In just one short week everything has changed.
There have been a few defining events in modern history, like 9/11 and the 2008 financial crisis, that have shaped people and businesses. They have made us ask questions like how do we come together in a time of crisis? How do businesses support their employees and communities while also driving their business forward?
We are in the midst of perhaps the defining moment of our times with the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has affected just about everything and everyone.
In order to help flatten the curve and reduce the spread of the virus we have seen, in just a matter of days: schools have closed, sports leagues have been suspended, businesses of every shape and size have been forced to close their doors, policies like social distancing and shelter in place orders have been implemented across the country.
We are all learning to adjust and adapt to this new world and help one another however we can.
At Quickbase we have been in awe of how our customers have used our platform beyond our wildest imaginations.
Businesses are quickly seeking new ways to adapt and work through disruption. They need fast and creative solutions to help businesses keep critical services up and running, and to keep the channels of communication open. That’s where we want to support any customer who needs help.
In just these last few days we have already seen businesses, state and local governments, and individuals step up and rise to the challenge to serve their communities.
Here are some examples of how customers are using Quickbase to quickly create solutions. We hope these examples will help guide other businesses or organizations in navigating this new reality.
