Quickbase empowers Foodstuffs to deliver on time and on budget
Quickbase’s no-code platform empowered the Foodstuffs team to create an entire property portfolio management ecosystem. The application tracks over 800 projects, with nearly 400 data fields for each project, and analysis available via over 150 bespoke reports. This now serves as the single source of truth for all property projects.
With all of Foodstuffs' property data now contained in one location, it is much easier to access real time insights and ensure accuracy of the reporting. The flexibility of the application means users can filter easily by development type, work stage, region, contractor, employee, and many more fields.
With the Quickbase application, they can track:
- Store performance, compliance & regulatory reporting
- Allocated capital expenditure and on-target spending
- Scope and risks for every project
- Construction timelines
- Contractor performance
- Project activity & value by region, brand, employee, contractor
Steven’s favorite aspect of the application is the “store-on-a-page” view the team created.
“This view serves as the corporate memory for all properties,” he says.
In a few seconds, his teams can dial into any store within their portfolio to understand the history, ownership, performance, or check on the status of a construction project.
The property ecosystem Steven’s teams have created has made them the source of truth for the entire organization. Stakeholders from across the business, including company execs, turn to his team for accurate data to make strategic decisions.
Since adopting Quickbase, Foodstuffs has gone from wasting 25% of every CapEx dollar spent to delivering projects consistently 5%-8% under their initial budget. They have also reduced project delays by roughly half. The teams have created accurate benchmarks that make it easier to track the progression of every single project. Additionally, their data is key for their long-term planning, informing the three and ten year plans the organization creates.
In the end, Quickbase has given Foodstuffs more trust in more accurate data. Now, it's easier to reinvest in their stores, launch new projects, and effectively serve the needs of their customers.
Quickbase is now “an indispensable part of how our property teams and key stakeholders across the business access our portfolio data and capital projects," says Steven.
