What’s in a name? Quick Base versus QuickBase

This blog will take a look at the new Quick Base brand and highlight a few of the changes you’ll want to know about.

In an effort to highlight a few of our colleagues who feel just as much love for Quick Base, we wanted to share a recent Q&A session we had with our friends at CCI.

As a bit of background, CCI won the Catalyst Award at the 2017 Empower Conference, given to “the organization that creates a culture in which motivated people are empowered people. These organizations smash the limitations of “who” and “how” with the power of “wherever” and “whenever.” No wonder we’re such big fans. We not only love what they do, but how they do it.
