About 2 years ago we started using Quickbase ( https://www.quickbase.com
) we were an early adopter and our rates where low around $50 per month.
We have since grown very attached to Quickbase and have several large database totaling over +120mb of text
Recently they have upped there rates, even for the early adopters to about ~$250 for 10 users, we are paying around $350 USD each month, because of our extra databases and size of them.
This is unacceptable, at 7 times the pervious rate we can no longer afforded there service, but since we are so dependent on there service we can not leave.
What I am looking for is a Quickbase alternative, which we can purchase the source and run on our own servers.
OR an alternative to Quickbase with a lower rate.
- the ability to create new database
- the ability to create different fields for the database (drop down list, text, numbers)
- the ability to create views for the database, (including fields X,Y,Z, excluding A,B,C sorted by fields D,E,F)
- the ability to sort the data by any field.
And the most important, it has to be dead simple for adding and updating records so any person could do it
If we can avoid it we do not want to get stuck with anther company that might so the same things as Quickbase
We prefer to run it on our own servers.
Basically we are looking to a front end of a database
Thank you for your time and effort.
