CAMBRIDGE, MA and CUPERTINO, CA – May 24, 2018 – Quickbase, a leader in no-code application development platforms, and Workato, a platform for intelligent automation, today announced a joint reseller agreement whereby Quickbase customers will be able to purchase and take advantage of Workato’s features through their existing account. With the agreement, customers and prospects benefit from a tightly-integrated joint no-code platform, and get access to powerful workflows across the more than 300 applications supported by Workato, including Salesforce, Slack, SurveyMonkey, Netsuite and Marketo.
“We’ve been working with the Quickbase team for a few years, and after seeing the value our joint customers were getting, a deeper partnership felt natural,” said Vijay Tella, CEO at Workato. “Business users don’t always have the resources or coding skills to create apps and automate workflows to address their needs at work, and if they are technically savvy enough to do so, they often have other priorities to balance first. This partnership makes it much easier for business users to build and connect apps quickly without the friction of bringing in a consultant or a third party.”
“Workato and Quickbase share a dedication to making it easier for workers to do what they need to get done, without complicated development projects and coding,” said Rick Willett, CEO at Quickbase. “By integrating Workato within Quickbase, our customers will benefit from a true end-to-end no-code framework that offers real-time updates and agility for business users.”
The market for SaaS-based business apps is growing quickly, and by 2021 75 percent of total cloud workloads and compute instances are predicted to be in SaaS form, according to Cisco. As businesses use an increasing number of SaaS apps to run nearly every part of their business, organizations are experiencing an increasing number of data silos. With Workato and Quickbase, businesses can create apps that solve their needs while housing whatever data they need in one place automatically.
The two companies first partnered in 2016 through a referral partnership announced at Quickbase’s annual EMPOWER conference. Since then, the companies have seen an average of 50 integrations each from over 100 joint customers, and both companies have received recognition in analyst reports for their no-code tools: Quickbase, as a leader in the 2017 Forrester Wave: Low Code Platforms for Business Developers, while Workato debuted as a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service and a leader in the 2016 Forrester Wave: Dynamic Integration Platform as a Service.
"For the last 10 years Schellman & Company has relied on Quickbase to create state-of-the-art internal applications that help us be more effective and work smarter," said Ty Shewmake, CTO of Schellman & Company, LLC., a global provider of audit and attestation services. "Thanks to Workato and Quickbase's partnership, we are now able to automatically integrate our apps with all the other critical cloud software we're using to run our business such as WebMerge, HubSpot and QuickBooks. This tight integration is saving us hundreds of hours each year, on average.”
Workato is available now to Quickbase customers at special rates.
