How Quick Base is Used in the Construction Industry

By James Cosman on Apr 3, 2018 10:49:06 PM

In the past, when it came to project management, the construction industry either had nothing, or they’d cobble together some antiquated systems. Or, if they didn’t rely on disparate systems, they relied on something huge, like ProCore, a well-known large construction ERP. To make matters worse, construction companies usually find a platform and stay on it for 10-20 years. It’s a simple truth that they’ve rarely embraced innovation when it comes to how they work. In all, this was too much for the modern worker.Untitled design-1

The Prime Rib Story

By James Cosman on Dec 28, 2017 12:45:48 PM

As we finish up an amazing 2017, I thought I’d share a more personal story that just happened over the holidays. So, let me set the stage. It’s Christmas Eve day. My wife and I were preparing to host a nice dinner for the rest of our family. (We’re fortunate enough to have double ovens, so we were well equipped for the onslaught of cooking/baking we were about to undertake.) Plus, we’d seen a lot of cool recipes on social media, so we were giving some new things a try, including what looked to be the coolest stuffing ever. But, without a doubt, the star of the show was going to be a massive, succulent prime rib.4095031872_d49dbbb7a5_b.jpg

So, it makes sense for you to bring a developer on full time in house, right? Well, not so fast.

When it comes to choosing a CRM, we see more and more people comparing Quick Base and Salesforce than ever before. It’s an interesting phenomenon because it leads to two cyclical use cases: users dump Quick Base to go to Salesforce, and then they dump Salesforce to come back to Quick Base. This blog will explore a couple of reasons why that keeps happening and will shed a little light on why Quick Base ultimately delivers faster implementations with quicker ROI.Screen Shot 2017-11-15 at 11.57.51 PM-1.png
