Quickbase Project Management With Gantt

If you’re already using Quickbase to manage your data, you know what an incredibly robust tool it is for a wide range of uses. That being said, the standard Quickbase timeline report doesn’t offer the kind of flexibility that most project managers need. 

Too often, project managers end up pulling data out of their Quickbase system and into another program only to find there’s no way to then port that data back into Quickbase. The result is a frustrating and cumbersome process that fails to leverage the potential of your existing database.

As the #1 Quickbase Solution Provider, we know just how robust and versatile Quickbase can be. We also know that on their own, out-of-the-box Quickbase extensions don’t always serve the exact needs of every company. Even if the tools in your Quickbase toolbox are working relatively well, it’s likely that there are opportunities to supercharge your apps and make processes less cumbersome and more efficient.

If you’re already tracking tasks in a Quickbase app, are those tasks specialized for people in the field? Does your scheduling tool offer the flexibility you need to make real time adjustments or factor in delays? Is the interface for your Gantt charts intuitive enough for all of your users? Do you have partners in other countries who need information automatically translated?

In order to maximize the efficiency in your lean construction projects, it’s important to streamline your pull planning process.

While the traditional sticky note approach to pull planning is a tried and true method, it’s also cumbersome, inefficient and full of opportunities for error. That’s why VeilSun designed QLean: to provide a virtual tool that offers continuous collaboration, built-in quality controls and exceptional time saving features.

How often do you run a check up on your Quickbase apps? Do you wait for a problem or frustrations to build and then go into trouble-shooting mode? If so, you’re very likely not getting the most out of your Quickbase applications. Just like people and cars, apps can benefit from periodic check ups to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Whether there’s been a procedural change since your app was built or a feature update you’re missing out on, it’s likely that your Quickbase app could be running more efficiently. And if you’re encountering problems, then it’s past time to sort things out. Nine times out of ten, it’s an easily diagnosable and correctable issue.
