As we mentioned in our last blog, we recently got back from Empower 2018. It was filled with all of the knowledge sharing you’d expect, as well as great networking and exciting announcements. Perhaps the biggest revelation of the week came on the first day when the Customer Award Winners were announced. We’re proud to say the company we nominated, Vumatel, won The Impact Award, given to the organization that demonstrates the results of driving ideas into action for their organizations every day.
We knew 2018 was going to be a banner year in many ways. In fact, we’d deemed it the Year of Experiences. And that’s why we’re so honored to be selected as Quick Base Partner of the Year for 2018.
For those of you who don’t know us, we’re VeilSun, a professional services firm that specializes in developing and integrating cloud-based applications. We also happen to moonlight as Quick Base evangelists. (Those last two statements aren’t accidentally related, by the way.) We love Quick Base for two basic reasons: it helps us quickly solve complex process issues and it allows us the flexibility to build custom systems exactly the way you want—minus traditional custom software costs.
If you’ve read any of our blogs, it’s abundantly clear that Quick Base is a Swiss Army knife of functionality for small to mid-size businesses. And yet, we find it really interesting (and more than a little perplexing, honestly) that a number of potential enterprise clients question whether or not Quick Base is a viable enterprise option. As you can probably guess from this blog’s title, we’re going to set the record straight by dispelling a few of the most common objections enterprises have when it comes to Quick Base. Three of the most frequent objections we hear concern security, control/governance, and continuity planning.
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.
We’ve talked about it a million times before, but it bears repeating: the goal of every company is to get as much quality work done as they can as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. VeilSun understands that perhaps better than anyone. After all, that’s the whole reason Quick Base was invented in the first place. So, it makes sense for you to bring a developer on full time in house, right? Well, not so fast. This blog will take a look at that idea along with some of the benefits of outsourcing your Quick Base development.
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.
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.
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.
