Betty Blocks received the highest scores possible in the business model/service vision, strategy, training, support, and product revenue growth rate criteria. “As a young company recognized within the report, we think it shows we are on the right path in our mission to democratize software development.” - Chris Obdam, Betty Blocks CEO.
Betty Blocks stands out from platforms like Quick Base by being both easy enough that anyone can use it while boasting capabilities powerful enough to build secure, complex, enterprise-grade applications. Building applications is done with the visual drag-and-drop interface and pre-programmed building blocks. This way, you are guaranteed to build applications that work flawlessly, in a fast and fun way.
Low-code platforms like Quick Base reduce the amount of coding needed to create applications. Some degree of coding is required to build complete applications, but developers can save a lot of time. Low-code platforms are intended for professional developers, aimed to speed up the development time of already existing software applications and IT infrastructures.
Low-code platforms can be very helpful if you have a team of .NET or Java developers at your disposal, but they represent a significant barrier for non-developers.

Betty Blocks is one of the easiest to use no-code platforms. All developing with Betty Blocks is done through visual modeling and a drag-and-drop interface of application logic, completely suitable for Citizen Developers.
No-code platforms like Betty Blocks close the gap between software needs and available developers by creating a new kind of developer: the Citizen Developer. This class of developers are eager to innovate, bring about new ideas and build quickly without needing to code. Because of the platform’s ease of use, a professional developer is not needed on every project.
Quick Base is a cloud database software platform for creating custom solutions to everyday business challenges. It's a powerful workspace that helps teams be more efficient by empowering the people closest to the work to quickly build business applications that match their exact processes.
Quick Base states that teams can get started without programming experience, but with low-code you will encounter code and in that case help from a professional developer is needed.
Betty Blocks offers flexible and competitive pricing to suit a variety of business needs and to help you best leverage your company’s resources. We base our pricing on the complexity of the applications (Building Blocks used), not the number of users. And you never have to pay more, no matter how many end-users your application(s) support.
Let’s say you need an enterprise project approval or expense reporting application for your company, which will support 5,600 users. With Betty Blocks’ pricing model the application would cost €12,000 a year. Read more about the pricing plan here.
Quick Base’s pricing plan is based on the number of users, starting at $1,600 per month on the platform edition. In this plan, you can get up to 100 custom business apps. Enterprise plans are custom-built to suit your needs, with flexible annual and multi-year licensing.
The price for your application can vary widely, depending on the complexity and number of users for both platforms. Run the numbers so you’re sure you’re making a calculated decision.
