BOSTON – May 25, 2021 – Quickbase, the leading no-code platform for operational agility, today announced a new partnership with Lucid, the leading provider of visual collaboration software, allowing anyone to visualize complex ideas and bring them to life.
Companies today are challenged to keep up with the swift pace of business change, as 91 percent of businesses have altered their operating models in the past year. The rise of citizen automation is a key factor in helping companies adapt, but organizational and technical complexities hinder organic innovation and the adoption of new solutions.
Quickbase and Lucid help eliminate complexity by connecting Lucidchart to the Quickbase platform. Lucidchart is an intelligent diagramming application within the Lucid visual collaboration suite that empowers teams to clarify complexity, align insights and build the future – faster. Ideas structured and developed in Lucidchart can serve as a strong foundation to diagram a Quickbase no-code application, helping collaborate on new ideas and adopt technology-driven solutions to business challenges.
Lucid and Quickbase are working together to build cross-platform integrations that will make it possible to transform Lucidchart diagrams into fully operational business applications in Quickbase.
Ultimately, more seamless integration from concept to reality helps citizen developers to:
● Deliver Value Faster: Visualization capabilities allow for clarity and streamlined decision-making, helping accelerate pace of new solutions
● Collaborate Easier: Visualizing processes, requirements and potential workflows improves communication and collaboration with key stakeholders
● Build Applications Users Love: User feedback is faster and easier to incorporate throughout the application lifecycle
“One of the first things I observed at Quickbase was that our builders value collaborating with customers via diagramming tools like Lucidchart to modernize workflows and move concepts forward faster,” said Ed Jennings, CEO, Quickbase. “As we looked to further our vision of unlocking the full potential of our systems, information and people, Lucid was an obvious collaborator. This is a major step forward in building our ecosystem of citizen automation, expanding our capabilities that empower our strong community of customers to build a better future.”
“Lucidchart was created on the idea of helping democratize diagramming and process thinking, as people work across highly complex systems and processes,” said Karl Sun, Co-Founder & CEO, Lucid. “Our work with Quickbase helps advance our mission of helping teams to see and build the future. Anyone with a great idea for a Quickbase app can visualize and socialize it within our platform, build in Quickbase and create company-changing solutions from start to finish.”
“As we began to think through our complex workflows and processes in our business we utilized Lucidchart to visualize how everything is connected, that seamlessly took us into the build of our Quickbase application and made our vision a reality,” says Forrest Clarke, innovation team lead at Accenture. “Having Lucid and Quickbase more closely tied makes complete sense to bring ideas to reality.”
Both Quickbase and Lucid have recently expanded their technologies and resources to meet the demand for a broader set of people to have access to tech-driven solutions to business’ most pressing challenges. Quickbase hired 170 people in 2020 with plans to grow 200% through the fiscal year, while Lucid was named to the 2020 Forbes Cloud 100 and passed $100 million in ARR in early 2020.
