Off-the-Shelf vs. Custom Software
You might be thinking whether Quickbase customized software is worth the time and expense to get up and rolling. Although there is an upfront cost and a learning curve when adapting customized software, many of our customers find that it is an investment that immensely pays off over time.
It is true that off-the-shelf software is easy to adapt and ready to be deployed. But, it will never be as customizable as an in-house solution and it will be less customized to your specific requirements. We often find that customized business solutions are worth the extra effort to get rolling. Your team has access to a more streamlined and customized platform that is perfect for scaling as your operation grows.
Here is a universal tip: developing software in-house is a solid option if you require extensive customization. There will be a strong ROI and scalability that would never be possible with OTS / COTS software.
That is where Quickbase can come in as a low-code business solution. At Trinity, we give recommendations based on the software needs and situations of our clients. If they are better suited to an OTS solution, we are always upfront and tell them as such. There isn’t any benefit for us to design software solutions that don’t have utility for our clients!
Quickbase API Integration
API (Applications Programming Interface) refers to the method that enables cloud-based programs, applications, and systems to connect with each other. In the Quickbase world, APIs allow companies to integrate Quickbase applications with other software solutions.
There are hundreds of applications that can integrate with Quickbase including accounting, CRM, document storage, case management, project management, legacy systems, and many more. We help companies develop custom applications on the Quickbase platform and use API integration to connect to the existing programs your business is already using.
Our customers use Quickbase APIs to:
- Enable Multisite Integration: Companies that operate multiple sites or data centers can easily deliver the information required by business teams, insurers, auditors, finance, and executives for simplified reporting.
- Increase Operational Efficiency: Streamline core processes effectively and create a more responsive, efficient business operation. This enables lower operating and maintenance costs on top of this.
- Centralized Location: Your company can save time by having a centralized location for information storage. Plus, it’s handy to quickly access and make use of data and information.
Quickbase Integration Made Easy
Most companies these days have custom software applications. Many businesses design them to enable more effective integration with existing systems. As we have seen, API integration is popular and is used almost every day! Examples like Dropbox utilize integrations for their file management software.
There are many long-term cost benefits of using Quickbase applications. There is an ease of scalability, greater effectiveness from automation, straightforward system integration, and solid customization.
Our slogan is that “If you can define it, we can build it”. Trinity is at your service when it comes to designing and mobilizing web-based (and mobile-based) software.
