Quick Base Announces New Integration Features and Workato Partnership

New features support company’s vision of being an open and fully integrated platform central to customers' business application ecosystem

EMPOWER, NASHVILLE, Tenn. – May 12, 2016 – Quick Base, a leading low-code application development platform, today announced at its EMPOWER 2016 user conference several app and data integration features that provide citizen developers new ways of easily connecting Quick Base with other apps and automating business tasks and processes across systems. The integrations mark some of the first product updates following the company’s recent divestiture from Intuit, and are part of the company’s ongoing mission to make Quick Base a connected and critical part of customers’ broad ecosystem of apps.

“For apps created by citizen developers to maximize efficiency and insights, they need to work seamlessly with other parts of the business,” said Jeff Prus, VP of Product Management, Quick Base. “Our customers want to be able to connect to more systems and have more ways to automate tasks and processes both within Quick Base and across other systems. Integration and automation is critical for making better business decisions and uncovering insights more quickly. Today’s announcements are an exciting step toward making Quick Base much more flexible and open, with plenty more to come.”

The company has partnered with Workato, an enterprise-class integration service. Quick Base and Workato share a joint commitment to increase ease of use for citizen developers and provide customized solutions that complement the way line-of-business users actually work.

With Workato’s newly released Quick Base connector, customers can automate workflows not only within Quick Base, but between Quick Base and 150 other cloud apps and on-premises systems, such as Marketo, Salesforce, SAP, Slack and Google Sheets. Workato’s secure integration service supports complex business logic, conditional actions and multi-step workflows. Customers can accomplish all of this without writing a line of code and in a matter of hours or days versus weeks or months.

“When World Business Lenders selected Salesforce as our sales CRM, we needed to find a way to integrate its data into Quick Base where we manage credit decisions and loan processing to eliminate duplicate, error-prone data entry. We also needed to integrate Quick Base data back into Salesforce, ” said Matt Moline, Director of Information Technology at World Business Lenders. “We decided to use the Workato integration service because it provides a closer to real-time connection than all of our other options and could handle the large volumes we needed. Now, our Salesforce CRM and Quick Base platform run in perfect unison and our sales team is saving hundreds of hours per week of manual data entry.”

Additional Quick Base integration features announced today include:

  • Quick Base Webhooks: Designed for more technical app builders, Quick Base Webhooks helps streamline workflows by triggering actions in real time across external systems or Quick Base apps when data is changed in Quick Base. Quick Base Webhooks is currently in early access.
  • Quick Base Sync for Email—Gmail and MS Exchange: By connecting Quick Base with users’ Microsoft Exchange or Gmail accounts, Sync for Email automatically pulls email messages into a Quick Base table with no coding required. Quick Base Sync for Gmail is currently in early access. Sync for MS Exchange beta will be available in late 2016.
  • Quick Base Sync for CSV—SFTP: An extension of the Sync for CSV capability announced in January, the new offering will enable customers to connect to and pull CSV files from their SFTP server. This gives larger companies the ability to use their existing infrastructure and be in full control. Again, no coding is required. This capability will be available in late 2016.
