The simple productivity tools designed to enable collaborative work are great for individuals managing tasks, sharing and reviewing documents, and understanding progress at a high level. Similarly, collaborative work management (CWM) tools can improve the way you manage individual teams and projects. These fall short of what modern work needs, unfortunately. Despite the recent success of CWM platforms, companies delivering complex programs still find themselves looking for more.
What they are looking for is the biggest opportunity a company has for scale and growth: managing highly complex programs that impact your functions and departments across your business every day. The cross-functional supply chain management, the real estate portfolios that require collaboration, the building projects that include multiple departments. The big, sticky work that drives your success.
Empowering the Dynamic Work Enterprise
To get across these complex operational processes and systems, standard technology won’t fit the bill. And investing in a new platform or tool for every single unique, complex project in your portfolio doesn’t make sense.
That’s where Quickbse’s Dynamic Work Management platform can unlock the potential of your people and empowering teams to customize how they manage each of their projects—all while keeping the control in IT’s hands through dashboards and reports. It goes beyond the ability of a ‘super-spreadsheet.’ It gives business innovators the ability to build enterprise applications and integrations without code. At the same time, IT can retain control over who builds and sees what.
Our research found that people are using 10 different systems on average to manage their projects. This means 10 different sets of information, and at least 10 different ways of interpreting what’s actually happening. Effective collaboration is nearly impossible. And it’s never the same 10 for every organization: our research found 77 different platforms that organizations use for their complex work. Quickbase’s no-code platform simplifies this, letting you connect your existing technology and create a single place where your people can find exactly the information they need, from any system at any time – without the clutter.
A partner to tackle your most critical work
At Quickbase, we want to help you accomplish your goals – particularly the ones that drive the focus of your functions and departments. Our platform helps you address the challenges at this level: those that impact the most people and processes across your business, but are underserved by existing technology in the market. We believe that solving the critical challenges in this space will usher in a new era of Dynamic Work.
And we think we’re on to something here—with over 20 years’ experience and nearly 6,000 customers, we’ve been able to deliver incredible results for our business and our customers. The more we see our customers succeed with their projects, from innovating prefabrication projects to managing complex order management, the more we feel confident in our vision.
Instead of leading existing categories, we’re more concerned with continuing to establish that Dynamic Work Management is truly the way modern work gets done, and filling the gaps that Gray Work creates.. That starts with clarity on goals, the people best equipped to solve them, and the ways that everyone’s work can impact them. And then attacking that work, as we like to say, All Together Now.
The right tools will let you do your work. Connecting those tools and the people using them with Quickbase will truly power this new era of Dynamic Work.
