What business problems were you trying to solve with RowShare?
We needed a software solution to improve collaborations in our teams, sharing tables, lists, inventories, incidents, etc.
How were you addressing this issue before using RowShare?
Well, we used some obsolete tools, as Lotus 1-2-3, Microsoft Access, Excel and SharePoint.
They all have their flaws, from the obsolescence of Lotus, to the lack of security segmentation of excel, to the complexity of administration of a sharepoint site.
We thought and still think, that Rowshare, although is not a database, covers our needs of ease of use, ease of administration, robust security, group sharing and collaboration framework.
Why did you choose RowShare over any other alternative?
The most important thing that resolved us to use Rowshare was in one hand, the easiness of use and in the other hand the simple way to handle permissions and groups of users, something that was a must for us.
Another important thing was the capability of Rowshare to work via web API, and to export and import data, so we could migrate data from old tools, and we can make scripts to load or unload data to other systems as well.
