Why QuickBase Tools?

While QuickBase is a robust, highly configurable database platform with many features and functions to run just about any type of application you can think of, we've identified some opportunities for enhancing the user experience.  We've developed a few "tools" that we believe compliment the core platform and allow you to create even more powerful QuickBase applications.



Below is a list of these tools, to view a Price List please register by clicking on the "Register" button above.  Registration only takes a few seconds and will provide you with access to additional information.  If you prefer not to register then contact us and we'll be happy to email you a price list.

Generate Word Documents from QuickBase that can be printed, stored and edited for other purposes.

Exact Forms Plus!

 

QuickBase provides users with the ability to print forms with it's "Exact Forms" functionality. We've taken that concept to the next level by allowing users to generate Microsoft Word or PDF Documents from QuickBase.



QuickBase "Exact Forms" will generate an html based page integrating your QuickBase data with a template that you create using a "macro enhanced" version of Microsoft Word, the rendered page can then be printed from your browser.



Our tool uses the similar concepts, without having to install any client side macros, and the final output from our tool is a Word or PDF Document that can be printed and/or stored for other purposes. The documents are available for further manipulation if necessary or to provide non-QuickBase users with access to them.

We offer the ability to store the documents in QuickBase itself, on your local webserver or with other web based data storage services such as Amazon S3.

Advanced delivery options for Email Notifications and Reminders

QuickBase Courier

 

QB Courier was designed to provide enhanced functionality when it comes to sending email 

notifications and reminders to users of your QuickBase application(s) AS WELL as NON users of your QuickBase application(s). 

 

A QuickBase application is used to define the requirements of each message "configuration".  Each individual "configuration" determines how, when and why messages are to be sent out for records in your QuickBase application(s).

 

There is a "Batch" component, an "On-Demand" component and a "Triggered" component to QB Courier which provides you with plenty of flexibility for controlling when email communications should be delivered.

PDF Stamper

 

PDF Stamper allows you to start with an existing PDF file and add variable data to it from your QuickBase application.
