We’ve officially rolled out drag-and-drop integration and automation capabilities–enabled through Pipelines technology–that empower business users to easily build workflows.

The introduction of safe, secure integration and automation capabilities for business users makes Quickbase the most complete low-code platform for delivering operational agility and insights.

The new functionality, which compliments the platform’s existing developer-friendly, API-based integrations, enables anyone in an organization to connect data and insights across hundreds of cloud and on-premise solutions (including Dropbox, DocuSign and more) and build automated workflows for repetitive tasks, a practice commonly known as citizen integration.

“Today’s disruptive environment has left every business looking for ways to be more agile and move faster,” said Jay Jamison, chief product and technology officer at Quickbase. “Teams are seeking ways to work more effectively together—having data locked in siloed systems and relying on manual, slow processes are both nonstarters now. The integrations and workflow automation enabled through Pipelines represent the fastest way for businesses to transform the way their data is used, empowering problem solvers at the edges of the enterprise to work safely alongside their partners in IT to modernize unique processes and take action on information from across their operations.”

With Pipelines technology, anyone in a business–not just professional developers–can use pre-built integration channels to connect Quickbase workflows with dozens of third-party tools like Dropbox, DocuSign, Slack, and more, all without any coding experience.

Traditionally owned by IT specialists, complex systems and applications that required programming knowledge to connect can now be managed by business users—or “citizen developers”—using a highly-intuitive, drag-and-drop interface. The technology empowers IT and line-of-business developers to collaborate to modernize unique workflows to work across multiple systems and automate repetitive tasks, while also enabling governance through a common, secure platform that is easy to maintain.

We will continue to develop new integration channels based on customer demand. Integrations available today include:

  • Salesforce
  • ServiceNow
  • Workaday
  • Zuora
  • Marketo
  • DocuSign
  • MailChimp
  • Outlook 365
  • QuickBooks Online
  • Box
  • Dropbox
  • Sharepoint
