Intuit is known for its Quick software: QuickBooks, Quicken, and until recently, QuickBase, the shared database, low-code platform for developers and business analysts. That company was spun out on its own on April 1, and today it made a bevy of announcements, some of its first as an independent company.
Chief among those announcements were new integrations for QuickBase with both Microsoft’s Exchange and Google’s Gmail e-mail servers. Also announced today was an early-access version of QuickBase’s Webhooks, which enable applications and workflows to be triggered by external actions, or by changes in the database.
According to Karen Devine, vice president of marketing at QuickBase, “Performance, scale and security are always at the root of QuickBase Intuit is a trusted cloud provider, and they had us focused on serving high transaction volumes at low scale for small business consumers. We are going to be thinking about additional investments we can make in that area for enterprises customer, such as advanced forms of access management and authentication.”
As an independent company, QuickBase will be able to focus on the areas that Intuit didn’t prioritize, such as enterprise users. She said, currently, the trend for existing customers using QuickBase is to build one application on the platform, then move on to build many more on the same database.
“There’s a range where IT and the businesspeople can work together well with this platform,” said Devine. “As a result, we have more apps per customer on our platform than many others. We have customers with hundreds of apps on our platform.”
QuickBase also announced a new partnership with Workato today, which brings integrations with enterprise applications to QuickBase. These include Marketo, Salesforce, SAP and Slack.
