They’re well versed in sitting down, together, to help define and plan a new app or define and document changes in your process.

And they’re experts in pursuing continuous iteration and collaboration within the build to help roll it out and ensure adoption. it’s about managing the constant change to keep up with your business needs and keep your app relevant. And that’s the real power of Quick Base—it doesn't stand for a moment in time, rather it continues to evolve.

How does Quick Base choose partners?
In order to ensure the highest quality end product, Quick Base has to be very selective about whom they choose to bestow the title "partner." A huge part of their vetting process entails reviewing the security chops, project accountability and overall reputation of the potential partner in question. Potential partners also need to have worked closely with Quick Base in the past, typically having direct contact with Quick Base contacts. In the larger scheme, Quick Base is an excellent building platform, but they rely on their partners to provide the individual building blocks—that's why choosing partners is so important to them.

As far as their QC process for their potential partners, we've already touched on a few key criteria. An additional point is they have to be financially sound—Quick Base wants to ensure they're aligned with equally successful partners moving forward. Quick Base also takes into account awards & reviews to help highlight the best partners. If other third-party reviewers are giving positive marks, it's a safe bet that company would make a good partner moving forward. On the flip side of that, once partners are in the fold, Quick Base ensures that partners that do well are always rewarded. VeilSun is an excellent example of this phenomenon. As they've won more and more industry recognition for being the highest rated solution provider, Quick Base has given them more opportunities to raise the brand profile together.

When it comes to working with consultants, Quick Base prefers very close working relationships. Why? Because Quick Base doesn't have professional services. Instead, they have industry expertise on hundreds of ongoing implementations along with inside information. So, because Quick Base understands there is a high value in professional developers, Quick Base works very closely with partners as their professional services firm. That means that for any type of important implementation, most partners end up acting as Quick Base's de facto entity, something that's for the client’s common good as well as general accountability.
