GW Apps vs QuickBase

Quickbase has a more traditional, table-based approach and focuses more on larger enterprise clients, which is reflected in their pricing structure. It has powerful functionality, but has limited options for form layout.

GW Apps offers similar functional capabilities, but with more flexibility in form design and an easier to use design interface. It is also targeted more toward SMB, which is reflected in the pricing, costing less than half the Quickbase price. Additionally, GW Apps offers more direct support to help you build and launch your initial application.

GW Apps vs Airtable

GW Apps is a no-code platform, so you will never need to learn or be familiar with programming or expression languages. Airtable is a low-code platform and relies on programming to unlock its more advanced capabilities. This means more of your line of business users will be able to complete their own apps using GW Apps than Airtiable.

Airtable’s spreadsheet style of interface has undeniable strengths. It certainly simplifies the initial understanding of how Airtable works, both for developers and end-users. It can also create apps that are very fast to work with, if the needs of the app fit well in the spreadsheet-like style. Airtable is more suited to creating apps that surface and process data from existing sources.

GW Apps excels at creating secure applications for sensitive business transactions where it is vital only specific people can see, edit or take action on specific data, at each stage in the process life-cycle. Applications like Contract Approval Review, Request for Capital Expenditure, Requests to add or modify master catalog records in ERP or Financial systems, and the like will fit better on GW Apps than Airtable. GW Apps inclusion of SLAs and platform level reporting and application organization means that GW Apps is also a stronger candidate for building employee self-service portals.

GW Apps vs AppSheet

AppSheet is a very quick way to build web apps if you already have populated Excel or Google Sheets, or an SQL database to serve as the data source. It also has useful features for mobile applications like geolocation and barcode scanning.

GW Apps real strength lies in its ability to create audit-ready applications for secure business transactions where it is vital only specific people can see or edit specific data, at specific stages in the process life-cycle. It also offers far greater control over how data is laid out in forms.

GW Apps vs Google Forms

Google Forms offers an easy-to-use editing UI, simple customizable logic, and a large library of additional add-ons and integrations. Viewing your data is clear and simple, and results can be easily shared. Google Forms works well for creating surveys, quizzes, and other simple data collection task. It can be mastered quickly, and perhaps best of all, it’s completely free.

That said, the limitations of Google Forms are encountered rather quickly as the complexity of your forms increase. Additionally, data/response viewing options are very limited, the UI is limited to a single column, forms cannot lookup data from each other, and there are limited permissions settings.

GW Apps is designed to be able to easily support complex applications like Purchase Approval, Asset Management, Employee Time Sheets, Service Requests, Requisitions, or any other typical business processes.

Google Forms is an excellent option for simple data collection needs. When Google Forms can’t meet your needs, then GW Apps can take over. It offers more freedom, more capability, more customization, and several important additional features like workflow automation, PDF and Email template builders, flexible and fine-grained security settings, and much more.

GW Apps vs Bubble

Which platform is better for you depends on what types of applications you’re trying to build and your interface design requirements.

Bubble offers more design freedom and control, allowing you to build all kinds of web apps, even a full-functional version of the next great dot-com business. Start-ups are actually a key target market for Bubble and they seem to have the tools to serve that market well. However, if you want to build typical business process apps, with workflow and security, it will be more complex, time consuming and expensive to build them with Bubble than GW Apps.

GW Apps core target is to build business apps as quickly and easily as possible. GW Apps makes it very simple to create audit-ready applications for secure business transactions where it is vital only specific people can see or edit specific data, at specific stages in the process life-cycle.
