Why Trinity is the Right Partner for Your Quickbase Development Needs

Trinity’s mission is simple; work with clients to improve their efficiency, increase service levels and safety and upgrade the quality of their output. As with all businesses, we have competitors that offer the same type of services.  So, why choose Trinity as your Quickbase developer? We think we have a compelling story that over 465 past and current clients understand and have made the decision to choose Trinity.

Quickbase is a powerful, cloud-based platform for business owners. As a No Code environment, Quickbase enables businesses to develop solutions that can be deployed for any business process needed to help your company to grow and prosper.

But with so many features, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start when it comes to implementing and mastering Quickbase. Some companies choose to hire a Quickbase developer, but for small to medium-sized businesses, this expense might be out of the question. Even for larger clients, focusing on your core competencies can drive growth and profitability better than investing in Quickbase resources.

When contacting Quickbase about licensing the platform, you’ll learn that an option available to you is Quickbase Enablement Services. These services are designed to drive business impact and help businesses increase their operational agility. While these services are a good option, they aren’t the only choice. 

Trinity also offers Quickbase development services that might be more fitting to your needs. As a Quickbase Elite Partner with 25 years of experience in business process improvement, Trinity is an expert at developing and customizing Quickbase applications. We believe in transparency with our customers, so read on to understand the differences between Quickbase’s services and Trinity’s. 

What Do Quickbase Enablement Services Include?

According to Quickbase, their enablement services include “a personalized and proactive experience throughout your journey with Quickbase.” These services are designed to help you accelerate onboarding and adoption, build with speed and agility, and realize value from Quickbase sooner. Depending on the package you choose, you will receive the following:

  • Guided, collaborative, or rapid app development
  • Training
  • Admin foundations
  • Regular check-ins
  • Integrations and technical consulting
  • Support
  • App review and optimization
  • Platform architecture and app modernization

Those services sound great to someone who seeks to understand Quickbase further, but at what cost?

How Much Do Quickbase Enablement Services Cost?

Quickbase offers three packages for their Enablement Services: Essential, Premium, and Ultimate. Their prices range from $17,000 to $45,000 for the top two development support tiers, and clients must pay all charges in full before beginning the service, with no guarantee of success. 

For a business owner, this is a significant operating expense and one that might not seem worth it right away. You’ve already paid for the Quickbase platform, but now you need to build out your solution specific to your unique needs. While Quickbase might know its product well, there are other options when learning how to implement Quickbase applications.

The Pros and Cons of Quickbase Enablement Services: Quickbase Enablement Services are comprehensive but come at a cost. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons of these services:


  • Quickbase offers services, so they know the platform well
  • Three package options provide some flexibility
  • Customer service in the Ultimate tier and regular check-ins in the Essential and Premium tiers


  • Expensive ($17,000 – $45,000)
  • Recurring expense year after year
  • Payment due upfront with no guarantee of success (no pay-as-you-go option)

The Enablement Services are not designed to help you fully define your business process and requirements in great detail, develop complex applications, robust integrations, and custom add-ons. Trinity firmly believes that without a solid foundation from the start, your solution will not be scalable and easily adaptable as your business needs change over time

  • Quickbase Enablement Services do not account for proper business requirements gathering and scoping up front to define your short and long-term needs
    • These packages are typically designed to only fulfill an MVP (Minimal Viable Product), not a completed solution
    • These services are designed for teams that already have defined their needs or clients that are comfortable “building as you define”. Essentially, changing the tires while already in motion
  • You pay for every element of the Enablement Services packages, even if you don’t need or use portions of it
  • You need to dedicate the time to participate in Business Reviews, Value Assessments, Center of Excellence programs, and Strategic planning workshops because these are already factored into the price
  • The hours allocated to your Enablement Services must be used within a year or are forfeited

Quickbase Enablement Services vs. Trinity’s Quickbase Development Services

As we mentioned, Quickbase Enablement Services isn’t the only option for business owners seeking to get the most out of their Quickbase software. In fact, for many business owners, these services aren’t the best option because they are expensive, time-consuming, and aren’t customized to your exact needs.
