Top 4 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Workato

As one of the top reviewed solution providers for QuickBase, we know a thing or two about the best ways to use it to boost productivity and performance. And one of the best ways we’ve found to do just that comes from incorporating Workato. By letting you create a non-code based way to integrate cloud applications together, Workato gives you a quick and easy way to make systems talk with each other. This blog will take a look at why that’s important and offer four additional reasons why you should be using Workato to improve your workflow and output.

  1. Customization

In the past, there wasn’t a good, low code option to make systems talk to each other (i.e. QuickBase to Sales Force). Instead, everything had to be customized, driving up time and costs while killing the value. But with the advent of low code apps, Workato now allows people to build customized apps, ultimately letting you configure as the final piece of low code platform application development. You save time and money — and maximize value.

    Improve workflow

Every company is looking for ways to increase productivity and improve their internal processes. Workato lets you create end-to-end workflows with minimal effort. Whether its SalesForce for CRM, QuickBase for running your back office or NetSuite for your accounting package, Workato helps native systems do what they’re good at while combining them into a seamless workflow. In addition to creating end-to-end processes, Workato also handles integration between systems — from the very simple to the very complex.

3      “Techy approved”

Getting a system into place that both your sales team AND your tech guys love is often considered wishful thinking. Until now. Workato ensures that super complex integrations that were traditionally custom code only are always in your tool set. This versatility improves efficiencies (and makes you a much bigger hit with your tech department.) As a quick example, Workato can take very complex logic from System A, use it to query System B, combine those records together, cause an action in System B and then deliver results to System C. With Workato, the possibilities to boost productivity are nearly endless.

4       “IT approved”

Security continues to grow in importance for companies of all sizes. Workato acknowledges that trend by offering enterprise-grade security from the get go. Knowing it has stringent security in place for passing data, you can work with confidence. Workato even covers companies exchanging very large data volumes where security is paramount. We can’t stress enough how important it is for your company to check this box.

As a real-world snapshot of what integrating Workato can look like, we’d like to present the story of a viral media company we work with out of New York City. They’ve made QuickBase the central hub of their process. This has allowed them to connect QuickBase to NetSuite for accounting, to Google Calendar for article scheduling, to SalesForce for managing their ad sales, and to integrating with Wrike for managing their larger projects. Top to bottom and side to side, Workato and QuickBase can supercharge your workflows and deliver more productivity than you ever thought possible.
