Quick Base versus Salesforce

By James Cosman on Nov 30, 2017 7:01:17 PM

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

What’s in a name? Quick Base versus QuickBase

By Richard Crum on Oct 4, 2017 3:13:48 PM

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?

Q&A with a Quick Base Ninja

By Richard Crum on Sep 6, 2017 1:46:00 PM

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.

What would you say...you do here?: Execution is Everything

By James Cosman on Jan 25, 2017 11:05:27 PM

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:
