In the ever-present quest to increase productivity across their enterprises, businesses of all sizes are turning to a very familiar name with an ever-expanding suite of products: Google. After seeing how successful small businesses have been integrating the Google suite of products into their workflow, along with Google’s proliferation in business in general, companies on the growth path are now seeking new ways to replicate that success on a larger scale. That’s where Quick Base comes into play.
As Quick Base experts and evangelists, VeilSun is always looking for ways to help other businesses use Quick Base to drive productivity. This post will show you a few scenarios on how you can integrate Quick Base, NetSuite and Workato to get more done in less time while also saving money.
Shakespeare once famously wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” As we saw Quick Base unveil its brand update at the Empower conference earlier this year, this quote really struck us. As we examined the idea of what’s in a name for the new Quick Base, we realized that, because the name itself didn’t actually change, the question we should be asking is: what’s in a space? 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.
Chances are you’ve had one of these happen to you at one point in time: Performance issues. Lag time. Pages or forms taking a long time to load. You can’t even pull reports. You just know Quick Base is failing you. We say…not so fast. Before you throw the baby out with the bathwater and dump Quick Base, take a step back and look at what’s actually going on. This post will help you assess your needs and show you how to fix it with a 7-point check up.
You won’t find bigger Quick Base evangelists than the team at VeilSun. But we’re definitely not alone. 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. More specifically, we wanted to pick their brains about an innovative initiative they’ve instituted called the Ninja Program.
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.
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.
