QuickBase is a browser-based database application. Users can collaborate on the same database online, and from different locations. And because it's hosted in the cloud, and supported by Intuit, there's less IT overhead than traditional, software-based database tools.
What's neat about QuickBase is the service's developer program. This lets developers create and sell add-on Web apps that are marketed directly to customers via a promotional channel. This system also lets developers not have to worry about collecting money for users who install it, or keeping track of usage, since Intuit handles both of those things.
The core QuickBase service runs at $249 a month. Additional users, data records, and file attachments cost more in monthly fees.
