What is Airtable?
We all know how important the ability to organise information and data in your business is. Airtable enables you to organise your data and save time which is why we are big fans and use it extensively with our automation clients.
Let’s look into it in more detail.
Is it a spreadsheet or is it a database?
Well Airtable is a new type of spreadsheet that lets you store structured data.
But, unlike spreadsheets, Airtable is also a database that makes it simple to find your most important information. It’s entirely flexible and perfect for keeping track of data. Plus, anything else related to your business or personal life
Why use Airtable
Airtable is the easiest way to capture, search, share, and analyse data. Representing large amounts of data in a simple format makes it easy to see patterns in your business. It’s an ideal platform for:
- Staying on top of sales leads
- Monitoring budgets or projects
- Posting customer service tickets
- Ideas for improvement
- And much more!
The possibilities with Airtable are endless.
Start a business project, a wish list, a wedding planning notebook, or a baby album. If you can dream it, Airtable probably has a way to store it! It’s flexible enough to adapt as your needs change—just rearrange rows and columns any way you like.
Anyone can get started using Airtable with no technical training. You can access great looking templates for spreadsheets, product catalogs, customer relationship management, project management, and more. Update them instantly whenever you want, and all of your data will remain safe – since it’s stored in the cloud, not on your computer.

What’s the difference between Airtable and Excel?
Airtable is a simple yet powerful database that lets you take control of your data. It translates spreadsheets into tables, lists into columns, images into Gallery views, making it easy to convert existing data into Airtable, and then tweak it to suit.
While Excel was originally designed for numbers and dates, Airtable can handle any type of data. It can take photos, store documents—even connect to your favourite apps like Dropbox and Google Sheets. With features like automation, mail merge and bulk deletion, you can integrate files from anywhere, or make hundreds of updates instantaneously.
