customizable

2020-04-13

Quickbase is a good platform for mass creation of work orders or tasks, reporting on high levels and tracking work orders.

Pros

This software can be customized for your companies specific needs, can generate work orders and dispatch them, can be accessed via mobile app or web browser and has completely customizable reporting.

Cons

Unlike other work order generating platforms, this does not have a chat feature for the person work orders are dispatched to and the dispatcher integrated within the system.

Quickbase helps our project manager with all info in one convenient location.

Pros

We hired a Quickbase Expert who worked with us to create a time tracking and project management portal that is perfect for our specific needs.

While it does integrate with Quickbooks desktop version, we often ran into sync issues.

QuickBase makes converting from spreadsheets easy!

2015-06-01

Helped to move our Custom Implant line from an antiquated software and combination of excel documents to an easy to use project management platform.

Pros

Easy to customize interface along with easy to create reports / charts

Cons

Currently limited in connectivity to legacy systems so this requires customized solutions that are less intuitive than moving from spreadsheets to QuickBase

Very pleased with QuickBase for nine years

2015-06-04

We've used it to provide a jointly accessible portal for the projects we do for our customers, with standardized PM templates, including the ability to display a MS Project Gantt chart, action items, document sharing, risk tracking, contact list, design metrics, etc.

Pros

1. Easy for a novice to customize a template app to meet his needs. 2.

Cons

My main complaint has been that the API doesn't give you enough access to the full capabilities - but that will soon be addressed in an upcoming release.

A Lot of Functionality and Options when Building on top of QB

2019-11-12

Has truly been excellent the majority of the time. Minor hiccups, like anything, along the way, but now we have a good plethora of applications and functionalities spread across a growing company and QB has adapted well and increased their response time with any issues identified.

Pros

Able to easily code alerting to employees based on alerts, allow them to manage assignments and tasks, keep track of their projects and schedule, and ultimately save our company money.

Cons

Reliability on services is sometimes difficult. If something breaks, you will need to understand what is broken and alert Quickbase. There is only so much you can troubleshoot before waiting on QB.

Easy and Efficient

2015-11-16

Quickbase is a very user friendly application. I have used in two process applications for my company. It doesn't require special advanced Software skills. It is very straight and simple.

Pros

If I have a question and ask the online support, I would get a reply within less than a day and they are most of the time with answers.

Cons

I would suggest a bit improved notification lists.

Quickbase transformed our business

2017-01-04

Our application has become our CRM, Project Management, and Operational tracking ad reporting software all built into one with a lot of automation and integration to boot!

Pros

The design of the interface is basic, but they're in the process of rolling out a new UI called Mercury that looks great.

Cons

Quickbase does not provide a ton of customer support. They rely on an incredible community of users and developers as well as approved Quickbase Solutions Providers (QSPs) that customers can contract with for help with building their applications. But if you're looking to go at it on your own, you will have to dig if you need help with something. As savvy of as Quickbase user I am, it took me three years before I even learned that I had an account manager at Quickbase.

If you really want to get the most out of Quickbase and learn all that it has to offer, a trip to their annual conference called Empower is a must.

The solution to (almost) anything

2015-01-14

We now use QuickBase for almost anything from small project management, internal support ticket systems, marketing campaign management, lead retrieval and event registration to large-scale in-product workflow.

Pros

No programming needed to create custom forms, databases and experiences. Easy reporting capabilities.

Cons

Learning curve for non-technical users. Easy enough that employees will start creating one-off applications to fit their exact needs.
