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

    This is copied directly from my reply to tech support for one of their assists with one of my DB’s.
    “ I’m at work right now but can’t wait to get home to check this out. And I want to say that Ninox is like candy to a baby for me. I’m not the brightest bulb on the tree but I like puzzles and usually can poke the code long enough to get it to do what I want. In this case it was apparent that the best solution was going beyond my skill set. That said, I’ve dozens of DBs that go everywhere from standardizing my PM procedures at work, to helping with my finances, to running a handicapped pool tournament, to monitoring my meds. This app is in 1950’s slang, “the cat’s pajamas”. I appreciate your assistance with this and love your app!! Keep up the great work! ”

    Pros

    At personal level, it is unsurpassed in it’s feature set and ability to grow with the user’s experience. I’ve found that it’s scalability is vast and would lend itself to anything from personal use, to family shared use, to small business. I only hesitate to recommend for large business as I have no experience with how a large multi-user environment would work (speed, reliability, etc).

    Cons

    The grid system used to position fields in the forms you create can get really clumsy when a DB designed on an ipad or mac is viewed on an iphone. The fields shift around and do not retain the positioning that they have on ipad or mac. Unfortunately, this is necessary as creating a miniaturized version of the ipad or mac form would result in fields too small to be easily used, so this is a trade off. I haven’t designed any of my DBs specifically for an iphone display so they all get a bit wonky when I use my iphone to view them.

    We are really exploring the big-data space using Ninox and it is too early yet.
    Givent he prototyping of the core engine is still being done and as a result it is not deployed to the team

    Pros

    availability across the fleet of mobile and traditional platforms and seems to provide a great solution for Apple environment especially.
    It is easy to get started and the templates and forum are really good, though it is easy to lose a great deal of time in the forum.

    Cons

    The user manual and documentation gloss over a number of important features etc. Switch is an example.
    How is it best optimised as I am finding long processing times (hours)

    (1) Able to quickly prototype enterprise-wide solutions. (2) Able to build production-quality data management and executive information systems quickly. (3) Able to manage enormous amounts of data with very quick processing and query turn-around.

    Pros

    Incredibly powerful. Amazing tech support. The feature set and functional capabilities of Ninox are the industry standard. Have used this platform to build entire ERP, CRM and HR Management systems for multi-billion dollar companies at a fraction of cost and time required by other solutions.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a learning curve. Ninox is not a "traditional" relational database management system... It is, in fact, much more. Was the best when I started using it two years ago and nothing even comes close today.

    Easily made a database tailored to my needs

    Reviewed on 2018/02/09

    Pros

    The program was very easy to use and flexible. I searched several programs that did not give me the flexibility that Ninox did. I combined several databases into one, easy to use database and am able to run reports that are meaningful to my practice. It is also cloud based, so I can access it on my phone and on the iPad.

    Cons

    The update took away the easy edit tool, so I can't figure out how to change my database anymore. Luckily, I don't think I need to make any major changes anymore. Initially, it took a while to get used to, but some of the updates have made it easier to navigate and get the information that I want in a report format that is easy to read.
