What Our Users Say

Dominique W
Assistant @ University of Zurich

I am an assistant at the University of Zurich where I help students with the management of the data they collect during their Masters and PhDs and have therefore been enjoying your software for a few months already. Seen that I am a biologist and not a developer much of my database designing skills are acquired through a long process of trial and error and I really enjoyed the speed and simplicity that dbdesigner brought into my work.

Jim Zack
Product Manager @ Hulu

I just wanted to say thank you. We have been using dbdesigner for past few years on a daily basis and it has allowed everyone on our team to save time. Simplicity of your modeler allows us to involve non-technical managers in the process and get timely feedback. We really appreciate all the useful features which have helped us complete hundreds of projects and made maintenance or revisions super easy.

Full-Stack Engineer

DBDesigner was the first one of it's kind and still the best out of all. Easy and straightforward to use compared to other similar services and products. I am a fullstack software engineer and having the right tools with good looking UI is very important to me. I would have been happy to pay long time ago and I am not disappointed you are limiting the free plan. None of the similar products have all the features DBDesigner has and yet they cost lot more. Upgrading my account now, this is well worth the price.
