How Quickbase is Used in the Construction Industry

In the past, when it came to project management, the construction industry either had nothing, or they’d cobble together some antiquated systems. Or, if they didn’t rely on disparate systems, they relied on something huge, like ProCore, a well-known large construction ERP. To make matters worse, construction companies usually find a platform and stay on it for 10-20 years. It’s a simple truth that they’ve rarely embraced innovation when it comes to how they work. In all, this was too much for the modern worker.

Quickbase works to constantly keep their systems up-to-date.
