Filling the Gap: How Quick Base Solves Enterprise Problems

We’ve talked before about how Quick Base really is the perfect solution for enterprises. It solves a lot for Enterprise IT because it’s a single, flexible, not pre-packaged platform that fits in so many places within the enterprise. Best of all, it gives them total control and complete governance with very little implementation. In this blog, we’ll take a little bit deeper dive into some more specifics of how Quick Base can solve enterprise problems.

To start off, we’d like to lay out some of the universal problems enterprises tend to face in their operations. Between their website, ERP/Accounting Software, e-Commerce, Enterprise Messaging (Skype, Slack, etc.), and Personal Information Management (Exchange, G-Suite, etc.), enterprises have a lot of moving parts that can cause a lot of internal friction. There exists a natural chasm between all of these elements due to the fact that they simply aren’t designed to work together. We refer to these problems as the Gap.

Common problems found in the Gap include:

  • Multiple sources of truth
  • Lack of executive reporting
  • Lack of accountability and visibility to supervisors
  • Lack of workflow and collaboration
  • Communication breakdowns
  • Customer Service issues
  • Process inefficiencies

Each one of these problems would be an institutional headache by itself. But add them together and you have a compounded effect that serves to drive costs higher. In an effort to address these challenges, enterprises tend to fill these gaps with spreadsheets and disparate, off-the-shelf software packages. Of course, those efforts fail because, again, spreadsheets and random software packages aren’t designed to actually fix the problem.

Quick Base is able to successfully fill the Gap because that’s what it’s made to do. Its inherent flexibility allows enterprises to use it to solve their unique problems. (Ironically, their ‘unique’ problems tend to fall somewhere in to the universal list we cited above.) Once implemented, Quick Base can have a positive impact on every aspect of an enterprise’s operations. HR, Marketing, Sales, Accounting Processes, Dispatching, Customer Service, Supply Chain, Marketing Management, Vendor Management, Project Management, Construction, Legal/Contract Management—all with full Executive Reporting.

No matter what industry you’re in (including construction), Quick Base can help you fill the Gap so your enterprise operates as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a line. We’re always happy to talk!
