CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March. 19, 2020 - Quickbase, the low-code platform for continuous process innovation at enterprise scale, today announced a comprehensive program to provide critical support to companies as they manage through business disruption, including free access to organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, such as healthcare providers, governments, educational institutions and nonprofits.
Quickbase is offering its software and resources to help organizations address the unique challenges presented by COVID-19 and related operational disruptions. It includes:
- Free access to create and use COVID-19 solutions through September 30th
- Templates for the most common emergency response applications
- Expert onboarding, support, community resources and additional tools for customers
“In the face of the unimaginable challenges presented by the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve been inspired by our customers, who are driving innovation with Quickbase to flatten the infection curve and keep businesses and communities moving,” said Rick Willett, Quickbase CEO. “With this program, our efforts are designed not only to help our existing customers in a time of crisis, but to also share ideas, practices and applications that any organization can use to respond to the threat and to continue to do what they do best under any conditions.”
Free access for organizations on the front lines
In recognition of their essential role in mitigating the impact of COVID-19 in our communities around the world, Quickbase will be accessible for free to qualifying organizations on the front lines of the crisis, including healthcare providers, governments, educational institutions and nonprofits.
“We recognize the importance and difficulty of the effort to respond to the impact of COVID-19 on our communities, and we’re committed to helping make those efforts successful,” Willett said. “Offering free access is one small way we are working to support the organizations doing this important work every day.”
Organizations on the front lines of the crisis will be able to quickly create workflows to manage key processes, such as tracking assets, coordinating resources, maintaining compliance, managing equipment, collecting data and more.

Emergency response application templates and community support
Quickbase customers have been actively using the low-code development platform to turn unique emergency response processes into connected software applications, and the company is now sharing the growing number of practices and templates with anyone who wants to do the same.
One example is Orleans Parish Communication District (New Orleans 9-1-1/3-1-1), where a massive spike in residents seeking resources and the need for tracking cases required new, digital processes.
“With many of our city’s residents being impacted by the spread of COVID-19, we needed to be able to quickly respond to a high volume of requests and meet the needs of our most vulnerable populations,” said Tyrell T. Morris, MBA, CPE, executive director of the Orleans Parish Communication District (New Orleans 9-1-1/3-1-1). “We were able to quickly create a series of applications using Quickbase to manage our changing needs, and to date, we’ve been able to help thousands of citizens, visitors and business owners with their concerns."
Other examples include a worldwide manufacturer managing new compliance requirements across global factory locations and a delivery services provider tracking COVID-19 cases and assessing business impact.
“Great organizations do great things in times of adversity. It’s been thrilling to watch our customers employ fast, creative problem solving to keep critical services up and running at a time when it matters most,” said Neil Forbes, vice president of customer success at Quickbase. “Our Quickbase community has always been a source of pride and inspiration for us, but today, it’s even more so. We’ve seen incredible energy within our builder community around one thing: How can we help one another?”
To support fast development of applications, Quickbase has pulled together a series of templates, built both by customers and Quickbase employees, supporting emergency response and business continuity. Included is a comprehensive emergency response application template, with functionality for communication tracking, remote worker asset management, travel restriction oversight, CDC updates and more. More applications are being rolled out daily, accessible on the Quickbase App Exchange.
Expert onboarding, support, community resources and additional tools for customers
While Quickbase has shifted its operations to a remote model, the company continues to deliver its services uninterrupted, including onboarding, 24/7 access to support and on-demand training.
