When collaboration gets complex, Quickbase makes it simple

With centralized dashboards, robust integrations, and no-code capabilities, Quickbase’s easy-to-manage platform is designed to make collaborative work fast and efficient. This applies to the people running your projects, the process that keeps it flowing, and data that delivers the results you need.

Get stronger as your teams and data grow

Quickbase isn’t just a platform of data, it’s a unifier of it. Simple and secure data sharing amongst teams allows for more informed decisions making, greater accuracy with budgeting and timelines, and more collaborative decision making. Instead of having tons of data chaotically arriving independently from different sources, it all flows directly through Quickbase.

Success comes from sharing information, not siloing it

If you’re working across departments and even across organizations, your data can be securely centralized in one place, no matter where it comes from. No more wasted time searching for the latest versions of a spreadsheet or app-toggling to seek out information. With Quickbase, it’s no longer tedious and time consuming to find what you need on a large scale, it’s efficient and empowering.

Control the resources that power the delivery of your work

When delivering on the final milestones of your work, collaboration and centralized information becomes even more critical. When deadlines are approaching and time and money are of the essence, you need integration and visibility to power your work through to completion. Quickbase considers and accounts for the unique nature of your project throughout its lifecycle, so the finished product — including the delivery of physical assets — is as close to the planned projection as possible.

Frequently asked questions

Collaborative Work Management is a market term that represents a category of work platforms where teams, departments, and even entire businesses can manage their work in one place. The Collaborative Work Management market consists of vendors offering task-driven workspaces that support business users in work planning and execution.

Project and portfolio management (PPM) software manages project portfolios and the projects associated with each portfolio.  PPM software is used to organize resources and activities across multiple project portfolios as well as maintain interdependencies between portfolios.

Collaborative Work Management sits in the sweet spot of workplace productivity between ad-hoc collaboration tools and more niche offerings like PPM. It can be thought of as the connective tissue that streamlines work happening in disparate tools like your Microsoft Office or Google suite and email & messaging apps, and it provides a single source of truth for internal and external teams to create, plan, manage, collaborate, and report on work and processes.  

Portfolio and Project Management, on the other hand, represents a category of work platforms that are function-specific, and intended for planners to align programs and projects into portfolios. PPMs are designed primarily for project management offices (PMOs) with dedicated portfolio, program, or project managers, and they are much more cost-prohibitive.
