Quickbase Enhances Mobile Capabilities

Mobile-Ready Application Building Platform Enables Quickbase Customers to Quickly Build Custom Business Applications; New Quickbase Mobile App Gives Users Secure Access to Quickbase Applications from Any Smartphone

Cambridge, Mass. – December 4, 2018 – Quickbase, a leading business application building platform, today announced improved mobile capabilities that make it easier to securely access Quickbase applications on any smartphone. The introduction of these improved capabilities makes the overall experience of using Quickbase on a mobile device more intuitive and productive.

Today’s companies face a growing demand for custom business solutions, and as the workforce continues to become more digitally native, the desire to access these solutions on mobile devices has also increased. In addition, there continues to be a growing shortage of experienced mobile developers within IT organizations.

“At best, most firms field one or two mobile IDEA teams that tackle a customer-facing hero app – leaving other mobile experience demands unfulfilled. This imbalance between demand for mobile experience and supply of mobile development talent creates a gap in app delivery,” according to Forrester Research, a leading global research and advisory firm, (The Forrester WaveTM: Mobile Low-Code Platforms for Business Developers, Q3 2018).

To help deliver these solutions while offloading requirements on their IT departments, organizations are empowering business professionals to build the mobile-ready custom business applications they need.

Quickbase is a mobile-ready application building platform where business professionals can build custom business applications that are instantly ready to use both on the web and on any mobile device without any special mobile development. Quickbase is the only application building platform that empowers business professionals to build powerful business applications with no database, programming or mobile development skills.

Quickbase automatically generates a touch-friendly experience optimized for the small form factors of smartphones for every Quickbase application. This gives customers the freedom to communicate with all team members regardless of where they are by updating and sharing information within Quickbase in real-time from any device. Users can interact with reports and charts, and add, view, edit, search and share Quickbase data – all from their mobile devices.


New Quickbase Mobile App

According to IDC, by 2020, mobile workers will make up nearly 75 percent of the total U.S. workforce, or more than 105 million people. Quickbase applications can now be easily and securely accessed through the new Quickbase native mobile app, which is available for download on Apple and Android smartphones. The Quickbase mobile app is the most efficient way for field services workers and employees on the go to access Quickbase applications. The app more tightly integrates Quickbase with smartphone features, including the biometric authentication, making it easy and secure to access your Quickbase applications and data.

“When we’re working on a construction project, we have a number of needs that have to be handled from the job site. Quickbase mobile has made it easier for those field workers to file their daily progress reports digitally and for the warehouse to send the necessary equipment and materials so it arrives when we need it without any lags that cause delays to the project,” said Lee Gilmore, project controls manager at Alliant Systems, a leading design/build mechanical contractor in Oregon and Southwest Washington. “Processes that once took two hours, now take less than 15 minutes thanks to Quickbase. When we’re dealing with union pipefitters and sheet metal workers, the time savings in those hourly wages and possible overtime really adds up. The mobile app will further serve to streamline these efforts.”

"Today’s knowledge workers expect access to information in real-time from anywhere, but many organizations are still not using mobile to its fullest extent," said George Mashini, chief technology officer at Quickbase. "With our new mobile capabilities, customers have access to the same Quickbase applications on their mobile devices as on their web browsers, making it effortless to deploy to employees who depend on Quickbase in their day-to-day work out in the field. And since our platform is future-proof, every application built on Quickbase is instantly available on mobile devices, so our customers can just pick up their phones and start accessing their Quickbase applications today."
