By James Cosman on Apr 11, 2019 10:52:47 PM

VeilSun is proud to have been awarded Quick Base's 2019 "The People's Choice Award." Now, we’ve mentioned this before, but we’ve never been huge fans of blowing our own horns. But coming back with this award from the QSP Summit, a big annual conference where Quick Base Service Providers, like VeilSun, get together and hear from Quick Base about the upcoming year, has us really excited!

How to Give Your App Personality

By Laura Walsh on Mar 25, 2019 9:32:21 AM

There are few things more satisfying for us than building an app from the ground up. But it goes beyond that—we like to know it’s going to get used. One of the best ways to make that happen is to give it a “personality,” a little bit of flair (shout out to Office Space!) that helps it stand out to the end user. This blog will take a look at three ways to give your app “personality” that is customized to the end user/customer. They are: name, blueprint phase, and user adoption (plus tweaks).Hello

Power BI: Supercharging Your Quick Base

By James Cosman on Mar 21, 2019 12:59:09 AM

What’s better than improving your productivity or increasing the ways you’re able to interact with your data? The answer, of course, is nothing. That’s why people have been using Power BI with Quick Base for years. But with a recent release, the way Power BI interacts with Quick Base has changed for the better. This blog will highlight the new Power BI connector while showing you how VeilSun’s expertise can make it matter for you.image

So, what’s all the hubbub about? Quick Base recently released a certified Power BI connector that allows you to pull data from Quick Base into Power BI. This is significant because it opens up hundreds of different report types that you can report on Quick Base data. Not only that, the connector allows you to mash it up with data from other systems. It enhances the Quick Base reporting capability because Quick Base has always been very table-centric (meaning you could only report on one data set at a time). But now, that’s in the past.

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.

Imperial Best Practices, Part 5: Real-Time Budget Accountability

By James Cosman on Nov 30, 2018 12:49:26 AM

This is it! The final part of our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” given at EMPOWER 2018. As a follow up to part 4, this entry takes a look at real-time budget accountability. Some estimates put the cost of building the Death Star at around $852 quadrillion. At that scale, we’re guessing budgets were also kind of a big deal. Down here on Earth, we operate with smaller numbers, but that doesn’t make them any less important. Let’s explore how Quick Base can help you make a galactic impact on your budget accountability.Screen Shot 2018-11-13 at 8.48.15 PM

Imperial Best Practices, Part 4: Managing Risk in the Field

By James Cosman on Oct 12, 2018 12:17:50 PM

We’re rolling ahead with part 4 of our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” given at EMPOWER 2018. As a follow up to part 3, this entry focuses on managing risk in the field. Considering they had to evade Force Chokes from their team lead, the guys building the Death Star were clearly well versed in how to manage risk. Let’s see how that plays out for the rest of us with Quick Base.Screen Shot 2018-10-09 at 11.49.47 PM
