Our clients have used this to transform almost every business process, including the following:
I have been using the solution for twelve years.
We have not encountered any stability issues. QuickBase is very stable.
Technical support is OK. However, it is much better to work with qualified service personnel who understand your specific implementations and process goals.
We have used several other systems. We switched because QuickBase is so fast and flexible. It can keep up with our ever-changing processes. The total cost of ownership is an extremely good value.
It is very simple to start. The first application can be running in an hour. However, it is robust enough to handle very complex, business critical applications when the design/development is done by experts.
Pricing is very reasonable. QuickBase will negotiate with large enterprise accounts to ensure a good ROI for all.
It is subscription based, which we like as it is good for cash flow. You only pay for a user once and then they have access to as many apps as they want.
We have evaluated far too many platform tools to list. Overall, QuickBase is one of the best values as long as you are OK with having a standard user interface for the most part. In some ways, this is actually a plus, as it is easier to train. For this small tradeoff, they give you so much speed and flexibility. It is a real game changer.
Before you build anything business critical, make sure you work with a QSP. Be ready to roll up your sleeves, as a good app build forces you to define your process if it is not already nailed down.
In my experience, it is never 100%. You have to allow time and budget for making some tweaks along the way as the development forces you to make process decisions.
