"Back-of-house apps and tooling in minutes, not days"
What do you like best about Retool?

Retool has replaced all of our custom built back-office apps and tooling for our product operations, and wholesale freed up engineering to focus entirely on customer facing product. It has enabled us to really invest without compromise for both customers and our ops.

What do you dislike about Retool?

The UI can feel a bit awkward at times. However, it's made large strides already, and the interface and documentation has improved a great deal.

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

Retool replaced our back of house dashboards and tooling for engineers, product, and customer success. Previously our team had to author these applications, which is necessary, but low value compared to the effort. Retool fixed the balance of those decisions.

"Excellent tool for quick prototyping and productivity. Easy to use and highly customizable."
What do you like best about Retool?

Retools is very easy to get started with, and at the same time, it is highly customisable, which makes it a very productive tool for creating a Proof of Concept (PoC) of any idea or overall to make any tool or experiment with ideas.

What do you dislike about Retool?

There wasn't anything in particular that I disliked. Some things could have even additional functionality and flexibility points, but Retool is continuously working on the product/platform and improving it with more features and functionality, like the recent Retool Workflows which added a whole new dimension of possibilities!

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

Experimenting with software development can sometimes be a bit costly because there are frontend concerns, backend concerns, system architecture, infrastructure, technology-specific matters, etc. Retool provides a comprehensive, streamlined and customisable development environment to visually create ready-to-use proofs of concepts and products, focusing on productivity and functionality. This saves a lot of time, costs and risk and allows for better software and a much friendlier and more accessible way to a broader audience.

"Best way to build internal workflows! easy, flexible and gives us full visibility on our customers"
What do you like best about Retool?

It's fast. Features that could have taken days, consume expensive engineering work are now super fast and straightforward.

What do you dislike about Retool?

Well, it's weird to say that, but -- The pricing! I believe you can charge more for this product. You are saving companies thousands of $ per month, so $10 per user is underpriced the way I see it. Few other things, it will be cool if you could give an option to only load queries when view is visible. so that the app will load faster

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

Admin, manage customer accounts, configure DB for customers, etc.. I've realized Retool helps me focus on my product and, as a startup - move much faster. Before retool, I was building API and a Postman request for everything, which isn't friendly for no coders, nor is it a fast solution.

"So much power yet still so accessible"
What do you like best about Retool?

I love that I can spend a few minutes in Retool as a non-engineer and still generate so much value for my team. It's easy to create entire dashboards and workflows, and you can make such impactful changes very easily.

What do you dislike about Retool?

The Retool UX isn't perfect, and the application is still missing some functionality that would be super helpful. Thankfully, it provides so much easy to use, useful functionality that it's not a real problem.

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

We've built an entire internal dashboard for our operations team to use. It plugs in with our database, so they can easily make changes to the underlying values, view certain cuts of data they want, or trigger events like API calls to other applications from within the dashboard. Retool saves a lot of time for our engineering team because now there's a whole application in Retool that does not have to be maintained by the engineering team.

"Get more value from your data in less time. Simples."
What do you like best about Retool?

We had a react web-app, served from an express-js server, pulling from a mongoDB (in the cloud). With ReTool, in less than two hours I rebuilt the core functionality of the web-app, allowing us to bin off the old one and the old server. I added features that have been on my "to-do" list for ages but have not had dev time for. It's a winner. I've already got my next 5 ReTool app ideas lined up!

What do you dislike about Retool?

It's got limits on the number of users that can view/interact with your web-app, which for our use case means it's not well suited (we serve many low-value customers rather than a few high-value ones). But, as an internal tool for company use, it's great. Oh, and if you need it to be super pretty, I don't think it's for you. I'm sure it could probably be done, but its focus seems to be on utility first (which suits me fine).

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

1) stopping paying to manage infra that I don't need or want. Using ReTool has allowed us to replace an internal tool for managing user-access to our mobile-app. The big 'win' here is that on-going dev-time is now zero for this tool. ReTool handle it's upkeep. We built it, but don't have to worry about keeping the server up, or managing library updates, or other such things. My only future dev spend will be to add more features - which is exactly where I want my spend to be. 2) getting to *information* quicker We have weekly KPIs that are drawn from multiple data sources (analytics, stripe, our mongoDB). Previously we had to spend time in each to fetch the data we needed for those KPIs. ReTool does the manual fetching for me now, so I can spend more time responding to those KPIs

"Easy, Efficient & Fun"
What do you like best about Retool?

Super easy & intuitive platform for creating meaningful internal apps. Providing QA & product team with a lot of value with little effort. Great support team & community.

What do you dislike about Retool?

I've submitted a request a few months ago and after the initial response I haven't heard much. I don't get updates on newest releases and added features nor knows where to look for them.

"Very Impressed so far"
What do you like best about Retool?

I enjoy that Retool, as far as I can tell, is a javascript GUI overflowing with connectors. I haven't coded in javascript in 20 years yet still found it incredibly intuitive to sketch out my first application from start to finish within about a day, integrating feedback just as quickly. I was able to rapidly integrate back-end views I had created to support this without having to fiddle with connection strings or anything like that. I enjoy the fact that just about any input can be controlled by passing javascript statements, and that once you understand this the sky is the limit. I do not have enough experience with similar tools for comparison to identify deficiencies. I have also been using this tool for ~ two weeks, so asses my feedback in that context. Most of my experience is in analytics, working primarily in SAS, R, Python, and various implementations of SQL.

What do you dislike about Retool?

Retool is great for rapidly building new apps for internal users and iterating through them. It is very flexible and customizable. This makes it very powerful. However, it suffers the same risk in the development space as Excel has in the financial space: it seems subject to the whims of the user and could easily lend itself to nightmare code and nightmare maintenance. In the right hands, it is perfect for its intended use case but may draw lesser-experienced users into building infrastructure off of it instead of relying on the engineering teams where that work is more appropriate.

What problems is Retool solving and how is that benefiting you?

Rapid development and iteration for approvals and denials in our process flow. We can test ideas in real-time, identifying flaws before trying to engage engineers.
