Employee Testimonials

Alice Hinshaw
Product Manager

What do you do at Quick Base?

I am a Product Manager. That means I get to help our new customers plan, build, and deploy their first apps with Quick Base. 

What does Customer-Obsessed mean to you?

Customer-Obsessed to me means always going the extra mile to make sure my clients are getting the most value out of Quick Base and to make sure they have everything they need to feel comfortable at every point in the building process. 

Tell us about a time you exhibited Quick Base's value of "Customer-Obsessed"?

After being out of the office for Empower and vacation I was checking in on the health of one of my accounts to see if they had registered for any University courses or submitted any Care cases etc. while I was away. I found they had submitted a Care case asking for ideas on how to set up a unique formula field that would count the number of records created each day and label each record with its number. I learned that this was an incredibly complex problem, so I got curious about this and decided to do a little more digging to see what I could set up. After a little tinkering I was able to come up with a creative, streamlined solution that I passed on to the client. They were thrilled I had taken the extra initiative to figure this out and we are slated to implement the solution in their app next week!
