, the collaborative platform-as-a-service that allows
business people to create their own custom applications without writing
code, announced the opening of its first annual user conference, EMPOWER
2015, which began Tuesday, May 26th and extends through
Thursday, May 28th at the Hyatt Regency here in Chicago. EMPOWER
was created to offer Intuit QuickBase customers an annual forum
to share their experiences, challenges and ideas for best practices
around driving digital transformation within their organizations.

At EMPOWER 2015, Intuit QuickBase customers and partners from around the
world will be on hand to attend more than 30 educational sessions and
workshops featuring QuickBase users and industry experts, including
Henry F. De Sio, former COO at Obama for America, and John Rymer, VP and
principal analyst at Forrester Research. Attendees will also learn about
how QuickBase is helping accelerate employee and team innovation
resulting in the dramatically improved ability to solve core day-to-day
“get work done” business challenges.

“The rise of the citizen developer has forced a shift in thinking about
the traditional divisions between line of business and IT,” said Allison
Mnookin, vice president and general manager, Intuit QuickBase. “The
lines are blurred beyond recognition, so Intuit QuickBase’s focus is on
empowering those closest to the problem to take an active role in
solving it with technology. This digital transformation is giving rise
to new possibilities for reinventing and optimizing business processes
so teams can become more efficient, agile and productive.”

Announcing Debut of Intuit QuickBase Sync

Integration has become a strategic priority for driving innovation via
an open approach to solving business challenges by sharing data and
expertise across communities. Also at EMPOWER 2015, Intuit QuickBase is
announcing the launch of QuickBase
, a powerful new low-code data integration capability built into
the QuickBase platform. QuickBase Sync enables technical and
non-technical users alike to connect QuickBase with their application
ecosystem in just a few clicks and start syncing data automatically. No
more data scattered across application islands.

With QuickBase Sync, businesses will have their most current data in one
place, their QuickBase app, so they can create holistic reports, gain
actionable insights and make better business decisions. QuickBase Sync
currently supports integrations to popular cloud applications including
QuickBooks Online, Salesforce, NetSuite, Zendesk, Zuora, Intacct and The capability is live and fully supported in production for
Intuit QuickBase customers now.

“QuickBase Sync makes gathering and managing information a breeze,” says
Paul Lanterman of OMS Photography, an Early Access Sync customer. “Sync
has changed the way we see our business by tying together expenses
stored in QuickBooks Online and project data managed in QuickBase. We
now have the ‘Holy Grail’ of accurate, automatic reporting of profit and
loss percentages on every project.”

Intuit QuickBase strives to empower its users to become citizen
developers so they can build, customize and connect apps to their
unique requirements, while also helping to reduce the growing
application backlog of IT managers. QuickBase offers robust flexibility
at a cost its users can afford as they learn and prototype against newer
business processes and workflows during early growth years. In turn, IT
managers benefit from the security and governance capabilities needed to
maintain control and lower risk. By jointly developing and delivering
new business applications, enterprises deliver on the promise of quality
customer service, stronger operational efficiencies, more accurate
financial reporting and better HR governance policies and procedures.
