fibery vs airtable

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management.
Complex processes like product management,
feedback management, user research, software development.

Where Airtable
works better?

Database-specific cases (better Excel).
Collect and organize information in various domains (catalogues, lists, CRM).

We used Airtable for 1.5 years to manage our Software Development process but switched to Fibery, as we can use it to manage all our processes, including Soft Dev, Product Management, Hiring, OKR, Customer support, and more

Airtable
weaknesses

No documents to capture unstructured and text-heavy information (Feature specs, Ideas, blog posts, etc).

🦐 Base to base connections and relationships are weak. Syncing two different databases isn't very reliable or easy to do.

Basic board view - can’t change cards layout, cant have horizontal lanes

Very basic charting feature.

Poor information organization, navigation between bases is slow.

fibery vs notion

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management for medium and large teams. Complex processes like product management, feedback management, user research, software development tracking.

Where Notion
works better?

Personal life organizer. Small/medium company wiki. Work management for teams with simple processes.

EduDo switched to Fibery from Notion, as we needed a customizable tool that can adapt to a dynamic team and grow with it. Fibery is the most flexible tool that I've ever seen, and it has great potential to scale.

Notion
weaknesses

Databases are harder to connect and it is not possible to create deep hierarchies

There are no charts and reports to visualize data

It is not possible to group information by relations in Boards and other views

🦐 No automation rules and action buttons

Formulas are not very powerful for hierarchical data structures

No Whiteboard View to draw diagrams

Bi-directional links are rudimentary

fibery vs coda

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management for medium and large teams. Complex processes like product management, feedback management, user research, software development tracking.

Where Coda
works better?

Mobile apps. Complex work processes that don't demand heavy text scenarios (roadmapping, product management, etc). Overall, Fibery and Coda areas of applicability are quite close.

I had tried Coda, Notion, and a bunch of other similar tools, but the problem always was that it felt like a system built by others. With Fibery, it feels like the opposite. I build the system, and it just provides an interface to work with my data.

Coda
weaknesses

🦐 For any complex process Coda quickly becomes extremely hard to maintain and it has many workarounds to make it work

No good way to connect Docs and form a connected workspace

Charts are very basic and limited

Timeline View is very restrictive, Board view is weak and not fully customizable

No Whiteboard View to create diagrams

fibery vs clickup

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management for medium and large teams. Complex processes like product management, feedback management, user research, software development tracking. Knowledge management and text-heavy processes.

Where ClickUp
works better?

Projects and tasks management for small and medium teams.

Fibery is robust, but super simple to use and very customizable. Perfect solution for product teams and more. Wish I knew about it sooner β€” it kicks Jira's, ClickUp's, and all other tools ass.

fibery vs monday

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management for medium and large teams. Complex processes like product management, feedback management, user research, software development tracking. Knowledge management and text-heavy processes.

Where Monday
works better?

Task management in simple processes for small and medium companies.

We looked at a variety of solutions including Aha!, Coda, Monday, Product Plan, and Jira. Some of them lacked the customization we needed to continue utilizing our existing processes while improving them over time. Others were too opinionated or required obscure customization and offered a lackluster UI in doing so. When we discovered Fibery, it was amazing how much we were able to model the tool to our processes within a few hours.

Monday
weaknesses

🦐 Poor support of text-heavy processes

Hierarchies are impossible to create

Relations are very basic and incomplete

Very limited formulas

No Whiteboard View to create diagrams

No bi-directional links

Fibery vs. Trello

fibery vs trello

Where Fibery
works better?

Processes and work management for medium and large teams. Complex processes like product management, feedback management, user research, software development tracking. Knowledge management and text-heavy processes.

Where Trello
works better?

Task management in simple processes (recruiting, marketing tracking, basis projects management) for small and medium companies.

I was totally captured by the way Fibery provides the tools to an organisation to build its own process, instead of prescribing a certain way of doing things. For us, it replaced Jira and Trello which we used at different times with varying levels of success.

Trello
weaknesses

No documents. No support of text-heavy processes

Trello is flat. Hierarchies are impossible to create

No relations or bi-directional links

🦐 It is very hard to manage several teams and coordinate work for several teams / projects

Fibery vs. Jira

fibery vs jira

Where Fibery
works better?

Startups. Fluid engineering teams that evolve development process frequently. Tight cross-functional teams with dense communication between products and development roles.

Where Jira
works better?

Engineering teams that don’t like to take any risks imposed by the new tools. Large & mature engineering teams.

I’m a process experimenter, so Fibery gives me the flexibility to easily play without getting bogged down. I have used a variety of tools and found them often to be too opinionated, too narrowly defined, or with clunky UI/UX. We use Fibery to replace a classic post-it developer wall, Jira, Confluence, and Trello-style tools.

Jira
weaknesses

🦐 Old, mature product that evolves slowly and remains an issue tracker in its DNA.

Needs many add-ins and extensions to cover different parts of processes, like product management or retrospectives tracking

Very complicated configuration and maintenance
