Among the most ubiquitous project management tools out there, Smartsheet is a handy resource for simple data entry and tracking. However, as a project management tool, there are a number of key areas where it simply falls short. When making the comparison between Quick Base vs Smartsheet, the versatility, security and range that Quick Base offers make it the better choice for any kind of large-scale project.
As one of the most adaptable and user-friendly tools on the market, Quick Base can help you build custom workflows for virtually any of your organization’s unique needs. Whether it’s simply improving your scheduling workflows or helping you manage digital pull planning for lean construction, Quick Base is exceptionally versatile. Its low-code, user friendly structure also means you can build a custom app without a sophisticated development team on staff. Working with a Quick Base Consultant, however, might be a better, more efficient and readily accessible solution to getting your app built quickly and effectively.
As the #1 Quick Base Solution Provider, we know just how robust and versatile Quick Base can be. We also know that on their own, out-of-the-box Quick Base extensions don’t always serve the exact needs of every company. Even if the tools in your Quick Base 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 Quick Base 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?
Regardless of industry, ensuring the health and safety of your employees and customers is vital to keeping your doors open. The COVID-19 crisis has ushered in a whole new reality in terms of necessary safety precautions for everyone. Keeping up with state regulations, federal guidelines, and CDC recommendations, can be a lot to manage, even with an entire department dedicated to compliance.
Regardless of size, your company needs to adapt quickly to the new normal. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be an overwhelming or expensive process. VeilSun has the experience and expertise to build custom, flexible, low-code tools to help your company stay in COVID compliance, keep your employees safe and keep you open for business.
How often do you run a check up on your Quick Base 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 Quick Base 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 Quick Base 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. Whatever is going on, it isn’t an issue with Quick Base — it’s a problem somewhere in the app itself.
Right now, we know it’s not business as usual. But, as your business continues to adapt its operations for continued remote work or a reduced staff reopening, this could be an opportunity to uncover new efficiencies. At VeilSun, we’re offering free Dream Sessions to help you evaluate four core areas of your business processes.
A Dream Session is an opportunity to collaborate 1:1 with an experienced Quick Base consultant to help you realize your Quick Base Dream. Together, we’ll examine what solutions apply specifically to your business challenges and can be deployed to help you have your most efficient year yet.
Across the globe, businesses are scrambling to adapt to the radical shifts in daily living brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. As most of us have experienced first-hand, transitioning to a virtual work environment can disrupt business processes and your overall efficiency.
Don’t let the transition to remote work derail your business entirely. While you may not have had systems in place that are easily adaptable to the new work-from-home realities, you don’t have to invest in expensive or tremendously complicated new software programs. There are many tools and strategies you can quickly implement to get your company set up for remote work.
Chances are you’ve had one of these happen to you at one point in time: Performance issues. Lag time. Pages or forms taking a long time to load. You can’t even pull reports. You just know Quick Base is failing you. We say…not so fast. Before you throw the baby out with the bathwater and dump Quick Base, take a step back and look at what’s actually going on. This post will help you assess your needs and show you how to fix it with a 7-point check up.
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 some 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.
