Reviews for DB-Developments

Excellent Service

I have been working with Paul and DB Development for the past 4 years I am based in Paris France and despite Brexit and the 1 hour time difference (?) Paul’s ability to develop and improve our Quickbase app to make my job SO much easier is just BRILLIANT. I would highly recommend Paul. We all have our areas of expertise and Paul’s are Quickbase and providing excellent customer service.

Excellent Coordination and Amazing Analysis of the Requirement

It is quite difficult to understand our internal workflow and concepts. Our expectations in the app development were flawlessly fulfilled by Paul and his coordination during the app development was extraordinary. I am located in India and work for a global service provider that services SN, time zone difference was also greatly managed by Paul, indeed.

Excellent support in modelling workflows

Very good at understanding differences in global plus regional workflows for Germany, and assisting in building an app that displays global functionality. Paul is readily available to discuss issues, and move the app-building process along in a very customer-focused way.

Skilled to optimally 'build the app' together with the user

Quick understanding of the users' workflows. Serviced from the UK helps in time zone coverage and it is a big pro that DBD knows when to tweak parts of QB that may reflect a USA mindset. Recommended by Kirk Trachy from QB to work with Paul. We got the best of quality services and a sophisticated app. Paul quickly responds to questions to ensure the customer can take the next steps in building/filling the app without delay. Reliable, pleasant, skilled, and customer focused.

Helpful, Friendly, Effective

Paul Johnson has been an adamant professional throughout our work together, he's always great fun to speak with and he both understands ideas that we have and brings his own forward for development. Always on hand to help out he has been one of the few reasons we've kept quickbase around this long. 5 stars

Very flexible approach to client needs

I work with Paul Johnson for a couple of years and I would highly recommend him as a preferred QuickBase partner. Paul has a very flexible approach to the client's specific requirements and is always available to answer questions and recommend solutions.

Excellent Knowledge and Understanding

Paul has an excellent knowledge of what is possible on Quickbase. We have worked with him on a number of projects now and on every occasion he took time to first of all listen and understand our business and then what we wanted as the end solution. He then sits and works out the best way to get you what you want , shows you , builds it, allows you to test it, tweeks it and hey presto you have what you wanted. You will not go wrong when you use him. Many thanks Paul Daljit

A pleasure to work with

3 years on and still working with Paul and DB-Developement.... and still absolutely NO hesitation in recommending him. Paul always finds a solution in Quickbase to my requests/problems. Reading other people's reviews one might be a bit distrusting if the review is "too positive" but honestly the only thing on which I could potentially criticize Paul is how we end up having really interesting conversations on subjects that aren't related to Quickbase. He being as chatty as I am... So if you are looking for Quickbase application design, developement, trouble shooting, advice etc... contact Paul. You will find him helpful, rapid, professional and just really nice... the "chatty" is optional !!!

Excellent Software Development Partner

We were looking to move the business from largely paper based processes to a more automated system. Paul provided invaluable assistance in planning the move and in developing a system to handle our business processes. His excellent knowledge of Quickbase and willingness to share his skills made him the ideal partner. He provided excellent training sessions and was always available to help when needed. Most importantly, as we transitioned and realised some areas needed changing he happily planned and made modifications to accommodate these without complaint. We would definitely recommend DB Developments to anyone looking to utilise Quickbase in their business.

Made the process so simple

Working with DB Developments made the building of our fast apps so simple. Paul was always there to advise and support and went above and beyond in every sense. We did all that we could do and leant on their support when we needed something more technical, this approach saved on development costs and increased the in-house knowledge base. Excellent service, excellent value, I would highly recommend DB Developments and Quickbase.

Great Service

Paul provided a training workshop for me in which the information provided was very thorough. I was made to feel comfortable and able to ask any questions needed.

Quick response & very helpful!

Paul helped us with some of the more complex functionality of an app we were developing. It was great to get some expert input! Paul's experience with a range of similar situations was particularly good as it enabled him to quickly come up with a solution and offer advice on how we could consider doing things. Paul was happy to answer questions and explain what he had done to create a solution so we could understand how it works.

New App

Absolute pleasure to work with Paul Johnson at DB Developments. Speed, efficancy and super service would be the words I would use to sum up the experience. Paul had the app that I wanted up and working in record time and never had a problem with my phone calls asking "what if we added this" and "can you just add one more tiny thing". I would not hesitate for an instance to recommend Paul and DB-Developments.

Paul is a highly skilled and conscientious developer. Our software requirements were particularly bespoke and complex. Paul's logical thought process and expert knowledge of QuickBase were invaluable in helping to create a simple-to-use, efficient app that does exactly what we need. I have no hesitating in recommending Paul, and we will certainly continue to work with him for our ongoing development needs.

DB Developments

DB developments have provided us with a practical solution that is not only easy to implement and use but that will grow with our business. Paul worked closely with us to understand the user requirements and suggesting where we could make useful additions. No hesitation in recommending Paul to others.

Would highly recommend

Worked with DB Developments myself for 1.5yrs (2yrs as a consultant within the Company). Would highly recommend professional, friendly and knowledgeable service.

Highly Efficient! Many Thanks.

When looking into Quick Base I looked for a consultant to build the system from scratch and came across Paul at DB Developments who had been recommended through reviews. He answered all questions efficiently and advised us where necessary as to ideas that overall provided a better solution and catered to our needs more efficiently, spotting some weaknesses in our initial thought process. He went above and beyond when our needs changed slightly and we realised we required more than we had first anticipated through change in the business. Paul is easy to work with and had a vast amount of patience! Nothing was too much trouble and I had a great deal of confidence in what he was offering and he did not disappoint. I would highly recommend Paul and still contact him now if there is anything I am struggling with. It has been an absolute pleasure and we will no doubt do further work in the future. Many Thanks.

What it says on the tin!

We recruited DB to improve the functionality and efficiency of some of our databases - the work was done very professionally, on budget, on time, and with some embellishments added. Everything was explained very carefully. All in all a very good experience and we will certainly use Paul again for bigger jobs. We're very glad we found him...

Recommendation for DB Developments

We have been working with Paul to create a bespoke workflow solution as a front end to our purchasing system. The workflow for this application was particularly complex. Paul demonstrated a clear understanding of the processes involved based on the information given and has converted this into a useable Quick Base application. Paul has worked on site alongside myself developing our application in accordance with our specific requirements and even incorporated some addition requirements which came to light during the development process. Working with Paul has been a great experience. Paul is friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and helpful. I have found from a personal development perspective working alongside Paul during the development of our application particularly rewarding. As a result I have gained a greater understanding of the application creation process, methods used and have gone on to create a number of applications myself. Paul was also able to offer us a bespoke training course on application creation which the individuals who were somewhat technically minded found very useful. As a direct result of the training they have since been able to create their own applications within Quick Base.

Recommendation for Paul Johnson / DB-Development

Sodexo International Large account is using a Quick Base platform to support the reporting requirements of one of its major client. As we were looking for Quick Base experts in Europe, Intuit recommended us to work with Paul Johnson. Paul has helped us to conduct a complete review of our applications and document all key elements. He identified some security weaknesses and gave us advice on how to correct it. It has been great working with Paul. He has been very professional and he has met our expectations for understanding our needs and fulfilled them completely. I would definitely recommend Paul’s services to any company looking for a Quick Base expert consultant, bringing best-in-class knowledge on this technology and smart view on business and large organization requirements.

Very good alround solution provider

My company have been using the UK-based consultant company DB developments for making a number of new apps and databases in Quick Base over the last few years. I can recommend using this company of the following reasons: - Very high customer satisfaction focus - Quick and responsive. High integrity. - High focus on providing customer value - Flexible approach (happy working alongside our internal developers). Four stars and a wish: I am rating DB developments a strong 4, saving the 5 for later as I would like to see an even higher focus on making the user interface fully intuitive, getting the last details perfect. I think, however, that this is fully within reach.

DB Developments

DB Developments have created a number of Quick Base database applications for our company. Paul Johnson (DB Developments) is extremely customer-focused and the applications he has created for us have matched our requirements. Paul is both professional and very friendly which makes him a pleasure to work with. He provides ongoing support and acts as a point of contact for data issues and user questions. He has also been involved in end-user training and writing process documentation when required. We have been really happy with the work and service provided by DB Developments and would recommend them to other companies of any size.
