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.

The Prime Rib Story

By James Cosman on Dec 28, 2017 12:45:48 PM

As we finish up an amazing 2017, I thought I’d share a more personal story that just happened over the holidays. So, let me set the stage. It’s Christmas Eve day. My wife and I were preparing to host a nice dinner for the rest of our family. (We’re fortunate enough to have double ovens, so we were well equipped for the onslaught of cooking/baking we were about to undertake.) Plus, we’d seen a lot of cool recipes on social media, so we were giving some new things a try, including what looked to be the coolest stuffing ever. But, without a doubt, the star of the show was going to be a massive, succulent prime rib.4095031872_d49dbbb7a5_b.jpg

We’ve talked about it a million times before, but it bears repeating: the goal of every company is to get as much quality work done as they can as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. VeilSun understands that perhaps better than anyone. After all, that’s the whole reason Quick Base was invented in the first place. So, it makes sense for you to bring a developer on full time in house, right? Well, not so fast. This blog will take a look at that idea along with some of the benefits of outsourcing your Quick Base development.

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.
