We’re excited to showcase Jacob MacIntyre, Business Analyst at Portland General Electric, as one of our amazing Intuit QuickBase customers. He will be speaking and sharing his ideas at our inaugural event, EMPOWER 2015, this May in downtown Chicago! Register Now!

Portland General Electric started using QuickBase about 9 months ago and currently has two large QuickBase apps in production, a few small ones, and several more in the making. Of the two large apps, one is a viewer for data in a large enterprise application that is difficult to navigate, and the other is a custom project management application.

From Jacob's experience, he joked, "Sometimes QuickBase solves problems too quickly. You actually have to be careful how fast you present solutions to folks who have been doing things the hard way for a long time.” Suggesting new technological alternatives to historical problems can be met with significant resistance while working in a traditional organization. Implementing change can be challenging – especially when it comes to getting your teams on board."

Jacob will be co-presenting, “Spread the QuickBase Love: Strategies for Successful Adoption,” at EMPOWER 2015. Don’t miss this session which will show you how to successfully have your users adopt and welcome a new app during the roll out phase from Jacob's experience.

While at #EMPOWER2015, Jacob is looking forward to meeting like-minded QuickBase users and attending the ItDuzzit and the Code Pages sessions, since they are both exciting ways to extend QuickBase. He has 10 years of varied experience in the heavy construction industry, working as an estimator, a project engineer, a planner/scheduler and a project manager. More recently he's spent his time in the electric utility industry optimizing Enterprise Asset Management and Resource Planning systems and processes. He is a QuickBase addict, a data analyst, a change catalyst, a father of four, and a lifetime student.

This is a rare opportunity to get first-hand knowledge and insights from our QuickBase experts like Jacob! So register for EMPOWER 2015 today!
