Why Quick Base IS Enterprise Software

By Richard Crum on Feb 19, 2018 5:21:57 PM

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.

Why You Should Stop Using Microsoft Excel

By Richard Crum on Dec 28, 2017 12:45:43 PM

Love it or hate it, Microsoft Excel is still a pretty entrenched piece of software for most businesses. And for good reason. When you stop and think about it, you realize Excel is a lot like an old family friend. It’s hard working. Pretty reliable. But maybe not 100% living in modern times. This post will take a look at Excel in a modern context and will show you why so many companies are moving away from it.Screen Shot 2017-12-20 at 11.37.48 PM.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? 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.

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.

Smart Quick Base Governance: Managing the Tribbles

By Richard Crum on Aug 11, 2017 12:26:19 AM

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 somd30f09d323dccdac566f6720abf2c0aa770e1c4f.jpge 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.
