5. A Platform for Organizational Agility
Organizations that invest in wide deployments of Quickbase see the highest returns. At many companies, Quickbase is more than just a bridge or gap-filler — it’s a strategic platform for continuous improvement, empowering the business to adjust and flex to changing business conditions.
For example, Riverbed is in the tech space and helps improve application performance across wide area networks. The company started using Quickbase for contact management within their PMO and then quickly extended it to their Revenue Accounting team to streamline and automate a monthly general ledger and journal entry reconciliation process. Previously they had to create a hardcopy in a new thick paper binder every month for this. Through champion evangelism within Riverbed, Quickbase was quickly adopted by the Customer Support group to assist them in running a more efficient help desk.
Today the company boasts a Quickbase ecosystem of 47 interconnected apps where data easily flows between those apps and processes are automated across departments. And the benefits have been significant. For instance, when the finance team connected their data with the information security team via Quickbase, they ended up automating their monthly financial close process faster than they ever had before and in compliance with their corporate policies. For them, that truly represented organizational agility.
Like Riverbed, we often see our customers start and succeed with Quickbase in one department and then roll it out to others. The more collaboration and automation that occurs between these departments, the more value Quickbase delivers to their business. In fact, we see a strong correlation between the spread of Quickbase across departments and a significant rise in efficiency, profitability, competitiveness, and growth.
