We’re thrilled to have Michael Wacht (Twitter @Helm1943), Vice President of Operations, at Helm Incorporated, as one of our speakers at EMPOWER 2016. He will be sharing how Helm, a 2016 Transformation Award Finalist, used Quickbase to save $250,000 in administrative cost, and then continued this trend in almost every department in the company.

Over the past five years, Helm has transformed every aspect of its business using Quickbase, eliminating thousands of spreadsheets and hundreds of thousands of emails from manual processes and saving the company more than $250,000 per year in labor costs. Learn how Helm got started on its massive transformation process, the lessons company leaders learned, governance methodology and how the company’s streamlined digital operations platform serves as the foundation for innovation and growth. You’re bound to leave this session with some great ideas for using Quickbase to streamline many of your company’s key processes.

Michael will be leading the session How Helm Transformed its Business with Quickbase, A Practitioner’s Perspective at EMPOWER 2016. Hear this incredible story directly from the lead Quickbase champion and executive sponsor at Helm. Be sure to attend this session which will show you how to:

Michael explained that the tipping point in our culture came, “As the organization started to realize that Quickbase was removing technology as an impediment to progress. This collective epiphany was so powerful that it infused Quickbase and the citizen developer into the very fabric of who we are as a company.”

Michael holds an MBA in Executive Management from Northwood University, and has more than 20 years of technology, operations and fulfillment experience in both domestic and international distribution channels encompassing ecommerce, consumer, wholesale, and OEM markets. Michael is a multi-disciplined, results-driven executive that provides strategic leadership during periods of growth and critical transition phases, including organizational restructuring, implementing enterprise technology solutions, and implementing effective business and budget controls.

Michael is looking forward to participating in the Quickbase App-a-thon and meeting other passionate citizen developers at EMPOWER 2016.
