What is Quickbase?
Looking for a great option for a low code application development platform? The Quickbase platform provides robust tools that a corporate team, department, or small business can use to build and launch diverse customized applications to solve business challenges Because it’s low code, it makes it easy to use, even for team members with little to no development skills.
Businesses and teams today rely on the unification of enterprise data across multiple applications such as task management tools, workflow, and asset management tools, ERPs, etc. in order to achieve maximum productivity. Companies have, in the past, invested huge sums of money on developing internal applications to bridge systems gaps with a resulting dependency on IT and development teams.
Quickbase brings the business process and technology requirements close together by making application development easy, even for users who have few development skills. With Quickbase, teams can build, deploy, and modify apps themselves, with little or no dependency on the IT organization. Applications built on Quickbase can solve single complex challenges or help to centralize company data, creating a unified repository for the team to work with. You can also accelerate application development on Quickbase with help from a Quickbase solution provider (if needed).
A key benefit of Quickbase is the ability to empower Citizen Developers to create and manage applications for their departments. Due to the low-code nature of Quickbase, these Citizen Developers can ramp up quickly and solve a wide range of organizational application needs.

Features of Quickbase That Help Accelerate Company Growth
- Integrates Enterprise Data Into a Unified Repository
Businesses that collect data from multiple endpoints often end up with data silos. Quickbase can serve as a tool to unify data from disparate systems into one single unified data repository. Firstly, this creates a high level of visibility into enterprise-level data. Secondly, users can build applications via Quickbase to leverage this unified data. For example, teams can build reporting to obtain more meaningful and accurate insights derived from data across processes.
- Allows Users to Create Diverse Applications to Solve Unique Challenges
Today’s competitive business environment demands innovative solutions. Businesses use a plethora of different applications to achieve a wide range of solutions. Even a small startup will, at some point, require multiple tools like data analytics for insights, ERP for customer relationships, data and task management tools, automated workflows for efficiency, campaign management tools, etc.
The increase in the number of business applications can create a demand that IT teams are not able to satisfy adequately. Quickbase takes this load off of the IT organization by giving business teams the power to build and modify applications themselves and to also do it in a fast and efficient manner. The tools provided by Quickbase are extensive, allowing teams to create a diverse range of applications with no limitation on requirements.
- Effortless Migration From Legacy Systems
Businesses relying on legacy systems find transitioning to modern solutions difficult. The reason is often the time and costs involved in migrating data and workflows from antiquated systems to modern systems. Quickbase solves this problem in two ways – one, by providing a solution to quickly build and deploy business applications to replace legacy systems, and two, by integrating with legacy systems so users can leverage data in the older system with the development power of Quickbase.
- Economical and Easy to Use
Each application has a lifecycle – design, development, monitoring, management, and upgrade. In traditional application development, each phase is executed on different platforms and requires different IT teams with knowledge on each specific phase and respective platform. This greatly increases the cost and time for development and continual application management.
Quickbase moves all phases of application development into one single platform and massively reduces the cost and time for application development. The low-code nature of Quickbase makes design, development, and upgrade quick and easy to execute. The entire lifecycle of app development becomes economical and easy to manage.
- Creates a Seamless Technological Ecosystem
Quickbase can bridge data, organizational departments, and enterprise applications. Applications across different business departments built on Quickbase can be natively integrated, and the seamless flow of data opens up opportunities for workflow automation and greater productivity.
For example, the sales team’s ERP system can be integrated with the marketing team’s campaign manager, which can be integrated with the analytics team’s analysis system. The marketing team can then automate campaign adjustment based on insights derived from the ERP and analytics system, and the sales team can personalize sales messaging through insights derived from the analytics system.
