Building off of its recent momentum, Quickbase has been named both an Enterprise Leader and an overall Leader for Fall 2021 in Rapid Application Development (RAD) and in No-Code Development Platforms! Read below for more on our past success with customer reviews and G2.

In its first-ever ranking of Rapid Application Development software solutions, influential review site G2 Crowd has ranked Quickbase as the #1 solution for driving digital transformation through faster application development. The report places Quickbase ahead of 30 other solutions in the fast-growing category of Rapid Application Development platforms.

How G2 Crowd Measures
G2 Crowd bases its rankings on customer satisfaction (based on real user reviews posted to the site) and market presence, including social media influence and size of customer base. The grid scoring system also takes into account how closely reviews match the benefits of the software category. For the Rapid Application Development category, G2 Crowd identified these key benefits:

  • Create initial product quickly with reduced development time.
  • Gain business and consumer insight early in an application lifecycle.
  • Evolve an application or project based on real world critiques.
  • Create a better product based off of consumer needs.
  • Lower cost by creating a new product quickly.
  • Reduce risk with frequent updates, rather than relying on one large final release.

More than 5,800 customers use Quickbase to drive innovation, collaboration, and process improvements to their organizations by offering a true low-code app development platform. They say Quickbase offers the right combination of ease of use (Quickbase apps can be built with little or no coding skills) and robust security features.

Companies like FedEx Office, Tesla, Micron Technology, and more use Quickbase to build highly-customizable apps that meet their needs without long development times.
