Quickbase combines the Flexibility of MS Excel with the Relational Database Functionality of Oracle, SQL Server or ACCESS into an Online, Cloud-style, Hosted Database Platform run and maintained by Intuit.
Designed with the business user in mind, Intuit's QuickBase is the #1 online database platform that is the fastest, easiest and most flexible way to help teams work together. Intuit also makes TurboTax, QuickBooks, Quicken and other industry leading software. QuickBase is a hosted Software as a Service (SaaS), where the server security and platform maintenance is handled by Intuit on the same servers that hold millions of tax returns and business data every year.
QuickBase provides one platform from which workgroups can easily create unlimited applications to automate business processes and improve communication and collaboration online. QuickBase applications solve critical business problems and help improve productivity and efficiency because they are tailored by the user to match the exact workflow and unique needs of their team - something complex point solutions or generic spreadsheets simply can't match.
Used by more than half of the Fortune 100, QuickBase is the only proven team collaboration platform that's perfect for business users - regardless of size, location or industry - while delivering the visibility and control IT executives need to manage enterprise-wide deployments in large companies.
What are some benefits of using an online database?
- An online database is a single repository. As individuals interact with online database software, their work is immediately integrated, significantly reducing questions of data accuracy and data inconsistencies.
- A Web Database enables larger storage capabilities. A web database doesn't limit your data or file storage options. A database application is scalable, so you can start small and increase storage as your online database software requirements evolve.
- Online Database software is customizable. With online database software, you can easily customize forms, fields, categories and reports—up-front or as you go—to match your specific business processes. You have the ability to apply permissions on any data in your QuickBase app. Two people can look at the same table, but see different data, reports and forms based on permissions you control.
- Web-based databases are available anytime, anywhere. An online database program is web-based software, which means they're easily accessible to your workforce, business partners, and anyone else you allow, wherever and whenever they work.
