It also offers a variety of built applications, including CRM, project management, sales lead and inventory management, and many others.

Kintone Features

Data Organization

Kintone's database software stores a wide variety of data such as text, numbers, and file attachments, meaning users can keep all related data in a single record for faster collaboration.   

Custom Reporting

Filter the data in the user's app to see it the way users want for quick reporting. Filters include a calendar view, list views, visual graphs, and more. Once the user has the idea, export it to a CSV file or PDF for easy sharing.   

Built-in collaboration Features

Add comments and tag coworkers to individual data records in the user's app for easier team collaboration, task handoffs, feedback, and more.   

Sales Lead Management

With this app, users can track customers and prospect data from a single app for a clearer picture of the user's sales cycle. Set filters to see who leads are assigned to, average closing times, department handoffs post-sale, and more.   

Inquiry Management

Effectively track new and open inquiries. Capture critical information, assign team members to follow up, and monitor status updates for a faster resolution process.   

Recruiting Pack

Keep user's departments up to date on open positions and internal source referrals, and then manage candidates through the application, interview, and onboarding process.

Display user's data visually

Visualize the data stored in users' apps in colorful charts and graphs. Data displayed in graphs is shown in real-time, eliminating the need to recompile data every time users need a new report.   

Link data between related apps

Link different database apps using fields such as "Related Records" or "Lookup." Pulling information from various databases into a master app reduces data duplication work and reduces the time spent searching for related data.   

Notifications

Users will receive a notification at the top of the user's Kintone page to alert users. Notifications are organized by default as "Read" and "Unread".    

Track Workflows

Build step-by-step workflows in users' apps to easily track tasks and projects around users' data. Workflows are built just like apps–using Kintone's no-code drag-and-drop tool.

Managing Sensitive Information

Use permission settings to control various actions, including who can create and edit apps and who can view, input, and edit data. Kintone's permissions can be configured on the individual or group level, making it easy to change access for multiple users at once if needed.

Kintone vs Airtable: The Better Pick under Strained Budgets?

The basic, entry-level, Airtable subscription comes for free, so for small organizations looking to expedite/streamline their project management concerns without having to worry about costs, the tool is definitely worth considering.

All Kintone subscriptions, however, come with an associated price tier.

In the end, it’s your organizational workflow requirements that should dictate which PM software you decide to go for; since the wrong subscription (even if it comes without any expense) can often prove counterproductive to your sign-up intent.

Less stress, more productivity

November 2022

Erica Miles

Non-profit Organization

Pros:
I don’t think we have used Kintone to its optimum level yet because we are still expanding our scope as an organization. I know that in the future, Kintone will be even more useful to us. I can say this because the set of features we are currently using has been quite helpful in enhancing our overall productivity. I personally have benefited from the reporting tool. I feel more confident during my presentations because Kintone makes it easier to extract data in an easy-to-understand manner. And it is so simple to configure the data into meaningful reports.
Cons:
As a team, we are still discovering the features included in the Kintone software. In the beginning, it was difficult to set up the software, and we found several functions complicated to use. However, the customer support team has provided valuable assistance in this regard.

We are so glad we found Kintone software

November 2022

Alfred J. Stravinsky

Sr. Manager  

Pros:
The system user interface is extremely user-friendly in general. It's simple to edit, change, tweak, and add as you go. However, Kintone goes above and beyond in terms of how much their personnel assist you in thinking through and implementing intricate areas of the database. They have assisted me in improving and streamlining the way data is treated and managed. Their assistance in writing calculations has been helpful! When attempting to figure out how to make formulas, import data efficiently, construct merge templates, and so much more, the help menu section might be a bit daunting to a layperson.
Cons:
The data points in reports are not sorted alphabetically when mapping or generating filters. That has been my one major annoyance because it makes finding the fields you want so difficult. I know what field I need, but because items are arranged by when the field was introduced rather than alphabetically, finding fields for future reports or work becomes much more difficult. I'd like to be able to use tables instead of tabs in field groups. To reduce space on the display screen, I'd like to be able to stack and organize fields more tightly. When I click the edit button in the list view, I'd prefer the row data not to grow past the setting I have on the view screen.

One of the best implementation and onboarding experience

November 2022

Carley J.

Transportation

Pros:
The thing I loved most about the application was how simple it was to use and learn. Moreover, I was able to configure things very easily as well, which was not the case with the previous software that I was using. Besides, one of the most advantageous benefits Kintone has over other software within the same niche is the implementation procedure. It is very simple to set up process management and give roles to everyone on the team using the application. Thus, I would highly recommend this application, especially to newer businesses that have no tech-savvy employees.
Cons:
There are a few issues that I experience frequently with the software. Firstly, I found it a little hard with some of the features of the software, such as setting up reminders. Due to this, I had to contact customer care assistance to get my issue fixed. Thankfully, the representatives were quick to respond; otherwise, it would have been another issue. Besides this, another thing that I would like to see improved is that the software should provide the option to remove all of the notifications with a single click. Currently, I have to remove them one by one. Thus, I would like to see these improvements in the upcoming version of the software.

Precise and accurate calculations

November 2022

Paul S.

Project Manager

Pros:
I use this software mainly for calculations. Thankfully, the software generates pretty accurate results and never fails to deliver a worry-free experience. I no longer have to do the calculations manually because even though I used to use a calculator but it still left room for human error. However, that is not the case anymore as Kintone has solved this problem for me. I, for sure, know that as long as I’m inputting the correct data into the system, it will produce accurate results. Besides this, my experience with the support team was a pleasant one as they were quick to respond to my query promptly.
Cons:
Sometimes the best things can turn out to be a little problematic and the same is the case with this application. Although the software provides so many features and the option to customize them this very capability of the software becomes a little challenging as well. This is because it sometimes makes it difficult to adjust. It gets difficult for certain employees, like me, to navigate because of the complexity of the tasks.

Kintone PM has been a great addition to our family.

November 2022

Harry P. Letterman

Jr Manager

Pros:
The software is quite simple to use. You can quickly import your Excel worksheets and build an app and database. We also use an account that has been created to assist us in getting started quickly and to demonstrate various application development examples. The drag-and-drop interface is also excellent, and field configuration, as well as setting up filters and views, is really simple. It is simple to create personalized icons. The program is significantly less expensive than competitors such as QuickBase, which has a $600 starting point.
Cons:
As a result, functionalities are not fully developed. I have the impression that the software is still in its infancy. The software has the potential to improve over time. Quick searches by fields, such as a button or field within the app, are examples of this feature being lacking. The import and export functions are really tough to grasp. This is especially true when importing data into lookup tables. I think we are going to stick with it as it works with a variety of business models, which is one of our requirements for the future.

Kintone is one of the most user-friendly and approachable software available in the market

November 2022

Anthony D.

Financial Consultant

Pros:
There are several things that I would like to mention that I love about the application. I’m thankful to an ex-colleague of mine who introduced me to this app. Being someone who has little to no knowledge about technology, I was glad that I was able to get the gist of the software quickly. Normally, it takes me a little longer to understand the functioning of the applications, but that was not the case with Kintone. It is very simple to learn and use in terms of functionalities and tools.
Cons:
The built-in graphic and tabular features are not that good. I would say they are mediocre and can be improved further. Therefore, I am looking forward to the upcoming versions of the software where these issues will be resolved.

Kintone really improves our productivity and functionality

October 2022

Henry L. Filtz

Marketing Associate

Pros:
I have some prior experience with relational database architecture, and the build for my particular needs has been easy and quick, with little assistance from the Kintone Team. excellent product for my needs. I had attempted two different programs, one more expensive than the other. I was able to complete my student tracking requirements in around four days. With the other applications, I was unable to attain that goal in several weeks. When I need to speak with someone at Kintone, the people on the other end of the phone speak English in a way that I understand. My crew is always willing to assist and easy to reach.
Cons:
Kintone lacks some capabilities seen in most other applications I've used, such as the ability to format a phone number; we read this better than a string of 10 digits. Even the Kintone team acknowledged that there should be a way to accomplish this. So, I'd say it's a touch rough around the edges. Also, Kintone is heavily reliant on third-party programs for workflows, form integrations, and so on; it would be wonderful if some of that functionality was incorporated within the application.

An efficient and user-friendly software

October 2022

Karen H.

Operations Manager

Pros:
Kintone software has really helped us update our business and minimize data duplication. We now have a project management tool, and we can observe work being done across the team in real-time. The software has substantially decreased the quantity of emails and Outlook calendar reminders since it is easy for us to establish automated notifications and reminders. Its drag-and-drop interface works excellently, and field setups are incredibly straightforward. It performs fantastically while building up filters and displays. Also, putting up custom icons is simple and straightforward.
Cons:
Our team is quite happy that we converted to Kintone software because it has several very useful features and functionality and is a fantastic project management solution. It has significantly aided our organization's growth and expansion. There are only a few small changes that we would want to see included in future editions of the software. To begin with, the software does not allow us to modify the background colors and fonts because the user interface is pretty dull and monotonous. Furthermore, there are just a few customization choices available; we would like the developers to focus on the mentioned areas, as they can make project management rather interesting.

A great tool for project managers.

September 2022

Sarah G.

Supervisor

Pros:
With its many capabilities, Kintone software has long been a great tool for our company. However, what I appreciate most is how simple it is to edit data fields and arrange information in a completely unique way. Because I have reports at my fingertips, I have accurate reports and reliable information, and I feel secure giving presentations. Since I can establish automated notifications and reminders, the number of emails and Outlook calendar reminders has significantly decreased. Every time I have questions about putting new procedures in place, the Kintone support staff has been a huge assistance.
Cons:
With all of its features and capabilities, the software is quite fantastic. It has significantly aided our management team in streamlining our organization's everyday operations. The only drawback I can think of is that I wish the information search capabilities were a little bit more adaptable. I found it to be a bother every time I went to look for a file or document since I had to travel through so many folders and documents. With the exception of this one minor issue, I'm really happy with my software.

A highly comprehensive and adaptable software 

September 2022

Stephanie M.

non-profit organization management

Pros:
Kintone software is fantastic. It is simple to use, highly adaptable, has excellent capabilities, and the software is often updated, which is a significant benefit because they are continuously releasing new plug-ins and connections, allowing us to stay ahead of the competition. The software allows us to link to external applications, move around fields, and develop apps for pretty much everything we need. And the customer service is excellent. Whenever we encounter a technological problem, they always have a ready solution. Overall, Kintone is a great asset to our business.
Cons:
The issue we first had with the software was that it took us a long time to get it up and running. It is a substantial investment that will pay off eventually, but you must be prepared to put in some effort to get it where you want it. However, once you are completely trained, the software is a delight to work with.
