Overall : Happy to listen to my own clients say "Is it possible to change..." and 99% of the time it is a feature that Tadabase enables me to deliver in real time. In an era of constant change, platforms like these allow anyone to respond to customer needs almost immediately.
Pros : Tadabase enables very rapid prototyping of process improvement and automation for small businesses at a very reasonable rate. Unlike some of its competitors, Tadabase allows designers and admins to quickly deploy and improve apps on the run. I love how the app-design process is simple enough for beginners to quickly grasp the interface and logic behind it, while also offering more advanced features for those familiar with traditional web design. Their support team is very responsive and swiftly resolves issues both simple and complex.
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : Pricing scheme became unsustainable after surpassing a certain number of end-users. Most apps punish low-volume multi-user setups, while Tadabase is generous in its data and user quotas.
AMAZING!! Beyond excel, it's a blank canvas for ideas!
Overall : I think my pros and cons says almost everything. I hope they keep getting better more and more, focused on their mission to be the best custom database web builder.
Pros : Tadabase is amazingly simple! (it can get complex, if you want) We run a family business in custom clothing manufacturing business and I was always struggling to find an ERP or BPM software that would help my company to manage our production process. The thing is, I DIDN'T WANT to have to adjust all of our production workflow to fit into a third party software from a big company, which we'll have to spend hours learning and will be costly... nowadays, we have better ideas and need to be more fast and flexible, integrating with other apps and softwares. That was possible with Tadabase, which was amazing for me, who has no (or very little) coding skills. As far as I'm using it (almost 6 months now) I have already: 1) created an app to manage Human Resources files and terms (mainly because COVID forced us to stay away) - each employee has their own login and can access their payment info and download their files 2) created another app to manage our production process and help us to quickly close external services payments, such as sewing and screen printing partners 3) I'm creating now an app integrated with one client's server to receive instantly their production invoices, through Tadabase's API Rest Tadabase is becoming one main software for us! And their support is very professional and friendly.
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : Trello wasn't handling all of our SKU's, it was too slow to open images and move cards. Trello is fine if you work for projects, not for production management of many SKU's.
Very promising no-code app builder
Information Technology and Services, 1-10 employees
Overall : Our company's use of Tadabase has been extensive and we are using it in new and innovative ways each day. Our Information Services team who has transitioned our operation from using a competitive product, SharePoint, and Dropbox as solutions to share data are now contained within Tadabase. We have seen an increase in employee and vendor productivity by 23% because of the intuitive and easy to navigate front-end design that our team has implemented. Our Sales team has been able to respond to client interactions faster with the built-in notifications option where they receive either SMS message or Email Message or both. Lastly, our client end-users who access our newly designed Client Portals have been so impressed with their ability to access real-time data that is directly related to their account. The clients ability to see projects, billing, work orders, tasks, and scheduling in real-time has been a valuable asset to our services offerings.
Pros : In the beginning our use of the Tadabase solution was a bit slow as we needed to realign our processes and procedures to match this new platform. What was most impressive about this solution was the ease of being able to deploy a fully operational front-end without having to know how to code. We came from a competitor product that only offered a back-end, at a hefty price, and it was very limited. The pricing of this solution in comparison to other options on the market, makes it very viable for small businesses to be able to create database solutions with ease and in real-time. In today's business landscape having the right information at the right time is crucial and now with the increase of remote working and remote users it truly makes this product work every dollar.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : The Front-end interface that is fully customized, allowing you to create page layouts for every role you have in your business process. This feature along with the other ease of deployment features made this a very simple decision. Our priority is to provide best in class service to our clients, while being able to provide them with a simple easy to use client portal. In today's business world many clients are pushing businesses to offer online portals for them to be able to properly manage their accounts, pay bills, and request services.
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : Price was the major determining factor in our change. QuickBase is a powerful tool its limitations on providing multi user access made that product too expensive. QuickBase model is a per seat/per user charge which can make its cost prohibitive.
Overall : Overall, very positive. There is a support team and evolving set of documentation.
Pros : We came across tadabase by accident for our business. We were in the process of looking to convert our manual paper based systems for patient progress tracking, and had originally investigated the use of similar software (Knack). There was an A/B process, whereby we showed staff the two systems running our database in a non-customised manner. Our staff loved the flexibility of tadabase over knack, in particular the colour coding options and sorting. Inbuilt PDF generation was a huge bonus. Unlike Knack, which requires third party software, PDFs can be generated internally in Knack. We would have otherwise have had to employ a developer, but we have saved thousands of dollars by this alone. Another useful feature that we love is the ability to link files to an S3 bucket, saving massively on storage costs.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : Visual aesthetics and ease of use of software by our staff. Ability to customise domains and embed external calendars (such as outlook) without involving programmers etc is a huge leap forward for us.
Overall : I came across Tadabase while looking for a easy to use a database application to manage my real estate management company. From the time I found Tadabase until the time we had steamlined our entire application was less than 8 hours. We now use Tadabase for our internal operations as well as a portal for property owners to see the latest information on each building. The quotes I received from developers to build this exact same application we're now using was over $18,000 and 3 months! Hard to believe I almost went forward with it.
Pros : With the help of the simple and short video guides, I learnt the platform very quickly. The platform is blazing fast and support has been very responsive - within a few minutes. From the other platforms I've tested, Tadabase was by far the most customizable, powerful and easy to master.
Overall : 10/10 rating for all measures. This is not first impressions, this is my rating after 12 months of use as a real Tadabase customer. If you are looking to create a low cost, high security and feature rich web enabled database solution for your business and you don't know anything about coding ( software programming ) then i highly recommend you try Tadabase.
Pros : The development tool and features are very easy to use to create web enabled ( WebApp) database systems without coding. Wide selection of Tadabase ready-made templates are free and make the whole development process even more quicker. I used the school management template which saved me huge amount of work as I was able to easily edit each component to my requirements. The rapid table creation from pasted data is very impressive. The customer support has been fantastic over the last 12 months. Tadabase is best value for money when compared to Quickbase, Caspio and PowerApp. I have been using all of these alternatives products for over 5 years and can honestly say Tadabase comes out top on all measures and this is the reason why i have decided to stop looking elsewhere and to stick with Tadabase.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : Price, usability and customer service.
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : Quickbase was extremely powerful and very agile tool but very expensive and is recent price model means people like me were priced out. Caspio was too hard to understand and slow. Price wasn't very good. PowerApps required too many other bolt-ons to make it work and wasnt worth the time or money. I think latest features do allow external use unlike before where it was only accessible for internal users.
Overall : Outstanding, I would highly recommend Tadabase!
Pros : Tadabase has an unbelievable customer support service line. In short order I've always received 1:1 support from persons willing to work into the fine details to get what you need answered. Additionally, the platform is quite robust and the price is untouched gable compared to other no/low-code platforms. I saved $$$ by selecting Tadabase. The team are so engaging and willing/wanting to help.
Overall : The ability to customize an application to your business has given us a new way to approach running our business. No one knows it like us and 'canned' business applications generally cover only the core business issues. Imagine hitting every business issue with a custom solution that fully integrates to everything you do.
Pros : The ability to conquer so many complex issues with no coding at all is so easy with the builder. There are several ways to approach most problems giving you the flexibility you need to work through most anything and you can take the look of your App to almost any level of awesome.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : Value, support response during testing and trial period, and features (integrations).
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : Was not happy with the speed - user side was sluggish, it was impossible to get a professional look on user end, and the support was great if you read every forum post, document, api instruction, etc but talking with someone - forget it. One liners at best.
Overall : Really positive. The product is easy to use with a strong feature set. The support is responsive. Training material is good. Reliability has been solid. The real plus point for me is that all of the aforementioned have been continually improved over the last year or so. This coupled with a community base where feedback is acted upon highlights a company that cares.
Overall : It was a little difficult to get started with the software, but once I had a general idea of how things were setup I had very little issues. I think it took me all of two days to get everything setup and ready for users to begin accessing it as I wanted. We've used it to create a toolcrib for techs to lookup the correct tool kits they need and to track the purchase information/warranty info which is definitely making tracking that info a lot easier.
Pros : The quick and easy ability to preview any changes I make to every part of the database and the user-facing portion is so useful. Anything I am uncertain about I can quickly try and see if it works how I am expecting without having to go through a ton of hassle. It's great for someone like me with little experience building databases.
Overall : I migrated an 'app' that was really a WordPress site with many plugins to provide the functionality I wanted. What I lost in design flexibility was more than made up for by Tadabase's platform. This new app, not in quotes now because it's a real app, is a great addition to our company's product lineup. I have no doubt the investment in Tadabase will pay off nicely!
Pros : I was launch-ready in just two weeks. That's remarkable for the development of any app.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : Just reading websites, and not being familiar with this kind of app development platform, it's hard to distinguish between Tadabase and Knack. I flipped a coin and decided to try Tadabase first. It was apparent early on that Tadabase would meet my needs and I was able to get a working app so quickly that I never saw a reason to try Knack.
Reasons for Switching to Tadabase : There were lots of reasons, but stronger database technology was the bottom line.
Overall : Honestly its a dream come true for someone who doesn't want or have the resources to hire programmers and wants to take an application live as fast as possible.
Pros : I was able to build everything myself, Im not a programmer. The flow is so easy. From the moment I signed in to the moment i tested the live finished version it was quick and easy to put together.
Reasons for Choosing Tadabase : Its just faster, easier, and affordable
Switched From : because the fees for production were outrageous and i was demod tadabase and realized i could do this myself
Overall : Not only was I able to deploy in weeks as opposed to a year, but it was a success with the end users.
Pros : Easy to roll out. Great support team, they go above and beyond to get your application deployed and issues resolved. They are constantly improving with new features and enhancements. 90% no coding required and the 10% coding they assist you as well.
Pros : As a business owner who is not naturally tech savvy, and gets overwhelmed from charts and graphs, this has literally saved my life. No more lost client info, not knowing where our business is coming from, or who is responsible for every detail of work. Its like having a virtual Office Manager, but better. Customer service is extremely reliable, knowledgeable, and quick. Recommend to every business owner who wants to save time and focus on what matters.
