We had a wonderful experience working with the Data Collaborative. They were flexible to meet our crazy demands and developed a product that works for our business and the volunteers who interact with the product. We highly recommend working with the Data Collaborative.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you Call Quick Base for help?
This is one of the questions that we are asked most frequently. You get stuck, you want to call Quick Base, but you can't find a phone number. The reason for this is that Quick Base does not publicize a number. Their support is based on a ticket system: you submit a ticket and they get back to you, either via email or telephone.
But you do have options:
You can submit a support ticket.
If you worked with a sales representative when you originally purchased Quick Base, you call them directly.
You can also call us. We have been providing support for Quick Base longer than anyone. Our service is provided for $165/hour with a 15 minute minimum. See Quick Base Support for more details.
Is Quick Base right for me?
Not an easy question to answer. If you have an organization that is exactly like a thousand others (like a doctor’s office, or a public library) then there is probably dedicated software build for your exact needs. But if you have an unusual business, or a business that you conduct in an unusual way, then Quick Base is the smartest and fastest way to get your data into a well-structured and easy-to-use database.

We are committed to initiating projects within a maximum of two weeks from receiving your deposit and signed agreement.
