Dave Bruton = Excellence

Dave and I have worked multiple applications covering operations management, forecasting, tax deductions, license management, contract approval, etc. Dave is always responsive and improves my proficiency. I’m now nearly self-sufficient, but any time I get stumped he quickly gets me back on track and gives me advice that prevents rework and unnecessary complexity. He is at the level of expertise I aspire to. Thanks Dave!

Excellent Design & Support Services

Everything from start to finish (and beyond) that Dave at Base for Business has done for us exceeds expectations. His expert knowledge coupled and project scoping/management skills led to a product that is a perfect fit. Many contractors say they'll be there for you even after the project, but Dave really means it. He takes pride in the success of his customers and goes the extra mile to make it happen. 100% recommend -- without hesitation!

Outstanding Solutions and Service

From my first interaction with Dave from Base for Business I have been absolutely amazed by his ability to quickly understand our issues and even more quickly implement solutions. I found Base for Business with an Internet search and, literally, cold-called Dave. I was immediately comfortable that this would be 'our Quickbase Guy'. I recommend Base for Business with absolute confidence.

A joy to work with!!!

I've been lucky enough to work with Dave Bruton since 2018. He was instrumental in moving our company from an old, outdated, Oracle based system to QuickBase. I could not be happier with his performance, work ethic, or dedication to detail. Anyone looking for an amazing QuickBase developer should hire him, immediately!!!

5+ Stars!!!

Dave Bruton is so great to work with! He is not only extremely knowledgeable in Quickbase, but he has also taken the time to learn our business and our needs. I don't think there has been a single scenario that we have presented to him that he has not had a solution for. He's fast, available, and continuously adds value to our business. We have been working with Dave for a few years now and I highly recommend Base for Business!

Fourth Large Project

This is the fourth large project I’ve used David on since 2012. He fast, knowledgeable, and doesn’t waste my time asking for lengthy requirement documents. He just gets it. And when I say large projects, I mean LARGE projects. These are full CRM/ERP system with connections into Quickbooks and other programs using webhooks and Zapier calls. The ERP systems had inventory, purchase orders, customer orders, plus internal systems. Couldn't say enough about David; just hire him.

Project Tracker

Dave and Base for Business has created multiple custom databases to track all aspects of our employees and projects. The level of detail is incredible to have in 1 software program. Anytime we need a modification, he is on it. Additionally, he has created long term capital planning tools to share with our clients. This tool has created a competitive advantage for us and we couldn't have done it without Dave's expertise and ability. We continue to rely on Dave and appreciate his partnership!

Good partner

David’s quick ability to understand our manufacturing processes and needs was an asset when building our Quickbase app. He is quick to respond and very precise. We plan on continuing to use Base for Business as our company grows.

Great Business Partner

We have been working with David Bruton for over three (3) years now and he is best in the business. We have tried other Quickbase Developers and none have been as knowledgeable and responsive as David has been.

Highly Recommend Base For Business

We were fortunate when we inherited our Quick Base platform that we also inherited a relationship with David and Base For Business. He helped us get up to speed a lot quicker than we would have been able to do otherwise. But his help has gone far beyond getting us started. I probably reach out to David a couple times a month for help from big new ideas to small desires I just can't quite figure out. We have a great partnership and jokingly (mostly) refer to him as the 7th member of our 6 man team. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to find a better way to do what they are doing now, or wants Quick Base to do something they didn't know it could do.

David Built my Company a Large, Custom Database

When I met him we were using "industry" software to run our lumber company but I found I had to keep creating work arounds in the software to get it to do what I wanted it to do. I approached David about building me a completely custom CRM, inventory management, supplier ordering, and scheduling system. On top of that, he built in a vendor managed inventory (VMI or Consignment) system that tracked $800-1.2m in inventory owned by my suppliers. The system was then integrated into our Quickbooks desktop instance. This was a HUGE project but David was amazing. I would present him with what I wanted and how I thought it should be implemented and in a day or two he would turn the idea around using a much sleeker, easier to manage design. This system was critical to our daily success. The features he built allowed us to implement many Lean Manufacturing principles into our business. Our inventory issues dropped to close to zero and we were able to send out more trucks each day because the information we got from the system allowed us to be much more efficient. If you need a custom, difficult design. David is your man. He is fast and incredibly knowledgable.

Hit a

Just a few thoughts about my experience with David Bruton at "Base for Business".... Dave has been instrumental in helping us to create and improve a tool we use with our Sales Team as a "mini" CRM. His ability to build the platform in a way that allowed changes during a recent re-organization made it possible to eliminate unnecessary downtime. I have always been impressed with Dave's ability to quickly understand what we are looking for, and then be able to build it faster then I could explain it. Recently, Dave has helped us by building some temporary applications that allowed us to use Quickbase as a testing ground for some key initiatives. Quickbase is a good tool made better by using experts like Base for Business who strive to understand your business, your use of the platform and how to best utilize for your benefit!

Base for Business adds VALUE to all your projects!

We have had the good fortune to have worked with David Bruton and Base for Business for the past 4 years. It was very lucky for us to have found David at the beginning of our Quick Base development process. There is a very good chance that we would never have been able to build our current enterprise level platform of application serving over 1,000 people from all over the country without his help. David has been a critical partner in getting us through some very tricky development processes. The thing I like best about David is that whenever we throw a few ideas at him on what we would like to accomplish, he comes back at us with some very well thought out solutions with things we would never have found on our own. He has taken the time to know and understand our business to where he can add value to every project that he works on.

Construction Job Tracker

Mr. Bruton invested the time to learn about our business and then created a job tracking program tailored to our needs. But, more important, he created a program that is flexible enough to change and grow with our needs so that our job tracking program will be the standard in the industry.

Dave Bruton and Base for Business

I have worked with Base for Business for the last two years. During that time I worked with Dave Bruton for both assistance in building a new business critical application and in maintaining an existing critical application he had previously built for us. Dave is always available, responsive to our needs and consistently goes above and beyond to exceed our expectations. Dave listens to our business needs and design concepts and then incorporates into them his extensive engineering and business skills to enhance and deliver a superior product. It is a pleasure to work with David and Base for Business. I would recommend their services and would be happy to discuss my experience with anyone interested in working with Base for Business and David Bruton.

Superior Partnership

Base for Business provides us with unparalleled support and is a vital aspect to our continued evolution as a business. The ability to request business critical data on an ad hoc basis and have it turned around quickly keeps us agile in response to business demands.

Extremely Talented QB Developer with Great Business Sense

I have worked with Base for Business for the last four years. During that time we have called upon them to build over 10 different applications that range from HR performance management, Business Continuity to an entire PMO portfolio management system. All of these applications are mission critical. David was available to us with little notice and met extremely tight deadline delivery dates. He doesn't just build what you ask him to, he uses his business intellect to enhance your design. He is great to work with, a strong communicator and extremely reliable. I would be happy to speak in person with anyone interested in working with Base for Business and in particular David Bruton.
