In 1967, Star Trek aired a famous episode (for Trekkies anyway) called “The Trouble with Tribbles.” In the episode, the Enterprise had a small, fuzzy creature onboard called a Tribble that seemed harmless. Over time, however, the Tribbles began to multiply at an exponential rate. Their rapid growth posed some very real challenges for the crew which they eventually overcame. You’ll have to watch the rerun so I don’t spoil it, but it’s definitely a fun one.
More than ever before, productivity is the name of the game. It’s crucial to be able to access information from wherever you are so you can get more done in less time. That’s why so many businesses are looking for cost-effective ways to help their teams collaborate more efficiently. With the anywhere convenience of Google Drive and the power of Quick Base, businesses are finding just what they’re looking for. And now, with QDrive, you can get the best of both worlds.
Microsoft Access has been a stalwart in the database space for years. Ever since its debut in 1992, businesses everywhere have trusted it as their go-to database management system for workflows and data tracking. But, as with all things technological, if it doesn’t evolve, it dies. And that’s what we’re seeing with MS Access now.
In the past, English was the only language option when working with Quick Base. Unsurprisingly, this language barrier kept Quick Base out of certain foreign markets. But today, VeilSun is proud to change all of that with our latest offering: QTranslate.
Empower is always a great way to get in on the ground floor to know what’s coming. And this year is no exception. In fact, we’re more excited about QuickBase and the future of the platform than ever.
We know you’re busy — time is always of the essence. You never seem to have enough of it and you want to make sure you make the most of what you do have. That’s why we want to tell you a little about the upcoming Empower 2017 conference. To us, Empower has always been worth the time, but this year’s conference is going to be extra special. How do we know? Well, we just got back from the QuickBase Solution Provider (QSP) Summit and are really excited about the things we saw and heard. As excited as we’ve ever been, in fact. There’s some innovative direction we’ve never seen before.
As one of the top reviewed solution providers for QuickBase, we know a thing or two about the best ways to use it to boost productivity and performance. And one of the best ways we’ve found to do just that comes from incorporating Workato. By letting you create a non-code based way to integrate cloud applications together, Workato gives you a quick and easy way to make systems talk with each other. This blog will take a look at why that’s important and offer four additional reasons why you should be using Workato to improve your workflow and output.

Norman Augustine, a former Chairman and CEO of Lockhead Martin, once said “A bad idea executed to perfection is still a bad idea.”Another writer pointed out that the inverse is also true: A good idea poorly executed is useless. I have had the opportunity to observe and learn from very effective and very ineffective leaders and have come to the conclusion that a primary difference between the two is their ability to execute – to actually get something done. Poor managers spend their careers planning and presenting. Good managers spend their careers executing and assessing.
Certainly, good planning and decision-making processes are extremely important to valuable business results, but too often planning hijacks the whole process. There are several concepts from the consulting world which might better explain this point:
Coming out of business school, somebody once told me, “If you design a solution correctly, everybody can be a winner.” It was up to the solution designer to capture every user’s requests, wants, and needs and to piece them together into a solution that creates high value for all of them. Soon after, I entered the real world of system implementation and I soon realized that this advice was purely, 100%, unequivocally wrong.
