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 was searching to replace my mobile -- but very much showing it's age -- HanDBase. I was also long time proponent of the Helix database on the Mac which was becoming less friendly and not easily mobile. I needed to put a structure in place for my new business. My requirements were: Mac friendly, multi-platform, and mobile. I found Ninox on v1 and worked through the learning curve. Today, Ninox v2.4 gives me a central point to coordinate the activities, common data of all my cloud based processes including: QuickBooks Online, G-Suites for Business, MailChimp, RingCentral, and Asana. I can hardly wait till v2.5 to see what else I can do to make my business easier.

    Pros

    Flexibility is a huge part of the Ninox platform. Ninox has the power of a multi-relation, multi-platform, mobile, scriptable database. And it can also be an easy no-scripting data gathering tool. As a small business owner, my needs develop on a daily basis. Ninox is my secret weapon to managing them in-house. When I need an ad-hoc tool to evaluate , template, and organize lists or piles of data... Ninox. When I want to take that ad-hoc tool and turn it into a multi-user process...Ninox.

    Cons

    Steep structural learning curve. My experience with database systems began with D-Base4 on DOS. All of my previous databases were predicated on the idea that the record is not created until it is "entered". A Ninox record is entered when it is created. Adding data to it is an update. Here me know and believe me later... there is massive power in this approach. I was also concerned that my users would have problems understanding this, none of them have ever noticed. In this age of instant entry and not-saving, they think it is normal.

    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.

    Amazingly easy to get into but hasn't evolved much

    Reviewed on 2017/11/28

    Pros

    So easy to pickup and use. Really quick to develop a business app which feels very empowering.

    However that's pretty much where it ends

    Cons

    Too Mac centric, icloud as the sync option is ridiculous.

    Struggles on server edition with medium sized data sets, filtering becomes very slow.

    You cannot actually do much with your data, no real integration outside of Ninox.

    Poor implementation of report design and printing which exposes too much to the end user.

    Not enough separation between design and client use

    Ich habe früher viel mit Excel gearbeitet und finde es sehr gut, dass einige Befehle so wie bei Excel erstellt werden können. Die Unterstützung ist absolut hervorragend.

    Pros

    Einfach zu bedienen. Auch nicht Profis können damit arbeiten.

    Cons

    Ich würde mir im Druckbereich eine Seitenabgrenzung wünschen, damit das Erstellen für A4 Seiten leichter ist.

    Just think it could be easier to use, more intuitive, less 'programmery'. I realise this is easy to say and hard to do, especially when speaking of a database, but there you go.

    Pros

    One off purchase rather than a subscription
    Powerful
    Does the job that I need it to - create and track invoices and expenses
    Quick

    Cons

    There are certain simple things - for example, auto-increments for invoice numbers that require 'programming-style' statements to set up.
