By Richard Crum on Sep 5, 2019 11:12:38 AM

For those of you who live in Denver, this blog will hit close to home. Literally. Since July 2018, it’s been nearly impossible to travel in or out of Denver International Airport (DIA) without encountering the MASSIVE construction project taking place throughout the main terminal. Originally scoped at around $1.8 billion (yes, with a “b”), the project has since spiraled out of control.

Quick Base & Bubble: The Perfect Pair

By Richard Crum on Jan 29, 2019 6:17:05 PM

As much as things continue to evolve in the world of programming, one thing doesn’t change: the quest to make things easier. Quick Base has already perfected this art, which is why it’s become the programming platform of choice for so many companies. But we wanted to take a little time in our blog to tell you about another resource that’s just as easy to use and can be paired with Quick Base to turbocharge your productivity: Bubble.Untitled design-2

Bubble is great for many reasons, including its intuitive, drag-and-drop interface and its sweet user portal. But instead of touting its features and benefits, we thought we’d show you them via a real-world case study.

The Rural Physicians Group works as a matching service for hospitals that have more patients than physicians. They match physicians with full time gigs to fill shifts at rural hospitals. They use Quick Base with a great deal of success in figuring out logistics, like which physicians they have and which physicians are credentialed where. They are also use Quick Base to forecast revenue, like what they pay the doctor versus hospital and how much they pay physicians to cover a set of shifts, etc.

What they wanted to do was start using that information to optimize the scheduling of physicians. Currently, they use an antiquated scheduling system that just isn’t efficient. As a service to providers (they think of doctors as clients too), they wanted to make the scheduling process more interactive. So, they turned to Quick Base and Bubble.

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.

Three of the most frequent objections we hear concern security, control/governance, and continuity planning.

Love it or hate it, Microsoft Excel is still a pretty entrenched piece of software for most businesses. And for good reason.

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.

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.
