About kintone

Typically, companies have to hire vendors to create business applications and then a whole other set of vendors to customize the solutions. With kintone, however, a new, customized business app can be up and running in no time.

    We picked this software in order to fix a paper based process that had gone wrong After we made the first application we've made 30 more for different processes in our company. I can't say enough good things about the software and how it has helped our company.

    Pros

    User friendly GUI
    Easy learning curve for programming
    Notifications
    Process management
    Great support
    Adaptability

    Cons

    There is nothing that we dislike currently

    The People make the Product

    Transitioned a complex database with many "many to many" relationships which don't seem to something the designers at Kintone make a priority but thanks to experts and determined support from the team, we've figured most things out. We have a lot of work to do yet and it can feel daunting but thanks to the support, it is doable.

    Pros

    The support. Figuring things out wasn't intuitive for me and without the support team, I'd likely not have seen the transition through. The team was unbelievably patient and kind and smart about ensuring we didn't get it fast...but correct. Support team truly was the best value and made all the difference in the world.

    Cons

    Challenging to use and learn.
    Lack of comprehensive tutorials.
    I would always search first for help but only found very basic guidance which made me feel terrible for always having to turn to support team to figure things out. The product is great if you are very tech savvy and have advanced skills... or if you have the team for support. But if we had to go this alone, we'd never have endured.

    Hope for further future enhancements to make it more user friendly

    Pros

    It is better than what we had but that is not saying much. I am hoping that future enhancements will make it better.

    Cons

    Every time I click on an app etc. it keeps opening a new tab.

    I liked the software. It has helped us find an easy way to track certifications for our organization.

    Pros

    What I like most about this software it is super easy to build a database with drag and drop. Also, if you need something more advance there is a custom development team that is affordable

    Cons

    I think the look of the user interface needs to be updated. The visual design needs work as it doesn't look visually impressive compared to some tools.

    Response from Cybozu

    Hi Barry, thanks for the review! So glad you're loving our drag and drop feature. It sure does help to build your custom apps with ease. I will pass on your notes about the user interface to the team.

    Easy-to-use platform with great potential

    Reviewed on 20/06/2022

    Pros

    It is a good alternative that incorporates simple to use and very efficient tools. It has the drag and drop tool that speeds up the creative process without code. It allows the development of an ideal database to track our customers and web forms. Creating simple and personalized applications is very simple and necessary to process time in the office.

    Cons

    The only thing I have noticed is that its user interface can be more visually pleasing.

    Response from Cybozu

    Hi David,
