About Ninox

Ninox is a cloud-based platform for building custom database applications, with solutions for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and web browsers. The platform allows users to create custom apps using built-in templates, custom actions, scripting, and drag-and-drop formulas to connect multiple databases. Custom forms, fields, and triggers can be created, and calculations can be built using the visual formula editor.

Ninox can be used to create a range of different application types, covering event management, invoicing, accounting, inventory management, customer relationship management (CRM), task management and to-do lists, real estate administration, meeting management, and more. Teammates can be invited to collaborate, and users can control the permissions granted to each collaborator. Real-time sync between devices allows users to access and work on their apps from multiple devices. Bento files, CSV files, and contacts can be imported, and data can be exported in Excel and CSV formats. Multiple chart types are built-in to allow users to visualize data.

    I abs love the fact that Ninox has a well-developed set of APIs so that we could integrate Ninox with other business apps. The customer support is superb, the community and knowledge base is so big that sometimes you don't need to submit a ticket as there is a high probability that your question was answered.

    Pros

    Simplicity of usage; great tutorials and community

    Cons

    Pricing, limited customization capabilities

    Great Product, Outstanding Support

    I have completed many different database solutions at present, my latest one is a quote engine, previously it would take about 3.5 minutes to produce one quote if I was lucky, I can now deliver quotes in about 20 seconds, start to finish. Someone asked for 6 quotes the other day, he asked how long it would take the get the quotes, I said they will be with you within 15 minutes, he was well impressed, exceeded my own target and his expectations.

    Pros

    The ease of use, you can start building a database from scratch with very little experience. There are many templates to choose from and the support you get from the Ninox team is beyond 1st class.

    Ninox has saved me so much time and provided me with opportunities to develop more sales by using it.

    Cons

    The English manual needs development, (I believe this is in hand) there is so much information in the head of the support team that needs to get into the manual. Layout needs improving, I don't like having to messing about with 'spaces' and line breaks, I would prefer that we can place an object in position and it sticks in place.

    for us exactly the right tool

    Reviewed on 10/12/2021

    Pros

    At the beginning, it was a bit difficult to grasp the added value. But over time, you learn more and more and suddenly understand what the possibilities are.
    I've already clicked together quite a few things, from small apps to calculation tools. So far, everything was possible and could be implemented in a few hours.
    Importing data from existing documents is straightforward.
    The table view makes it easy for long-time Excel users to find their way around.

    Cons

    First of all: there are many new features all the time. So I hope that the following points are already being worked on.

    1) The export of PDFs leaves a lot to be desired. Currently no sub-tables can be listed in tables, font and cell formatting via HTML only works within tables, but not in freely set text fields. Multi-page documents are difficult to create. For example, it is not possible to specify that an object should be placed on the next page.
    In tables you can only group by one value. It would be great if you could import e.g. .rdlc files.

    2) There are some feature differences from the Mac app to the cloud version. Not only in obvious cloud functions like sending mail via send-grid.
    E.g. there seems to be differences in the calculation order of loops.

    3) Ninox uses its own language. This seems to be based on other languages, but not all functions or expressions work. But here I am an absolute beginner and don't want to evaluate this.

    Viel bessere betriebliche Übersicht. Einfach Prozessdarstellung. Seit der Ninox Einführung brauche ich für die Unternehmensführung eigentlich nur noch mein iPad. Alle arbeiten lassen sich im Ninox erledigen

    Pros

    Wir waren auf der Suche nach einer Alternative zu Excel und sind hochzufrieden. Seit jetzt 5 Jahren haben wir bei uns im Pflegedienst Ninox in Verwendung. Mittlerweile gibt es keinen Bereich mehr der ohne Ninox betrieben wird. Die Software ist einfach zu bedienen ohne grosses Lernen einer Programmiersprache. Neue Ideen sind sehr schnell umsetzbar.

    Cons

    Dabei fallen mir weniger Funktionen ein sondern eher die fehlende Möglichkeit Lösungen einfach mal schnell nachzulesen. Das Handbuch ist doch eher allgemein gehalten und die Software ist so flexibel, dass man sie fast allen Bedürfnissen anpassen kann.
