Features such as automated emails, workflows/business logic, and custom dashboards ensure access to real-time information, but the mobile app needs improvement.
What is most valuable?We have found from using Intuit QuickBase that it allows for very custom, time-consuming business processes to be transformed into a simple "app" or database without any coding.

What do you think of QuickBase?We struggled for several years with disparate databases for customers and prospects. Neither sales nor support staff were able to give the time needed to learn the other department's systems. After researching the many options, QuickBase seemed to give the most logical solution to our pressing CRM issues. And, its flexibility and multiple apps would allow us to add other workflow management schemes to our systems. We have been thrilled to have all our info in one place. It is so convenient for people who are traveling on company business to be able to see their customers' info without being tied to a local computer, and to be able to update that info on the fly. In the "old days" getting reports from the various systems required a lot of trial and error, specialized SQL statements…

What do you think of QuickBase?We have used Quickbase as a CRM solution for many years. We can quickly make changes to the application as the business needs change. The tool is easy to use especially for capturing the data from our staff. The one area that we struggle with on some occasions is the reporting.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Cost is less than $400/month I spend a lot of time improving on it. So if you put my time in the past 2 years on this product it would be close to $80,000 of my time.
