Great software which allows to quickly optimize analog processes. Fits small and large organization

5.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Very easy to develop forms and workflows. User driven. Allows to deploy apps fast and supports quick changes based on user needs.

Cons:

The mobile version needs improvement and is not as user-friendly as the desktop version. A better mobile version would greatly add to the overall value of the software.

Love Kintone for Data Entry, Work flow and Project Management

5.0 last month New

Comments: I absolutely love Kintone! It has modernized our business & reduced data duplication. We now have a project management tool and can see tasks being done among the team in real time. It has highly reduced the amount of emails and outlook calendar reminders, since I can set automatic notifications and reminders. The team I work with at Kintone has been a tremendous help anytime I have questions about implementing new processes. The sky is the limit and I am excited to see things evolve!

Pros:

It is easy to build apps that speak to one another, separating departments but not having to duplicate data

Cons:

Its hard to import when there are multiple tables or when there is a lookup field in an app. sometimes I can search a field from the drop down by typing out the word and sometimes that feature is unavailable. It would be nice to have more native plugins with better instructions

Alternatives Considered: Quickbase, Trello, Zoho Desk, monday.com, Asana and Smartsheet

Reasons for Switching to kintone: Kintone was easy to implement. I had a limited amount of time transitioning from our "old school" ways to something more modern and Kintone made the process seamless. They had support like no other and many training tools available.

It's A "OK" product

3.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

It can assign someone with a certain task, and it's easy to create some easy apps.

Cons:

It cannot do certain things like anker link. It is very inconvenient that it cannot do something easy like this.

I Highly Recommend Kintone

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: It has greatly helped us to organize our data in one location. It is also the place where people can get the most updated copy of information. We usually update catalogs, pictures, data sheets and so employees usually have several copies and different versions. It's great to know which one is the most updated copy to use, for example. Love how you can customize the data fields to your specific needs.

Pros:

I like how you can easily customize data fields and organize information in a completely custom way.

Cons:

When you create a table inside an app, it would be nice to be able to auto sort them and/or use filters. Please make more native Kintone plugins for further customization!

Alternatives Considered: Sage CRM and Salesforce Sales Cloud

Reasons for Choosing kintone: Microsoft Dynamics CRM was not user friendly so most of our staff ended up barely using the CRM or not at all. Also, they would frequently update the system and layout for better functionality (supposedly). However, the layout, organizational design, and features could drastically changed. This made staff (especially less technology inclined staff) even more reluctant to use this CRM.

Switched From: Dynamics 365

Reasons for Switching to kintone: Better support especially at implementation. Having the ability to make a custom database was the most appealing factor.

Increased productivity and time to focus on value add/business growing activities

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Our organisation was driven by spreadsheets and staff worked incredibly long hours and we imposed inefficient processes that were time consuming on our contractors. We have more than halved the amount of time required to undertake basic operational tasks and similarly reduced non-value adding effort on the side of our contractors. Our corporate knowledge is now supported by a strong and secure auditable system. The Kintone team have been exceptional in assisting us to realise our business vision with regard to systems.

Pros:

Kintone was flexible enough to be allow us to re-create our somewhat unique business requirements from data collection, to workflow, to linking with other systems such as Formstack, Docusign and Xero, to communicating with contractors and customers. We were able to eliminate as much mundane and time consuming activities as possible to ensure that the only interventions required by staff members is to "add some value".

Cons:

It is a little clunky around external organisations and users which we need to duplicate and link as organisations/contacts with departments/users
